The grandparents are deeding a small piece of land to my sponsored child, Evelyn, which I'm having the home built on. This is very special for a Guatemalan female to own a home, it gives her security and a place to go for life. Women there often stay in abusive relationships, because they don't have any place else to go. Evelyn is just a couple months younger than my daughter, whom we adopted from Guatemala. This is just our small way of trying to give back to the people who have given us so much more.
Have a good trip!!!

We may have done that on purpose. As I recall, you may have been missing a filter.

You are a fine man AquaMan, my hat is off to you and your lovely wife for your continuing acts of kindness. Thank God you have the means to help those in need. I thank you for allowing TOWTA and me the privilege of adopting your adopted daughter as our granddaughter. She is a princess. God Bless you and your family.

Well, we're back at Fawn Ridge on the same site we had a month ago. Only 43 here this morning when we pulled out of Thousand Trails @ 8:00am. Just unhooked, installed the Bal Xchocks and ran the back stab jacks down and hooked up water, sewer & elec. Finished @ 9:15am. The rest can wait until it warms up. TOWTA has a 1-1/2 - 2 hour antique button collection show to give tomorrow and the following Fri and then we can stow the big container of button boards back under the bed and out of the truck.

Thanks OC, and you're welcome! I don't know about the princess thing, but she is definitely a Diva!

Emily is putting together a duffle bag full of goodies for me to take down to all the kids. I'm thinking of throwing in some rubber duckys!
