Oh My Goodness

Hey Guys...Was-up???


Well we are in Lotus,CA 2 miles West of Coloma, CA where Gold was discovered...Thought this would be a good place to be to find the "Pot 'O' Gold" at the End of the Rainbow...Well, I'm sure there must have been a Rainbow somewhere...but "Gold" is not what we found..."CHECK THIS OUT"!!
We went into town to use the phone...and get a couple of things from the grocery, and then we decided to stop for lunch at the Ponderosa Store for their obligatory Corned Beef Sandwich and Green Beer...
Well, there was this "FREAK Hail Storm" that came through the Foothills...As we drove home we saw the 2 inches worth of HAIL on the ground and on the cars at the local "Saloon and Dance Hall"...Never even thinking of our "TAD"...I guess the hail was too much for the 18 yr.old "Zip Dee" Awning...
Now what do we do???
So, back to town to call AON...can't get to them 'till Monday, but we did get it all rolled up and braced, with the help of a neighbor we "got'er'done"!!!

We met the nicest couple at lunch...Pauline and Jack...Great people from LaPine, Oregon...Had lots of stories of their life with the "Carter Family" of Gospel and Bluegrass types of Music...It was truly a gift..."the time" that we spent with them...Can't wait to talk/listen to them again...Pauline even Played the Auto Harp that was personally made for by one of the Carter Clan, this past Christmas...great stories...Great people...



We're doin fine...just mosein' around Northern California...waiting for Mike to get back to work...Mike has done some tree trimming at his Dad's house and we've been see'n the kidos and grand kidos as much as we can...

Been a great year so far...on the 3rd of April we will have been "Fulltimers" for 19 months and been married for 32 years on the same day......

"It's a great life if you don't weaken"!!!
