Saturday 17- did my stretches.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 62 and 93 degrees, slight breeze, humidity around 27 percent, clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 91. Calm wind becoming south between 7 and 10 mph. Sunday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 61. West southwest wind 14 to 17 mph decreasing to between 6 and 9 mph. Winds could gust as high as 25 mph.”
I was getting ready to go to the “End of Summer Bash” over at the community center when Ginger call telling me that it was her son Vincent’s birthday today and if I’d like to come on over for some cake. I told her that I could only stop by for a little bit because I was needed over at the center to help setup the barbecue. It was one of the best cakes I’ve ever had and she said she had gotten it over at Stater Bros.
I got to the center a little late and most of the setup was done. Everyone had a job to do and mine was to go around taking pictures and yapping to folks. Annelies was doing a book signing of her best seller “Kenya Cowgirl” and donating the proceeds to the community. Rob was selling the tickets for the food. Steve and Ray were hard at work doing the barbecue. Katherine was keeping tabs on the money. Marcie was selling items at the Thrift Room. And Mary Helen was just all over the place making sure that everything went off smoothly. Katherine made a whole bunch of potato salad. Mary Helen did the same with a bean salad and banana bread. Rob made some desert cookies. All this came with the meal when you bought a hot dog or hamburger and all the food was mighty good.
I met Doug and Marlene Marren who had a cabin out here since 1985. They got the cabin from their parents who bought it in the fifties. Their thirty year anniversary is next month! I never met Doug before but he knew all about me from my column in the newspaper and also reading my journal and website online; it’s nice to know that somebody reads it!
I also talked to Dan Baker a CHP officer who has recently moved into our community. His wife Tammy is starting a nail salon in their home and he was passing out her business cards. I told him I’d put a little ad on our community website for her.
It was nice to see Raphael Cervantes and his wife Maria. I haven’t seen them for a few years since they moved with their daughter to Yucca Valley so that they would have more room for their grandchildren. They still own the property up here and told me that they are considering moving back soon. That would be nice because they are mighty fine folks.
We’d all like to thank Ruth Tuttle for her generous contribution she made at the barbecue and all the other fifty some odd folks that came on over to eat and enjoy our company and our community center!
After the barbecue I promised Ginger that I lend her a 12volt battery and an inverter so she could charge it up with her generator to watch TV at night. I got it all hooked up for her but the TV was taking so much of a load that it blew the fuse on the 400Watt inverter, dang! I had another 140Watt inverter that I lent her that will at least charge her cell phones and run some lights or a laptop.
I was dog tired when I got home and watched a little baseball Angels vs. NY, but it went into extra innings and I soon tired of that too.
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
