LML events

The womens club is having a wine/cheese meeting Wed at LML at 4pm. Bring wine, a chair and an appetizer and they will supply the frivolity. If you're really feeling like enjoying the great outdoors, stay for the homeowners pot luck mixer. Last weeks was great with about 25 adults and kids there. This time I'll make it too!
FINALLY, some really summer weather. Actually had to water the flowers today. It's beautiful here and I went down to watch the sunset at the big lake last night. Real dramatic clouds and just a gorgeous sunset. Nothing better than sitting on the boat ramp in the middle of the lake at 8pm for the show.
Met new neighbors on Pasquale last night. Rich and Steve bought Archie and Doris's house. They are from Berkley (my birthplace) and are really enjoying the beauty of Nevada City and the shores. I was telling them if you miss Berkeley, you can always go to Mecca Cafe on Commercial and be treated to funky atmosphere and rude employees, and I mean that in a good way.
You'll feel like nice and comfy like you're back home! (It's a Berkeley thing). In the 70's there was a real funky steak house & bar in Port Costa (a little hamlet under the Vallejo Bridge) called the Wherehouse run by Juanita. She was like a female Don Rickles. People used to come from miles around just to be insulted by Juanita. She passed on last year. Too bad, the woman was a 350 lb national treasure!
If you've been following the saga of Big Sam, worlds largest weiner dog (41 lbs when I got him) we finally have a happy ending. I fostered Sam out of the shelter cause he was reported by his owner turn in as a biter, had a bad case of heart worm, and was 10 lbs overweight, dangerous for a guy with 4" legs., and was overlooked for a month at shelter. We got him heartworm treatment, dieted and walked him down to 36 lbs, and found out Sam would not bite even if you bit him first. A nice woman was all set up to adopt him the Monday, and cancelled on Friday. I was so sorry, cause it seemed like the perfect home. Then I decided to take him to Scooterspals adoptathon at Incredible Pets. Within and hour, I had 3 families lined up begging for Big Sam. A WONDERFUL couple that lives on Red Dog was just enchanted by that big old weiner dog with an even bigger heart, and took him home with them. I insisted on visitation rights, cause I really fell for that sweet sweet soul. Little Kate the Chihuahua actually took Sammie's leash and walked him from our door to the gate for his new parents. Awwww.


  1. Kate was walking him to the gate to GET RID OF HIM! She knows only 1 dog will make it to permanent status!

  2. We drove our boat back across the lake from the campgrounds in the dark Saturday night. The moon was so full we didn't even need to turn the boat lights on. It was awesome!

    Enjoy your new home, Sam. You are such a sweetie!

  3. Yea dix, is that why my computer history shows "chloroform" searches? That's it, katie is off the computer!
