Reno and then Gardnerville

Wednesday afternoon found us at Reno Diagnostic, and everything went fine.  We were probably there about 40 minutes or so.  Ken stopped by Carson Toyota to see about a price on tires so we have an appointment next Tuesday to get them on. We had lunch in Sparks at the Great Basin there.  Gotta admit i'm partial to the one that's in Reno.  Can't really say why but I am and I know Ken agrees with me.  Then we headed home and that was that! 

Woke up on Thursday morning and after visiting with our blogging friends, coffee and a little banana bread we got up and got going.  We had set the alarm clock for 0500 but I was up (well awake) at 0330 uhhh..

Ken made a quick run to the dump and stopped at Tru Value for some parts for his skill saw.  Then he was able to put the plug on the saw so now it's all ready to cut the tin for the roof of the outhouse.  

About 0930 we had breakfast and got ready to head for Gardnerville for his surgeon appointment.  That was pretty much our only stop there so we got there about 1330 and headed in.  Turns out the Dr had an emergency surgery so we had to reschedule for next week. Darn..but the good news is they are only about a week out for surgery so it'll happen soon.  When Ken had his check up after the last surgery the same thing happened.  Oh well...
Some color on the ride home..

Earlier in the day the color was so vibrant, but the windshield
was filthy ..so I settled for the ride home..hahah

After that we headed for Carson Valley Inn and had our Linner (lunch/dinner).  The food was awesome as always, and plentiful.  We knew we wouldn't want dinner at all.  

Got home and basically the day was done, but that's to be expected!

This morning, Friday we had made plans to have breakfast at Dini's in town with our neighbors Joe, Stacey, Rylee and Stacey's mom Susan.  Because it's Dini's 84th birthday they are offering 4 of their breakfasts for $2.84 each.  So it was definitely the time to go.  We all had a great breakfast and then came home.  

Ken decided to burn the piles of tumbleweeds we had collected over the last few months. I got the hula hoe out and dug up some more, looks much better out front now.  Ken went with Joe to Silver Springs to return the root tiller Joe had borrowed from his mom several months ago.  I did my thing here and now I'll get ready and run to Scolari's.  Tomorrow we're heading for Carson City for Nevada Day.  There's a parade and all kinds of stuff going on.  So it will be a early morning drive :)

My favorite picture of Grandson Aaron and Buddy..
Buddy passed a couple of years ago, but this picture gets
me every time it pops up..Love..


  1. Good luck with Ken's surgery , hope it can be taken care of sooner than later.

    1. We're hoping recovery is as easy as the last one! Can't believe it's almost November!

  2. I'm sure Ken's surgery will go well, like the last one. You two are certainly keeping on the move!

    1. More so than we want..I marked things going on in November so we could schedule Ken's surgery. Oh my goodness was hard pressed to find a few days in a row that we could do it! Way too busy for being retired! haha..
