ON THE BACK BURNER

july 16

My friend and I tried to go to a point where we could see the peaks of the Olympic mountains. We got as close as Port San Angeles , but the mist and clouds on the mountain made us reconsider, so we did lunch instead and drove almost  100 miles round trip in beautiful country side. The name of the road we were to take is called" Hurricane Trail". Not a good omen. The last 18 miles, I am told is of switch backs, not my favorite form of driving. But the day was full and it ended at my cabin with the kids coming for dinner.That is always a treat... for all of us. We tallied up the years we have known each other and it added up to 30. Hard to believe. Can this be true. Seems like just the other day we were entering races together... and then pigging out. We still do the piggie thing.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
