I am ever going to get back into book blogging mode. I have a huge stack right here on the couch but can’t seem to write about any of them. Ron had a doctor’s appointment this morning and afterwards Sam wanted to go back to the barbecue place in South Hill. So we did and I had the most wonderful BBQ brisket special. It was like a half pound of really good meat with baked beans and potato salad.
When we got home from that Staci called. Things have been hectic in her world. Since her last visit one of her friend’s husband died, then she got sun stroke, and then most seriously her father had a stroke. She has spent the past week arranging for him to have nurses and a home health aid and is really grateful to be over here on vacation for a week or so. (Kathi leaves for Florida on Friday for about a week, then Staci and Kathi will drive back to Boise sometime thereafter.)
Meanwhile, since Staci will be busy with Kathi tomorrow, Ron Sam and I are planning to drive up Mount Rainier and hopefully have lunch at Paradise lodge. Paradise just thie year re-opened after being closed for remodeling for several years and I am anxious to see how it came out. Whatever else, it will be real nice to get back to Rainier again.
