Sometimes we took the 4 wheeler and sled if we had to haul a bunch of stuff up there. The chained up vehicles were parked a mile or two away. It was an adventure, to be sure, but I don't wanna do it again. lol

Just wondering why you were living so far north, were you homesteading? That's quite a turnaround, Idaho to Arizona!

I get the AgingCare newsletter via email. Here's an article re: cost of assisted living:

The Price of Long-Term Care - AgingCare.com

I knew it was high, but not that high.

Great article, we would be in the buy in camp as would many folks who have at a minimum the home equity for. My experience is that there is a correlation between the buy in amount and housing cost in the service area. The typical homeowner with no mortgage would have that much equity. Otherwise the company could price themselves out of the market.

Woke up to our first snow of the season. Forecasters are saying we might get as much as 3 inches but I think it will need to continue for many hours or get heavier for that to happen.

Two of the dogs ran out for a very quick pee and then back in but the oldest black lab roamed around the yard as if it were a balmy 70 degrees and sunny. When he finally came in he looked as though he's been sprinkled with sugar.

Your jacket is quite a memento!!! I wish I had created something like that. I took it for granted that there would always be another memory and never stopped to think that one day, it would just be over.
Yeah, he flagged into the early eighties. He even got hit at Lime Rock one year, nothing serious but a buddy of his was paralyzed.

We had about two inches before the rain came, which has stopped around 11:30. Now waiting for the freezing blast.

Friends from about an hour north of me have already had snow today, but the sun just came out here. Strange weather front moving through . . .

Stay warm and safe!!!

We missed the predicted messy storm up here ~ it's rather mild with rain. Rain is good.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to everyone!
