Our friends, Jerre and Stella came over for some wine and cheese and delighted
us with flowers from Stella's
garden. What an awesome
couple they are and we feel
honored to be considered
their friends.

Jerre is the group leader of
the hometown Rock n'Roll band
plays harmonica for the band
on a few rock n'roll songs.

Howard you are a great harmonica player
and those Blues were really belted out
during your visit with us.. Thanks!!!
You and Marilyn are one terrific couple
and will see you both 'down the road'
sometime, somewhere....

Sure do appreciate you guys going with us to
meet up with Chuck & Gayle...
Too bad Pepper didn't like 'Spike'....WHEW! Posted by Picasa

This is Marilyn preparing us an awesome Red Snapper meal with all the trimmings.
She really is a great cook and we had a fantastic evening
with Howard and Marilyn...
After dinner Al and Howard did an incredible Blue's
performance....Those guys really know how to
Sing those Blues.....

Thanks again, Marilyn and guys are super. Posted by Picasa

We were so glad to find our old friends, Chuck & Gayle had been looking for a house-sitting
job in this area for the winter and was just like
the 'olden days' when we all saw each other again after 4 years. Our only concern was that they now have 'Spike'. They assured us that he is very well trained as the Guard-Dog training has calmed him down quite a bit. I could not imagine what it was like before that, but Gayle says that she can sleep well at night knowing that 'Spike' is near. So, they are excited to be back in the Pacific Northwest and looking forward to staying at our house.....hopefully our neighbors will feel the same! Hope Spike and Daisy the German Shephard next door get along...
Bless Chuck, Gayle and Spike! Posted by Picasa

"Over the river and through the woods".....our walk around the lake with Al's cousin, Suzie and her hubby, Wes....They are from California and on their way to a beautiful, secluded Canadian Mountain Lodge for some hiking in the Canadian Rockies...
Suzy and her whole family were a huge part of Al's childhood summer vacations every year in California. They sure laughed at some of their childhood memories and the fun they had during those school summer breaks....
