Skarpi, Scooby, and Jacqui get well! {{{{HUGS}}}}

I spoke too soon, earlier. On Friday, the station called. We had to drive up on to Mesa Point, which, once one leaves the highway, entails three hours of driving across an ancient lava field with nothing but rocks just as it would seem, even in the very primitive road. The contrasts of the dried grasses and shrubs along the way were beautiful, though, and I got some good pix, I think. So that took up most of the day.

Saturday we were doing pretty well, even got some housework and other stuff done. Had plans for our grandson to come over. Not so. The station called. We had to go up on Blackridge where the main transmitter is. More pix to come, though I missed the quails, they ran too fast, and the rabbits. I may have a good one of a deer. We went up at sunset and came down watching a yellow full moon hang out over the valley. We were at about 8,000 feet above sea level while the valley is about 4,500. Just beautiful. I got some interesting pix of the moon with streaking and multiple orbs as the shutter in my digital was really slow as it was getting dark.

Just as we were headed down the snaky road, the station called again. They were getting ready to put on the news and left things to the last minute. Something wasn't working right, so there we go, heading off to the station. We finally got home about 7p. Our grandson gave up on us.

We have plans for today but I am NOT speaking them until we are done...maybe they won't call today. Some four days off it's been for my Rog!:-)
