Greetings, all. We got back Sunday night. We had a wonderful time, visiting family and doing all the vacation things that one usually does. We, as you know, are not "usual", so we also headed off to the desert, to a town called Niland, California. We visited with Leonard Knight, where he shared his simple message of Love. Leonard is about 77 and his home has no electricity or running water. He gave us a tour and I will be posting lots of pictures later, but for now, here is a shot of DH and me in front of Salvation Mountain.
If you ever get the chance, you must check it out. He has spent over 20 years, building and sculpting out of adobe, then lovingly painting (usually with donated paint) an entire mountain of Love and Faith. He was a wonderful man and he and I really hit it off. We all walked around and talked for quite some time. They even convinced me to climb up to the top of the mountain. I almost stopped, but I figured if he can do it, so can I. Later I saw him drive up the back way in his rickety old car, so I had a little laugh about that.
That's all for now. I will be posting more pics later, after I get them sized, etc. (I have several hundred to work on, so it make take awhile).
Hope everyone had a good week, weekend and holiday. Take care and, as my late uncle used to always say, "let me hear".
