I, too, hope the two gals remained friends.  But how come we didn't get to see the front of the postcard with a picture of the hotel?  It would still be reversed if you showed the reverse side first, & the picture side after as we generally tend to show post cards the other way round.

Recognized the place right away!  Was there in '92.  Our hotel was just across the way & we could see the stadium very well from our room.  I didn't go to a game there, but my daughter did.

I think I'm remembering this story from a while back, but it was worth repeating.  Some of life's best moments are lovely surprises!

Coal isn't the only thing mined using mountain top or terrace methods.  'Next door' to us in Calaveras County is the Carson Hill Gold Mining Corp. &, as you've shown in your last picture, part of the Carson Hill mountain top has been removed & ugly open terracing descends from there.  A real eyesore in an otherwise lovely countryside.

I think Wendy has it right.  The old stories and fables and legends are so much more fun that the actual facts.  Who wants facts when you can have a great old story?!!

Hmm?  How do you 'tip' an Air Jordan's shoe?  Relevancy hasn't changed much.  Kid's shoes still cost an arm and a leg!

That ride would probably not be my 'cup of tea' I'm afraid.

I'm with you.  I have NEVER liked clowns - any kind of clown.  I don't know why?  I don't remember any bad thing happening that was caused by or included a clown.  But I still don't like them!

I'm with Violet.  Who in the world ever thought these types of big wheel-small wheel bicycles were a great design?  Exhibitionists, that's who!  Why else would anyone try to ride one?  To be seen, of course!  I've noticed even today most bikes have low handlebars.  I liked my bike with higher handlebars so I could just sit back & peddle gently along enjoying the view.

Well I don't know?  If you were a cow and it was hot, lying down in cool wet grass might feel pretty good.  Funny thing about that - deer, on the other hand, when it rains, get up and move about.

I didn't know that about deer. We both learned something here. Thanks +La Nightingail ! :)

Looking back at the high school history trip I helped chaperone in 1992, I cannot believe I missed seeing some very important buildings or places along the way that would have interested me greatly because of my musical background:  Carnegie Hall in New York, & Symphony Hall in Boston, as well as the amphitheater where the Boston Pops always plays on the 4th of July.  Actually, I could not have gotten down to see the amphitheater; but I might have been able to arrange a way to see the other two.  I just never thought about it with everything else going on, but I sure kicked myself when I got home & thought about it - too late!

The tree she painted in her 'First dinner given to the Aborigines' painting caught my eye immediately as it looks amazingly like a tree my father painted in one of his watercolors - while he was living in Berkeley, CA!  :)
Martha Berkeley née Chauncy (1813 - 1899) was my third great grand aunt, the sister of Philip Chauncy (1816 - 1880), my great great great grandfather. Martha arrived in Adelaide South Australia in February 1837 on the John Re...

Similar climates for Adelaide and California :) . A lot of eucalypts were exported to California. Newcomers to Australia found painting Eucalypts a bit of a challenge. I think Martha has done quite a good job.
