The new header you see above is part of the view from the new house. That’s not smoke, it’s wispy clouds. It was taken a couple days ago, but the weather and view have been pretty much like this until today, when it closed in and we got some snow showers. Yep, snow. It didn’t stick, which I’m told means it doesn’t count, but from this warm-weather-climate guy, it’s snow and it counts.
Here are a couple of pictures taken on the drive to Portland, which we did in 2.5 days, leaving Orange County at 4:15 in the afternoon, driving to Gorman, CA, next day driving to Redding, CA and the next day on into Portland. Hold your mouse pointer over the thumbnail to see it’s title, click on the image to see it large.
That’s okay, it was a nice day. Finally got the TV and stereo/sound systems operational (no Comcast email yet), and played the first music in the house, the soundtrack music from IRIS by James Horner.
The rain that turned to a light snow shower began mid-day. At 2:00 Dave (Evan) Lewis and his lovely wife Irene came by to see the house in Chaos Condition, chat and then we went out to dinner at Oswego Grill. Nice and we got back up the hill before the temps had a chance to drop and the road get slick. This is all new to me, and there’s a lot to learn. Irene is an avid gardner, as are Wife and I, so we talked about that a lot, identifying plants and discussing possible changes to make come spring. Nice.
Dave showed up with a book I’ve been wanting to get my hands on for a while, Six-Gun Doctor (Doc Dillahay) by Paul S. Powers. First Ballantine printing (1950). Wow. I’m eager to read it, and though I won’t be doing a New Arrivals post tomorrow, this serves to inform.
Hope everyone is well and content, we are. Peace.
