Electric Sheep . . .

(We’ll see if anyone gets this one.)

Well, we did pretty much nothing today. And it was really, really nice.

It made it all the way up to 62 degrees with plenty of sun, so we had the windows and the door open all day. Really nice. And the smell of pine trees just makes it better.

We’ve gotten a few more neighbors in the last couple of days, but nobody on either side of us. Hopefully that will hold. But with the Memorial Day weekend coming up, it might be touch and go.

When Jan did her zip line ride in Las Vegas last week, we purchased a photo of her, but I forgot about posting it until now. So here it is.

They have a zip line ride here in South Lake Tahoe, but Jan says she’s checked off Zip Lining from her Bucket List, so it’s Been There, Done That now.

About 11:30 we called our son Chris to wish him a Happy Birthday. Now being 45, that makes him officially old. Of course I don’t know what that makes us.

Jan says she’s still 39, but I’m not quite sure how that works.

Brandi sent over a picture of the kitchen area of their new house with the backsplash installed.

Apparently things have really sped up on the construction front, and they may be moving in in just a couple of weeks. We know they’re really excited.

Nick called his Level II Tech Support about 5pm wanting some help with metering the output of a solar panel he was checking out. Hopefully he didn’t electrocute himself. He is playing with electricity after all.

Wednesday we plan on making a big loop around Lake Tahoe, first heading up the west side of the lake to the Donner Pass area, then over to Reno for a Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club visit. After that. we’ll probably swing down through Virginia City, before heading home.

Tomorrow’s still kind of up in the air, though. We’ll see how it goes.


Thought for the Day:

“No but I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.” – Roy Batty

  1. Don’t know if your plans include seeing the old mint, but you would love it. No samples.

  2. We plan on being in S Tahoe in a couple weeks, what is the VZW data service like?


  3. Brian,

    Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not so good.

    I’m getting 3G here at the park, but down the road I’m getting 4G on my cellphone.

    The park has free WiFi with a good strong signal but the data flow comes and goes on it just like the 3G.

    Hope this helps.

  4. Ha! “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” Never read the original novel, but I love Ridley Scott’s cut of Blade Runner, the movie very loosely based on it. As to Roy Batty’s last words and poignant death – in the end he demonstrated more humanity than the humans who created him and his friends to be used as weapons and slaves, then destroyed. Great movie. (What made you think of electric sheep?) 🙂

  5. George,

    The mint hadn’t opened for the season yet, but will this weekend.

    We’re thinking about going back on Tuesday to ride the train, which also opens this weekend.

  6. Susie,

    Because my Thought for the Day was Roy Baty’s soliloquy from the movie.

    Sometimes coming up with a good blog title is harder than writing the blog.

    And sometimes I make them a little obscure to see if anyone catches it, like my “. . . just to watch him die” one the other day.
