Howling At The Moon

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Last night we did something a little different from our “normal” routine.  Every month, on the full moon, there’s a concert in the desert just 3 or 4 miles from us. Howling at the Moon. People start showing up with canopies, chairs, tables, BBQ grills, food, and of course, their favorite beverages. The bands show […]

Yuma Territorial Prison

Tags: , ,

We decided to play tourist and to make a visit to the Yuma Territorial Prison.  The name given the prison by prisoners was, “The Hell Hole”.  Each cell was 9 x 12 with 2 3-tier bunks in each cell.  Imagine 6 dirty, sweaty men, men who don’t like anyone, stuffed into a 9 x 12 […]

Quilts

Tags: , , , ,

A friend, Anne Martin, is an avid quilter.  And she is a perfectionist. Wherever two pieces of materials come together, the points meet exactly, the mitred corners are perfect.  In the Northwest she has won multiple awards and prizes for her work. Yesterday Anne took 34 of her 47 (that she hasn’t given away) quilts […]

One year ago today, February 1, 2016, we left a nice life along the banks of the Feather River.  We were surrounded by people we love (with a little turnover to keep life interesting) and who love us.  It was comfortable. One year ago today we finished loading the trailer and the truck, […]

An Angel

Tags: , , , , ,

It was about 1985 when I first met her. She was the wife of someone I worked with and I met her when invited to their home. Over the years she became part of my family, and I hers.  I loved her like the sister I never had.  She was the sweetest, kindest, most accepting […]

Bryce

Tags: , , ,

I woke this morning having worked myself into a froth during the night. It actually took a few nights of not very good, or long, sleep before I reached a froth. But, the result was the same.  I woke up bawling my eyes out, telling Bryce how much I love him, telling him good-bye, and […]

Restart

Tags: ,

I’ve been thinking that I need to restart blogging our trips. It’s funny how that sometimes several things come together to make something happen.  Last night I was texting with a friend about the flooding in Northern California, about a friend’s return from vacation and how she was looking forward to hearing about it, and […]
