John sent the photos that Charles and Dolly Crider provided. The rest of this narrative is John's. He wrote, "the park was small, clean, and very friendly. Everyone seemed to get along great. Of course Charles and I picked on each other the whole time!

"Dolly was her usual most gracious hostess and cook Friday morning and lunch. Friday morning she cooked scrambled eggs, with potatoes, and onions. Linn cooked thick sliced market bacon. It was piled on tortillas and there was nothing left!

"Friday at lunch, Dolly fixed "Sloppy Joe's", again no leftovers. Friday night we went out to dinner and were joined by our oldest, Matthew, who brought his wife Laura (cancer survivor-at least for now), and our granddaughter Kaitlyn (10 yrs) and we had a wonderful visit.

"Saturday morning, Dolly and Linn fixed the eggs and bacon-WHEW! Someone there said "Camping Calories don't count!" Maybe not, but my uniform is a little tight! Cleaners must have shrunk it...

"Lunch on Saturday was cold cuts that Charlene and Larry brought. Saturday dinner was Linn's hamburgers."

John wrote, "The dog in the last two photos is one of our shepherds, Tasha age 2. We had the other two, Oskar (10yrs) and Molly (5yrs) with us, but I guess they were bashful when Charles was there with the camera."

"The campground had a music group Saturday night from 7-10 PM, and they were pretty good with old time country songs."

John concluded, "We had a really good time, despite the weather - rain and very cool. The only down side was, we didn't get to stay and visit long enough! Wish y'all could have been there!"
