We are still waiting to start working, and that is a whole other story. It is not just us, but pretty much everyone who has arrived to start working is still waiting to start working....it is a corporate issue. Our arrangement here is that we work for minimum wage, but are only charged for 1/2 our site cost......not a bad deal. The good news is "they" have decided, due to the corporate snafu, that we will not begin to be charged for our site until we start working and start getting paid. So we trundle on just enjoying being here enjoying the great SLT** vibe.
So, what happened Wednesday that was noteworthy? Personally, I think just being able to spend every day this summer here in SLT* is noteworthy, whether, or not we work one solitary second....being able to watch pretty much every World Cup match we wish to watch is noteworthy......being where it is not 100 degrees, and 90% humidity is noteworthy......having complete control of what we do each and every day is noteworthy.....waking up every morning in a forest of sugar pines is noteworthy.
We started out watching the first two WC*** matches of the day (Australia vs. Netherlands, and Chile vs. Spain), and then around 2 pm headed out for an 11.5 mile bike ride up to the end of the Camp Richardson bike path, stopping off at Sonney's BBQ on our way back for a pint and a plate of those amazing Nak'd Jalepeno Poppers before arriving back home around 4 pm to watch the 2nd half of the 3rd WC*** match of the day.
So Wednesday was one more day lived well.....lived on our terms.....no schedules, no obligations, no worries.....Oh, I almost forgot.....Clayton Kershaw (Dodger's star left handed pitcher) pitched a complete game no-hitter striking out 15, with no walks. He was one bad throw by the short stop from a perfect game.....that is certainly noteworthy, too.
Thanks for stopping by!
