Glad Donna is feeling better. When I lived out in "the sticks", I used to get uninvited visitors once in a while. I think most of them were looking for places to hunt and the rest were looking to see if the house was empty to burglarize. Made me fairly paranoid. Here in town, there are a lot of burglaries in this area so I try to make it look like there might be someone home even when there's not. There's almost always at least one car here, there's always a light on and the television is always on. When we went to Florida, one of Cheri's sons stayed here. I still have a hard time convincing Cheri, if there's a lock on it, lock it! John
She seems a lot better now (flu-wise) so I am assuming we are both now immune to the flu strain this season?
I never used to get flu shots, but last year and the year before I did because I did nto want to catch it and bring it on a visit to see mom.
What elese has been happening... I need to contact Buddy to send them the toys I said I would. I have been so busy here since I returned I have not had the proper time to do that yet. But I will.
I put up a bunch of signs at the start of our driveway. For over a year we have had cars and 4 wheelers come down to the house and stop and look around before leaving or getting out of the vehicles and look at the view then leave. If Donna comes to the door and they see her they always leave. Some are repeating (we have seen before) so I put up a load of large signs on sign poles and will be adding a couple cameras near the house and if I catch the same vehicle more than once on camera I'll pass the images along to the sheriff since we are well posted now.
The temps here are still bouncing around. They noted possible show again in the next couple days, but it dod not sound like a lot.
How is everything over yonder?

Very sorry to hear Donna caught your flu. And with everything she's been dealing with. Hope she gets to feeling better soon. Peggy

I am over the flu now, but Donna caught it!
From what it looks like, there've been record lows in the north and record highs in the south. A couple days ago a friend in Canada was asking, where was this global warming everybody's been promising? My first thought was, we got it. He was experiencing a blizzard and we were in the 90s.
Man, I wouldn't want you getting pneumonia just so I can gawk at Hauser Lake! Take care of yourself, Donna and the furkids, and in the meantime, I'll just keep an eye on your computer room couch. John
Would you believe this week we expect a record night low of 9f?!?!?!
Well, good news, I took down the old camera and housing, swapped the housing guts, mounted the new housing & camera today. Still feel like poop, but if I did not do it now the weather may prevent me till spring. TOok me about 2 hours of work doing it. However, I cannot simply restore the old camera settings and be done now, the firmware is different versions, SO..... I have to set the damn thing up manually. That is going to take me a bit of time since I am dealing with Donna, cats and flu, but the hard physical part is complete. The old camera seems to be running, so I may set it up in the house, upgrade the finrmware and then back it up and restore it to the new camera on the mountain. Lets hope that works.
