August 29

WORK, WORK, WORK !! ! ! !
It seems like that is all I've been doing lately. My last paycheck I worked 95 hours and had taken 3 days off to go to SD. Good thing I'm only part time. I am actually part time---at the store, waitressing, cooking and cleaning cabins. But all together, they become full time.
Last Monday, I went on a 12 mile hike in the Snowy Mtn Range. Donna, Jim and Russ tagged along. It took 6 hours and at the end we stopped in Centennial and had pizza and beer at the Bear Tree Cafe. They have the best pizza in WYO!!
Joanne Gabrielson came over from Pocatello Id. to visit for a couple days. Her and I and another friend floated the Shoshone River in Cody last summer. We were all high school buddies.
Russ and I have to work tomorrow, but in the afternoon we will be going to Centennial to listen to a Blues Band. They have a band every weekend and it is fun to get away once in a while.
THEN---on Tuesday, Donna (sis) and I are going for a hike in the Rawah Wilderness down in Colo. Hopefully we can go for 3-4 days.
Have a great week!

Hey, a post!

We are finally back on line here at Woods Landing.
I'm still working a lot, now not only cleaning cabins, working in the store and waitressing but have now started cooking in the cafe. I like it all and am totally worn out each and every night.
I was supposed to go on a hike in the Grand Tetons but problems arose and it was canceled for the moment.
We had some great neighbors this year. Jo and Rick Geveart from Oklahoma spent time here. Rick works for the Forest Service and Jo is a kindergarten teacher. Jo had to leave on Sunday to go home and start work. We got really close and many tears were shed when she left. She will be my friend forever and I love her dearly.
I have been spending a lot of time with my friend Russ. We will head to Arizona sometime in the fall and spend more time together.
I'm finally happy again.
I'll try to post more often now that we have INTERNET!
