Transformations at Lone Rock and the town crier returns

Thursday, September 29

Immense clouds sail across the sky.

P1140326All day there’s no sign of the raven . . . .

I miss his aerial patrols over the primitive camping area of Lone Rock, Utah.  I listen for his caws . . . .

Oh well, he must be off on another mission.  Maybe the change in weather has him lying low.

P1140327Remember the vibrant hues of the rocks in the previous post’s photos?

The water so densely blue it looks like paint?  Part of the fun of camping at Lone Rock is watching the changes to rock and water, made by light and shadow.  Today is overcast; the water’s bright blue is replaced with steel grey.  At times light breaks through and adds a sheen to the surface, giving the appearance of ice.

This rock (below) is the same one you saw in the photo at the bottom of the previous post.  The softness is caused by a light mist.

P1140328Several RVs join the Lone Rock community on the beach.

P1140329

I finally unhitch the Best Little Trailer. After several days hanging around camp, unhitching marks the end of the mourning period over Bridget.

Things need to be done.  Life goes on.

Reggie and I drive to Arizona for groceries. 

About ten miles from Lone Rock, Utah, is the Wal-Mart in Page, Arizona.  I choose a few fresh fruits and vegetables, plus some Greek yogurt. In the auto department I pick up a container of pre-mixed Dex-Cool coolant for the Perfect Tow Vehicle.

I browse the small laptops in the computer department.  Taking the advice of a reader, I’m now interested in purchasing a small notebook with hard drive storage, rather than a Chromebook that relies on “the cloud” for storage.   Nothing Wal-Mart has in stock quite fits what I want.

We return to our little home, a welcome, bright spot on a dark day.

P1140308

Later . . . .

Reggie knows he has another walk coming.  I have my face in the laptop.  Reggie is belly-down on the floor, pleading with a pathetic stare.

“Okay, okay, you’re right  . . . It’s walk time.”

We head up the paved road toward the entrance booth.  As I’ve done several times throughout this day, I scan the sky, hoping for sight of the raven.

“Oh, THERE HE IS!”

P1140334I laugh with delight as the raven commands the entrance booth.

A line of Class Cs comes to a stop.  People get out of the first RV.  Seeing no person in the booth, they walk back to the machine that takes credit card payments.

While they are out of their vehicle, the raven caws, chortles, and cackles, bringing into view a German shepherd behind the windshield.  The dog appears to be standing on the dash in a face-off with the raven.

The dog barks furiously.

The raven holds his position, continuing his tirade directed at the shepherd, until the driver comes between bird and dog.  The raven lifts off his post and circles above the incoming RVs.

Ha-ha . . . He really does own this place . . . .

“Time to go back, Reg.  It’s getting dark.”

More neighbors have moved near us, I see. . . .

P1140337

Right before we reach our campsite, the raven appears again!

Like a town crier at the end of day, he makes his way right up the main street between the rows of RVs, flying low, cawing, wings drumming.  I smile.

It’s good to have him back. 

I turn and . . . wow! a rainbow!

P1140333

Friday, September 30

P1140302

Sunshine inspires me to clean the floor of the BLT, wipe down the fiberglass surfaces, and remove smudges from the cabinet doors.  I start cleaning the bathroom, too, but, before finishing, I succumb to the temptation to relax outside with Reggie.

Aw, what the heck . . . .

“Uh-oh.  I think Chimpy is about to receive a lesson.”

P1140315

“Show him who’s boss, Reg!”

P1140317

“Oh, there he goes!  He’s trying to escape!  Catch him, Reg!”

P1140318

“Crazy Chimpy, thought he could get away . . . . ”

P1140321

“Atta boy!  Chew that silly grin off his face!”

P1140322 “Reggie, you’re nine pounds of vicious dog, you know that?”

P1140319

“But you’re cute, too.”

P1140316

More light transformations . . . .

Cliffs glowing in the distance.

P1140311

A solitary butte against a gold backdrop.

P1140310

Saturday, October 1

P1140301

Reggie and I will probably leave Lone Rock soon.  I paid the fee for our site up until Sunday (tomorrow) at which time I’ll figure out where we go next.

  1. Love those photos of Reggie!

  2. I can’t be first. Can I?

  3. Shelley in California says:

    First? I even read the post!

  4. Jeff from VA. says:

    1st ?

  5. Barb from Hoquiam! says:

    Oh top 5???

  6. Pam and Maya, Still in NY says:

    Oh I do love these photos of all the changes in the light! You are making me homesick for the desert. Thank you for all the cute photos of Reggie-man, he is a darling. Hugs to you both.

  7. Oh my goodness! So glad to see a new post – and to see that you’re doing so well. That Raven is amazing. I’m pretty sure I have never seen one anywhere near that size. The ever-changing scenery all around you is just stunning. Can’t wait to see what the next view brings – and what adventures await you. Best wishes to you both – and scratches for The Reginator.

  8. Ravens are wonderful birds, majestic in their own ways. Love the photos of the different lights on Lone Rock. Reggie is so cute in his.

  9. Barb from Hoquiam! says:

    Sue, I adore the ravens and crows too. I have a bluejay who hangs around our area (probably my 4th generation–but he knows his name is JAY!) I have a crow who has adopted JAY. 🙂 At the office I worked at last the gal there runs a wildlife rescue, and she has ravens and crows (along with other birds and critters) that have been injured in some way… They are so beautiful. And SMART! She had a pelican for years, who every spring, would build a nest, for her! A pelican nest is a good 6 ft across… She is a character!

    Reggie sure is a sweetie.
    Glad you are doing well. Rain here this morning. Heavy Rain. Friends got married last night, and the evening was crisp but lovely. We loaned them some event tents we have, just in case… am SO glad they didn’t need them for the wet stuff.

    Hugs from Hoquiam!
    Barb

  10. Susan in Dallas says:

    I think that first photo of Reggie looking at Chimpy had a bit of “stink eye” in his look! Go get ‘im Reg!

  11. Teri Live Oak Fl says:

    You have the most scenic backyard

  12. Judy in East Texas says:

    Sue and Reggie…..your Campground is beautiful.
    Stay safe out there and rock on Judy

  13. Teri Live Oak Fl says:

    You know, you’re like a fresh breeze after all this political stuff. Can’t even look at Facebook anymore.

    • Don in Okla. says:

      Ain’t that the truth!!! Were it not for these great RV blogs and Gunsmoke reruns, I would go screaming into the night!!
      Politicians are like diapers, and they need to be changed for the same reasons!!

  14. Cynthia from San Clemente says:

    The rainbow …. a sign I think – from a sweet girl approving of you and Reggie going on. Wonderful photos today of the rocks, the sky, and Mr. I’m in Charge Here!

  15. Cinandjules (in da zone) says:

    Wow! Stunning photos!
    Love the look on Reg Man’s face! Although thinking about his bestest girl made me kind of sad! He looks content..chimpy doesn’t stand a chance!
    Enjoy your day, weekend and the road ahead!

  16. Chris B and Diego says:

    Reggie always makes me smile! 🙂

  17. Pat from Mich. says:

    This must seem strange for Reggie. He goes for a walk, gets in the PTV and next time the doors open for a walk, everything has changed! And yes, he is seriously cute!

  18. Diane J says:

    Wow…..the raven looks really BIG!…..glad to see he is still around watching over you both 😉

  19. Mona from West Texas says:

    Am I missing something

  20. Aww,,, Reggie’s so sweet, I love him, but he’s so small, we could just be pen or blog pals,,, love ya Reggie,,,,, oh my human, Rusty bought me a new dog run cable and made-up a good length with a 10 foot leash so I can run back n’ forth and it’s my favorite color too, Red,, I like it a lot… My human Rusty asked me to tell all that he is taking all his medicine that his doctor gave him at supper time and his vitamin supplements in the morning, he doesn’t get dopey during the day now and we can go for walks n’ rides without him being so slow and sleepy,,,,,,,,, nice pictures and post Sue,,, oh,, Reggie dear, will you give Sue a huge hug from us?,,, thank you sweetie,,,,,,,,, Piper ?

  21. AZ Jim says:

    Great shots of the area and the Reg too. Thanks to all my fellow Blogorinos for your kind replies on the last post. BTW I get an MRI on Wed. to see why my fractured ankle isn’t healing faster. Missy, you keep truckin in the sunshine.

    • Hey there Jim, I had a bad sprained ankle too, back in 05′ of the end of July and took care of it with a rawhide splint to take the weight off it and walked from just south of Strawberry Reservoir in Utah to Richfield and from Anza, California to Holcomb Valley via the PCT and up to LaPaz Lake Nevada and it was a hurting me bad, got trailered back to southern California the end of November and went in to Loma Linda VAMC and found out that I was walking on a broken leg in 2 places at my ankle, December 11th, 05′.,,, no pain pills, I just stayed drunken the hole time till it was set and put in a cast and be cause of that episode, it ended my full-time life as a mountain man walking with 2 Donkeys all over the western part of the states ,,,,, I pray that you get that ankle healed up rightly and it’s not broken,, I’ve noticed that as us older folks gets hurt or sick, it takes us a little more time to heal good and right,,,,, God BLESS you and yours,,,,,,,,, Rusty

  22. Oh my goodness !! Reggie is a little love!!! Your photos catch his sweetness!! I have 2 crows that seem to own my little acre of ground!! I dearly love their visits,so comical!!!
    Happy to hear that you “unhitched”…
    ((((Hugs)))

  23. Cari in Plano, TX says:

    Your photos of the changing colors in the desert remind me of posts in years past showing that the desert is not just all sand and desolate countryside. I am definitely heading to this part of the country one day, maybe in my own little Casita. That’s still on my wish list due to some other unexpected expenses.

    I agree that the rainbow might be a sign from Bridget that she approves of your location and she is watching out over you.

    The story and photo of the crow at the main gate is cute – he’s checking out the new arrivals. I’m glad he returned to your spot, to keep an eye on you!

    The photos of Reggie and Chimpy are priceless – he is such a cutie, and he looks rather pleased with himself for winning the fight.

  24. Rover Ronda (WA) says:

    Interesting to see the change of colors. Great pics! Especially nice to see Reggie and his new bed. Chimpy better mind his P’s & Q’s?

  25. karen waskow says:

    Hi Sue, et al.,

    I’ve been here hanging around in the background for a few months now probably. I live in Eugene, OR. My plan is to be retired, mostly, in about 18 months. Don’t know about full timing or not, at this juncture. More appropriately, having never camped in any type of rig, I just need to get started.

    There are lots of things that keep me tethered to being here, happily, and I also look forward to exploring what my life will be like when I’m in my rig even before being “retired”. I’m thinking by Jan/Feb will have enough for the down-payment for what I have in mind and best to just get started with little trips first. I’ve barely seen anything in my own state and Oregon has a lot to offer.

    Sue: I so appreciate being able to follow along in your journey and how you do it; the choices you make, how you navigate. I always wonder how you decide what next for example:). And, today your post is a good example of what I’m learning to do in my life even now, “do I have to make that decision now?”. Usually the answer is a resounding “no”. That leaves a lot of room to be with what is, let that inform me and move more in concert with what’s unfolding around me and inside of me. Seems like a more peaceful way to live then the more traditional way that most of us choose.

    I look forward to continuing to follow along and learn and grow and, who knows, soon enough it will be me posting my own adventures.

    warmly,

    – karen

  26. Absolutely great photos of Lone Rock! That Reggie is so darn cute – love how he plays with his toys!

  27. Rochelle in IN says:

    We’re sitting here in our screen house overlooking the mountains near Asheville, NC, enjoying a 2-week vacation with our small 5th wheel. We watched the clouds in the valley this morning and are now looking out at a gorgeous blue sky with white puffy clouds. No fall color yet -it’s a little early for that.

    So what could possibly make this day any better? Why, a new post from RVSue, that’s what! I love the pics of Reggie – he is certainly the king of his domain. I laughed out loud at the comment about him giving Chimpy the stink eye. I also enjoy your pictures of the rocks in their various “moods”. Thanks for brightening my day!

  28. Linda-NC says:

    Hi Sue-Chimpy never had a chance from The Reg! Cuteness and delight that dog. If I ever meet Reggie on the road I owe him a new toy just for the entertainment value he has given :}} Beautiful pics of the rocks in the area. Always a pleasure to read a new post and enjoy the scenery. Hugs to you both .

  29. Geri says:

    The play of light and shadow on the rocks is simply so mesmerizing! You can watch those rocks all day and from minute to minute the light changes go from subtle to dramatic! I am so glad you had the time to spend in this beautiful place! I agree with everyone else, the rainbow was a visit from Miz B just to let you know she is still around you!
    That Reggie! What a character! One minute he gives Chimpy that “I’m a bad-ass” look to the triumphant win grin! He is really the entertainer! Give him a few belly rubs from us!
    We took DoogieBowser off his meds and started feeding him canned Mighty Dog food. The meds were making him groggy, x-mild narcotic but you could tell he was stoned! He is now fully awake and eating better and coughing still, but not quite as bad. We know it can change any minute, but today is a good day!
    Chuck and I are building a new glass room so we can start filling the orders coming in! It has been such a hot summer we just stopped making Mermaid Tears for a few months. But now, (thank you Lord!) the weather is low 80’s days and mid 60’s nights and we are ready to get back to work!
    Looking forward to see where you go from here! If you are going to have a mailing address soon, I have something for Reggie! 🙂

  30. Marilyn Moore NW AZ says:

    Hello again. Delightful post and photos Sue. My friend Don in Flagstaff posted some of his photos of that area’s trees in full fall colors. Not quite nearby and so different than Lone Rock. Hoping that your next ‘home and backyard’ has the warm days and cool sleeping nights. Good idea and reminder to get the anti-freeze early. NOAA is predicting near freezing temp Monday night here in Mohave County.

  31. Denise - Richmond VA says:

    Hi, Sue,

    Thursday’s rainbow was a sign from Bridget – letting you know that she is ok and happy to see you feeling better, and getting back to routine. ❤️ ?

    I love the play of color on the rocks and water. It almost looks as if you are experiencing different seasons. Reggieman, you are just too cute! In the last picture, he looks much bigger than is mighty nine pounds! Glad to see that Mr Raven was not falling down on the job. Without a human attendant at the entry booth, someone has to be there to explain the rules! 🙂

    Have a good evening, Sue! I hope those close neighbors are quiet. If not, at least you will be moving on in the morning. Good luck on your search for the perfect laptop replacement. Sending love and hugs to you and Reggie from me and Gracie pup!! 🙂

  32. Pauline in Mississippi says:

    WOW!!! Stunning pictures! The scenery is breathtaking. Those rock formations are amazing and the light changes in the color are so interesting.!!
    The pictures of Reggie and his Chimpy are so cute!!!
    Safe travels!
    Love to you and Reggie

  33. MnDreamer says:

    It seems that Lone Rock has been the perfect place for you to draw within for a bit and complete your period of mourning. I have never before been attracted to rocky landscapes, but your beautiful photos have given me a fresh look, and I find them astonishingly beautiful, enhanced by the presence of the raven.
    And then there’s Reggie—he is just so cute!
    Thanks, Sue, for sharing your view.

  34. Chuck Hajek says:

    Reggie, you are 9 pounds of barely controlled energy!!!!

  35. Deena in Phoenix, AZ says:

    Wonderful pictures and thoughts of the transformations at Lone Rock. I’m glad the Raven and the Rainbow came to visit. Reggie is adorable and Chimpy, well Chimpy is there for his Reggie. Safe traveling.

  36. Virginia620 (Mobile AL) says:

    Hugs to you both. Beautiful pix. Reggie is just. Too. Darn. Cute. Safe travels.

  37. Millie Hubbard says:

    Love the photos if the sun on the buttes – so colorful. Glad to see the Reggieman is keeping Chimpie in his place — to cute!

    Good to hear Piper is taking good care of Rusty.

    Safe travels Sue and Crew!!

  38. Rhodium in RI says:

    Wow, what a difference from Colorado. I recall you got a satellite radio for the trailer, is it a good addition?

  39. Roger, Summerhaven, Alberta says:

    I’ve been reading all your older posts and the comments from the beginning, still back in early 2014.
    I’m somewhat concerned you have to be constantly adding anti-freeze. Have you ever had any of the hoses changed? The van is 11 years old, that’s somewhat beyond the life expectancy of radiator and heater hoses. One engine overheat event can be extraordinarily expensive as Becky at Interstellar Orchard just found out when one of her rad hoses developed a leak. The antifreeze has to be going somewhere! Replacing the hoses now would be fairly inexpensive.
    Just concerned for your well-being!

  40. Mike says:

    Chromebooks are good for surfing, no virus problems, or updates, to pay for, good security for free. Having a small Lenovo for your HD needs is good, keeping your Windows machine off the internet as much as possible, avoiding Malware and hacks, it works for me. Reggie sure is a cutie.

  41. Denise - Richmond VA says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AZ JIM!!! ?. ?

  42. ApplegirlNY says:

    The largest raven we ever saw was up near Old Forge in the Adirondacks. It was almost 3 ft. tall. An amazing bird, so amazing we still talk about it a decade later. They are mysterious and majestic looking.

    Safe travels ahead, Sue.

  43. rvsueandcrew says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AZ JIM! WE LOVE YOU!

    Today is the 80th birthday of one of my most supportive and loyal readers. I treasure AZ Jim’s presence on my blog; his comments, poems, and stories are a delight. Read between the lines and you find a caring, exceptionally fine human being.

    Thank you, Jim. Enjoy your birthday! Warm wishes to you and Detta for the year ahead!

    Love,
    Sue and Reggie

  44. Kay Dattilio says:

    Sue and Mr. Studmuffin,

    You are taking me to places I will probably never see. Lone Rock is just stunning! Thank you for the travels!

    Kay from KC MO!

  45. Jules MN says:

    I must say Reggie has the most expressive ears! On our trip to Alaska we had our own raven friend. He had three hotdogs in his beak at one time. Thank you for the wonderful pictures.

  46. rvsueandcrew says:

    GOOD MORNING, BLOGORINOS!

    It has been a pleasure sharing my photos of Lone Rock and this part of Lake Powell. I hope you have the opportunity to travel here. A very conscientious, raven workamper is here to welcome you!

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. You make this place special.

    Today Reggie and I move camp. I’m not sure if there is internet signal at our destination. We will be in touch as soon as we can.

    Until then, be well, be safe, be happy!

    Love,
    Sue

  47. weather says:

    Beautiful photos, Sue, what a beautiful and refreshing post. By your example in one short story you show that beyond mourning periods or changes as life goes on, it will be different , yet still wonderful

    …hoping kept you looking for him- so you saw your raven appear -You remind us that on this good earth and here in Blogorinoland there are ones that meet and stay with us until we’re ready to move on. Whether it’s a mist or furry companion that is given to soften hard times or landscapes , or one welcome bright spot found though the day may be dark, Light will appear and transform our view. It may the promise given with each rainbow , a new day with sunshine that inspires , or reading on her blog that a friend laughed with delight… in this world are reasons to be grateful and smile like I am as I type this.

  48. Cynthia from San Clemente says:

    Wow, this is the first time I’ve been able to reach the blog since Oct.1st. – it kept saying the server was down. Now I see you posted on Oct. 2nd that you might not have a signal for a few days, but that isn’t the same as the “server down” message, is it? I started to get worried sick. Sue, I really wish there was a way for us to know you’re ok. You know how we’re all supposed to have a place we contact in case of emergency so our family knows we’re ok? I just hate when there’s something wrong with the blog and we don’t know if it’s just a technical issue or if you’re in trouble. And then I start thinking about all these blogorinos who care about each other and if the blog just disappears we have no way to communicate with each other. OK, I know I’m being a bit hysterical but honestly, I get soooooo worried.

    • Linda Rose, Muffin, Murphy, Molly & Midgy in Carmichael, CA says:

      Cynthia, you’re not alone. I was less concerned when it said the site was down. More likely to be technical issues I’m thinking.

  49. Linda Rose, Muffin, Murphy, Molly & Midgy in Carmichael, CA says:

    9 days without any post? I don’t remember, has that happened before? Hoping all is well. Thinking about you Sue and Reggie.

    • Cynthia from San Clemente says:

      I don’t remember Sue ever going 9 days without a post. I subscribe to other blogs that use WordPress and they haven’t been down. Is WordPress a server? I’m so not technical. I just know I’ve been checking the blog everyday, three or four times a day and couldn’t reach anyone.

  50. Dave R says:

    She was on the Bayfield Bunch blog indicating that she was ok. So I gather its something with the WordPress site. Don’t know for sure.

  51. Anna from NC says:

    Gosh, I don’t comment much at all but have been a regular reader for years…i’ve been worried and kept checking and checking. Glad to know there was a ‘sighting’ on another blog!

  52. Judy Johnson says:

    Sooo glad to see you’re back, Sue and Reggie…missed you terribly! Add me to the list of blogorinos who were very concerned about you. Welcome home!!

  53. rhodium, RI says:

    If the 503 notice was a test of internet searching skills, it was a good one. Glad to see you back and one hopes in good spirits. At least I know you were not in the papers!

  54. BadgerRickInWis says:

    There you are.

  55. MollyLuvsRoadtrippin (WA) says:

    Miss you Sue! Grrr technology can be so frustrating. Wish Reggie could “teach it a lesson” for you.

  56. ApplegirlNY says:

    YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!! You’re back! So happy.

  57. Renee Galligher - Idaho says:

    Oh my goodness, Sue! I missed you. Dave and I went on a two week trip in our fifth wheel up to Montana, Northern Idaho, and covering bits of Washington and Oregon in our travels, but . . . I was not able to ready your blog due to the problem! So, so happy that you and Reggie boy are doing well. The comment you made about unhitching marks that the mourning period over Bridget is over touched my heart. That’s something that I would do! Loved the photos of Reggie. Such a cutie pie. But, just tell him that he is vicious!

  58. A gal in Maple Valley, WA says:

    Still here. You can’t ditch me that easily. 🙂 Looking forward to up-dates whenever they post. I have a ‘herd’ of fallen leaves that needs to be jumped into and then kicked around. General foolishness and horseplay. Daily Rx.

    Sending a package of {((( care )))}.

  59. Denise in Georgia says:

    I have been worried also. Hope to year from Sue and Reggie soon!

  60. Woohoo glad to see the technical issues are getting ironed out! 🙂

  61. I noticed that you were gone but read somewhere that you were ok.

    On Sept. 30th I went in for a quad bypass. Wife says I went into prep at 7am and into ICU recovery at 7pm. I don’t remember much. Now me, the cat (Fu) and two dogs (Ripley and Mindy) spend our days “recovering”. Which, near as I can tell, means lots of naps.

    I never thought I’d say this, but I’m getting tired of naps….

    Getting old is not for sissies, that’s for sure.

    Glad to see you’re back. 🙂

    Craig

    • A gal in Maple Valley, WA says:

      Craig,

      Glad your procedure went well. Was it expected/planned or were you rushed in? How was the Jello? Did you get that care over there or have to come over the pass? Are you binge-watching TV shows? Are you gonna get a zipper tattoo over your scar? Will you be able to go out and play soon?

      Is there ‘frost on the pumpkins’ over there? 37* low and 62* high full sun here today.

      It’s not a nap without a furry friend with paws. It’s just thinking horizontally.
      🙂

      • I knew something was “up”. I’d had 3 angioplasties in the past 20 years so I knew the feeling. Went in to local ER and was kept overnight but no more symptoms. I then had to push for more diagnostics… finally got my old cardio guy to set me up with an office visit and then stress test. Office visit cancelled the stress test; figured if I did not know what was going on by then…

        So went in for angiogram in Spokane (big regional heart center) and they decided to go for a bypass.

        I’m having some chest pain but trying to avoid opioids as much as possible. Tired a lot. Got a local post-op with my family doc tomorrow.

        This is no longer cutting-edge surgery, of course. They’ve got it down pat. But at my age, 73, despite being very active right up to this summer, it’s still an issue.

        Yes, a furry pal next to me makes it work better. Makes me feel guilty about getting up. Can’t sleep in a normal bed yet… sleeping in my big recliner.

        Thanks for your interest. 🙂

        Craig

    • Cynthia from San Clemente says:

      Craig: Take care of yourself, relax. You’re lucky to have furballs to help you recover – they are such a blessing. Good luck and healing to you.

  62. Susan in Dallas says:

    When I opened up your website this afternoon I felt just like a kid getting that first look at the Christmas tree with all the presents underneath! So glad you’re back and hoping all is well with you and Reggie.

  63. Oh, you’re back, you’re back, you’re back! We missed you so much. Stopped worrying about you once word circulated that you were OK…but you were definitely missed. Now I’m going to order the stuff I had been putting off while your Amazon link wasn’t available! 🙂

    • FloridaScott says:

      Hi Sue & Reggie,
      Your Back!! Glad to see your blog up again. Hope you guys are alright. Allot of Blogorinos worried about you. Look forward to a new post. Be Well!

  64. AZ Jim says:

    Well it’s not what it will be I’m sure but at least you are up and running again. Good on you Missy…

  65. C.W. IN TEXAS says:

    ME TOO .
    I MISSED READING YOUR BLOG , AND I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO THINK.
    ALL THE TIME HOPING YOU WERE O.K.

    GLAD YOUR BACK.

  66. Lisa in San Diego says:

    so happy today to see those two sweet faces at the top … you all were missed!

  67. Linda from Oregon says:

    So glad to see your site is back up. Look forward to hearing how things are going. We were at a fiberglass event this weekend and I told lots of women about your blog and I said Sue can do it so you can do it if you really want to go full time.

  68. Jo in OR says:

    Missed you Sue and Reggie! I read your blog before I go to sleep at night so haven’t slept well while you were MIA. Hope all is well.

  69. Martha in PA says:

    Sue is back! All’s well with the world!

  70. Laurie in NC says:

    What a nice surprise this morning! I too have been looking for you. Figured it was a computer glitch, but sure missed reading your blog and keeping up with all the Blogorinos!

  71. weather says:

    Welcome back , Sue, and Reggie!!! It’s wonderful to see your blog open! I hope that going forward you find everything involved with it is an easy and smooth process. Enjoy whatever you’re up to until you are ready to post again. My day , and likely everyone in Blogorinoland’s , feels brighter now 🙂

  72. Carol says:

    I’m a big worry-wart and will remain so until I find a new post of yours. I could squeeze that little Reggie, such a joyful little fellow. Bless you for the pleasure you give readers, Sue. Your pictures help satisfy my long life’s yearning to see all you are seeing. Thank you. Thank you. Thrice a thank you.

    Whew….You’re back!

  75. Val R. Lakefield On. says:

    Glad your blog page is open once again. Bayfield Al did post to say you were ok & had left a message. I was glad to read that on his blog. You were missed.

  76. Don in Okla. says:

    HOORAY!!! Welcome back!! You and Reggie have been missed! I hope all is well.

  77. Phyllis in Phoenix says:

    Glad to see you back. I was worried. Hope all is well.

  78. Joyce Sutton says:

    Oh there you are and see posts from yesterday. I thought I checked last night when I ordered from Amazon Computers and the internet such wonderful and terrible things

  79. rvsueandcrew says:

    GOOD MORNING, BLOGORINOS! WE’RE BACK!

    I apologize for leaving you in the dark this past week. Work had to be done to keep the blog alive and growing. I’m sorry for causing anyone worry.

    You may wonder why I didn’t write this comment sooner. Well, the blog opened for you sooner than it did for me. I was still receiving that maintenance page. Weird, huh. I could not write you a message last night. This morning, first thing when I turned on my laptop, I found I was able to “get in.” And what do I find? Several blogorinos waiting and welcoming!

    I have a few more things that must be done and then I’ll work on a post.

    I missed you, too!

    Love you,
    Sue

  80. Carol in Frisco, TX says:

    So very happy that you are back up and running. Missed living vicariously through you!! Was very concerned like all of your other blogorinos.

    Hugs to both you and Reggie.

    Looking forward to hearing more from your travels and seeing more extraordinary photos of our beautiful country. And, of course, photos of that wonderful boy–Reggie!

  81. kgdan from Wapato, WA says:

    Glad to see it’s a ‘blog’ thing and that you and Reggie are fine. Missed you!

  82. charles brooks says:

    Hugs. Kathy.
