I called my nephew's cell phone yesterday and he was at this fire and said he couldn't talk. He is a fire fighter who jumps into fire areas when there is no other way to get to them. A skill he learned in the army. I am always praying he stays safe. His poor wife ! She broke off their engagement when he joined the army because she could not handle the stress of him being deployed. When he got out of the army  after he recovered from injuries they got back together and got married and what does he do?  Decides to do this for a living. i think he makes her a nervous wreck. Pray for the fire fighters.


Thank goodness for people like your nephew, and all the firefighters who risk their lives for us!

I just got out of the hospital (emergency gall bladder surgery) When we got home there was ash all over our property. 

We are about fifteen or twenty miles south In Santa barbara. Watched smoke from hosp bed. Our house  is all closed up. 

They managed to save a very nice upscale yurt and cabin "campsite".

Hope the winds die down. Heat wave will be terrible.

I was thinking about you, hennypenny.  I knew you lived somewhere close to where my daughter lives.

 

Get well soon!  And I hope it won't be too hot or too windy over the weekend.

Pismo!!! How I love that town!  I wish we had bought a vacation home there in the early 90's when we were toying with the ideaa!!  We toyed around for 2 years and the homes we could afford went up 300k!!!  Now, I couldn't even guess!  When we stay there I love the Sand Castle beach side rooms!!!!

 

Have fun.  Has there been June gloom there>  We have had the June Gloom here from Santa Cruz, Capitola, etc
