This Memorial Weekend
Here I am.
Your well-dressed intrepid reporter. I observe and report. That seems
to be my purpose in this life. I certainly get a lot of satisfaction
from doing so.
Allow me to share some of the beautiful sites I observed and photographed today around Treehouse.
It is a beautiful Sunday
here in Redding on this Memorial Day weekend. I’m sure that the
campgrounds and marinas on the lakes are the busiest they’ve been all
