This Week

Brayden has been at camp since Sunday afternoon. Bright and early tomorrow morning I will be driving to get him and I can't wait! I know I should be used to him being gone since he goes to his dad's all the time but it sure is different when we can't call and talk to him. We sent him letters yesterday and then a friend that was at that same camp the week before laughed and told me that for the campers to get their mail, they have to get up in front of everyone and sing a song or tell a joke. I know he will either tell them he doesn't want it or tell his all time favorite joke.

"Have you seen the movie Constipated?" And when you say no, he will say,"It hasn't come out yet. It has a really thick plot."

I am curious to know what his response will be! I hope he has had a great time and can't wait to hear all his fun stories. I loved going to Bible camp when I was young. So many great friends and great memories!

The last few days I have been blogging, but I have started another blog in addition to this one. When I was in high school, my grandpa sat down with paper and pencil and wrote about his life starting from birth. I started typing it out YEARS ago but didn't get very far. When I divorced I didn't have a computer anymore and everything that I had spent hours typing out went with the computer. No, I had not saved it. I know, stupid. So I decided this time that I could blog it and I don't have to worry about it getting lost. Family can read it as I go instead of waiting until it is all typed out so I could print copies. It has some very interesting information in it. And it is one of those things that may only be interesting to me because it is my grandpa. But I can sit and read this and can hear his voice telling it! You all are welcome to read it, but like I said, may be boring to others. But if you like history, you may like it.

This leads me to some questions....there are things and places in my grandpa's story that I have had to google because I have no idea what he was talking about. So I thought I could link back to the articles that I find so others can understand too. But I guess since I haven't been blogging much lately, blogger has changed some things? When I highlight the word to add a link all this garbage pops up in the middle of my sentences. So I just gave up. Is this the new way of doing things? It looks like the stuff when you change the background settings and stuff. Does anyone know what I am talking about? Please help me! I would really like to go back and add this to my grandpas story. And seeing how I can't figure out how to add a link anymore, if you would like to read this other blog I guess you will have to go to my info and find it yourself. Sorry! Thanks for any help! I am going to try to add it here and see if it works:

My Grandpa's Story

It worked! I guess that is a new thing, but it sure is annoying seeing all that in the middle of the post! Why change things when they are fine the way they are! GRRRR!

You might check to make sure you're in the Compose tab instead of the Edit HTML tab.

Also, I think you can get the old editor back. Under Settings, the Basic tab, there's an option at the bottom that lets you choose to use either the updated editor or the old editor.

Thank you K.C.! It was the Compose thing. I knew you would come to the rescue!

Here is a place where you can print your blog as a book.

When you're completely finished with his stories, that might make a really neat gift.
