From Milwaukie, OR

We finally made it here.  We arrived around noon and then Mark tried to get everything set up.  For some reason, our electrical keeps tripping the breaker, so we will need to use the generator in the RV until Mark can find the parts to fix it.  We also need to get another hose so we can hook up to water.  We are just really happy to have landed, and the family has been contacting us to welcome us back.  Since I wasn’t able to show pictures from yesterday, I’ll include some of those today.

Umm…On your mark…?

OK, so Mark and I were talking about things today and he says we probably could have left by Sunday except that we need to stop in Green Bay to pick up a part so the RV furnace will work, and the supplier won’t be open on Sunday.  It’s looking like we won’t be leaving Door County until Monday.

Sometimes, a picture isn’t worth a million words…

Because the fall colors have been so glorious, I was carrying my camera with me to work and to church in case I should see something I had to shoot.  Last Sunday, I was driving home from church with my camera on the front seat beside me.  I suddenly had to step on the brake and the camera fell off the seat.  The next picture I tried to take, the lens wouldn’t focus.  🙁  I have seen all sorts of things since that I would have loved to photograph and share with you, but I can’t.  Therefore, I haven’t written.  Continue reading

From Missoula, MT

This morning, Mark and I packed up the truck and put the dog in the back and headed out.  This is the first time in several years that we have traveled east from Portland through the gorge, and I had almost forgotten how beautiful it is.  There were signs of the fire that burned in the area, but it is still beautiful and I could barely put my camera down.

A resting place

Fred and his son, David, went to the funeral home to take care of details and they found what I am told is a really pretty coffin.  I asked if it was a short one, and David said she’ll have room enough to roll around in it.  I hope so because she may be turning in her grave if the family keeps going the way it is.  Prayers are very much needed for unity, patience, and grace.
