A quick "Blog" note before our nightly walk with Joey our dog. Here on the west coast we are not having the extreme heats like the midwest and eastern states. If it is 89 today that is considered nice. I did some watering and weed pulling in the garden. I discovered the other day that my Tarragon plant was eaten alive. I have had it for 8 or 9 years but all the fragrant leaves were gone. It might be a rabbit or maybe a gopher eating the plant from underneath. We were thinking of going RVing in the Reno area but heard that this weekend was one of the busiest, many people taking off the whole 5 days for the Fourth of July. So will just stay home. As in many states the fire danger is extreme as its very dry here in California. Time to sip some tea on the deck.
A CRACKER JACK POSTCARD - Here the bears are stirring up some sweet candy we call Cracker Jacks. I still buy boxes of the treat once in awhile hoping for lots of the nuts. The prices are not too exciting.

NATURAL BRIDGE in Virginia, is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, was surveyed by young George Washington in 1750. It became the private property of Thomas Jefferson in 1774 by royal grant from King George III of England. It is 215 feet in height, with the width of 100 feet and a span of 90 feet, and is an unique object of wonder and interest to all.
Right now I would not mind sitting under this natural arch and cooling my feet in the stream.

Here is a lovely cabinet card of a young couple getting married. I wish the couple was identified and where they were married, but most cabinet cards do not give this information unless the couple writes it on the back. But I do know the photographer is from the Wollensak Studio in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
