Dogs of Fawskin etc.,

You know I have all these dogs of Fawnskin snaps and I haven’t done much about them. So guess it is time to introduce you to Soleil. She is a sweet little gal that loves her walks in the woods and along the lakeshore. Soleil has a zest for life and the energy of a young puppy and keeps her mistress in line…

Today I ambled down to the Friends of Fawnskin yard sale. I missed out on a couple of items because I was chatting with some neighbors and other residents. Oh well!

I also stopped by to see Mike at the Fawnskin Market. He said there was nothing going on–but I don’t believe him. I imagine that some think he still is in the trial period. It takes at least a year for people to believe you are staying and warm up to you in most parts of the valley… Doris always had the dirt and was a great source. Wonder what she is up to in Daggett.

Just up the road on my amble home, Barbara and I chatted. She lives just past Fire House 49 and reports that her kids were going to paint the exterior of her house today. It is going to be a light color instead of the old brown so common from the past.

I wonder how they did in the downpour today. Hope they didn’t cuss at the sky because we sure need this rain.

Tonight is the last artist reception at Serenity Place Gallery. The gallery is owned by Fawnskin residents Cindy and Louis so HM and I are headed over to get a last gander at the place. Makes us all sad to see such a wonderful business close.

I wanted to get some old dishes to give to Cindy to break but didn’t have any luck at the yard sale. If you have any let me know. Once, I got a bop bag to take out all my frustrations. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I got one with Donald Duck on it (cuz I don’t like the character) and wouldn’t you know it, I broke the darn thing (never mess with someone who has martial arts training).

Figure that it is best to get such stuff out of the system in a way that moves it but doesn’t create any real harm…

I hate to end on a sad note but I only just heard the Fawnskin resident Mary Lou Drake passed on. I always looked forward to seeing her on Sunday for the local’s breakfast. She was always energetic and positive. She lived a good life and left a mark on a whole lot of hearts.

She and Bob were spending a lot of time down at their desert oasis so a memorial mass is scheduled for her on September 8th at Our Lady of the Desert Catholic Church at 9am.
