What's Been Happenin'

Luckily, the weather has been gorgeous around here lately, so going out to sell at a flea market on Sunday wasn't too hard to take. The worst part was getting up at 3:00 A.M. to do so. I didn't get rich, but I did sell over eighty books to one customer. These are books that I took out of my Amazon inventory. The guy was riding a motorcycle, so it was quite a sight beholding him laden down with bags of books. He is filling a container to be shipped to Thailand, where he is opening a used book store.

Then, yesterday, I got up at 4:30 to go to a new casino with the seniors. This one is high on a hill (mountain to some people), with an amazing view. The road winding through the vineyards, then up the hill, is beautiful. The whole trip was very scenic. California has seasons, too, and the trees and grapevines are in wonderful hues at this time. The air was great, with a hint of mist. When we arrived at the top of the hill, the view in the early morning consisted of coastal mountains with mist filtering across the peaks. The vineyards stretched across the valley floor, with the occasional Victorian house to anchor property lines.

This panorama can be viewed from the restaurant, through the Arts and Crafts designed French doors, and from the outside dining area. The casino is in the Geyserville area, a bit north of the Russian River.
