It was wonderful to be back in Santa Fe in July and to see our friends, Bob and Judy, who are gourmet cooks and former business partners at the yogurt shop, and Lorraine, our artist friend, and Patricia and Nolan. Bob and Judy, who live in a house west of town with spectacular views of the high desert and surrounding mountains, put us up in their guest bedroom for a few nights, spoiled us with fabulous meals, and together with their border collie, Lacy, hiked with us on a few of the local trails.
We followed them to a nearby sheep ranch where Bob is training Lacy to herd sheep, which is a little easier than trying to train a monkey to tap-dance
Lorraine is also a docent at the Santa Fe Opera house, a world-class outdoor opera that attracts people from all over the country for the entire season. She took us on a backstage tour of the facility to see and hear about the costume making, props department, hair and makeup, elevators, sound stage and all the rest that goes into making a professional opera.
Thank you all our Santa Fe friends for your wonderful hospitality and for a memorable stay. We love you guys.
After Santa Fe, we traveled to Southern California where we stayed in my Sister-in-Law's brother, Don's, driveway in Yorba Linda for a week while we worked on doing some repairs to my Dad's house, now a rental, in Lakewood
The RV park we are staying at here in Bridgeport is also big on the ATV scene as there are hundreds of miles of riding trails in the desert around the Ghost Town of Bodie. A week ago a California ATV club came to the campground for their annual romp. They covered almost a hundred miles of desert trails in one day and came back covered in dust and mud; just a bunch of big kids with big toys running around like dogs off the leash. Yahoo!
The owners of the Park, Alan and Veronica, are wonderful people. They found a dog cowering under their house here a few weeks ago and coaxed it out with food, took it to the vet for shots and adopted it
There once was a lady who cried,
"My dog always likes to hide!"
So she gave him a name
She could call without shame,
And now the dog's known as....."Clyde."
So there you have it, a blog with people in it, and dogs, which is after all a more worldly presentation of the world as it is. Of course there's no guarantee that the next blog will have only nature and fish in it, which is a more accurate presentation of a fishing addict's view of the world. Either way, you'll at least have an idea of where we are.
