Happy Easter ! . . .

    Happy Easter!


I was sleeping so good this morning I didn’t get up until about 10:30 and made coffee while Jan heated up muffins.

I worked on web stuff for a while and then went out and mounted a new rack on the side of my electrical bay to hang my dogbone power adapters so they don’t just have to lay on the bottom of the bay.

About 1 pm our son Chris called to say Hi and see how things were going.

I was also trying to help Nick with a clogged black tank valve, but after flushing and refilling it a few times, he finally got it to dump.

Certainly glad I didn’t have to lend a hand.

About 1:30 I made a run to Home Depot for some 4-40 screws and then on to Wal-Mart for cake flour, strawberries, and whipped cream.

She wanted to bake her world-famous pound cake for dessert tonight after Terry’s fantastic Mexican feast. So after a short nap, we headed next door about 5:45 for dinner with Nick and Terry.

And boy, was it good. Shredded Beef Tacos with homemade pico de gallo, chicken enchiladas, and of course, refried beans.

Terry's Mexican

Muy delicioso!

After that great dinner, we sat around for a while trying to make room for pound cake with strawberries and whipped cream, and trying to nail down our plans for the next few weeks.

We know we’re leaving here on the 27th, and heading over to Williams, AZ to take the Grand Canyon Railway day-long trip to the southern rim of the Canyon. While we’re there we also want to check out Bearizona, a drive-thru wildlife park in the area.

After that the plans start to get kind of hazy. We’re trying to get tickets to The Talk day-time talk show. If so, we’ll probably try to stay at the Soledad Canyon Thousand Trails near Acton, and then head up to Park of the Sierras Escapees park in Coarsegold, CA near Yosemite where we stayed last year.

If our tickets don’t come thru, we’ll probably head straight up to Coarsegold. But who knows?

It could all change tomorrow.

After all, that’s part of the fun, isn’t it.

    You might want to check the snow conditions in the mountains. The roads through there were pretty messy a couple of weeks ago.

  4. From what we hear it should be fine going up to the Yosemite area.

    After that we’ll wait and see.

    Thanks for reading the blog.


  5. 4-40 screws are #4 screws. Pretty small actually.

    Terry would probably cook every night if we let her, but she deserves a break too.
