On This Christmas Day

Regular viewers of the blog will recall how Beans and I left home on the very day the wildfires broke out near Santa Rosa, unbeknown to us at the time.  Our home was saved as was the entire neighborhood. Others were not so fortunate.  A friend who lives in my neighborhood toured the Coffey Park area across town where over 3000 homes were lost.  She sent me this photo.  It says a lot.


  1. A sad picture indeed, but a hopeful one. My heart goes out to all those who have lost their homes through these terrible fires. I can't imagine how heartwrenching it must be to watch your home, and your life, go up in flames and not be able to do anything about it.
    I'm wishing you and Beans a happy Christmas day, and I'm anticipating reading many more fascinating accounts of your travels in 2018.

  2. Very sad to see this but so very true.

  3. Glad to hear your place was ok,many were not, a sad time for many people
