We Know Your Pet By Name

How do you not love a place where you can ride your horse to Radio Shack?

A Day in Kooskia

Our son has been playing basketball this year and we've enjoyed going to the surrounding areas to watch him play. Today we traveled to Kooskia (pronounced Koos-key) - about 25 miles northeast of Grangeville - for a basketball tournament. The drive there was beautiful. We saw white tail deer and even some wild turkeys (no kidding!). Between games we played at a park along the Clearwater River and took a hike in the lovely 65 degree weather.

And who would have thought that we'd have the best Chinese food we've had in years in Kooskia, population 675?
The boys played their hearts out and we'll remember this fun family day in Kooskia for a long time to come.

Country Mouse in the City

Country Mouse came to visit me in the City! Even though it went by so quickly we had such a nice time and I was so glad she and my niece (and my nephew kind of) could spend a few days with us.

(I hope you don't mind me posting this pic!)

City Mouse - Christmas View

This photo is more about Christmas in California than about city vs. country life.

Here's the view from my backdoor:

Merry Christmas everyone!

Blue Fox Theater

My little town of about 3200 people has a movie theater. Located on main street, it shows one movie a week, Mon-Thurs at 6:30pm and on the weekends adds an extra showing at 9pm. Last week my husband and I went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows there and really enjoyed it. Living in a town with very limited forms of entertainment makes one appreciate a small town movie house.

City Mouse - Now That's Scary

Last Monday we carved a couple of pumpkins for Halloween and put them outside on a chair near the front door.

On Saturday afternoon Alex told me he was sorry he broke the pumpkin.

When I checked it out I realized it had gotten so soft it fell in! I looked inside and it was furry with mildew.

No way was I putting my hand in there to rescue the candle. Everything went in the yard trash bin Saturday night.

Lesson: Jack-o-lanterns shouldn't be carved more than a day or two before Halloween in California.
