Rachael came up a week ago, Sunday. Being Rachael, of course she couldn't help herself but had to bring a bunch of gifts along. The oranges above are just a few she brought from her friend Claudette's garden together with a large bag of lemons. The flowers are from Rachael. She also brought some snack food, magazines, and her hair cutting scissors. But first we went to town to have brunch, I suggested Kelcy's Diner, and old fashioned country diner with excellent food.
After brunch, we are full and happy.
Here I am, outside the diner.
It was a cold, dark, day. This is the railroad depot, rebuilt after a fire destroyed the old one in 2008.
The building to the right houses a German bakery with the most delicious eclairs, I've ever had.
Driving through canyon wilderness to the
Mountain Spirit Center. The Peace Bell structure was just as beautiful in the dark canyon, where clouds hung low on the mountain, as in the sunshine of our previous visits.
Neither of us was dressed for the cold and windy weather. It seemed just as cold inside, but we sat for a while anyway.
Then we hurried back to the car and home where Rachael cut my hair.
Then Rachael visited with the dogs. Soldier, who loves all
women is head over tail in love with Rachael. See how he smiles?
Then Rachael had to go back to Burbank to one of the many jobs that keeps her going between her animal education programs. A short visit, but so nice, particularly since it was short and the drive is long. Thank you, Rachael, for everything.
