WORKING THROUGH THE LIST

Several phone calls made to cross items off our list, income tax papers dropped off for the accountant and medical appointments made so far.  We visited our friend Donna B this morning and she gave us a tour around the facility she and Bert recently moved to.  I had planned to visit my old friend JR who I worked with for years at the mill.  He lives in the same complex but Donna informed me he had been in the hospital for a while.  I went there later and had a good chat with him.  He will be 80 in June and is quite perturbed that he can't remember details anymore.
We had a nice supper with Bev and Kevin Sunday evening and I got to soak in the hot tub for a while and Aileen got to have a nice long bath.  We miss those things with our lifestyle for the most part.  It is one of the main draws for me to keep returning to our lot in Caliente.  We're starting to think more seriously about getting another home base, all be it more simple than the last one, where we can have a spot to hang out for an extended period and have some of the facilities.

This osprey was one of three hanging around the local wharf Sunday morning


This is taken from the wharf looking up to our motor home.  We are in the trees dead center in the photo, to the right of the dominant house.

Can you see us now?  Don't forget to click on any photo to enlarge it.

A bit of a surprise to see snow creeping down the hill this morning

It looks like Mitzy got a little warm in her bed and made an effort to crawl out but didn't quite make it.  Aileen had taken her for a long walk while I was visiting at the hospital.
