Re: The Campfire

Oh I LOVE camp fires! Thx for starting this one.

Anybody here good at identifying constellations? I know just a few but would love to be able to pick out more in the twinkling black velvet above.

I'm in a "detoxing from chemo" mode so I brought freshly pressed carrot juice and "Green Smoothies" to share and a basket of fresh, crisp autumn apples and juicy tangerines to pass around . I'm from Fl: the citrus is from our tree and the apples come from my sister who lives in New England. I'm so glad that God thought up fruit. Yummers!

I also brought this cartoon to pass along to you guys to look at by firelight

Wink Re: The Campfire

Thanks for sharing the goodies Paula O. I love Florida citrus fruits. They are the best. Now that Chrisy has gotten rid of the bugs for us we can enjoy the food without interuption.
I brought a big thermos of hot water and some green tea bags to share since the weather is turning a little cooler.
Love the cartoon. Thanks.

Re: The Campfire

Hey Guys,

I'm going to temporarily close this thread. It is the one most frequently hit by spammers. Tonight must be a big night for spammers. We currently have over 130 "guests" on the forums, most of whom I suspect are spammers. I will reactivate the thread soon. Just trying some preemptive measures.
