Corkscrews, SPaM and Camping

Apparently, I need a vacation from my vacation.  I arrived home from my six day camping trip late this afternoon, and couldn’t remember how to properly log on to WordPress.  After I figured it out, I realized a glass of wine would have helped, so off to the kitchen and I couldn’t find the corkscrew. After standing there for several minutes, looking in the drawer where it should have been, cursing my decision not to buy wine in a screw top bottle, and wondering why anyone would want to steal my cheap corkscrew, I saw the corkscrew right in the spot where it should have been. Yes, I really needed that glass of wine and possibly food.

So with wine in hand, or in a glass in my hand, I started sifting through my inbox. And then I saw it – an email from Facebook informing me that one of the people I had been camping with wants me to be her Facebook friend. Since I now have the perfect (for me) number of faux Facebook friends (100 for those of you that missed my post), I need to jettison one in order to accept another one. This really isn’t that big of a deal since I’m not a big Facebook fan and have no qualms about ending a faux friendship.

I don’t know why Kim wants me as her FBF (Facebook friend) since I explained to her that I am quite possibly the worst FBF ever. I don’t post status updates or photos and rarely log on, so I won’t have a clue as to what is going on in her life unless we chat in person.  But she does, and who am I do deny someone the experience of having the worst FBF ever.  So in the next few days, or weeks, or whenever I get around to it, I’ll still have 100 faux Facebook friends, just not the same ones I have today, though 99 of them will be the same.

In other news, I had the good fortune of being featured in a fellow blogger’s blog today. H.E. Ellis interviewed me for her SPaM (Shameless Promotion Monday) post. Please check it out and read some of her other posts. She is a wonderful writer and has the book to prove it.

The camping trip was fabulous. We had great weather, good food, almost enough wine, though when the wine ran out, we still had tequila. We hiked, biked and kayaked and even rode Segways – off road, no less.  Here are a couple of views from our campsite on Little Talbot Island.

And just one more photo of the beach on Little Talbot Island………..

  1. Welcome back, and now I want to go camping.
    Well no, but I’d like to be somewhere with leaves on the trees and a generous portion of warm…

    And great SPaM interview!

  2. Wow, these photos made me wish I had gone on your trip too! We’ve been talking about how we need to camp more this year, but we need to find a place in our town that rents equipment. We’re not far from the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. From what I drove through to get to Alabama, they looked gorgeous! What food do you like to take camping?

    • We stick to easy in the food department – things we can cook on the grill – burgers and brats. We also made chili and sloppy joe’s in advance, froze it in plastic bags, then dumped it in a pot and heated it over an open fire. And of course, s’mores!

  3. Tequila is my alcohol of choice so I think it would have been a grand camping trip.
    So now you’re famous. Can I get your autograph?..maybe I’ll send ya a FBF request!
