Good 47º clear morning.
Yesterday I met up with Dee Yellin (wife of infamous Dale, LASD Motors ret) and Jeannie Patterson (wife of another infamous, Bill, LASD Homocide ret) for lunch at Taprock.
The weather was sooooooooo nice. A breeze. We sat on the deck under an umbrella......
Dee...Jeannie... and me..
We all had exactly the same thing, glass of chardonnay and their dungeness crab salad..... lettuce, crab, hard-boiled eggs, bacon, olives, tomato, and avocado. YUMMMMM!
A good time. Good friends. Good food. Good view of the river.
Picture of the Day....
Interesting about largest redwood trees....
General Sherman is a giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) tree located in the Giant Forest of Sequoia National Park in Tulare County, in the U.S. state of California. By volume, it is the largest known living single stem tree on Earth. It is 275 feet in height and thought to be between 2,300 and 2,700 years old.
While the General Sherman is the largest currently living tree, it is not the largest historically-recorded tree. The Crannell Creek Giant, a coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) near Trinidad, California, is estimated to have been 15 to 25% larger than the General Sherman tree by volume. That tree was cut down in the mid-1940s.
