Steve, we will return to Seattle area after the GC. It's still WAY too hot to head south. I usually leave around mid October when the rains return and mosey slowly towards Yuma. I want to get my trip over the border out of the way before the holiday spirit sets in.

You should consider more time in Twin Falls! It's my midway stop to stock up and rest up. They have all my favorite stores and everyone is super friendly -- like Texas friendly. I noticed a place that sounds interesting South on US 93. It's an RV park at a hot springs.

I also highly recommend Lewiston. There are these 2 old coots who like to hang out at her Dad's place. Her Dad is a delightfully young man about 93 who tells real groaner type jokes. The kids aren't bad to hang out with either.

If you are heading to Idanha from Idaho and have time take the scenic route -- US Highway 26. It was a beautiful drive and there is a lot to do along the way considering it's rural America. The John Day Fossil Beds National Monument visitor center is top notch. And in John Day is museum that is dedicated to the Chinese emigrants during the 1800s. Driving west you can see the remnants of a wagon road I'm sure they built along the hills on the south side of the highway.

Ok, I could prattle on, but I won't.

Granite Lake is on the confluence of the Snake & Clearwater River. Not to be confused with a lake. It is nice. Also look at Hell's Canyon resort close by. We spent 7 weeks there when Dale was retiring. There is also Hell's Canyon state park on the Idaho side.

I happen to know those 2 old coots. Lol. Wait. You wouldn't be talking about me?

BTW, I ripped out the side seems of a pair of pants to make some bell bottoms today. They already feel real comfortable.

'Mornin, y'all! So I'm on first? Again? What's this world coming to!

Blackberry Winter ... when there's a cold spell while the blackberries are blooming. As in now.

I'd forgotten about it, even though it's an annual occurrence here in IL. (Duh!) Forgot, that is, until the 3rd evening I built a fire in the fireplace to avoid turning the furnace back on.

Last night I toasted marshmallows & made S'mores. What better way to celebrate the harvest of that old oak my GGPs planted? This is some serious firewood, preseasoned even!

A toast to the GGPs! And cheers to Muteys everywhere!

So Sue, you are the 4th generation to live in that house. Very cool! That doesn't happen much anymore in this transient society. So when was your house built? I suspect parts of it are younger than others.

My DD's house was built in the 1930s. It appears to be a summer cottage on Lake Washington for a well-to-do family. There's still parts of the servant call system in the basement. The house doesn't appear to be added on to, but the property has been subdivided into 6 parcels. The original driveway is now a "private street" and the small house just up the hill was once the gardener's cottage.

Morning......

Getting ready to hit the big box store, looking for a replacement faucet for the tub / shower.

Too wet to paint dad's house, darn.

Interesting history to winkle out, isn't it? (Winkle being the small edible snail that takes a bit of work to remove from its shell, in case you don't know the expression.) Houses & gardens really do talk if you're patient enough to listen & look.

Actually, I got it wrong, Barb ... I'm the 5th generation, and yes, parts of the house are younger, including what Martin & I added almost 20 years ago. The original farmhouse was built in 1860, & the first Raymond, Nathaniel, bought it 4 yrs later. Most of the the timber was cut on the farm & is bigger than modern lumber -- 3x10" for example. Floor joists were 3x12". The hired hand's house is down the hill apiece, but I think that was built in the next generation, after son Isaac went into banking.

The older the house, the more stories it has to tell, right? Family stories add to what you can read in the walls, so it becomes more fascinating as you go. We even have ghost stories here.

I'd better write a book! Otherwise, when I go, the stories go too. (Only child of an only child, you know?)

Coffee's finished, so "On with the motley!" Duty calls.

Cheers!

Speaking of ancestral jewels, I have the exact axe that Washington cut the cheery tree down with. Still in remarkable shape. My great grandpa replaced the handle on it twice and grandpa replaced the head.

I have to say... this has bern such a pleasant read this morning. You mutants are a special group. Talked to MzCrude this morning. That's always special. Seems we will just miss her at MMDC West when we pass through. That's not special, except in the way that bless your heart is a sincere compliment special...

I think I need to get a dart board. I could put the state map on it and then just throw the dart. Oh the humanity.

You should replace the head, and not on the ax!

Marty... Ranger Steve, Djinn, and Abbie came by today for a visit. Abbie is a he (as in Hoffman) and at 6 months his in training is paying off. Still a lot of pup in that big boy. His feet are huge.

The high priced local mobile wash is coming on Friday. The reports are good but it's Dallas prices in Az. Probably cause it's so close to Sedona. Speaking of which, if you turn right out of the Fairgrounds, you're headed for Jerome and Cottonwood. Some Mutants last year, at Mel and Kate's retirement and going full time GC at Deadhorse, made the Cottonwood to Jerome trek.
We may make the trip tomorrow.

Other than that, were just living small in PV. Waiting for the docs to say see ya in 5 or 6 months. Of course I'm scratching my head on where to hang out in Idaho until moving into Oregon. I've about concluded that PNW will be next year or thereafter. Think I'll let the other eclipse goers have the rest of Oregon this time.

Hey Barb... what month do you plan to head south. Any target dates for departure. Just thinking several of us will be making our way back to Az after the Great Mooning. And it crossed my mind - ^^ - Ed and Jackie haven't had a Retirement/ Going full-time GC yet.

The ramblings of mutant... ponders upon ponders... where to go. What to do.

Btw the fur face pics were taken the other day.
Yup! That's Blue DJinn all right... would know his face anywhere! he had quite the scare as a pup with nasty disease of pups... had the whole Border Collie Boards posting get wells, hang in there's etc. Ranger took them up to the vet's office and they taped them to his crate... sort of a Border Collie person form of Oommss. D'Ranger Steve loves that dog too much...and I'll worry about him when DJinn leaves this plane of existence. Watched his training through the BC boards.
