Sound-bites Of My Life
is a favorite spot to spend some time listening, watching, taking
pictures, and sometimes playing guitar. On warm days, I like feeling the
the temperature drop as I walk down the boat ramp to the edge of the
Sacramento River. The bridge for the train is close by and I enjoy the
sound of the trains passing overhead to cross the river, too.
Looking upstream from the boat ramp.
just thinking about getting something sweet to eat, and I remembered
how good the custard tasted that Marian had made and served while I was
down in Richmond, last weekend.
of the many nice things about my trips to visit Marian, and play music
with her and Leona, is the home cooking. I enjoy the times we go to
their favorite restaurants, but when lunch includes treats like custard
and prime rib croissants, Marian’s kitchen is by far my favorite place
I will be returning to Richmond in November to play with the LMP Trio
for another Richmond Museum event. Good company, good music and good
food. How could anyone ask for more.
back in Redding, I got this picture of a daredevil high diving crow
down by the river. There was a murder of crows at the top of this tall
tree, eating something up there. Nuts, berries, bugs, or something I
couldn’t quite see, had drawn them to this particular tree top where
they were doing acrobatic maneuvers and crowing about it.
at the Treehouse, I saw that Jackie’s strawberry patch was still
producing good looking fruit. When I get close to her garden box, I can
hear the high pitched sound of the deer deterrent device. It is
activated by a motion sensor and supposedly will chase the deer away
before they ravage the garden. I guess the deer don’t know that.
of these mornings, maybe I will get up early enough to take some
pictures of the deer, and other animals that appear at first light.
Probably not tomorrow though.
I was out back, I saw that Dorothy’s Dahlias were in bloom. I took a
few pictures of them. There are several different shapes and styles of
dahlia growing out there.
I got the video of the LMP Trio uploaded today. I cut it down to one
song, instead of two, but I think it works better this way.
