A Fine Sunday During Vacation!

We had a lovely day, watching U.S. Open tennis, playing computer games, reading and relaxing.

We went to Sauvie Island and got corn in the afternoon -- and took some over to sister Sue and her family. Sue's doing really well, by the way -- thanks for all your kindnesses about her!

In the late afternoon, Marilyn took me for a ride up the Columbia River Gorge. We had coffee at the Starbucks in Hood River, then came back on the Washington side so we could stop and shop at the Super WalMart there.

We also stopped at Dog Creek and took some photos (I haven't downloaded them yet, so I'll share later). I was wading in the creek so Marilyn could get photos of me with the falls behind me -- and we were laughing so hard we almost wet ourselves. (grin)

Shopping at WalMart could have gone better. We had no shopping list, so we didn't get everything we needed. (sigh) But we got some of the things, at least, so I guess that's okay.

We came home and I fixed fried red tomatoes (all the green ones we picked have turned) and white rice -- it was really yummy!

Now we're watching "The Waltons" and relaxing -- and ready for some sleep...

By the way, I'm reading the novel Saint Michael: A Romance," by E. Werner (translated by A. L. Wister). It's been a really good read, and I got it for free from Gutenberg.Org (which I dearly love).

And that's it for today!
