Our Playtime in Weed....

Russell and I had such a great time visiting our friends Bill and Ewana...
we always do! Could it be the fun times playing trianimos? Here's Bill
patiently keeping score and patiently ignoring our pouting (me)
and gloating (Russell).
Or could it be the always fabulous and delicious meals prepared by Ewana?
Nope! It's the fact that they are just doggone good friends we enjoy sharing adventures and good times with.....such as the Yreka Golden Fair.


While we were visiting we got to see Tony (Ewana's son )
get his old pickup out from behind the barn...now that was a process!
We went to the fair for 3 days-it was fun watching the families
and kids having so much fun!


Here are a few photos from our time at the fair:
First there was the C and W concert...

Then the rodeo! Yee Haw!


Finally, the Destruction Derby with one of the cars having Russell's name on it
as Bill and Ewana had cooked up this scheme to surprise Russell...it worked!
What a hoot.
All in all it was a splendid 5 days in the Mt Shasta area...
thanks Bill and Ewana!
