Could have been useful as we negotiated the price. But we did not investigate that part fully ourselves and the professional inspector we had hired, did not even think of looking at it. In California one must provide a certificate to the new buyer assuring them the septic is in great shape. Had we not purchased this house first we would have been aware.......... Que Sera ! But that is not what I wanted to talk about. Rather what nice professionals these guys were. What a machine they had to do the digging and trenching! We want one of those! After less than two days we had our new cleaning, filtering newfangled system installed and can flush, shower, wash clothes and take baths to our hearts content. Great we say. Now THAT is done.
While you guys "over there" brag about 80 degrees F and then some, you should be aware that the snow indicator poles along our road are in place and that the cars are being prepped for winter and equipped with snow tires today. Jealous? Strangely, I actually like this weather with all the dramatic changes. It is not supposed to be NICE all the time, or......?

Charlotte has a cousin Carina, who lives near Göteborg. She creates a Blog called "Infing Funderar". It is beautiful. Can be viewed in English too of course. Her pictures are so beautiful. I am hooked! You might want to look too. You will better understand why we like it here!
We also read a Blog written by Hilary's Dad, Tom Hurley called "Musings of a slowly rotting mind...". He keeps us informed about what goes on at Bailey Flats, in Oakhurst, Florence Lake, Muir Trail and about Benjamin! Among other things. Always interesting, fun, and filled with information and surprises and we constantly look for new chapters.
