..Camping near Cincinatti
The weekend was EXCELLENT!
We hung out with my good friend Rod, his daughter and Derrick.
The people at our campsite were mostly noncomputer literate (except for Rod and Darrick).
It was great hearing how people in the sticks live.
I can remember a time when computers weren't so necessary to my life.
It was a long time ago.
I liked these people because, well, take Lonny for instance, he doesn't have a cell phone, a computer, an internet connection or cable TV.
Lonnie is great people, and man, can he play corn hole. I'd have to think his life is so much more simpler than ours.
Make money, pay bills, watch local TV, hang out with friends, and sometimes make love,. Thats what my life used to be about.
Now I'm all about checking my email, writing programs, downloading my transactions, and everything centers around the internet. I check it before going out to see what to wear.
Talking to these people brings back memories of a time in my life when I was a simpler person. I like both the person I was, and am. Its cool!
So, these events aren't really about the event.
Its about the whole experience. Everything we do is exciting enough to think about for many months to come.
And in my old age, if I make it, I'll look back at these times and smile a great big smile.
*** These are the good old days ***
