Good 42º clear morning. Got warm and sunny yesterday. Eighty something.
Aaron and Marie managed to sleep in a little bit. Aaron showed Marie hot to shoot the .17cal rifle Jerry made for me. She even got a ground squirrel up on the stump!
Then we went to Grants Pass. Stopped at Brian's. Chatted with Jen. The kids were at their other grandma's and Brian was delivering stuff to storage. So we took a drive out the river road to Tap Rock and had lunch.
We explored around there, went down to the river and checked out a jet boat. Then to the drive through car wash (which Marie had never seen before)
We stopped at RR park under the bridge and fed the geese ...
While we were there a young man was fishing. He came out of the water with this GIANT fish! ...
Interesting, as Aaron and Marie got stopped in RR by the poleece at 2am on Saturday morning, I was followed by a RR cop through town and then he hit his lights as we started out towards my house. After I showed him my ID and mentioned he, Officer Frownfelter, had been at my house this past year for a prowler he remembered me. Said he ran my plate and it came back UTL! Huh? He ran it twice as IM417 and again as 1M417. Nada. Guess I make a trip to DMV on Monday!
He asked about the Eagle Globe and Anchor sticker I had on my truck and I said my husband had been a Marine as well as my son Brian. He smiled and said he also had been in the Corps. We high fived! Smiling myself, I wondered the thoughts of passing motorists as he had his red lights on me and we were high-fiving! LOL.
Anyway.... back home and Aaron and Marie took the golf cart off on an exploring adventure to the pond and around the area.
The three of us and Maggie took a run to Dave and PJ's and just in time to catch Patty and Cliff before they left to give them the avocados I picked up at Costco and she the tequila she picked up for me at the coast. Fair exchange... avocados for
The kids watched Saturday Night Fever with John Travolta (forgot how much cussing went on in that film!) We had dinner, roast beef in crockpot with mushroom gravy and carrots and red potatoes. Some more TV and then bed. Sunset before 8pm was pretty....
