Crapple

Hello everyone, it's Craig that will be writing the blog today. Usually Karin and I both put together our thoughts and then share them with you. Today, Karin is working hard on our other computer, the Crapple...er, I mean Apple.
I must say that I am a bit jealous when it comes to the Apple. Karin and I are truly in love with each other. But if Steve Jobs (co-founder and CEO of Apple) were to ever become available on the dating market, I could be in big trouble!

While Karin is in front of the Apple, pulling out her hair and swearing like a sailor, I'll bring you up-to-date on our travels.

We drove into Edenton yesterday and visited the library. Karin is an expert on genealogy and wanted to see if one branch of her family tree is possibly connected to this area of North Carolina. She won't admit to her expertise, but that's just the way that I see it. Anyway, as we pulled up the the library, the water was as smooth as glass. Edenton sits along the water of Edenton Bay, which connects the Chowan River to the Albemarle Sound. It was beautiful, but wouldn't you know it, I forgot the camera. So the next time we head there, I'll make sure and take some pictures for you.

Edenton is a beautiful little town. Revolutionary war cannons still line the waterfront. Cypress trees are seen throughout the bay. Edenton was established as the first colonial capitol of North Carolina in 1728. Many 1700 and 1800 historical homes are still standing and can be toured. By the way, the 1774 Edenton Tea Party is recognized as the first political action taken by women.

There was a major motion picture filmed here several years ago. The title of it is Dog Days of Summer, starring Will Patton. I'm not sure if it ever made it to the big screen, but it is available on DVD. My Father was an extra in the movie. You can see him several times, wandering down streets and in parks. He even makes a cameo appearance near the end of the movie, opening the door and being the first to enter a building. The movie was just ok, but if you are a Will Patton fan, Then you'll enjoy his character "Eli Cottonmouth".

By the way, Karin does some writing concerning finances, genealogy and other tidbits. If you'd like to read them, here are the links:

Whoops!!! I have to run! Karin has the window open and now she's trying to shove the Apple through it!! C'mon honey, it'll be ok.

I don't think I have to worry about Steve Jobs right now. :)

  4. Well, the Crapple survived and Karin is once again sane. If I(Craig) had my way, I'd hang the Crapple up like a pinata, lather it in catnip, and let our 2 cats have a party :)

  5. Just found your blog. I actually found this one through your other blog. Sounds like we share a few things in common. We left Golden, CO last April to begin our full-timing life. We were probably at the Denver RV show at the same time. We, too, were tired of the daily 8-5 grind. We spent our first summer workamping in Northern California and will return there again this year to help manage it. We are tentatively planning to work for Amazon in KY this winter so maybe we'll meet!
