It has been a busy three months. Spent two months in Nevada working at the Nevada Test Site - Device Assembly Facility. My office overlooked the Yucca Flats where they set off the nuclear weapons:
News Nob where they took this photo was just outside my window. The scene nearby today:
I got to tour Sedan crater (worlds largest manmade crater):
"IceCap", the British - American joint test (which the nuclear test ban treaty stopped):
The Apple II test building the Japanese built:
and the 1800's oven:
I got to see the Hoover dam where dad's uncle Frank Weymouth was the chief engineer:
I took an airplane ride and took a picture of the dam from the air:
Justin got tickets for us to go to the NASCAR race there in Las Vegas and also spent time with him and his family:
Breannae and Alyssa
I also go to go out into the desert:
These are Joshua trees in the desert, and huge trees in the mountains:
And ski trails:
I saw one rabbit, two antelope, one coyote and one hawk. Only the rabbit was off the Nevada Test Site (no cameras are allowed onsite unless you have a special need - luckily I ran across the one lady on site who had permission - she took the pictures of me at Sedan, etc.).
To snow and extreme cold in an hour's drive.
Then down to Los Angeles, Hollywood and Beverly Hills visiting with my niece Stephanie:
Then off to Tennessee:
A little bitty (3 1/2 inches long) yellow bird with a big voice!
Two stray dogs I found in Nashville, if I were to be able to stay here at home for a long time, I would have kept them!!
And back to Florida:
Quite a catch from behind my home!!
Beach, kids and sunsets:
I always take my bunny rabbit to the beach to watch the sunset, don't you?
And off on a sail with Carl:
