which is good. Forgot the card reader again, which is bad. Have a fantastic photo of Dusty over my PC - which is very, very good. So...so far, this week is good. :grin: (I really need to get Sweet Geek to email me that photo - Dusty is in his classic "Turn your head!" pose, with a goofy look on his face. It's silly, and it's *totally* him. I think it would make a LOVELY LJ icon. :lol:)

Am cruising along on the Never-Ending cardigan. Just finished the 3rd repeat (out of 16. :sigh:) Still, it's moving on. My sweater yarn is due to arrive Saturday...I am trying really hard to NOT focus on the new and keep plugging along on this one. Oooh, look - Koigu sock yarn! In GREENS! :lol: (It's safely stashed. I am trying to ignore it..and the CSM. For the moment. I have plenty of socks. I really do...:lol:)

Work is..work. :sigh:

I need to go to a remedial class on lighting the Coleman lantern. I tried - again - this morning. First attempt, nothing. Second attempt, flames out the top. Third attempt, I managed to get it lit....but when I turned the gas knob to "UP" (to brighten the lantern), it went out. :bangs head: Any experienced campers out there wanna help? I'm following the directions; I googled, found some tips, and am using *them*, but.....I am lantern-impaired. Is there a help-group for that?

Our propane latern was a bugger also last spring.
Something about the mantle being charred...
And make sure it isn't leaking..ours was very sensitive to the wind during lighting, But once we got it going it was easly to light after that.
What model is it?
Seriously I need to go through my emergency stuff and re-inventory.
Today. Ure being so serious is a bummer.

PS now you can visit me! I will post pictures of my socks!

Re: lantern

We have the dual fuel 2 mantle one - the one that runs about $60. *I* wanted the propane one...but Sweet Geek decided to go "green" on me. You can't recycle the propane bottles, so....:shrug:

Re: lantern

ours are propane, but everything in our house is propane. we use the 5 gallon tanks and just refill them. Not so good for going to the goat shed, but for camping it is great.
