Welcome, come on in kitchen haze. The smoke is not too bad today. It has very over the week from almost none to the unhealthy stage. I am not sure how the fires that are burning are faring. Most most be under control as I have seen very little in the news. We are still hearing about the eclipse daily. Our library is supposed to have viewing glasses today. We hope to get a couple.



I have always like these pictures of the squirrel. He sure enjoyed the seed and came around for his meal as long as we’re park there. We got some good news this week. I think our caregiver problem might be solved. It will mean a lot of paper work. We went shopping yesterday for groceries and both were tired. I haven’t been doing much except reading.





A couple of sunsets and some cloud formations taking over our time here. I have always like the picture below. I not sure where it was taken. Probably, in the USA highway 395 in northeastern California.




I don’t have many ARC’S for the next couple of weeks and I have have been reading an old favorite series about Lt. Mendoza and the men of the homicide department of Los Angels. They were written by Dell Shannon aka Elizabeth Linington. The first one CASE PENDING was written in 1960 and it give a good idea about cigarettes and how people view Mexicans and blacks.

    I hope you aren’t bothered by the smoke anymore. We’ve had the smoky haze here in Portland, too but because I haven’t been out, I really haven’t been exposed to it.
