Another Eastern Sierra Sunset!!!






"There's never one sunrise the same or one sunset the same."


Click on Carlos Santana for a trip down memory lane to Woodstock...
I don't know about you...but I think the 60's and 70's music is still the best...EVAH!!!

 
This is the same sunset as the one I posted Wednesday...just about 5-10 minutes later!!!

Our Little Corner of the World...




...is changing...


"If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies."
Author Unknown


Life is changing for TheChief and Chieftess!!!

TheChief is in the process of retiring...and my poor ol' bod
hasn't been fairing very well with the altitude.

Well...to make a long story short...
I brought the kitties and Kelly down to Glendale in mid June
and have been shuttling back and forth from Mammoth to Glendale
packing this and that, and getting the Glendale house back in shape...
TheChief is retiring at the end of the year.
We put the house up for sale in June and a week to the day later,
we were signing papers accepting an offer...

Who knew it would only take a week to sell???
And, that we'd have just six weeks to get re-situated???

Soooo...
Mammoth Lakes Daily Photo will be going through some changes too...

I'm taking time off to get the house back in shape...
and figure out what my next step will be in the blogosphere!!!

I'll pop in to visit now and then over the next few months...
and possibly post every now and then as I'll be up and back regularly until TheChief is done...
so stay tuned...
and I'll keep you posted!!!


(I'll be back tomorrow with another great Eastern Sierra sunset)

As the Blue Bird Sings...





"Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her,
still she sings away all the same, 
knowing she has wings."
Victor Hugo



I'm pretty sure this isn't a Bluebird...even though it's a blue bird...
Any birders out there know what kind this one is?  
She's perched on a tufa tower at Mono Lake...

Castles in the Air???






"You make kingdoms and castles on your own."
Stephan Jenkins



Somehow...I don't think Stephan was being quite literal when he said this...
however...
no one told Daryl Sattui that...

Open! Open! OPEN!!!






"Every normal man must be tempted, at times,
to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
and begin slitting throats."
H.L. Mencken


Or...you could take the convertible out for a ride to Napa and stop
at the Cutthroat Bar (formerly known as the Cutthroat Saloon)
in a charming little town (and I do mean little!)
called Markleeville!!!

Two Degrees of Separation...





"It's a profound thought...
How everyone is a new door opening into other worlds
Six degrees of separation between us and everyone else on this planet.
But, to find the right six people..."
Unknown


It's funny though...
here in Mammoth there's only 2 degrees of separation...
everybody up here knows someone you know...
the guy that built our railing on our deck is from our home town and married to 
a woman related to and working for the owners of the pet store...
our favorite wine bar owner was a fraternity brother of TheChief...
our realtor is best friends with the realtor TheChief used to buy and sell six houses...
and on, and on, and on!!!

Our Little Corner of the World...Expanded!!!





"By making this wine vine known to the public,
I have rendered my country as great a service as if I had enabled it to pay back the national debt."
Thomas Jefferson



No...we're not in Europe!!!
Napa, California....WINE COUNTRY!!!

Castello di Amorosa to be exact...
an authentic medieval Italian Tuscan castle...and winery...right here in California!!!

Built by Daryl Sattui, 4th generation Italian winemaker.
It took over 13 years to build and was fashioned after the many castles and
wineries he visited in Europe.

But don't go planning a wedding here...it's not open for weddings...at least...not yet.
But it's a pretty cool spot to visit and imagine yourself in Tuscany!!!

What Am I???





"I am good, but not an angel.  I do sin, but I am not the devil.
I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love."
Marilyn Monroe



The same can be said for this contraption...
Do you have an idea what this might be???
