Above The Fruited Plain

I find it very annoying that you can grow citrus fruit thirty miles down the hill but not up here in the boonies above 2000 feet. Call it plant envy, but if there’s an upside to a warming climate, it’s my hope to someday eat homegrown bananas.

Anthony Bourdain 1956 – 2018

Tony Bourdain took us out to dinner in some very unlikely places. He made strange foods, customs and peoples more familiar to us couch potatoes. I’ll miss his sharp wit and incisive observations of life on our little planet. RIP

The Shape Of Our Water

We finally got to ride on the Yuba Bus, but instead of going to the river we ended up in Lincoln for the season opener of the Lincoln Potters baseball team at McBean Memorial Park. (I still think they should have called it Potters Field, but what do I know?) The bus is terrific, comfortable and reasonably priced. It was a beautiful night for baseball, and the Potters whupped the San Francisco Seals 6 -4. GO POTTERS!!!




The happy crew settles in for the ride to the valley.





Our Yuba Bus host, Preston.





Batter up!



The Connor Boys, Tanner and Jesse.
