Home From The Wars

Fact: 97% of Galapagos Island is declared a National Park because of its scientific significance, and these areas are uninhabited. The rest of the island has a population of about 25,000.

We awoke to the sounds of the city, no macaws or other exotic birds!  We are missing Catalina already!

Scout was up and happy to see us.  He told us about the latest app he has for his iPhone!

No more iPhone apps for Scout

But at 9:00 AM came a different sound, a diesel truck!  Our supplies for part of the new garden arrived and were put on the driveway!

Three hundred linear feet of brick for the low walls surrounding the beds!

When it is done, it will look like the Los Alamitos house!

Here it comes!

The neighbors came out to see what all the noise was about.  We told them about the new vegetable garden, which will be about 1200 square feet in the south part of our back yard.

For the rest of the day, we did wash and put up the clothes!  We were pooped.  We decided to go to Ace’s Bar and Grill for lunch, and we had a steak salad and a glass of wine.

We went to a furrier to find out about storing furs.  Then it was off to Jan’s house, where we shared stories about Avalon this past weekend.

When we got home, we matched another Tom Selleck movie called. Wyoming, 1892: Monte’s been a cowboy for ranchers all his life, but he’s no longer young, and big business is taking over the ranches.

While the movie was on, Mary fixed lunch for us tomorrow since I have a nuclear stress test planned and part of the test requires me to eat some fatting foods; I see a ham and cheese sandwich in my future.

After the movie, we crashed.  We have to be up at 5:00 AM to make it to Los Alamitos at 7:45 AM.

About Paul
