Granola and Bubbles

I was given a Vacation gift today from my buddy Liam and my buddy, his mom, Karen.

Have you ever encountered words that seem to have never been combined in the history of the English language. I do all the time. If you run Granola and Bubbles through a Google search now, it will arrive here at this post.

I also received this great card from the Ockander family today and I was able to tell the kids mom Summer to Have a great Summer, Summer. Planned it all week :-)

Earth Roamer

I pulled up behind this very cool vehicle today in the Brolums parking lot. It was gathering a lot of attention, along with me and my camera.

I’d never heard of this vehicle before, so I looked it up Here.

What Is It?

There’s an interesting type of animal living here in the valley. We first spotted one running across Stateline Rd, on the way to my sisters house last Mothers Day.

I encountered another one today where we park our buses. He scampered across the yard and crawled into a pipe (third from right, on the bottom). I zoomed in…

Update: Went back to the base after this post and there he was, posing…

Summer Notebook

Sometimes the smallest gesture can make your day. I dropped off my Tanner girl today, out in the Tetonia sticks. This was her graduation day and her last day of high school…

I’ve been transporting this young lady for about six years now and I’ve become friends with her parents. Mom gave me this great little notebook today for my trip (along with a gift certificate to Cocoa Grove). Thanks guys! Have a great summer :-)

Rileys Fire Pit

Riley and a buddy, along with his father-in-law Ray, whipped up a sweet fire pit in their backyard this weekend. Very well constructed I must say. It looks terrific!

He and Jake made one for us, in our back forty a few years back, but it’s ghetto compared to this :-) I’ll be in Kent, WA next Sunday and I’m bringing marshmallows.

Cool Places

I’ve been putting a lot of work into a program that presents lists of places, by state and category, that display on a Google map. You can load it up Here!

This is really a personal assistant to facilitate my travels this summer but if you venture out into the Western States you might find it of value.

Here’s an example of California State Parks:

Loud Snow

There was a somewhat strange occurrence on our deck yesterday. It’s not unusual to get snow this time of year, but this one was wet and noisy!
