Hey, here we are again!  Fortunately I have my little Mac iBook with me, since the Touch Pad on the MacBook Pro has a mind of it's own and won't do what I want it to do.  I'll have to fine an Apple Store and get it fixed before the "Left Turn".

Today was a slow travel day, but peaceful and tranquil both.  Lynnie needed some flax oil, so we set the Ozzie Chick for the Whole Foods Store in West Hampton, Connecticut. We got there after about seventy miles of winding, hilly roads through some very beautiful country. The store has a huge inventory of both foodstuffs, meat and a great bakery.  We had lunch there.  I had a slice of pepperoni pizza and Lynnie had one of her favorites, clam chowder.  Good food at good prices.  We tried to find a place to get gas for the coach, but ended up at a membership store, BJ's Wholesale Club.  We'll still be searching for a place tomorrow.  Prices range from $4.09 to $4.30 a gallon.  The quality must surely be improving as we travel, since the price keeps going up...
 It's been amazing to us both at how many and different are the various areas we have traveled over these last four months.  Spring has shown up nearly everywhere we've been since we left northern Texas.  It's barely here in CT, however, although the rains have shown their faces and reminded us of it's presence.  We've had several Weather Alerts on the Droid, but none have come to pass in the severity they've warned us about.  God is good, and is caring for us each day.

We're now located just outside of East Hampton in a beautiful, country campground.  The owner's parents built it when she was twelve years old.  Her name is Melissa and she has a GREAT sense of humor.  We hit it off, as you can well imagine.  She appears to be in her mid to late forties and is full of life.  The girl who checked us in, Marcia, is a very kind hearted gal and did a great job checking us in and making us welcome.  When I emailed Melissa to see about a site, I told here we have a motorhome plus a TOAD.  As you may recall. a toad is a "towed" vehicle.  Anyway, Melissa had convinced all the staff that we did, in fact, have a pet toad with us.  Enough of that.

I hope to get a few pictures to add to this edition.  See y'all latah...

We took a short through the camp.  That's what it really is, a seasonal camp mostly for folks from the area.  It has lots to do and the folks are friendly.  I found only one photo on the way, since spring has barely sprung here.

And an update on the computer... I called the Apple Store in Farmington, about thirty minutes from here and got an appointment for tomorrow morning.  It seems that some batteries "swell" and put pressure on the touch pad and cause it to malfunction.  As the tech suggested, I removed the battery and re-booted the computer via the power supply and Voila! All works fine.  The owner, Melissa, is letting us keep Shorty in our site until we return from Farmington.  Whatta gal!  Good ol' Noreaster hospitality.
