Well it’s been awhile since I’ve updated the page, but as most of you know, I was on vacation, back in the wonderful Bay Area. So good to see all those cars again. Lori and I stayed with Carol and John at their new house in Hollister. I guess Lori likes Ferndale more than she likes me so she only stayed until Tuesday. I had a seminar on digital printing on Saturday so I stayed the whole week. The picture is of John’s tractor, a late 60’s or early 70’s Ford series 4000 that seems to be leaking every fluid imaginable. He did manage to get it running long enough to mow some of his extensive property and for me to get my picture taken driving it.
It was really nice to get back to Ferndale after a week and a half. Weeds are growing like crazy everywhere, and the deer pretty much destroyed our newly planted orchard. I’m not planting another new thing until we figure out how to deal with the weeds and deer. I think we’re going to be buying a lot of black plant fabric and some tall fences.
