New Years Eve...Hello 2010...

The day before we were to leave for Weed ...snow showed up...
Sheer boredom in a traffic jam will lead to photos like this....Where did all these people come from????????
We gave up and went to Fulton Pub for a few hours
rather than sit in traffic.....
The next day we were able to get out of town
and drive 5 hours south to Weed CA to spend
New Years with our good friends Bill and Ewana
We are always happy to see Mt Shasta!
This photo was taken at the Living Memorial Sculpture Garden
in Weed. We had never been here before and were very
impressed by the sensitive and strong sculptures.

Hot LZ Memorial Wall


This piece is entitled The Greatest Generation

After going through the sculpture garden we stopped by
Leonard's Taxidermy to meet Leonard and to check on Russell's Bear rug.
Leonard's taxidermy is more than just a stuffed animal...
he studies the animals in the wild. When I asked him how
he learned to do taxidermy his reply was-
"I went to the library". Really an interesting person!
Whe he hunts he only uses a bow and arrow.
Yow..........step away from the bear.

New Years Eve finds us first at Mt Shasta Brewing...
Russell is rolling his eyes as I tickle him...

Bill and Ewana at the pub...

Then we went to listen to Leonard and friends play music
at a local watering hole.....we stayed until 1130pm...
even got a few dances in! Then back to the house to play
a few wicked games of Trionimoes before 2010 rolled in...
New Years Day we went to another home where they
have an inordinate amount of "stuff".
Such as old tractors....
Here's Lily one of their 4 dogs....


Annie thought I was the best thing since sliced bread or dog chewies...

One of the out buldings had a lot of old cars and parts...

and an Africa room....Safari style....yikes
Back at Bill and Ewana's home...
Russell and Ewana made delicious pizza...

and Tuffy snoozed....we had a great New Years!
