Back from Vacation. Hello, All! Carol, Mary and I packed a lot into just a week or so of vacation. We visited Carol's Aunt Evelyn in Spindale, NC, on July 2, then later that day went to Montreat for the Christian Life Conference, which carried through until noon on Tuesday. Then from there we journeyed to the Mt. Pisgah Campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway, about 17 miles west of Asheville, and stayed there until Friday morning. From there Carol and Mary started out to Austin, arriving Saturday night, and I set off for Miami, stopping along the way for a day in Eastman, GA, with Ann and Don Dobbs, my aunt and uncle. I arrived home Sunday afternoon.

The camping experience was "eventful", but I will just mention here one of those events. On Thursday, we came down to Asheville and toured the Thomas Wolfe Memorial. This was a fascinating visit, and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Asheville. Yesterday, back home in Miami, I went to the public library and checked out Look Homeward, Angel. I read it years ago, and its time to read it again.

More to report on later posts.

(Macon is supposed to get his DSL line hooked up today, so I hope to see him appear again soon and tell us about his new life in Austin.)
