Friday July 31, 2020 Guerneville CA.
I was off to the feed store once I got it going to get some chicken feed at the Friendly Feed Store.
I put on my mask and made quick work of that. Ha, that sounds like I robbed the place eh.
Dirt bike gift
From there I drove up to my brother Mikes place in Healdsburg. He wanted to gift me his dirt bike which is the one I’ve been riding. He bought it a couple years ago and then his health failed a bit so he can’t ride it.
He had to sign some transfer papers and now I have to get the stuff officialated. Yep that’s my word.
Timer motor repair
He needed some help with his swimming pool controls as a little timer motor stopped working so I got my tools out and helped him with that.
I got it back together and then asked about oranges as he grows some really good ones. He showed me the tree as most of them were gone by now. It was some kind of huge tangerine or something like them and the one I ate was yummy, a real treat. You can’t get them from the stores with the great taste you can get them from off the tree, much better.
Walmart was a bust
Now off to Walmart to get a few things. That was a waste as they were out of most of the stuff I wanted. Oh well I didn’t really need anything and can get by with what I have. I wonder if that’s a sign of some world problems coming up?
Stopped at Joe’s
From there I headed home stopping to visit Joe which is on the way.
Well Joe was home but he was real busy. He’d rented a big lift to cut down some big limbs off a big tree with limbs about two feet in diameter. He was just trimming off some of the limbs as they were shading his garden. The big lift machine was rented by the day so he had to get done to get it back to the rental place.
So we chatted for a short time and I left to let him get back to work and drove on home.
I unloaded the car putting the sacks of chicken feed away.
How much water
Dirt bike ride
Guerneville is a small town by the Russian River that’s in a big forest. It was originally a logging and mining town then a tourist blowout area for the bay area in the old days so it has a lot of history and my great grand dad came into the area around 1862 or so when he was five years old.
Top of the world
Who stole the apples
I rode around a bit more then headed on down the hill to my brother Tom’s garden area. He’d said someone stole all the ripe apples off this tree yesterday and was a bit upset that someone would come in here and do that.
As I approached on the dirt bike and stopped I saw the culprit getting away.
I saw a gray squirrel running off with one of the apples in it’s mouth. So I bet yesterday a whole pack of them were in that tree and that’s were all his apples went.
Plums and strawberries
I was headed to the strawberry patch but first I had to get by this plum tree. The plums looked ripe so I picked one and ate it and it was real yummy, just right. I think he said they were plumcots or something like that.
Only a few strawberries
I didn’t do as well at the strawberry patch as they’d just been picked but I did find a few ripe ones.
I went on home and put the bike away and did some chair hopping and puttering around the yard but mostly just enjoyed the day.
