In The Jungles Of Burney
Burney Falls On Wednesday
Wednesday, I went up to Burney Falls
with my neighbor Linda. It was beautiful, and it was the last chance to
go before the the winter snow would make the road unpredictable.
You may recognize Burney Falls from the Tarzan movies. Johnny Weismueller, as Tarzan, dove off Burney Falls for one of the authentic jungle settings in the films.
The falls were
also used for a Coors beer commercial advertising Rocky Mountain fresh
spring water. Of course, the falls are in California and the Rocky
Mountains are elsewhere, but advertising doesn’t need to be truthful, it
just needs to sell beer.
Wind Turbines on Hatchet Ridge, today.
We also stopped
on Hachet Ridge and saw the wind turbines. We both took lots of video
and pictures. I’m combining them into a really fun video which will be
probably be the relatively appropriate song of the day, tomorrow, or the
next day.(Maybe next week)

The timing was perfect. It was the last day without snow on the ridge probably until April.
On the way
back, we stopped at Troxells’ Big Red Orchard in Montgomery Creek,
where my neighbor purchased some King David apples which she turned into
a delicious apple pastry.
Meanwhile, Here At The Treehouse;
we had a potluck which was also the Thanksgiving dinner. At least it is
the first Thanksgiving dinner. We will have another one on Thanksgiving
for those people that have nowhere else to go.
It was a lot of fun and a lot of food. My neighbor, Peggy Richardson and I played music for the hungry residents.

Speaking of music, there is a new album out, (or CD), by Doris Day.
She is 88, and her talent still shines brightly in her voice. I have always liked the way she tags each line with her signature vibrato.
Today’s relatively appropriate song is from her new CD, and is my favorite cut on it.
