Traveling with John


BEFORE AFTER

We should know by now. In Australia he missed the bus and was tardy a couple of times., causing us undue worry. He also took us on a short walk to a Thai restaurant that turned into several miles. "It's just a couple more blocks." he said as he did his famous walk-run.
In Tokyo he said, "I know all about the subway, and we'll take it to the Tower."
Several miles of walking after we got off at the wrong station and then walked the wrong way, the Tower came into sight. "It's just a couple of blocks." he said repeatedly.
He has a thing about "short cuts." Both in Tokyo and here in Beijing he took us through holes in fences and over railroad tracks to get to our target destination.
He has finally found someone who can keep up with him. Kaleb, who is 14 went to the top of the GW in record time.

Fires have been mostly contained in our area. Kilarc fire seems to be out and Oak Run fire is not endangering property. Shingletown fires are mostly contained. Trinity not doing so well but light winds are helping. Very smoky here. I'd tell you to leave if you where here and go somewhere with cleaner air. Poor air quality is hard on older peoples.

That's enough! Every time I leave a comment I have to enter a word verification where I 'type the characters you see in the picture above'. Few days ago I had to type WTFCHK and just now I had to type USUKY. To top it off, if I submit this comment I have to type BBTOES.

Chin wo pee gu bfers! Stop messing with me.

Walking in a soft warm rain sounds wonderful. Sacramento is a soup bowl of smoke. I'm glad you guys are there instead of here. this air is very hard on people with asthma and if fireman Richie was here they mite make him "volunteer". dogs are fine. had a nice visit with Joey. Love ya, MOM
