 We started the month off with two weeks at Sea Pines outside of Avalon, NJ.
 My sister came and spent a few days with us. The weather was very warm and the water was great. We spent almost everyday at Wildwood Crest beach.
My son Bob brought his girlfriend down to Wildwood for her birthday in this Mercedes. This is her dream car, so he was able to borrow one from a friend. I think we look pretty good in it!
 For Bob's 35th birthday I gave him a tandem jump at Skydive Collegeville. The jump was scheduled for 11 o'clock on September 21. We were there in plenty of time, he checked in  and then we watched several people jump. When he finally asked when his turn was going to be they told him they had already called his name but none of us heard it. They had him get ready and he would be next.

 He was trained on how to position  his body during the jump.
 This was the plane they went up in.
 Notice how cloudy it has gotten. So the plane was grounded, the wind was too strong for jumping. Bob had to reschedule to October 6th at 9 o'clock.
 This is what the sky looked liked at 9 o'clock  on October 6.
 We waited three hours for it to clear. Bob sitting in his new (to him) 2012 Camry. since it didn't seem likely that he would be able to jump today we aborted the whole thing. I am disappointed for him, since I jumped several years ago and know what a rush it is.   I hope he can do it sometime in his life.
 Friday nights we have spent watching Hempfield football games, especially # 56, Brady Mathias.
 We have been golfing at least once a week at Evergreen Golf course. One Saturday we went out with Larry's son Brian and our grandson Chase. We played all 18 holes (usually we only walk 9).  Chase was getting better with each hole, it was his first time out.
 Brian was trying out his different clubs and shots. He is a pretty good golfer and was giving Chase a lot of pointers.

 One of the reasons my blog has been quiet for a few weeks is that Larry got a new computer and many of our WIFI minutes were used getting it up and running.
 The air chambers in our Sleep Number bed kept losing air each night so finally we called and had new ones sent. It took a little work to put them in the bed, but it sure is an improvement (Godiva supervised the whole thing)
 We broke down and got a Vitamix. I'm slowly learning all it can do. We started the Digest Diet and it has a lot of healthy shakes. I've made natural peanut butter and chopped a lot of vegetables. I'm sure I'll be using it a lot.
