42 years and bologna sandwiches!

Decided to take a few days and go camping...figured we see how the Aspens have changed over the last few weeks.  So Monday am we headed out and decided to head for a campground near Markleeville, CA where we have stayed before years ago.  Enjoyed our stay there and Ken bar b qued some awesome chicken for dinner!   

Got up the next day and headed out planning on ending up at June Lake, CA.

42 years ago on September 16th 1972 Ken and I got married in Carson City, NV.  We headed to Tahoe Vista on North Shore Lake Tahoe, stopping at the local Safeway and having bologna sandwiches for dinner.  The next morning Ken made scrambled eggs with bologna chopped up in them.  So what better way to celebrate 42 years?!  Bologna sandwiches on white bread for lunch! Yummm...haven't had bologna in years! It still tasted just as good!  We stopped at the lookout point overlooking Mono Lake and had a great lunch with an incredible view! 

This is what we had 42 years ago...and it was ohhhh so good 42 years later!

Our lunch spot...looking over Mono Lake
 We got to June Lake and found our camping spot...about 1/2 hour after getting set up Ken noticed a fire across the lake...We watched it for the two days and nights that we were there.  What we didn't know is that over in CA near Bryan and Cheryl there is a huge fire named the "king" fire that is just burning out of control.  
This happened just about 1/2 hour after we got to June Lake

The sun was setting and u could sure see the flames!

Planes dropping retardant..

our campsite!

Doesn't he look relaxed?!

 By the time we left on Thursday am the fire was basically out and most of the air power was probably sent to the King fire in Ca...awesome job those firefighters did!  

About a month ago we ordered a 5 foot porch swing from Louisiana and it was delivered yesterday.  Ken put it up today and we absolutely love it!  
Ordered our front porch swing from Louisiana Cypress Swings and Things
Made in America

We loved this design

Time for some front porch setting! 
Tomorrow we are going to take a ride to Reno and visit the RV show that's going on...
