Heavenly Hash . . .

Although we never really saw the sun, we awoke to much better weather this morning. In fact the temp made it all the way up to 56 degrees. And tomorrow they say we’ll see the sun and 60 degrees. We’ll see.

About 11am I went out and connected us back to shore water. I disconnected it Monday night before the big freeze, and didn’t even bother to hook it back up yesterday at all. We just stayed on our internal fresh water tank and waited out the weather.

Today, with the weather better, I was able to work both inside and out, going through and organizing bins. I want to get two bins filled and ready to take with us when we head down to Webster on Saturday to visit our son Chris and his family. That way we can drop stuff off at the storeroom at the same time. Slowly, but surely.

About 5:15 Jan and I drove over to the park office for the Wednesday Night Potluck Supper. Jan fixed her wonderful Heavenly Hash Fruit Salad yesterday so it could mellow overnight, since it’s always better that way.

And it so popular that I didn’t even get a chance to get a picture before it was partially gone. In fact I’ve learned not to wait and come back to get some for dessert, so I always get a scoop when I first go through the line.

And when I went back afterwards, it looked like the bowl had been licked cleaned. But at least I got my spoonful.

We got together at the potluck with Ed and Debi Hurlburt on the right side, then Janice and Dave Evans, and new friends Janice and Rick, and then my Janice. So we had three Jan’s and a Debi.

We had a great time with old friends and new, once again

Finishing up, my friend, Nick Russell has a writer friend, Brandon Hale, who has cancer, as well as an ill wife, and could use some help with the massive doctor bills. Friends had set up a GoFundMe site for donations.

Here’s what Nick has to say about it.

From Nick’s Blog:

Another nice guy is my author friend Brandon Hale of Day Soldiers fame. Brandon is a talented fellow who is facing a terrible challenge right now. He was recently diagnosed with cancer, and his wife Laura also has serious health issues of her own. A friend has set up a fund to help cover the huge costs of the cancer treatment and living expenses until Brandon can get back on his feet and if you would like to help, even a buck or two is very much appreciated. I would consider it a personal favor if you would please consider helping this hardworking, deserving couple by logging onto http://www.gofundme.com/DonateToBrandonHale and making a donation. Here is a link to Brandon’s blog to give you some insight into the kind of guy he is. If you knew him, you’d call him a friend, too.

So if you can help with a few bucks, Nick and I, and Brandon, would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
