How do you like your coffee? I like it hot, but I sip it until it’s gone even if it cools off.

CMMC Prescott Downtown Series #3
In addition to wandering around downtown by myself with no agenda other than to take some pictures, I wandered into some neighborhoods as well as some historic buildings. The neighborhood of tiny houses was one block from the large historic homes. Downtown is a mish-mash and thoroughly enjoyable.
My stars are special people to me. Both Ernie Garcias, the one on the left is the son, and he just had his first grandbaby, making Ernie on the right a great-grandfather. The second Ernie is my real star. He was a fixture in Woodlake until he moved to Vegas to be with his sons. Then this son moved to Prescott Valley two months ago, and out of the blue, I get a message to meet them.
I have known Ernie, Sr. since I started teaching in Woodlake 32 years ago. He was the head custodian where I taught. He and younger Ernie helped me fact-check my book, Images of America Woodlake. He is an unbelievable 95 years old, a WWII vet, and was very active in Veteran’s affairs, even being on television one time as a featured veteran who traveled to Washington DC. That makes him a star in my book.
Lens Artist Challenge #195 Downtown Prescott Series #3 Continued
I’m super late, but what a great challenge. Thanks to Anne Sandler who hosted last week.
The overwhelming color in Prescott is brown or tan because of the Granite Dells and the fact that we live in the high desert. So many buildings are built with stone as you will see in examples in posts to come.
I did not take the time to go inside because I like to visit museums with someone rather than by myself. I can hardly wait to see the inside because the outside is so unique and beautiful. I love the lines of the building and the variety of colors in the rocks.
On my Health Front
Since we’re still sipping our coffee, I have to share my great news!
I had my umpteenth and LAST surgery on my DVT leg yesterday. I found out that they had removed my filter the month before. Thus explaining the huge hole in my neck. That milestone has significance because now I can quit taking blood thinners. I’m always a bit off for a day or two after surgery, so I rested and read blogs all day today after sleeping most of yesterday. I’ll be raring to go tomorrow and BEYOND!
So thanks to the wonderful doctors and their staff who cared for and about me for months through this ordeal. Thank you for your prayers and kind words on my blog. I feel like the bionic woman! 🙂
