Oh my stars and stripes, Loved Ones!
I can't believe I let so much time slip by without
telling people what I think about them and how they carry on and should knock it off an start acting like Helen is the queen of the unive rse I mean, blogging.
Helen is mortified at her lack of work ethic this week, Loved Ones and should apologize, which I probably won't. Actually, I'd like to blame the heat or extenuating circumstances for my absence from the blogosphere of late ...
... so I will!
It's the American way, right?

What's important is: I'M BACK!!!
|Thank Heavens she didn't say please don't take AFFRONT! I don't think the internet is ready for full frontal Helen.|
Where did I go? My cousin Patje had a change of plans in her summer travels and I got a second chance to make my escape... er getaway... um, oh never mind however I say it, it's gonna sound like Helen was on the lam.
|It's normal to need to break away from work and family but maybe having a chopper waiting was a bit much.|
I left in such a hurry I forgot a few things - phone charger, toothpaste and laptop. The hotel could give me the toothpaste but between having to conserve phone power and no laptop I spent most of the time 'unplugged'
|I recognize the keyboard but where is the wifi button?|
The good news is I got a fresh stack of magazines so I can keep you all up to date on how to live a better life circa 1965! For some reason Cousin Patje came away from our adventure with a pressing question about tasteful ways to decorate one's yard.
Hmmm. Helen is on it! Have a happy holiday, enjoy a few snaps of our trip to gorgeous Columbus, Indiana and I'll be back to
judge advise you Friday!

|Shoulda got a better angle, but we were kind of wandering lost at this point and I don't know if we could have found our way around to this lovely piece of art - guess we will have to visit again!|
