I am playing hooky today...
it is way too nice to be here posting.
Yesterday, I went out to the
daughter's to tie back her rose bush,
which wants to take over the
yard, the walk way in particular.
Then back to the house.. to
a heck of a mess. Seems that the state
decided to reblack top our
highway 200. Now sometimes that isn't such
a bad thing.. but when you
figure out that the whole town of Kootenai,
is on one side of the
highway, with all kinds of side roads that take you
in to the town... and those
side streets were all closed except for one.
And no forwarning at all...
usually they have a sign saying on this date,
the roads will be closed..
Well, to say it was driving
(no pun intended) us all nuts is an
understatement. Then the
light bulb went on.. at the end of our
road which is a dead end..
there is a path.. large path..
enough for a car..
So that is how the King got
home, and we got to town..
It didn't take long for
others to see our beaten path
and join us. There was traffic from McGhee Road to the
coffee shop at
the other end of the
town..(6 blocks for those not local) which is our whole
town's exits.. It is either
that, or go out the north end and travel 17 miles
of back roads to highway 95.
And this went on until at least 6pm.
Of course, normally, I am a
pretty much of a stay at home person, but
yesterday I had 4 different
times I had to go down town and out of town.
But today... it is going to
be the hottest day of the year so far.. Today,
I am going to find things to
do in the yard. Hook up the speakers to
I-pod.. get the ice coffee
out... this is SUMMER FOLKS.. And summer is
