My gosh, how time flies! Well so you probably have figured out that our vacation week at Decorah is long over. The rest of our week there was uneventful until Friday morning. It rained at night and one morning until about noon. We never did go back out on the river because it had gone up with the rain and was moving pretty fast. Pretty unsafe then. We made it to the Whippy Dip a few more times and we went to their famous pizza place for supper on Friday night. It was great when Milan got his phone call from the Colonel on that Friday morning. I have never heard his phone ring so much as I did that day when word had spread through the Patrol.

So we have gone to an auction in the last few weeks and acquired things for an apartment and have boughten more furniture from friends who are remodeling. He is pretty well set now. Saturday we went to Manchester and he now has a place to live in a month or so. The tenants will not be leaving their before Aug. 20. So he will be commuting or staying in a hotel. The apartment is a two bedroom and we couldn't have asked for it to work out any better regarding rent etc. Milan starts his new job tomorrow and he is very anxious to do so in a lot of ways! Thanks to all of you for the well wishes. He will do a great job.

The fourth of July we just hung out at home as it had rained most of the day anyway. I guess we did to see The Hangover in the afternoon. You definitely need to be in the right frame of mind to see this movie. Jason said he really liked it which I am sure he did. But that movie also has Jason's humor. We did go to Grand Mound that evening for the fireworks. They put on such a show. It was a fun time.

Otherwise not much else is happening. This weekend we will be going to Cedar Falls to the George Wyth State Park with Milan's brother and another couple. They have bike trails that you can get onto right at the campground and so I hope we will be riding or bikes a lot. It should be fun. Ashley will be departing on Friday also to go out to visit Julie and Jason for the weekend.

I will try to do better posting. But for now I hope everyone is well and enjoying our wonderful summer.
