CHRIS and his family had the opportunity to visit friends somewhere in the vicinity of Santa Rosa, CA last weekend. The location was off the beaten path and involved getting there on a dirt road.
Here are a few photos from the trip we took. All of their power is solar and their water comes from a spring. Owen had a fun time even though he started out wearing an eye patch. He had bumped his eye with a coat hanger while getting clothes ready for the trip. He kept rubbing it so we got an eye patch which really helped. From their front porch you can see a nearby Buddhist monastery on a mountain ridge.
Owen took the last picture of Larry.
Can you imagine living in such surroundings? I'm not very much of an outdoors person, but I'm a good appreciator.
The pictures convey a lovely weekend. Meanwhile, here at home, I'm trying to concentrate on my newly framed poster, keeping calm and carrying on. The telephoned report from the doctor who did yesterday's biopsy did not impart information I wanted to hear, but here's one way of looking at it; Mr. Bob and I have one more thing in common. I'll see a surgeon next Monday at which point I'll have some decisions to make.
