Punderson, although it has a very poorly designed Campground, is a winter wonderland.  It has ample snow and things to do in the snow.  It's the only or at least the only close-to-Cleveland electrical-available winter camp. It is about an hour east of North Olmsted, Ohio.

Many aborted trips later, Grace and I finally get out!  It's spring break of my second semester in law school and time for a well-deserved respite.  Respiting is what I'm doing.  Playing with a new cell phone, walking, playing on the computer.  I'm doing everything but what I should be doing.  I should be studying.

The park has but one other camper.  All the 50 amp sites were bagged as being occupied.  I un-bagged one.  So far I've not been kicked off the site.  Many others have the paper occupied signs.  The bags seem a remnant of the recent paving they've done to the park roads.

I'm using a spare computer.  My normal machine is sick and in the hospital under warranty.  It is getting a new motherboard, video board, keyboard, and some other boards.  I suspect the screen will be the only thing left..  I finally got my new cell phone working with this replacement computer and headed out around 6 p.m.

Mary is with Megan downtown at the potato-picker parade.  Don't see no Bohemians behaving so badly!  Don't see no Hungarians marching about all drunked up!

Gracie was so very happy to see Mom. Fritz, and RTR.  The picture on the left is before our walk.  The picture on the right is after.  Wimps!  Here I sit!

We did have a nice walk.  We went to Dutch Family and had a huge dinner.  Now we need to walk again.  HEY!  Get up!


March 19

I sure am glad the new cell phone worked!  I received a 2 a.m. call about a signal being stuck.  I was able to kick it and got it operating without having to drive back into town.

Up and out with a nice walk.  I took Fritz around the lower loops and took the two little ones the rest of the way.  It's been cold but sunny.  Mom got up and we did the whole walk again.  We have three TIRED dogs.  I'm pretty tired, too.
