Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Floatin' your boat...



We enjoyed the evening dinner cruise on the Pride of Oregon, going upriver towards Bryon, then floating back down to Oregon tonight. Supper was served dockside; filet, mixed veggies, salad, orange yeast roll, baked potato; cake for dessert. Then, folks went to the upper deck to view the waterway, and boat traffic as twin paddle wheels pushed us upstream. We saw blue heron, birdlife, people tubing, and many pontoons full of families. The river is pretty wide, and several homes, built high on the bluffs, made us a little green with envy. The sunset was so pretty reflected on the water, and we were all busy catching the moment with cameras. Nightfall, showed up campfires along the banks, and lights. We even saw some impressive fireworks. The air was balmy, and the 'quiet' on the water was very relaxing. What a cool thing to do with good friends, on a Saturday night!
