I would probably self-identify as a female rural West Coast (of USA) Caucasian, but that wouldn't include, as labels often don't, my journey from a small monocultural mill town to a solo sabbatical in six countries (in '91). Now I'm on to the exciting sojourn of retirement (from full-time worklife five years ago). I love travel and art and aesthetics, as well as almost all cats and dogs I've met. This blog is just for fun and experimenting with the tools. It should be amusing...

There's A Deck Under Here Somewhere....

You get the picture. And we have a small hill behind us and trees all around, which equals planting June 1st.... being near 4,000 feet, the palm trees don't sway in this part of California!


Jack and Family Wait for Spring

Mr. Jack begs your pardon for being gone from the blog so long, but it's been a hard winter! The worst storm in thirty years came after the holidays. Six days without power, and tons of trees crashing into homes, fences, yards, etc.

Jack's best sanity saver from cabin fever comes from fetching Netflix wrappers, faithfully depositing the crinkly paper at our feet almost every time. Otherwise he loves picking his way among the slowly dwindling drifts while on his blue harness. Happy almost spring from the mountains of far northern California!
