While we are confined to quarters we are both staying busy with hobbies.  I have been planting a garden, the wife has been sewing, mostly quilts.  I bought her a quilting kit for her christmas present.  We thought it would be a nice small quilt for the camper.

In this time of maintaining a distance from others closing campsites is foolish.     About 75 years ago with Polio sweeping through the US a man named Fitszor (spelling may be wrong) gathered up a group of kids and they went camping in the Clayton GA area for 5 months to keep the kids out of the polio infested city.     Kids occasionally came and went from the group but it worked well to keep the kids isolated.     My father was one of those kids.

Even they've got kids on leashes.  Sheesh - if you can't control your kids...  Did you guys notice that the only person one arming the ladder was a woman?
