A shower, allergy pills, and Tylenol did immediately repair him when we got home. Brought the truly recumbent Schwinn upstairs. Rocker to downstairs/ He’s my hero even if he has dissolved into disaster.
G’ette: Very hyperactive, up most of night, and still dramatically reacting to the shot until almost exactly 24 hours. Slowly the first layer began to wear off about mid afternoon. I’m still 50% improved, and 75% on the front tendone. Now by Monday, 2 days, the second level steroid should kick in and begin working. I must admit that it was frightening to have this reaction a second time in my life, (the first with a BP pill), but it was more than delightful to be pain free most all Saturday.
It would take all morning to drive from #20 in Chula Vista to Escondido. We would stop there at an old, adobe roadside restaurant with a patio deeply shaded by pepper trees. After lunch, we would go from Escondido to the East Mission Road exit in Fallbrook, turn left into the deep tree shaded roadbed, and be almost there. Mrs. Duffy’s Ranch Camp for Girls waited just turn left and go down the driveway into freedom.
I’m sure the Ranch Camp was a failure. The buildings were beyond old, the horses tired and slow, the yard pig even tireder, but I flat out loved it. There were some summers I could talk mother into more than two week. Only now I wonder who she borrowed the money from so I could stay that extra week in paradise.
As I let my fingers wander my memories, I found not just US 395, I found links to everyone’s highway memories. There from modern US 80, you can see today pieces of the original cement highway that my Gimpa took to drive across the deserts and mountains into San Diego every year.
These pages are labors of love. Many are not complete created in spare time that we know isn’t really spare. What memories will you find following the links I discovered? Do let me know.
