5. Firm bed slabs
6. Dehydrated potatoes and cheese
7. “Radio” fixing his supper
8. Only 54 miles left...time to strait brushing up on my French

Bud was in rare spirits when I talked to him today....back to his old self: singing silly made-up songs, trying to pull my leg by making me think he had been going the wrong way and was going to have to start all over again. He did tell me it was thundering and lightening so he was going to stop early and stay in the shelter....thought that was a fine idea. Bud met up with some people he knew from other hikes so that has been a real plus. He is now out of range and going to have to sleep in shelters for most of the week. From all I can tell from the books, he is over the worst or the worst now.This may well be the only post for a while. My school starts in the holiday over. 

These photos are SOOC taken by Buddy with his iPhone. He really loves his play toy. Double click on the mosaic to enlarge it.

  1. glad he's gotten his second wind! love the comment about brushing up on his French. :)

  2. you start school already tomorrow? wow, where did the summer go anyway? we don't start here in Wisconsin until after Labor Day. state passed a law - wanting to keep families at The Dells until then, raking in the money. guess it's alright, I have no kids so makes no difference to me. my sister the librarian in Oregon has started back already too. glad Buddy's spirits are high! maybe being back at school you won't miss him so much? hope so!!! have a great week Genie. almost forgot - love the collage. the colors/tones are two thumbs up. great job. I especially like "Radio" fixing his supper...
