Just indulge me... I'm feeling homesick

My dear friend Farmlady, over at Over Good Ground had a wonderful blog post a few days back... ( I missed it, until she brought it to my attention this afternoon) and after reading it and reveling in the photos, I've been so homesick that I could almost cry.
To think of Farmlady travelling the same roads that I long to travel again, and for her to see the sights that I ache to see again... well, it makes my heart glad.
Because I know without a doubt, that she understands just how much I miss "home"...
Because she lives there.

New Melones Lake

Natural Bridges - upper cavern

Main Street - Hwy 49, Angels Camp

Fourth Crossing

California Mule Deer

Angels Theater - the only show in town!

Mountain Misery - Ahhh, the fragrance!

Getting ready for the Calaveras Frog Jump - the street is decorated like this every year.

New Melones Lake

California Blue Jay

On Wednesday nights, Mike's has the best "all-you-can-eat pizza!

Melones at sundown

Band rotunda, Murphys Park

Decorations onHwy 49, just before the Calaveras County Frog Jump

Natural Bridges... a few miles out of town, and an absolutely wonderful place to swim!

Murphys... just down the road from where I'm moving to.
This is "Home"....

It will be good to get home, won't it? Do you have a time table firmed up, or is it all dependent upon selling out of Oz?

I'm so sorry that I made you cry. I just wanted to tell you (and show you) how wonderful this place is that we live in and how much I want you to be home again.
Your photos were just wonderful. They epitomize the beauty and history of this area.
It won't be long and you will be smelling the "mountain misery" again, sweetie. It's going to happen.

It will happen, it will. The hard thing is accepting His time over ours.
For some reason, I was thinking you were more in northern California. Not the Angels Camp area. Oh well, wherever it is, it will be good to be home:) Keep on keeping on and on and on and.................
