Last Saturday we spent the day at Green Lake Campground with our camping club. Kevin played golf with some of the guys in the morning, and I went shopping with the ladies. We went to the Rippin’ Good cookie outlet store and a craft shop we like in Ripon. The campground has a little 9 hole, par 3 golf course so a bunch of us played a round of golf in the afternoon. We spent the rest of the day chatting, stayed for the pot luck supper, sat around the campfire for a little while, and headed back home.
Due to our camphosting duties, we haven’t actually camped with the club this year, other than in June when they camped at our campground. But, we are very glad we were able to do some “day camping” with them, and spend time with everyone. When they asked for suggestions for next year’s schedule, I lobbied for them to come and camp at our campground again so we can participate in a full weekend with them.  Maybe, they should just camp here every month. We’ll see what happens.
While chatting with some of my friends, I was surprised at how many of them told me they were reading my blog regularly. None of them have ever left comments, so I didn’t know most of them read it. Some didn’t know about the comment feature, and others said they had tried leaving comments, but it was too confusing. 
Coincidentally, last Sunday Rick, who writes the blog Rick and Paulette’s RV Travels, posted a blog about comments. He made a good point about people wanting to leave a comment without putting in codes or waiting for the blog writer to approve the comment.
So, I have changed the moderation of comments on my blog. All you have to do to leave me a comment is click at the bottom of a post where it says comments. A little window will pop up where you type your comment. If you don’t have a Google account, you can leave it as an anonymous comment. Just tell me who you are in the message, unless you want to remain anonymous :) 
I think most blog writers will agree that we really do like to hear from you. Sometimes, it feels like no one is paying attention, so leave me some comments so I know you’re out there in cyberspace! If you have any problems with it, send me an email and let me know what happened. Maybe, it’s something I can fix from my end.
The weather this week has been cool, cloudy and windy. Yesterday was my last day volunteering at the daycare for this year. Other than that, I cleaned our large area rug on Monday and am doing some quilting. Pretty soon I’ll have some projects to show you.
We’re leaving in a little over two weeks and still have a bunch of stuff to get done including another visit to the dentist, haircuts, family visits, and getting the truck in for an oil change. The time sure has gone by quickly! I’m getting excited to be on the move again, but am also a tiny bit nervous about the adventure that lies ahead at Amazon.
Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
