As today is rainy, I’ll share a couple of photos from Saturday. At the Leland Food & Wine Festival, we had a banner day, and the fire truck was there, with ladder extended. After I finished my volunteer stint pouring Verterra’s wines and ciders, I wandered over and asked a question to which I already knew the answer: “do you guys let civilians up on that ladder?” — “No. But we can send your camera up there with one of the guys.” We can thank the kind guys who made possible today’s glimpses from aloft, in particular Paramedic Fire Fighter Jared Ornelas, who took the photos above with my camera.
One of my memories from three-quarters of a century ago was the prominent sweet odor of the lilacs that were everywhere in town (Lander, Wyoming) — in the residential areas.
Not so much anymore; these days I think there are fewer lilac bushes for some reason, and my smeller is getting old and worn out.
Words you wouldn’t want to hear:
“Oops….I dropped it!”
