|The useless phone. It has a great camera but I can't get the pictures off it! HELP!|

Kenny, Tony and Levi were coming out on Sunday 4 days later and offered to help move the bunk bed. Each day I messed around but water kept coming out from under stuff. It was smelling very sour by Saturday and I began to think we would need to tear up the rug and subfloor and start over. It wouldn't be that bad, I would get a new wood laminate floor that would be easy to install and easy to keep up too. We got the bed taken down, I got my laundry done (another frustrating story) but still we needed to move washer and dryer. Oh well, Erin and Brent would be here on Tuesday to help! Still pretty sour smelling but parts of the floor were getting drier as I shifted to using the Bissell but still not very good.
|Bunk bed is gone and we can finally get that floor dry!|
|Erin tried her hand at "Bisselling"|
|She was much better at directing the clean up!|
|So was I !|
|Looking and smelling good!|
|The room seems so much bigger after we got the furniture back in place minus the bunk bed! I need to move the mattresses on the floor under the window in the big room in here! Sorry, Paul.|
By Saturday I was ready to go over and check out the fishing. I headed out for our little bridge over the rushing creek and here is what I found!
|A project for later in summer. At least we have plenty of logs to support it!|
Everything wasn't a disaster. We got the hot tub set up and filled without incident although the rusty water (Brent described as hot tubbing in warm tea) did not clear up until after they left, but it is crystal clear now!
|I LOVE hot tubbing even in summer up here!|
|Some of my colleagues at West Wendover High School in the first few years of the school's existence. Maybe around 1998. We sure had some interesting experiences--didn't we, ladies? But where are Patty Ekland and Heidi?|
|Up at the head gate. It needs opening!|
|Trying to decide how we are going to pry that old thing up.|
Erin and Brent even hiked all the way up to Aqua Fria in the snow on June 5!
|Aqua Fria, buried in snow the first week of June.|
|Proof that they made it all the way up there!|
I got a new puzzle going, made some bread and baked brownies and peanut butter cookies!
|A very rare picture of all three Corkle boys together!|
|Look at the snow on the mountain! Rare to have that much in early June.|
soak in the hot tub while reading my Kindle, hike up to the thinking rock,
|I'm not sure why we love the Thinking Rock but it seems we all do!|
|Brothers and cousin plus Brent all together in one place!|
