Well, we just got home from a week up in Northern California. When you live in the city, you forget how BIG the world really is. Driving along Hwy 395, we saw miles and miles of open country and acres and acres of farmland populated by cattle, horses, deer, llamas (yes, llamas)sheep, and goats.

We spent the week at Lake Almanor. There are no words to describe how lovely and peaceful it is up there. Nothing but trees and mountains, deer, chipmunks, and squirrels. Some of the deer are so tame, they'll eat out of your hand. One doe ever let us pet her.

Still, it's good to be home. A week in the camper is about all I can stand. I'm happy to be back in the land of flush toilets, bathtubs, and hot running water!!!

My book, NIGHT'S MASTER, should be out the end of this month!
