Things I Learned (and did) on Wednesday

1.  I learned that if you get up early (6:15 a.m.) and work hard for a couple of hours in the sewing room, you can accomplish something.  However, Judy and Ann, the jacket doesn't fit - too big!
2.  I learned that the world is a very beautiful place this fall, and that we live in a beautiful place. We took a trip to a ranch about 8 miles southeast of Soda Springs to take an old rocking chair back to Ron's former sister-in-law.  The trip was well worth it, because fall is in all of its glory.

Next, we stopped in Soda Springs at the Geyser Hotel to have some lunch.  There, we saw the geyser (man made), as well as some of the sights in the hotel.  This hotel has been reclaimed, and is very beautifully done.  The rooms upstairs are furnished in old-fashioned ways.  However, I also took some pictures of some of the stuffed animals that are in the lobby of the hotel.  Here are a few of them.
Oho, now I've learned something new.  There is no way to add these pictures without replicating the above pictures.  If you know how to do this, please tell me.
Next thing I learned today is that coming home after a round trip of about 100 miles is very nice.  
More to add to this later.

Reminds me of Northfork.

These photos are absolutely gorgeous. Worth enlarging and framing. Some of your flower headers lately have been really great. How come you never stay home like the rest of us?

This is the first time in three years that we have been in the direction of Soda Springs. We do stay home - real homebodies. Living longer does that to a person, drat it.

P.S. to that comment - Thank you, Dwight, for the comments about the photography. It amazes me what good pictures can be taken from a moving car! Only a few of these pictures were taken outside of the vehicle. And, taking pictures at this time of the year is a real winner - the surroundings are so beautiful.
