Have we lost our compassion???

Posted 04-05-2012 at 11:37 PM by Chowhound

Trips to Old Forge

Posted 04-05-2012 at 04:34 PM by ckhthankgod

Well, actually my dad and sister actually went in, while I oddly decided to stay in the van. What sense did that make? An hour and half trip and nothing to show for it. Luckily, I had taken 2 more trips there afterwards.

Both were with an old girlfriend and I was able to partake in things I had never done before. During the first trip, went camping for...

Good Morning!

How is everyone this morning? I haven't heard how my sister-in-law is doing this morning. Hopefully our prayers have helped.

It's another beautiful morning here. But I'm getting worried about the lack of rain here. On my way into Longville, I pass a pond called "Football Pond" I covers both sides of the road (84). It's usually very high this
