ROSIE- PS That ex-lax story was funny to read, but I'll bet not so funny to live! You were absolutely right to worry about dehydration in a young child- it's also dangerous for us, older citizens. I'm glad everything "worked out" (literally!)!Kids surely do keep everything lively- never a dull moment! Laurie

Without a sense of humor, you may as well keel over and die, so LAUGH!

CHERYL and ROSIE- You sound like great people. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon My Dad was a Methodist minister, so we moved a lot growing up. He also took us from Massachusetts to the Seattle World's Fair in the sixties, camping the whole way across country, with the four of us and pregnant Mom in a station wagon. Then, they changed places with a minister from England for a year and we got to see Europe. That was back when you could actually step inside the Major Oak in Sherwood Forest and go right up to Stonehenge, which are both closed off to tourists today. My folks just love traveling- they've been all over- Scotland, China (where they taught their host family the Hokey-Pokey), Scandinavian countries, etc. My husband is a stay-at-home guy, so I have to push him to go ANYWHERE, but he has provided two wonderful homes in our 33 years together and I wouldn't trade him for anybody else. He is one heck of a nice person and I feel lucky to live life with him. Anyway, WELCOME AGAIN! Love and hugs, Laurie

We were there in 1967, my daughter ws about two and my son 4 and we were staying with my step-mom's couosin's and my step-mom had some exlax on a stand in the room where she and Dad slept and guess who got into them. My son had said Linda ate all the chocolate, well, guess who got the diarhea when we were out on the road, yes, my son, and he never had an accident ever since B/4 he was a year old, he didn't like that, he said mommy ipooped my pants.. and started to cry. Needless to say I had to put a diaper on him for a while, I was scared that he was going to dehydrate, but, it turned out alright.

Salem is about a two hour drive from my house. Every couple of years I take some grandkids there and tour the sights like we are on vacation. We also go see the state capitol building. Last time we got to see our governor.

Southern Oregon has a fabulous cave system. Very worth seeing. I have also been to the Ape caves by Mt. St. Helens. I love caves. I guess I should make an effort to find some more that are close. Caving is a great way to get exercise.

I was about 9 yrs old and we went to visit my uncle in Renton, Washington. I remember we stop at some caverans that really famous, but that is about it. I have been telling people that this is the longest I have lived in any house in any one place since my birth--9 yrs!

My BIL was a civilian accountant for the base exchanges, so my nieces lived everywhere too. My oldest niece was born in Germany. They seemed to thrive on the adventures.

I have lived only in seven different houses all within 40 miles of each other. There is something nice about deep roots too. However, I do hope to get to Australia on my 60th birthday.

So when and where were you in Oregon?

Cathy,

Before I even joined the Army, I had been all over the Continental US. In fact at age 18, the only states I hadn't been in were: Montana, N. Dakota, S. Dakota, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island and maybe Idaho (can't remember for sure). My parents moved us a lot because for work and then my family is very spread out, so we used to visit people.

I have never been farther east than Kansas City, Missouri. It is rather fun traveling vicariously through SP. It is nice the two of you made a connection.

Rose,

During the two years my parents lived there, I was once there, so it wasn't just my imagination that I recognized the name of Grayling.

Cathy, no the detour isn't really causing me any problems, I live on the end of town where the const. actually just about ends, but, to go to my Church, I have to follow the detour and the thing with the const. is they are making a four lane road into two lanes and one middle turn lane. Most of the townspeople and business's do not like the idea, B/C they believe that there will be more backed up traffic during the summer tourist time. They already did the main street like that about three years ago, and nobody likes that either and I cna't say I blame them B/C it slows up traffic the coud make a reight hand turn when the light is red and it is too hard for people to back out onto the main road after they have parked. That also backs up traffic.

Cherl, if you have been to Prudenville, you have been to Grayling, Grayling is about 30miles from Prudenville and I go to Walmart there a lot and I also go to Walmart in Gaylord a lot which is about 30miles north of us. Prudenville is south of us.

Rosie,

I think I know where you are. My parents lived in Prudenville and I think I have been to Grayling.

Rosie,
Road construction can be quite frustrating. Is the detour causing you problems?

I'm in Grayling, about 90 miles north of the Mack-Bridge. And they are tearing up out I-75 business road through town and there is a detour.

Rose,

Where are you in Michigan? I was born in Ferndale and lived in Madison Heights for a couple of years.

Hi Lady Harley,
Welcome to the Methodist team. This team seems to get more active around the weekend. There is a great group of people here. Just be patient. I am on my way to dog obedience class. After that I will come back and check out your Spark Page.

My name is Cheryl and I live in O'Fallon, Missouri. I have been a Christian since I was 8 or 9 years old and have always put my Savior, Jesus, in first place, even before my husband (when I was married), my family, my job, etc. I joined the Methodist Church when I was 17 and have pretty much been Methodist, my whole life. For awhile, when I was on Active Duty, I was in the Episcopal Church.
