COFFEE/TEA SHARE SEPTEMBER 23, 2016

If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell you to come inside out the wind. Let you select your your drink treat. There are pumpkin muffins for the game this afternoon when Boise State meets Oregon State. The weather has changed this week. A storm is passing through bringing rain and strong winds.Β On my walks around the area you see the leaves are starting to changed. Yellow is the predominant leaf color right now. Yesterday we went breakfast and stopped at our pharmacy for flu and pneumonia shots.

MEMORIES:

One of mine of Boise is the Union Pacific Train Depot. It stood outside of the city limits looking down Capital Blvd toward the state capitol. I remember the trains passing through Boise carrying the Japanese at night. Both the Freedom and Friendship trains stopped at the Boise Depot. The Freedom Train was to remind Americans of the horrors of war. The Friendship train collected food to send to France and Itlay after World Two. Today the Depot is no longer in used and the deport is in the center of Boise. It still looks down Capitol Blvd, but many other buildings now dwarfed the capitol. The depot now belongs to the city parks and recreation department. The golden blocks were sold to buy the depot.

There is family history for me as my paternal grandfather’s nurseysupplied the plants for the original garden. I board the CITY OF LOS ANGELS in 1953 to take me to Chicago to complete my training as a lab technician. This was my first trip out of Idaho.

If we were having coffee/tea, I would sure my feeling about my blog. This week I reached 450 followers and 46 additional at Tumblr.

A BIG THANK YOU TO MY FOLLOWERS, VIEWS, LIKES, AND COMMENTS. It made my day and brought on a smile. This blog was an accident and laid dormant for awhile. I decided to learned to use it and enrolled in BLOGGING 101 which later became BLOGGING UNIVERSITY. I made friends and learned how to use the Internet now. I have using the Internet since 1985 when I got my first computer. I preceded to wipe DOS off it the first week. Later one of my brothers and a nephew convinced me to format the hard drive. I am glad I did it as it taught me a lot. The most important thing was if you had a backup, you could recreate most things.

It has been while since I shared pictures of Kato. Here are a few. He is now very happy this morning as he hasn’t his walk. Bob says it is TOO COLD, BUT KATO DOESN’T BELIEVE HIM.

    I love to see old train depots and hear their history. Fascinating. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Kato is beautiful! Izzie may have a crush on him. :o)

  4. Nancy says:

    It was very interesting learning a littl Boise history. Thanks for sharing. The pumpkin muffins sound yummy! My son promised to bring me home a pumpkin from the farm where he works. I won’t make muffins from it but I can’t wait to put it out on the porch to decorate! Kato is truly a gorgeous creature (as, I am sure, he is totally aware of πŸ˜‰). Have a great week.

  5. Thanks for sharing your memories and fun photos! ~Tara

  6. DailyMusings says:

    Love the photos and memories! Kato is such a beauty. Pumpkin muffins sound perfect- I love anything pumpkin! Trader Joe’s (a store here) has their seasonal Pumpkin Spice coffee for the Keurig machine and it is divine!

  7. It’s been years since I visited Boise! My ex lived in Caldwell for a year. Congrats on your followers, BettyLouise!

    • The Boise I left in 1955, doesn’t exist any more. Changes keep coming all the time. Today Boise boundaries touch Meridian and Eagle. The Caldwell in 1953 has changed. It is mostly Hispanics now.

    • I think she has 4 under the name of Kyle Logan and she writes the Casey Daniels series.

    • The Boise I left in 1953 doesn’t exist anymore. Meridian Eagle all joined altogether making one huge community. Nampa grows close
      to Boise. Caldwell is a Hispanic city as farm labourers remain in the area. The College of Idaho physical buildings have grown. They have restated the football program which was discontinued after I graduated.

    I think that turkey is bigger than Kato! I know that never stops a true hunter of a cat….

  9. Pamela Morse says:

    I am completely afraid of Kato. I would not start a rumble with him. I love the picture with the tree slice, very exotic.

  10. Betty, I love your blog, your writing, and especially your absolutely gorgeous pictures!

  11. Kathleen Howell says:

    Thanks for sharing your memories of the train depot! I love the types of trees that turn yellow in the fall, especially against a blue sky. Loved your pics of Kato as well! Have a great week!

  12. Joanna Lynn says:

    What a great history you have with Boise. Very cool. Kato is gorgeous…except for the one where he is hissing…I wouldn’t want to meet him when he’s in this mood!
