Notes from the River
My new life on the river is in full swing now, and I'm beginning to feel like I’ve lived here forever, although it has only been 10 months. Spring has come and gone and summer is just arriving. The tourist season recently started and life is very busy. Working a couple of jobs and volunteering at the Humane Society, I am fostering a couple of cute kittens now thru their program.

Thanksgiving in Monte Rio … 2013
Arrived Friday at 6:00 pm, had a power outage at 6:05 pm. It took us a few minutes to realize it, because it happened just as I tried to turn the lights on, so for a moment we thought it was something to do with our switch.
