We headed over to the sale and found it wasn't what we thought it was. A couple of times a year the antique store holds a big sale and invites other vendors in to sell antiques in a yard sale setting. This was more of a garage sale setting and not many vendors. We browsed everything and ended up with nothing. Oh well..
My sister Wendy and her husband Shawn will be retiring in a few years. Shawn loves the gun laws and other things about NV so they'll be out in a bit to see some little towns and decide where they may want to live. Shawn was born and raised in Minnesota so I thought he'd want to move there, but he doesn't like the winters.
Wendy had been looking on the internet and found this house in Fallon. Since we were there we decided to drive by and take a picture. It needs tons of work. I did like where it sits out in the country. Today I saw there is a sale pending. which i'm thinking is a good thing for Shawn and Wendy. Think they may need more of a move in ready home. I do like the country side of Fallon.

|The house Wendy liked..kinda cool, but would take so much|
work..10 acres of overgrown desert.
Drove by Lake Lahontan which is definitely higher than we've ever seen it!
|Lake Lahontan so full..|
|This is right near Highway 50..amazing|
After that we decided to head for Lowe's in Fernley so Ken could get some plumbing stuff to cut in a fitting for a new sewer line to where the out house will be. Got what we needed and then it was 1300. We were hungry but not starving, so opted for Pioneer Crossing and their 1 trip salad bar for lunch.
After that we headed home and by then the day was done pretty much. Had some leftover meatloaf and I made a veggie burger for dinner.
We watched some of the old movies we made again when the grandkids were young. WOW...then off to bed in the guest room as it was still so hot.
This morning I slept until 0400. Believe me i want to sleep longer, just my body wakes up and won't let me go back to sleep. So I tossed and turned till 0520 then started the coffee.
Ken tied into the sewer line this morning before it go unbearably hot. He had to run to ACE hardware in town and on the way back he called and I started his poached eggs. We had breakfast and then I thought how about if I use the blower on the front deck and patio area (why did I do that?)..hot! Got it done and asked Ken if there were any cold Corona Light out in the garage frig. It was about 1215 and I was dying of thirst. I know it's early, but water just didn't cut it. We sat on the front porch swing and drank our beers. Not quite finished our neighbor, Joe walked over. He's been gone the last two weeks fighting the wild land fires in NV. He works for Nevada Division of Forestry and is charge of an inmate crew. He's home for 2 days and back out for 14. So hot, I can't even imagine doing his job. He's tough, and so is wife Stacey who holds down the fort while he's gone.
Stacey walked over as they were getting ready to pick up their daughter Rylee from her grandma's in town. Well, being it was so hot talked them into a few beers too. Actually wasn't too hard to talk Joe into a beer or two as he hasn't had any in at least two weeks.
|Joe and the fire behind|
|Rylee drew this pic of her dad fighting fires..love|
it ..she's 7..
|Stacey and some well deserved beers ..haahah|
Not all were hers..
They left, we ran into town to do a refill on beer and wine in case they come back over later. A few treats for Rylee too.
Now we're in the air-conditioning just relaxing. Nice.
