Dead Computer

My apologies for the lack of posts. My computer's chosen this particularly horrible time to take a break from working . . . although it did allow me this brief moment of accessibility to post this. And, as soon as this is done, it will be disconnected and unceremoniously dumped at the back door of the computer guru in town. So, hopefully a proper posting will follow in the next couple of days.

Meanwhile, HUGE things are happening up at the property - lots to tell.

Unfortunately, there is a forest fire in the county that has tripled in size over the last 24 hours (14,000 acres as of last night). Conditions are explosively dry and, yesterday, anyway, TOO windy. The whole air is full of stink and ash.

And, last but certainly not least, a belated (only 2 days) HAPPY 60TH BIRTHDAY to my most favorite California uncle! Both he and my dad have big ones this year: 60 and 65, respectively. Uncle, we are thinking of you!! xox

  1. Thank you to my favorite niece and nephew from MN. However, could you please quit showing the pictures of my older brother (by 5 years) that now looks 5 years younger than me. I guess that is something positive you can post on your blog from our family experiences: living in MN does make a lifestyle difference compared to Calif. I might be able to sell my property for way more than my brothers, but his life pics compared to mine show the difference in our lives. Guess I should have moved earlier, but I've heard it's not too late!!!

    Thanks for having such a great family to relate with!!!!!!
