We are back at the beach and were gone a whole month! Yikes. We didn't plan it that way, I got sick and was in bed for about 10 days. We had a nice Christmas with our family - and then we house/dog/fish sat for one of the daughters. When we got home, I got sick. I hate it when that happens, LOL!
So we are back and apparently we missed a colossal storm! I'm not sure that's good because we love to watch the storms at the beach, but I'm sure there will be more this winter. There is a huge tree trunk on the shoulder of the road near the walkway to the sand. The surges had to be colossal to move that large chunk of wood.
We decided to change our cell phone service to Consumer Cellular. We had US Cellular but it was pretty spendy. So we got all signed up, bought new phones (we needed them) and went home, where my phone showed one little bar for service. I got a smart phone and Hubby got a flip phone. His works fine at home. Mine only works for messaging, no calls out and most of the time no calls in. So we decided to wait to see if my phone works at the beach. No. And Hubby's doesn't either! So we looked online to see if there is a US Cellular nearby so we can go back to them. No. What? The nearest is at Longview, WA or Hood River, Oregon. Surely this is a mistake. So, in order to make telephone calls while we are here at the beach we will have to drive to Tillamook. Oy vey. Best laid plans ...
I must remind people once again, if I have sent you a questionnaire for the family history, please, please answer the questions and return to me ASAP. I really will have to leave you out or put minimal info on you if you don't. This is not a threat, it is a fact. You will want to be included because this book is for us and our descendants. Thank you,
Ta ta for now,
