I’m definitely getting the local California fire updates and thought it was time to share one in case you all don’t get them. Russ and I think about Mi Wuk Village and the area all the time. Actually, he’s cooking spaghetti sauce this morning as I type. Yes we miss it. But yes, we really do like it here in the outskirts of Boise ID. No pine needles!!! Actually, not much landscaping either. It’s high desert and our plants/trees are scattered throughout LOTS of rocks!
Be fire wise folks. And hugs to you all. And to the trees!
HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL/AUTUMN.
