On Friday we again visited with my cousin Muriel. It is a treat getting to know her better. She occasionally lived about 10 miles from where I grew up. However, her father worked on military installations as an ammo inspector and was relocated every two years. They owned a house in NJ but the only times she lived there was when he was in Japan or Korea. I can remember her family living in SD, Ohio and Kentucky. And as she is 4 years older, we never really "hung" together even when she lived locally.
Muriel lives in a church campground. This is the view from her side yard.
The camp is an active children's camp during the summer but they hold other events throughout the year.

Muriel "cat sits" by feeding cats for friends when they travel. She took us with her as she fed the cats. We never saw the cats but sure did check out the house!

After our house tour and the cats were left food, we went to Muriel's church where they were having an fundraiser dinner and cake auction to benefit the youth. We had a lasagna dinner followed by the auction. Cakes went from $12.00 to $175.00. The best part was lots of people donated their "bargains" for dessert.
Over $1,900 was raised for a good cause.
Can anyone help? As my daughter Amy reminds me - there is a spot on my lens which shows up on pictures in the upper left corner. She tells me it is driving her crazy and I need to remove it. I don't know how! Leonard read the documents that came with the camera. It is a Casio Exilim. I am afraid of doing damage. Any suggestions?
