Lake Erie

Shirley/Bob can correct me if I'm wrong. I'm pretty sure this was Lake Erie.

Thanksgiving Day

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you have enjoyed your day.

The 5K Run To Feed The Hungry was great and we finished in just over an hour. There were about 30,000 people out on a cold (for California), bright day.

David asked what I am thankful for today. First my family--all of you. My various circles of friends who help me enjoy my life. The comforts of my life, my health. The YMCA for Yoga, tai chi and pilates. The dance studios for dancing.

I could go on with this list and perhaps you are all thankful that I will end here.

Hike to Miners Falls

We hiked a one mile round trip trail into the cool autumn world of the northern mixed hardwood forest in the UP of Michigan. At the end of the trail were 77 steps leading down to the viewing platform at the falls where Miners River cascades some 60 feet over a sandstone outcrop. Note the big stick that Jerry carries. And he says he is not afraid to use it on knuckleheads and bears! Jerry hiked halfway to the falls and stood guard for us.

Unexpected Visitors at Work

The most amazing thing happened today at work.

A few days ago, they came and took our copy machine away because we are getting a new one. (Ok, that’s not the amazing part… duh.) Anyway, if a customer wants just one copy of one page, we can do it on our fax machine. So today, a lady came in wanting to copy the 1902 marriage certificate of her grandparents, Emily Larson and Eric Rhodman. As I was watching it inch its way out of the fax machine, I saw the signatures of the two people who signed as their witnesses: Mr. A.G. Anderson and Mrs. A.G. Anderson. Yes, it was clearly Grandma's and Grandpa’s. I’d recognize those signatures anywhere. What a treat to run into Grandma and Grandpa in the middle of an otherwise uneventful workday!
