I climbed to the top of Condor Peak last night and took this photograph of Corning. The city seems much larger from this vantage point. Click to enlarge.

Warm Weather! The temperature is forecast to be 79° through the weekend and cool to 72° on Monday! This will be wonderful grilling weather!

Laura is in Saint Elizabeth Hospital in Red Bluff. She was suffering from anemia and required a blood transfusion. I took her to the hospital yesterday—following an examination by her doctor in Chico. She has a private room with LCD TV and says the food is excellent and the care is first class. She had a transfusion yesterday and shall have another today. Hopefully, I shall be able to bring her home this afternoon. The cats miss her a good deal. I, of course, miss her greatly.
