McDonald’s Internet and Happy Father’s Day Calls

6/16/13 Sunday at Buchanan, MI (Bear Cave Resort-TT/Mid Atlantic)

As we were leaving for church this morning, we said our goodbyes and hugs, since they will be leaving while we’re gone. Remember how the priest gave a lovely goodby to “Lucy” last Sunday? She must have been their pianist and choir director, because this Sunday I really missed her. All the Mass parts were spoken, not sung and the songs were accompanied by a guitar. I hope they find someone soon. (You can tell my favorite part of Mass is the music).

Right after Mass, we went to McDonald’s. The library closed yesterday right when I’d gotten the blogs written up. It’s also closed Sundays and Mondays. So it seemed time to give the free WiFi at McDonald’s a try. Thank heavens there were no other computers I could see there when we arrived, because this would seem a real hot spot for hackers. Didn’t see any come while we were there either. It took asking for help at the counter for me to figure out which was their WiFi: attwifi. John checked into a nearby golf course because he plans to golf Monday. Managed to finish by 11:30, before the lunch crowd.

As we drove into our campsite, our son Joe called to wish John a Happy Father’s Day. We had a wonderful time sharing with him.

We soon discovered that it had gotten pretty warm today, so we put the air conditioners on, had lunch, then settled in for TV and books. After supper, we called Justin and had a good Father’s Day conversation. More TV for the evening. We have a lot of taped shows to catch up on.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
