The wood shed is nearly full. Good thing the warm(ish) weather is holding as he was a little late with it this year! We have not yet had a frost but we did have a nice heavy 3 day rain to wet things down and put an end to fire season. I would be pleased [...]

I am estimating about 8 thousand feet, maybe a bit below that. Shasta looked really good, it’s been bare but for the glaciers most of the summer. but there was snow on Mt. Eddy, too, which is just a bit over 9000′. This is looking into the Alps. None on our 7200′ Billy’s Peak yet. [...]
I copied this photo from HandWoven magazine, in case anybody wants to turn me in. This lady, it says, is 84 years old. Take a look at her hands. She hasn’t let a little thing like that stop her from weaving. She makes me ashamed of griping about my hands hurting with my little bit [...]

…looking like a couple of rough and ragged tourists after a few days in the trailer! That’s Half Dome in the background. I’m holding Cori’s leash but the nice European man who took our picture didn’t get her in. We took theirs in return. There was a lot of that going on, as you might [...]
We went to the fair in Dixon, Lambtown last weekend and after that we decided to take the last opportunity this fall to see some of California. We visited Randy’s step Mom in Saucelito by the bay, then my brother in Cool, then Randy’s Uncle in Angel’s Camp and then made our way via old [...]
