Long time no post.

   The summer is moving along very fast. Lots of things going on. We had a great vacation, altho Cedar Point was a little disapointing. I was too fat to ride 3 of the coasters. The seat belt on 3 of the rides that have the over the shoulder bar with a seat belt connection were too short for me, as well as a lot of other men and women. I could fit into the seat ok., but the shoulder bar would not lock in place.
   We had good weather thru the two weeks until the last few day in the Detroit area. Luckily the day we did Greenfield Village it was overcast and not bad out.....the rest of the time it was HOT.
We had a great time with the kid's and grandkid's. Niagra Falls was as touristy as ever, as was The Henry Ford(that's what they call the museum/village/Ford Rouge plant/imax theater these days). We did the factory tour where they build the F-150 pickup, but the plant was shut down for vacations, so it was pretty boring. It was part of a package deal.

   We are currently in my brother's front yard and will leave here next Wednesday to go back to the kids driveway for a few days before heading to Wisconsin Dells for a weekend of boating
   We have been having problems with the Verizon Mifi that we connect to the internet with for some time now and ended up taking the device and our computer to a Verizon store. They spent over an hour removing old software for the first two devices and adding the latest upgrades in softwar to the device and also some to Vista that I had not installed. So far it is working fine.

   Other than that, just trying to cope with the hot, dry weather. My brothers yard is brown, and like most areas we are under a no fire ban.

   Hope all is well with you, write when you can and let us know how your life is getting on.
Love to all of ya,

Jim and Linda
