Saturday Stuff:

Happy Earth Day, friends!  Bend and Redmond are having celebrations, and maybe we will will check some of them out ... but maybe we won't.  We have some running around to do today that leads us into those fine cities though.

We woke up to fog! What the heck?   I'm sure that it will burn off pretty soon, but yesterday was the warmest day that we have had in six months, at a balmy 65*.  Today is supposed to be in the mid-seventies and tomorrow in the 80's. 

Just wanted to let you know about today's posts:

1. The A - Z Challenge: "S" is for Seagull "Steve Sterling and the Evil Seagull"

2.  Saturday Re-Post: North Santiam State Park

3.   This week's Sepia Saturday theme is gardening.  I posted my entry on Wednesday, and it is way buried by now.  Here is the link, if you haven't seen it yet:  John Riley, 1898: First the Poor Farm and then the Insane Asylum

I just found the postcard below though, and thought that you might enjoy it.  It was sent in 1909 from a distant cousin of mine, J. A. McCracken to my Great-Great Grandfather John Letsom.

Happy Earth day back at ya. My little town didn't celebrate as it was festival time. I had to celebrate in my own way.
