The pictures following this are of the wonderful folks we visited with, and of Larry’s portable campfire which did the trick! The first is a panoramic picture so click on it and it will open in a new window.

Actually he wants one green, one red and one blue……… We may even use it on our house in Amite at Christmas time.   Three of the pictures are of the green laser lights.

We’ll be leaving Diamond Campground in Woodland Park, Colorado Tuesday morning headed north.  We will probably stay at a Walmart Tuesday night and then head to  Glenrock, Wyoming Wednesday morning.

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
