  1. Good Morning!!!! COFFEE!!!~D Friday!!! We’re heading on out this morning. It’s about a 5-6 hour drive home. Depending on traffic. I am hoping we can go home via South Lake Tahoe. I’ve never been that way before, but there’s a fire in that general vicinity, so I’m not sure what we will do.
  2. Rewards are chocolate, Susan.I think we’ve been over this before.
  3. We didn’t do Eagle Falls. We did the Five Lakes Hike out of Alpine Meadows ski resort , a five mile round trip hike. It was pretty steep going up, but the lakes were gorgeous. I am beat. let me know when you plan your trip and I’ll give you advice. Lake Tahoe is lovely, Yosemite is butt. Well, Yosemite is beautiful, but make sure you come in not a drought year or the falls will be all dried up. And there’s just so many people. The last time I was there I said I would never go there again because there are so many tourists.
  4. Good Morning!!! COFFEE~D Friday Eve!!! We’re going hiking today to Eagle Falls. We did that last year. It’s a nice hike, somewhat strenuous if you are not in great shape. Wonderful views of Lake Tahoe as we walk, though. Last night we watched a cute movie. “Eddie the Eagle” based (quite loosely I understand) on Eddie Edwards, the ski jumper from Great Britain who participated in the Calgary Olympics. It was sweet and humorous. Had one inappropriate part that we skipped through. Sorry about the wildfire smoke, Susan. We got some doozies out here.
  5. Yes, I always imagine poor George Donner with his injured foot unable to go on and his devoted wife, Tamsen, staying with him, even though she knew she was going to die. It is such a tragic story and really, the tragedy could have been avoided.
  6. Went rafting. Got caught on a rock in the rapids. The girls thought we were going to die. But we didn’t per regulations. Now, off to Donner Lake. I hate that place. I think it’s haunted.but, I will bring my book and read and the kids will play in the lake.
  7. Hope the surgery goes well, Toto. Any chance that you may get second sleep?
  8. I vaguely remember that episode. 😂 No, we didn’t get thrown in jail, but we did visit a museum that was very interesting and advertised itself as being “of great interest to adults and children.” It also bragged about being mentioned in Sunset Magazine as some super great museum and a “must see”. Upon closer look, the mention was all the way back in 1958. Although that is still pretty impressive.
  9. Good Morning!! COFFEE!!~D is brewing!! Humph Day!!! Going River Rafting today down the Truckee River. Not white water by any stretch of the imagination. This stretch of the Truckee is mild and glassy and quite slow. Should be a lot of fun.
  10. We went to Virginia City today. Old silver mining town. It was good. Interesting. Don’t need to go back.
  11. Good Morning!!! COFFEE!!!~D is brewing!! Everyone is moving slow this morning. Stayed up kind of late last night playing a cut throat game of Bingo and getting down to Taylor Swift. We’re party animals, I know. Virginia City today, and the kids also want to play in the lake a little bit, too.
  12. We got here. And had really good pizza. Drove through a brush fire in Sacramento and almost got peed on by a cow on Interstate 80 (got stuck next to a cattle truck in traffic and the cow peed out the side. DS rolled his window up really fast). I have no idea what we are going to do tomorrow. Possibly go to Virginia City on the Nevada side. It’s an old silver mining town.
  13. Good Morning!! COFFEE!!!~D Monday!!! Leaving for Lake Tahoe today. We’ll leave later this morning since we can’t check in to the cabin until 4:00 and it takes about 6 hours to get up there. I still need to pack. Lots to do. Lots to do. I have never had a desire to read “Lonesome Dove.” But, I’ll be taking a Grisham novel with me, and I am looking forward to starting “Liturgy of the Ordinary” by Tish Harrison Warren. My heavy reading as of late has been “Wilmington’s Lie: The Murderous Coup of 1898 and the Rise of White Supremacy”. by David Zucchino. This book has been shockingly eye opening. As a native Californian, I have had no experience with the racial problems that have so divided our country. My State’s history has been shaped by the Native Americans, Mexicans, and the Gold Rush. Sure, there’s been plenty of ugliness, but we do not share the same history with the East and/or the South.
  14. It took a while for my wasp bite to go down when I got stung. It was swollen and feverish for a while.
  15. Good Morning!!! COFFEE!!~D Sunday!! Church!!⛪️⛪️ It’s supposed to heat up again this week, but it’s only in the 80’s at Lake Tahoe. Yay!!
  16. I survived the AFSA!! The entire store is out of bags. I’m lucky I bring my own.
  17. We are staying in the same place. Very excited. I will post pictures when we get back.
  18. We got a Ring security system which works pretty well. I know what you mean about driving. People in my area regularly run stop signs, as in blow right through 4 way stops, and basically drive like idiots. What has helped me a lot, especially mentally, is that I just expect people to disobey the rules of the road. Everyone. Every time I approach an intersection, I don’t expect people to stop. And I drive like that. Extremely defensively.
  19. Good Morning!!! COFFEE!!~D Saturday!! Lots to do to get ready for our Lake Tahoe trip. So, my dad has been on a decline that started on about mid-May and it’s been picking up steam. He’s been home with my mom (who is in good health, but she is 82) and now it looks like he’s going to need to go to skilled nursing. She’s going to try to move him once we get back from our trip. We’ll only be gone a week, but I’m getting worried, a bit.
  20. I need to read. I’m watching Hallmark movies.
