Substitute for Camping

Since we decided not to go camping because of the rain and cold weather, we decided to make the weekend an enjoyable one anyway. As I am typing this, it is still raining.  The rain stopped awhile yesterday from about 1:30 pm into the evening, but started up again in the night and is continuing right now.  Helena, which is quite arid, received 1.5 inches in the last two days.  That is very nice.

Last night, we spent a cozy time in our family room watching two classic movies I picked up at Costco yesterday.  We like the oldies much more than the new ones, and if there is a remake of an old one, it is sure to be stupid, filled with bad words, have sexual references, and for some reason, they all have at least one butt joke.  Give us the classics any day.

We watched Dr. Doolittle and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.  We were all entertained and had more than our fill of TV for one night.  We snacked out, and slept in this morning.  We ate a late, huge breakfast of sausage, eggs, and hashbrowns, and will probably skip lunch.  All this, and no dirt, rain, wind, cold food, or cramped quarters in our overly small camper.  I could get used to this; but strangly enough I miss some of those things I just mentioned that cause us to get along, co-operate, and have fun.
