Men's Monday Meme - It's Vacation Time - Or at least I wish!
Mood:  down
Topic: Men's Monday Meme


Yep, I'm still down. Computer problem has not been fixed and I am discouraged. I have been hopping around between my wife's laptop and my son's laptop and it is not fun. Not only that, but you won't believe how many things that you have stored on your laptop. For example, I am going to have to go to another Men's Monday Meme post to retrieve one of the meme logo's and then save it on to one of my small zip drives and then put it in this post. Then later, I'm going to have to hope that I remember my Mr. Linky password because it was programmed into my laptop to remember. ARGHHH!!! To much stuff! I hate this.

All of this mess makes me think about just getting away for a vacation. I had some wonderful vacations when I was younger. I don't know if I could pick out a favorite. I remember going to Massachusetts when I was 12 or 13. We toured a battleship and a submarine ~ I got stuck in the seatbelt in the parking lot of the battleship ~ good memories Smile. I recall touring Plymouth and Cape Cod ~ I ate my first seafood at a restaurant there ~ hey, I was from central Pennsylvania, not a very seafood eating place! One of my favorite memories was going to the Boston Aquarium and then touring Boston itself. I grew up loving history and still do today.

Other favorite vacations were to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Gettysburg (as you can see we were a history loving family), driving the Blue Ridge parkway, touring Mackinac Island, and, of course, our trips to Florida and Disney World before we actually moved there.

I could go on for days about our vacations growing up. I loved them and I'm sure I will write many more posts about them. I have a lot of great memories. We've created some great memories with our kids as well. I love vacations.

That leads me to the question of the week:

What about you? Do you have some great vacation memories from growing up? Or, perhaps you've taken some pretty fun vacations with your own wife and kids. Tell us about your favorite vacations memory.

Don't forget the rules for the meme:

  1. This is a man's meme, so the answers must be the answers from a man. Either the man can answer on his blog, or a wife can interview her husband for her blog. However, if the wife puts it on her blog, she must stay true to what her husband said.
  2. You are encouraged to put one of the Men's Monday Meme buttons found to the left on your blog. Just copy the code below the button of your choice. The more folks who link, the more readers you may have to visit your blog.
  3. You may answer the question any time during the week up through next Monday. After you answer the question, add the address to your post to the Mr.Linky below. If you could, please only add the direct link to the post to make it easier for readers to find the entry.
  4. My answer along with a new question will be posted next Monday. The new Mr. Linky will be added at midnight Monday night or sometime within the next couple of days after that Wink.

And here's the new Mr. Linky:

AHHHHH! Did you hear that scream echoing throughout the land?
Mood:  down
Topic: General
Yes, that scream that you heard was me. I was yelling because my computer has crashed for yet a third time in just over a year. This time, however, it had help from two little hoodlums. One with the last name of Tinkel and one not (next door neighbor boy). They decided that it would be fun to play Toontown on my computer, tripped over the cord where it was charging, and down came computer, hard drive and all. I am presently trying to install Ubuntu. Ubuntu miraculously was able to retrieve all of my data from the other two crashes, and I am praying it can retrieve the files from this hard drive as well. Such is life. It really is partially my fault. I knew that there was a screw missing from the hard drive and, sure enough, it fell out and was obviously damaged. Pray that I can retrieve the files that I need. I am on my wifes computer right now and will keep you posted (no pun intended Undecided). Thanks for all of your prayers.

Finally Some Day Camp Pictures are Up!
Mood:  happy
Topic: Ministry
Finally some pictures of Day Camp 2 ~ held last week. The slide show begins with some Bible Teaching and general pictures, followed by some of our game time and, of course, water day pictures! The best pictures this week are of our baby food eating contest. Two teams lined up and they had to run down to a chair with bags on it, pick a bag, open it, and eat three bites of whatever baby food was in the bag. Of course we picked yummy vegetables and meat foods. As you can see by the looks on the kid's faces they will never complain about Mom's cooking again!

Thanks, everyone, for all of the prayers and support. In the environment that we are working in, there is a lot of distraction and constant drama. Your prayers are deeply felt, needed and appreciated. Please don't stop! We have another week of day camp next week. I'll be blogging about that one as well, so keep tuning in!

I know! I know! My blog looks slightly different! It's Clean!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: General

The Bears cleaned their room. And in the process, my sidebar got cleaned up. In fact, it's empty. That's really a very good thing! I finally found out how to fix my problems. In doing so, however, I had to erase everything on my sidebar. Don't worry (as if you really were worrying Laughing), I'm going to redo it better than ever and put things in the right place. Look for some fun changes in the near future! Thanks for putting up with the mess!
