On the road back home from Shaver Lake, Camille and I headed up the two lane highway out of the one-stop-sign town of Ione. A few miles outside of the town, I pointed out my favorite road sign to Camille. She read it, burst out laughing, and begged me to pull over so she could take a picture. I watched her run back to the bridge, flip flops slapping the hot asphalt, take her pictures, then jog back to the car, diving into the air conditioned coolness -- it was 103F outside.
Brett had his appointment with the orthopedic surgeon today. His knee replacement is scheduled for September 2nd.
Thank you to everyone who offered to send us rain. I wish! The fire season usually starts in August and is at its worst in September. We've already had more fires this year than normal -- and we haven't even hit the bad months yet. So, yes, rain would be most welcome! We've had beautiful cloudy skies, stunning sunrises and sunsets, but no rain. And we probably won't get rain until November... which is a long way off.
