This trip was all about meeting up with Tammy, our Daily Warrior, again. I first met Tammy when she lived in Sonora. Mom was still alive and made that trip with me. It was one of my last with mom. Click here for more about that first meeting. Tammy loves to share her Beloved cabin in the woods. The threatening weather gave Elaine and I some worries about even MAKING up there, but Saturday morning broke with clear blue skies dotted with white, fluffy clouds. There was nothing threatening to keep up on our way.
Tammy's home is filled with loving adornment and soft colors. Entering her house is like entering the embrace of a peaceful oasis, a place that will call you back again and again. Tammy says she collects only one thing, teapots and tea cups but I found angels everywhere as well. This little fellow is in the front yard, some of Dave's bulbs waiting to be set into the ground.
And speaking of Dave, no doubt about it, he is Tammy's most loving and tender adornment.
After a detailed exploration of Tammy's home, we headed into Pollock Pines to lunch at Los Hermanos. We had so much fun. We were like four chattering magpies that had a lot to say and there was no stilling us. The waiter got into the spirit of things and we decided that the next trip would include lunch at the Chinese restaurant next door. And then there was a hot dog place too. And, and, and. . . for such a little town, Pollock Pines offers a great variety of food.
Barbara called me the next day, delighted that she had had the chance to meet Tammy and Dave. Barb's Jeff is a fisherman and so is Tammy's Dave. I think it is only a matter of time before fishing plans are made. Oh, and Barbara has four grandsons. Guess who ELSE has four grandsons? There will be no lack of conversational topics with eight little boys to discuss and compare notes over.
The eyes definitely have it. Come visit. You will leave the better for it.
And just one more thing.
I noticed that today is the first day of the third year of my blogging. Happy Bloggiversary to ME. Let the FUN continue.
