This That & The Other Thing

This has been a fairly busy week in the McCracken Camp. Alan has completed 2 of the six wells has contracted for one developer and several more jobs have lined up to be done hopefully before Christmas! I found out that I am really not a very good camper even with a fully equipped travel trailer. Big surprise there! It rained and was cold most of the time we were in Norwood so we spent a lot of time indoors reading & playing. Alan had to come back down in valley Wednesday night to gather supplies so the little ones and I came with him and got to stay home!!! Yah for me.

I have been spending the last few days catching up on housework and doing business books. Figured out we had enough money in the business to give ourselves a paycheck. That is always a nice thing to discover.

Stupid horses got out last night. Looks like one of them cut his leg badly and tore some ligaments so it will have to be put down this fall. It took myself and aproximately 10 neighbors and mom & dad McCracken about 45 minutes to get them pinned back up. Anybody want a horse?

Dravin & Krista Mc are supposed to be around sometime this weekend. I hope that works out. It will be nice to see them again. Their kids are so much fun and my boys have a blast with them.

Alans family on the McCracken/Pfister side are having a family reunion this weekend so I need to make some things to take to it. Probably brownies and sandwiches as that is the easiest. You all know what a gourmet chef I am.

Mom mc & Cendie are going to Wash next week for the Beach Party. Wish I could go too. But that is highly unlikely. Do I sound jealous? Perhaps this winter we will make it that direction.
I should probably get off of here and make some lunch as Alan & the boys are on their way home. Love you all please leave and comment and let me know you visited.

Hi!! It does sound like a busy summer. I'm sorry the camping didn't work out. We could use a little of the cold out here. I am a baby about the heat. I stay in all of the time. I wish I could be going out to Washington also. Maybe next summer. Miss you!!

It does sound like you have been busy. I'm sorry the camping didn't go that well for you. It would be neat if you could be at the beach party too. I really would like to go, but it depends on the balance of our checkbook by then.

Sis Stubby,

Beach Party is a weekend that the Olympia breathern do for the teenagers. I hear it is a lot of fun although I have never got to go myself. This may be the last year they have it. The organizers are rebelling.

I love you even if you don't like to camp. I do not want a horse. And I for one would LOVE to see you come out this way. Love AMber

Souds like there is going to be a pretty good turn out for the bech party this year. We are looking forward to it.

I, too, wish you could come to the beach party. But at least we will be getting to see Aunt Minnie, Aunt Cendie, Lucinda, and Jolene. I think it is going to be a lot of fun. We just have to have a beach party every year - it's so fun, and there are so many brethren and Young Kids. Maybe next year our family will have to do the planning - I'll be 17 then, and Kali will be almost 16, so...

Anyway, whether or not there are any more beach parties, I plan to enjoy this one!

Hey, Sis. JoAnn. I forgot to send your copy of the CD out with Aunt Cendie. I did give her her copy, though, so you will be able to burn off her CD. Sorry I forgot, though!

I agree once you grow up and have to do all of the work of camping it's not as much fun anymore! I think that I would enjoy going again though.Someday. We never go camping here.
