Been Away, Haven't Seen You In A While

My missus and I have been on vacation in the mountains and the internet service here is spotty at best. We've had a great time but, alas, must head back to the real world tomorrow. I haven't been keeping up with politics much. The only thing I've really heard about that's trending is the UK voting to leave the EU, David Cameron resigning, and British voters being surprised the side in favor of exiting actually won. I hope everyone has been well this week. I'll be busy catching up with everyone when I get home.

How did the new camper go? My sister-in-law and husband have just bought a new one and brought it here to practice putting it up. They don't have room to put it up at their suburban block. They just needed to get the hang of it before they actually go somewhere in it.

The new camper has done very well for us. We've taken a couple of short trips with it for practice, but this trip has been six nights with one to go and all is well so far. Knock-on-wood.

Enjoy the rest of your vacation. Most of the world will still be here when you get back.

I heard just about what you heard as well. I have not seen the news in over a month.

We did. It was a shock coming back to the heat and humidity after that cool mountain air.

@DWDavis I'll bet so. I haven't been to the mountains in so long.

@cindiowens We try to go once a year. We'd like to go in the fall but with my school schedule it is difficult to find the time.

It is hard to come back to all that "reality" isn't it?

I am back home now, but I am still in denial about getting back to work.

@DWDavis It's usually difficult to go back to work.

@Susan2015 I did manage to get a little work done, ie my daily blog posting. Some days I had to go up to the office and used their WiFi, but I got it done. I also averaged over 1,000 words a day on my new book. But now that I'm back I have to start prepping for the day job when school starts up end of August. Yes, I will be working on plans and research for that all summer.

I saw that a petition is going about for a 2nd Referendum. Is there a possibility the vote could be changed?

@DWDavis I really have no idea, I've only seen something about that on the internet. It just seems like some people are 'throwing their toys out of the pram' because thay didn't get the result they wanted.

I think you haven't missed much in American politics same old backbiting between Trump and Clinton. Glad you had a good vacation.

@DWDavis Now at least there is enough drama in England to take the spotlight off this country.

A break from the internet and the real world is essential. I hope you enjoyed your vacation.

We enjoyed it very much. So much that we are thinking about summering there when we retire.

It may take a few days before I sort through them. One of the things with digital photography is the number of photos I take compared to when I used film.

OH how lovely. I visited and stayed in the Mountains for a week when we were in NC. Beautiful scenery.

The (BRIXIT) WILL have a pounding effect on EURO. The exit has to be viewed not only from the Financial point of view but also from the International Peace Keeping activities of the British. How they view the Syrian Refugees Issue is also more important. China under xi Ping has shown its true color including Indian in Non-NPA list and making an anti-India campaign for the inclusion as a member.
