So sorry for being so negligent in my blogging this summer. I can't come up with any acceptable excuses for lack of attention to this single responsibility that Sally has given me. We arrived in Connecticut on June 12th. The weather for the first two weeks after our arrival was fantastic. Daily highs averaged in the 70's and the lows at night were in the 50's. Perfect sleeping weather. Most areas of the state had their second wettest June on record. This area had about 9 inches of rain in June which is one reason why the temperatures were so cool.

Like all good things...This Too Must End!!! Summer is almost over and it's time to head home. This summer has exceeded our expectations in every way!! Sally and I have made new friends and have been able to spend more time with family here in New England than we have been able to spend in years. We have seen things that before this we could only imagine. Sally said that New York was never on her bucket list of things to see but now we are discussing another trip to New York City next year. Cape Cod was fantastic and the beaches were beautiful. We saw mansions in Newport Rhode Island that could stand against any in Hollywood. We have made friends with people here who will be part of our lives for years to come. ... read more

Our daughter Kelly has asked me several times to blog about the campgrounds where Sally and I are camping in Connecticut so here goes. The Campground is called Acorn Acres which is located in Bozrah Connecticut. Bozrah is located about 8 miles from the town of Norwich Connecticut which is in the southeastern part of the state. The campgrounds are about 3 miles off the highway, in the woods, so prior to this trip I always needed someone to lead me in and out since I only came out here once every two or three years when I was home on vacation. Acorn Acres has been in operation since 1968. The owner is a close friend of my mom and dad's and I would venture to say that most of my nieces and nephews have worked ... read more
