That's a eight pound roast there.
Jim cooked it to perfection....medium rare. I did have a little bite and it was very tender and flavorful.
Wayne over on the left took the place of the Keelings in Tucker Ponds, as they had to leave when Paul couldn't get rid of an annoying cough. Come to find out he has whooping cough and is finally getting some relief after a long diagnosis period.
Afterwards we all spent time relaxing and chatting about our summer season. We won't be meeting again before the end of the season, so we all talked about our winter plans. Happily they will all be coming back next summer.
We've had a really good summer. We are sad that Jerry and Rita had to leave early so Rita could get her shoulder worked on...we miss them so! And then the Keelings had to leave, but good ole Fred took up the slack and ran three campgrounds himself...bless his heart!
Next summer we will be back to Big Meadows....anyone want to spend next summer living next to Jim and I and be camphosts in Big Meadows? It will be all new having been closed for a three year reconstruction. We're excited to see all the new campsites.
We have one more big holiday weekend ahead of us and then a few days to close everything down and we are out of here. Weather is getting colder at night; already have had eight inches of snow on Wolf Creek last week. Trees and bushes are beginning to turn yellow, so it is time to think about moving out.
After Labor Day Week we'll move to Alamosa for about a month so Jim can attend his high school reunion the end of September. In the meantime we'll visit our kids in Santa Fe and mid-October we'll take off for Oklahoma/Texas area.
That's it for today. Remember, you are loved.
