Junapalooza III

Junapalooza arrived on the heels of a week-long heat wave. I was glad that the temperature for our outdoor celebration was relatively humane, though I also wore my County Fair straw hat and hid under the canopy. It was too hot to make future food on Friday, so I...

On the Shelf

‘Memba how the big, blocky refrigerator appeared in my kitchen one day, causing dismay and disarray? Well, Rob scavenged around in his magical Rob way, and found things and stuff he could make into other things and stuff to put up a new and improved shelf with its very...

We drove through Point Arena, where...
