A Busy June and The 4th of July!

It was a full, jam packed, and loaded June.  Many birthdays were celebrated, there were visits from dear friends as well as family members.  We had a most delightful visit when our oldest grandson brought his special girl for us to meet!  We felt honored and privileged!

There were wild fires in Oakhurst and Mariposa to worry about, all while it is "snowing" at our house, as Garbo is "blowing" her coat.
We went to the Hollister Air Show!  A Father's Day event. That was a lot of fun!

The US Supreme Court decided to change the law of that land, allowing people to marry whom they love.  About time if you ask me.  Bringing the USA more in step with western Europe.  An exciting milestone in the history of my adopted country.

We giggled about the fact that the best part of the Air Show were the Motorcycle Stunt Riders!

The race for the White House is on in full swing even though voting will not take place until the fall of 2016.  It is gong to be both crazy and tiresome by that time.  Hoping we all survive it.

The Hollister Motorcycle Freedom Rally was on, as tradition demands, bringing tens of thousands of motorcycles to town!

There was a lovely dinner at our daughters house celebrating the 4th.  We were treated to Hickory Smoked Slow Roasted Tri Tip, with Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa, a Wheat Berry Cherry Salad, an array of grilled veggies from their garden, and a sinful dessert!  What could be better than that?

With the 4th of July weekend now at an end, fireworks and all, I reflect back on our life with Ralle,  Vi'Skaly's Ralph Lauren, he who hated  and feared fireworks!  How we suffered with him during these events.  Garbo on the other hand does not bat an eyelash!  She snuggled up to the open door to the back deck last night with fireworks blasting and blaring just a few blocks away... slept like the baby she is!

Garbo, or Vi'Skaly's Tropical Hurricane, will be two years old on the 7th of July!  We are so happy to have her in our life!  Happy Birthday Garbo!

Now, for something new and fun to do, we have discovered a website called: Mealsharing.com
it looks like something right up my or our alley.  Let's see what comes of that?
