Today was the annual homeowners meeting. In the past these events have been very acrimonious, but this year the trouble makers were either staying home, on the run, or in foreclosure, and it was a very pleasant event.
Since no one volunteered their own home for the meeting, it was held squatter style at our shed. (the new recreation center.) Thus there was no need for burnt coffee cake or condiments. Earlier in the year I was hoping to lease a mule and keep her in this pasture, but we never got that plan launched. Long ago I brought lovely Luna, my first horse, up here for a summer.
As the day wore on the smoke from the California fires got so thick the mountains were barely visible.
