Char and George

We spent a wonderful weekend with Char and George. They are camp workers at a park near Rapid City. They took us to the "faces" and thru the Needles Highway. We really enjoyed their company and hospitality!

I am posting Sandy's entire message below but thought I would clarify a bit. I am thinking she purchased the property at 311 Cottonwood and the property she has for sale is at 203 E Pecos. That might help anyone who could be interested. Congrats Sandy!
Barb....I'm sending this to you, hoping you will put this on your web site. I bought Jerry Walkers Trailer, And will be selling mine. Its 2 br.. 2 baths. I hope that someone who reads your blog will be interested or know someone  that wants to move  to Magnolia park. If interested they can call me at 515-822-1958 or email me at for details...... 
Thank you.

From the Hannewalds

Wanted to touch base with our Magnolia has been an eventful summer on the Betsie River. Since our daughter has not talked us into getting a computer, she is writing this for us ! I had knee replacement surgery scheduled for last week....but to make a long story short, after preop testing, a tumor was found on my bladder. On July 6 I had it removed and yesterday ( 12th ) we received the wonderful news that it was not malignant...and I will just have to be checked every few months !!! I have decided to wait on the knee...enough excitement for now. We've had a bear visit our birdfeeders lately...much to our dismay.....but since our daughter loves bears...we will name it and watch from a distance !!! Hope you are all having a great summer.

picture with letter from Judy Lowary!!

We had dinner with Bill and Dory, and this picture is worth a 1,000
words. Bill had his 2nd Chemo treatment and we thought he was good. We
enjoyed the evening with them. They play the waiting game....waiting
for doctor appointments, waiting for tests, waiting for results....and
they will wait to make the decision to come to Texas until time gets
closer. Thought you'd like to see for yourself.

Alex Update

Marie Flood sent some pictures of the aftermath of Alex. She says,"No damage in the park.  A few small limbs down and the office flooded.  Other than that just some water."

Any Bites, Bill?

From Marie Flood

Just took a spin around the park with my camera. No pictures. Only thing we see is some flooding and not much of that.  I have had a little over 5inches since last night.  No real wind damage a few small limbs but thats all. It is supposed to coming on shore right now and we are having a few showers and some breezey winds.  No heavy stuff.  Thats all for now.  Will write more if it gets worse.  Marie
