On Monday, I brought Brice up to Northern California to begin his summer internship. Jerry wasn't able to get time off from work, so I had to go by myself. I have never driven so far by myself. It was a looonnng drive. Over 400 miles. Past San Francisco.
Brice with refreshment at about the halfway point. He already looks like he's having fun, doesn't he?
I kept seeing what I thought were white butterflies fluttering across the road. Then we started passing these trucks. I ordered Brice to take a picture of one. I think it's garlic. I was seeing the white papery skins of a million heads of garlic.
Our first hotel was terrible. Terrible. I complained. I got my money back. I found a better hotel (with Jerry's help). This one is much better. I can be comfortable here for a few days. The TV even knows my name. (The TV was dead at the other hotel, just one item of a whole sad list of crappyness.)
Yesterday, I spend most of the day getting settled in the new hotel, buying some food and other essentials, and trying to familiarize myself with the neighborhood. Today, I plan to venture to a local regional park, and later to the Charles Shultz Museum and the Luther Burbank home and garden. Hopefully.

Spring is over, our trip to Death Valley has come and gone. So time to change the banner. This is something I threw together sometime last year. It will have to do for now. I have been rather unproductive in the art department lately. Personal issues have stifled my creativity and my mental energy. So I'm lucky at least I have this pre-made banner to stick up. Hopefully I will have the time and the desire to do some fun stuff this summer. And I'm going on a road trip tomorrow with Brice.
Wish me luck.
Wish me luck.
