Jan.3, 2014-Friday-K- Happy belated New Year!!!!!  We hope everyone had a wonderful New Years.

Sorry for the lack of reporting but we haven't had much to report.  It has been cool (mid 50's) and still windy.  We had a typical quiet New Years and in bed at our normal times, although I did end up staying up until midnight reading stuff on the computer!!

Tom and I are avid cribbage players and before dinner (now that we can't play pool anymore!) we play a couple of hands.   Most of our playing is either on vacation or on our porch in the summer.  We have been keeping track of our wins since 1988.  So the grand total up through 2013 is Tom with 753 wins and myself with 751.  At the start of 2013 I was 15 games behind and I still couldn't catch up!

Yesterday while all you people up north were getting hit with a major snowstorm, we had 3/4" of rain and a cold front blew through with major winds and we woke up to 32 degrees with a wind chill of 24!

There could be a chance that we may end up volunteering here.  We had put in applications when we got here.  The volunteer co-ordinator said they were full as this is the prime time for volunteers.  We had told him we would be at the campground until the 3rd and in the area until April, so if they do need anything we would be around.  They stopped in yesterday and gave us more paperwork to fill out, so we will know today what is going on.  It would be nice to stay here.  If we get a position, we get free camping in exchange, we work 20 hours a week. It is hard to get your foot in the door, but is seems like once you are in it is good.

That is all for now. Tom may be posting some things later on.
