Here comes 2011.

I thought it would be easy to take a few months off and put the blog on vacation while I play and romp with all the Palm Creek activities this season.....but I've certainly received a lot of friendly flak from loyal readers and their friends back home who want to keep track of what's happening here.  I can see by the counter that we still have over 100 hits each week from people looking for some kind of newsy update.  Guess I'd better dust off my camera and spend a tad more time at the keyboard.

Our household has been VERY busy with computer repairs and special training sessions which is fun for all of us.  Our son Kevin from Kansas City is visiting for a while so has been actively helping with computer repairs and maintenance.  He has been working with and building computers since the ripe old age of about 10 and knows more about the world of cyberspace than most folks can get from a textbook.  Our kitchen table has turned into a virtual workbench while he and Don work on laptops.  It seems Santa has been kind to many folks so we're busy installing new software, gadgets, upgrades, etc.  Mike Salter (whom we met through the local computer club) and I have been responding to requests for computer training classes.  Soooooo....if you hear of a friend in need, send them our way.

The Palm Creek computer club that meets on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 has been VERY active.  We have over 50 members already.  We're so glad to have Mike Salter staying in the park this year as he is a retired computer technology instructor so is a wealth of information and an entertaining speaker as well.  Mike and I have a great time with presentations and training at our weekly club meetings.

Okay....enough chatter for now.  In a few days WHEN IT WARMS UP AGAIN and I can hobble about without crutches, I'll be out with camera in hand to bring you some newsy info about park activities.    I've been laid up a bit with nasty tendonitis in my foot so don't get out as much as I'd like.  Check back this weekend.  Until then, stay dry and warm.  Remember, DON’T complain about this bit of chilly, breezy, rainy weather…….after all, you could be in New York!
