At Forest Retreat RV Park, New Caney, Texas...
For reasons unknown to those of us using this platform to host our blog, Blogger has decided to discontinue at the end of this month (today, I guess) the feature where you can submit your email address and the program will automatically inform you when something has been posted; this, of course, is not very helpful but, apparently, they don't care.
It is painful for me to imagine that you might miss one of my riveting commentaries because of this travesty on Blogger's part, so if you will send me your email address, I'll add it to a notification list that I already have. I promise--cross my heart--that I will never share your information with anyone else. Simply email me at mikemills159(at)pm.me with your email address and I will include it on the list. This system is Proton, a highly encrypted email service based in Switzerland, so no one can see what you write but me. While I may be a hack at writing these posts, the email system is supposed to be invulnerable to hackers. What is not quite clear is why someone would want to do that, anyway.
I was hoping not to switch to a new blog host, because I like Blogger and--probably more important--I'm familiar with it. This is important to lazy retired people (sorry for the redundancy). I also want it to be around when my millionth pageview is posted, (even though it really has already has reached that point, as this blog was begun in 2005--five years before Blogger began counting pageviews). It would just be nice to see the number show up there on the counter.
Let's see...I seem to have forgotten lately to include some favorite photos of our travels, so let me do that right now. I always liked this log in the Petrified Forest. Although it has every detail of the wooden log it once was, it is indeed now a log of solid rock. Amazing.
I had calls today from two of our RVer friends whom we've met on our travels (thank you, Denny and Richard). They don't know each other, but they and their wives are just a few of the many wonderful people we count as our valued friends. And to think, we wouldn't have met, had it not been for our common interest in RVing; what a loss to us that would have been!
