Aug 28, 2014 - Rochester, MN - Saying Goodbye to Friends

(Ron Writing) Yesterday we stayed home and did a little work around the house and visited with Tom & Sandy and Reeve & Mary. Tom and Sandy had us all over for grilled pork chops, which were delicious. It was another fun evening with our friends. Mary and Elena share a love for baking. Mary baked a LARGE batch of chocolate/chocolate cookies she shared with everyone. She gave us a big bag full that will hold us for quite awhile - well, maybe a few days considering how delicious they are! This morning the six of us all went to have breakfast...

Aug 23, 2014 - Rollingstone, MN - Visiting Friends

(Ron Writing) Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday were spent hanging out in Rochester. We just felt like we needed some time to relax, catch up on some work at home, and do a little shopping. On Friday afternoon we left Rochester and headed east a short distance to the quaint town of Rollingstone, MN. We stopped here to visit our friends, Tom and Sandy, who we met at the North Ranch campground several years ago and we’ve been seeing them there every winter since. They have both lived their entire lives in this town or a nearby farm and they...
