Great morning with IngaLill, our cameras, and a photo-outing to The Grand Park. Click on the link for the whole story.
Spring has arrived in all her glory.
For my Bon Voyage, Petr Gandaloviè, the Czech ambassador to the US had to make some clarifications to the American Twitter-verse and wrote on the embassy’s website:
“…I am concerned to note in the social media a most unfortunate misunderstanding in this respect. The Czech Republic and Chechnya are two very different entities – the Czech Republic is a Central European country; Chechnya is a part of the Russian Federation.”
Here, let me google that for you.
My old house on Donmetz, another color and different landscaping, but still recognizable.
I was over at Louise’s because she wanted all her friends to take a souvenir before she sells her house next door and moves to an assisted living near her daughter. Then I’ll have no reason to drive down Donmetz again. Good Bye Donmetz, you look good!
Another crazy big day of EATing. Like a craaaazy woman. Celina-Food (and that says it all) for breakfast. Lunch with Ann. Dinner with Bill. All delicious.
I gave Bill my leftover kwacha to send to Mindy. That fist full of kwacha wasn’t worth twenty bucks but in Zambia you can buy some tasty treats for twenty bucks.
Here’s what we looked like when we set-up. The picnic table and fire pit were on the other side of the van.
And then, just as was predicted by the weather report but which I thought must be the computer reporting the wrong location, Gale Force Winds. Our tent was unable to protect us in the face of Gale Force Winds.
But we hung in there until morning, threw everything in the back of Lona and Hartley’s mini-van and headed out to a restaurant for a warm, clean, and wind-free breakfast.
It was nature. It was fun. It’s a story.
My ex-next-door-neighbor Louise hosted a dinner in celebration of her Eighty First birthday. That handsome pure skinned woman is Eighty One.
Louise took the opportunity of this event to tell everyone that she is going to be leaving Donmetz and moving to Palmdale, to an assisted living place and to be near her daughter. I’m happy for her because she is feeling good, looking well, and making this decision because she wants to and not because she has to. And because her daughter told her there were men there. Yay Louise!

It’s Darryl’s birthday and look what Angela and the girls made for him .. A Raisin Robot Band! I love it.
I went by in the evening to enjoy the Laker game together. The Lakers managed to hang on by their fingernails, to squeak by at the bell, to pull the iron out of the fire and win by one point. Go Lakers.
Susie and Windy and I went for a great walk in a huge park, a place in the center of our town and that none of us had ever visited. Wow!
The area is called Ernest E. Debs Regional Park. It was great! Here we are taking a break after some serious up up up. The guy was sweet and helpful and we kept running into him so here’s his picture, offering to share his peanuts.
