Now Friday really felt like 5th Saturday.....I slept in to 0815 hours! Friday was also reputed to be a very exciting day in the Tour de France, so I pulled up the recording which began sometime around 0500 hours and began playing it.....I noted it was close to 5 hours long, so I settled in to watching, and typing my blog. By the time my blog entry was completed it was close to 10 am, and it was warming up outside so we moved outside to cook breakfast and watch the last few hours on the outdoor TV.
I have also started the 18th Dave Robicheaux novel, The Glass Rainbow (James Lee Burkes).....including this one there are only 3 left. In between #17 and 18 I re-read a novel by Louis L'Amor called Sitka, which I had not read since my college days. It just became available on Kindle within the past month. Needless to say, it was like reading it for the first time as over 45 years have transpired since my first reading.
The campground is beginning to fill up in anticipation of the 14th annual Tahoe Family Encampment sponsored by the Palmdale Church of Christ. This annual event brings several thousand folks into the campground and it will resemble, to a degree, the 4th of July crowds we 'enjoyed' a few weeks ago. As I write the campground looks to be approaching SRO.
Around 1330 hours we finished watching the 19th Stage of the Tour de France and decided to take a 5 mile bike ride to visit a few local thrift shops, and to pick up a couple of household items at the local DIY (Do It Yourself) Center. I didn't find anything I couldn't live without, however TLE found four, or five paperbacks, and a pair of parrot earrings....total cost....$4.52.
We were back home by 3:30, and once again ensconced in our outdoor lounge chairs reading and enjoying the last few hours of 5th Saturday......back to work on Real Saturday!
Thanks for stopping by!
