The Weary-Worn Travelers

I Know . . . I know! Some bloggers we're starting out to be. It's been nearly 20 days since our last post. But wait . . . we really do have a valid excuse. We have been on vacation - witnessing Shane and Patty (Katrina's brother) tie the knot and soaking up the beautiful coastline of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park in Northern Michigan. Then upon our arrival back home it seemed like the karma between us and the electronic world had gone arye. First our DVD player began to malfunction right in the middle of "The Emperor's New Groove" (Katrina's favorite movie) "GASP!", then we noticing a hissing sound coming from the washing machine (we were afraid to open the door because Don had just replaced the water heater before vacation), but it held up well it was a mere pressure leak in the hot water hose behind the washing machine - a good hard wrenching took care of the problem. Finally, as we sat down to share with the world about our adventures, both the desktop and the laptop computers began repeating the horrific phrase . . . "Server Not Responding!!!!!!" We finally decided to give up for the day understanding how devastated our adoring fans would be that they have to wait yet another day to hear from us.

Now it is nearly 11 PM on the following day and we have finally got things up and running properly. So before we call it a night we just wanted to send a great big "HELLO" from your weary-worn travelers.



* Coming soon . . . . . . . the pics from Don and Katrina's Excellent Adventure. "Rock On!"

Exuses! excuses! Niko has been up for days, eagerly anticipating pics of Diva in Michigan...and all you can do is give some lame excuse about electronic malfunctions...maybe you should come over here and try to console my dog...he won't eat or sleep or chew on his bone...
I wonder how all the other "hinesherald" junkies are holding up. Did you ever think about them when you decided to fix the washer instead of posting?....

What a funny picture! Hey Don, Happy early Birthday! I didn't realize we were the same age AND the same birth date! That's pretty sweet. Hope you have a great one!

Welcome back! We've missed you guys. Our dvd player malfunctioned when we got home too, how weird is that. What we couldn't figure out is - our tv and vcr worked fine, but not the dvd player. I hear you about the electronics nonetheless!
