Stoned by Medusa

Today we celebrated the 60th birthday of the General Mills Lodi plant at Six Flags in Vallejo. We went on Medusa the tallest, longest, fastest and scariest roller coaster in northern California. It made the Wild Thing at ValleyFair look like a kiddy ride. There was no rhyme or reason for each turn, twist, bank, corkscrew or loop, and when we got off we were short of breath and had noodle legs. Check out this video.

Syd Russ

After the addition of some more life (our new orange tree Josh and I collectively named Syd Russ) and a new grill to our patio, we may actually sit and enjoy the beautiful nights here. In the morning, it's pretty chilly (around 55-60º). It heats up very quickly in the afternoon to the high of the day which is normally around 90-95º. Then by 8:30 or so it cools of to around 75º. It's a great time to be out and we like to take walks with Lucy on the path.

In our complex, around the second pool is this fence that encompasses a large area of grass. We started taking Lucy out there to play. (she hasn't spontaneously jumped in the pool yet)

Greetings from Lucy

Hey everyone! This is my bed, I like it a lot! I've been told it's for ya'll to sleep on when you come to pet me. I will keep it warm until then.

the digs

I was finally able to take a break and get out to take some pictures. This is the area between our building (on the right) and the building next to us. Our apartment is the first one on the right (behind the stairs). Straight ahead is the gate out to a path that runs between the complex and the"nature reserve area."

I hate this color, but it's everywhere.

This is where everyone gets to sleep when they come to stay!!
