Saturday April 18, 2020 Guerneville CA.
To be honest I’m getting sick of this lockdown stuff. I can’t go kayaking on the river because they ticket your car if you do. You can go to the city and shop but you can’t go out in the woods or the river at anywhere public which should be a lot safer than any store. But it’s what it is.
Better than a park
Fortunately for me our family property is as good or better than any park.
While taking with the hermit the other day he told me about running out of water and having to climb up a steep hill to get to his water tanks. He’s pushing 90 so doesn’t move so good anymore.
He said he grabbed his walking stick and slowly tried to climb up the steep hill to the tanks. Just below the tanks he slipped and lost his walking stick which was the only thing holding him on the hill side.
After loosing his walking stick he said he had a heck of a time getting back down without killing himself.
Repairing an old trail
Soooooooooooooooooo, I thought I better repair the old trail up to our water pipe valve system. I hopped on the quad runner and rode it up to just above our water tanks where the trail needed some work.
Armstrong Valley Farm
It was 6 when I got done. I rode on down to my brother’s garden, one of them.
Starting to ripen
Just as I was mounting my quad runner my brother drove up in his golf cart and asked what I found. I told him I found a couple strawberries but left him some. He said I shouldn’t eat his berries with a smile.
I said it’s the cost of his water. He’s fortunate and so are his customers that he waters with real spring water fresh out of the hills. We chatted for a bit then I went on home.
After all my hard work today I was thinking some pancakes would be good so I went on in and made some and they were good.
That was it for me today for another nice one.
