I'm traveling NE to meet up with my older Sister Bonnie and my Brother-in_Law Amon. They are telling me that they are gearing up for a fish fry this Labor Day weekend consisting of the Summers total catch from several different fisherman willing to pony up the $92 for a non residence fishing license. I have packed the trailer and officially headed out last Tuesday. Today, Thursday (3/29/13), I am parked in an RV lot in Burns, OR. About six hundred miles from my destination
just South of Jackson, WY or about 1/2 the way there.
Yesterday was a sad day in Mudville aka San Jose. We had to put our long time friend and companion, Baby the Cat, down for insurmountable medical issues. A fifteen year old cat that would wait in my driveway every day for my return from my many trips. Goodbye Baby. You were one GREAT, one of a kind, one especially nice special cat.
The South Fork of the American (Creek) River, I spotted these large leaf plants on the banks but alas, not a watermelon in sight.
I love catching this bird in action. The American Dipper. They are exciting to watch as they go into the water clasping the rocks and feeding as they go along. They look more like a Robin then your typical water bird. No long legs, they don't float on top of the water nor do they have a specialized beak, if not for sitting on the water, you would never imagine it to be a water bird.

Smoke from the Yosemite fire. This was at a $9 a night U.S. Forest Service campground on Hwy 50 just below Kyburz, CA.
