We’ve had quite a bit of folk dropping in this past week. Thus, I just haven’t had much time to write. Toby and Barbara were here for several days over the holiday. Toby helped load rounds of pine, split and stack with neighbor Mike. These are compliments of neighbors Larry and Zet. It will be sometime this coming summer we’ll be able to burn these.

Hospice Chaplain to introduce himself and visit. He was nice to do so.
Daughter Lauren arrived shortly afterward from North San Juan, where she lives.
She designed a nice graphic depicting Patty’s second Saturn return to print on a tote bag.
Dinner consisted of a grilled Rib-eye steak with artichoke and “heart” baked potato. We then settled in to watch some TV. Lauren turned us on to a Netflix show, Black Mirror, a type of updated Twilight Zone.

We picked up neighbors Jeff and Cindi to caravan down to Al’s heartfelt memorial service in downtown Sacramento. The service included military honors. His Goldwing motorcycle was displayed during the service. We saw many old friends that we used to ride with.
We stopped at the In-N-Out Burger on the way home for a double double compliments of Jeff and Cindi, thank you.
