We had the strangest looking sunset tonight. The sun shone through the clouds like a laser, making the grass across the highway look like melted gold. Very striking looking.

The other day I tried to get a picture of the grasses across the highway — the wind was blowing them in undulating waves. Fascinating to watch, I took a video of it with my camera, but I can’t embed it into my blog here. I’ll have to post it to FaceBook and then put the link to it here.

There was an article in the Tehachapi News recently about the proposed WalMart superstore that’s been in the works for a number of years. The City of Tehachapi is now requiring WalMart to agree to pay a hefty tax  ($99k +) each year, ostensibly for landscaping and roadway maintenance and additional police services. I don’t know if WalMart wants to build here bad enough to pay. We shall see… For myself, I really do want WalMart to build here. We need it. We also need the hospital to be finished, and we need more doctors and specialists to move their practices here so we don’t have to drive to Bakersfield or Lancaster/Palmdale (40 miles in either direction off the mountain). These ‘wants’ aren’t unreasonable, but a certain segment of the community do not want any kind of growth to change their town. Truly, change is inevitable. Best to accept it and make the best of it.

Not much else going on. Speaking of Bakersfield, we’ll be heading there tomorrow. I have a gift certificate for a quilt shop there, and coupons for CostCo. When I come home with my new 2 Terabyte external hard drive, I will hook up the two older computers that have died for various reasons, and download any files left on them. Then I’ll take the machines to a recycling center so they can be re-made into something new. I much prefer recycling to just putting it in the landfill. There’s too much that goes into the landfill as it is.

Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
