June 24, 2009 leftArrowSmall.jpg rightArrowSmall.jpg home.gif


Today I am determined to get the web site up to date so that the next time I find wi-fi I'll be ready to upload the latest chunk. I had forgotten the time investment necessary to do this, but this is what I do. Enjoy.

Finally got to rid'in, went out thru the Lamar Valley to the North East Gate and return. Saw herds of bison, some mountain sheep (but not up close), a bear in the distance, but too shall to pic.

My neighbors Savage and Anne Frieze and their precious 10 year old daughter Sara from Washington state offered to take my prcture at the campsite. Thanks Savage, and for also extending an invitation for a place to stay after my ferry ride. Will be in touch and I'll give you a call. Very gracious of you all, Thank You.

Right now it is 5:46 and I'm almost done this for the day. 6 hours in the cafe web building and drinking coffee is about enough but this is a task that needs to be done for all of you...my faithful followers. This down time also gives me some rest in an odd sort of way.

2009_06_24/IMG_1961.JPG 10:13 PM EDT I returned from my afternoon ride. Gary and Amy Bryson, my other neighbors, invited me over for a chicken quesadilla. Any took the picture of me enjoying dinner with their friendly children, Molly and Blume. The Brysons are also going to Bryce/Zion in Utah and said they would email me info about a new restaurant there that is not-to-miss. Thanks you Gary and Amy for your gracious hospitality. Good luck in your future real estate business, trying to get people back into houses.
