Richard is OUT!

Wow, I am so thankful that Rich is out of the hospital and WELL on his way to a complete physical recovery. Believe it or not, he is STILL ASLEEP this morning! We were up until around 10:25 p.m. after driving home from the hospital, but I'll bet he will be shocked when he wakes up at how late it is. Amazing how a dark room and peace and quiet allows a deep sleep. Hope everyone has a great day... oh... I was on the channel two news last night!

Richard in the hospital!

Well, well, well. For those of you who have not been able to travel to visit with Rich for a moment, here is a picture of him I took last Friday... note his hair!
Love you, little brother!
We continue to pray for you many, many, times each day!

Lazy bones!

Well, I just commented quickly on family blogs... so sorry I've been such a lazy person... if only I could blog from my Droid 2... I can do facebook but not blog! Nothing much new around here. Jeff turns 53 this Tuesday (November 9th) and I will be 53 on the 24th. It seems like a VERY odd and VERY old age for some reason... can't figure that one out. Love you all, and hope to see EVERYONE over Thanksgiving weekend some time!

Wow! MANY THANKS TO BARRY for inviting us to join him in the LUXURY suite at the Giant's Game last night. Insane to be living the high life for a moment, and a great game. We had a crazy couple of days... dinner in Sacramento with Andy and Alex (and their girlfriends); coffee with Kathy from high school; Caltrans meeting; training of drivers in Capay; and the GAME! What a great last minute surprise! Got home at about 1:00 a.m. and boy am I tired right now!

Another salad dressing recipe...

Janet's dressing sounds great, and this dressing IS great! We had it on salad all week at Lon and Lydia's house. Combine one cup honey with one cup apple cider vinegar and 6 to 8 cloves of garlic. Blend in a blender, chill, and enjoy! YUMMILICIOUS! We're home... Rich and Chris took good care of my Tahoe and we had a great dinner with them and Lon at the Acupulco restaurant in Alameda last night. Lon had never been there and liked it a lot. I'll put pictures up some time this weekend. Have a great Labor Day!

Music is so addictive!

Well, it's LATE and I'm still working (a little) at the office! Why you ask??? Well, I'm converting You Tube videos to MP3 files using a web site called dirpy.com. It came highly recommended by a guy I trust, so I tried it. FUN!!!!!! Seriously, I have at least 30 new songs to transfer to my phone (Droids come with a 16 GB memory card). So awesome! I must go home now... really tired and so glad it's Friday! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Okay, I'm a slacker, too. I actually am feeling a twinge of guilt for not blogging... but only a twinge! If only I could post pictures from my Droid Phone... then I would be happy. Life is good... we are content... and greetings to all!

Amazing Chairs!

Looking towards the back door... Our new chairs have arrived... they are not quite as "orange" as they appear in the pictures! Notice the furniture in the far corner...

Looking towards the front door... we have moved our tv onto our sewing machine table...

Does this look better than my messy desk, or what???

Another shot...

Back in Beatty

Yes, I'm back home in Beatty. Spent two nights in Las Vegas at the Stratosphere... GREAT internet rate! Death Valley had mini flooding so we had a day off... it was really relaxing to be in Las Vegas with NOT MUCH TO DO! YAY! Hello to all. I did not read blogs while in Redwood Valley... I have read them all now. Have a great week...

Flying home...

YES! I am flying home for a few days! I'll fly into Santa Rosa for four nights. I have a wedding Saturday night, church Sunday morning, Quarterly Taxes at the office, and I'll finally have my permanent tooth! Dental implants are a PAIN and take months to complete, not days. I'm excited to be catching up here in Beatty and hopefully will not get "buried" by taking off for a few days. The paving trucks are not working until Tuesday (and I'll be back Tuesday night) so I should be okay. YAY! So glad I'm not driving... and so thankful for air miles!
