    Sorry, I'm not going to make it this morning. I woke up feeling that I needed to rest badly as I've been missing out on sleep for a few days. Someone should pick up guacamole! Have fun!

    I'm bringing carne asada to make soft tacos and will have tons of tortillas for other such items, am going to las montanas in the AM before the hike they open at 6:30 am. It's a great market --kind of like a Mexican version of whole foods without the high prices, lots of fabulous already made items along with great fresh produce, meat, and a bakery.......getting hungry already

    My pup ran into a barbed wire fence and needed 6 stales to repair the wounds. She can't run around for 10 days so we won't be able to go.

    Thank-you! I just hope my Mom doesn't cry or gets angry with me since I get to tell her she needs to go to a care facility. I wish I could come by but my Mom can't be left alone and not sure she could handle a picnic.

    April 30

  • Stefanie K.

    Sandy, sorry to hear about your Mom. I know that is very stressful. Look forward to seeing you soon.

    April 29

  • Sandy D.

    Sorry I can't attend. My Mom's mental condition is deteriorating rapidly and I must help my Brother and share in the care taking until we can find a suitable place to provide 24 hour care.

    April 28

    • Jenny B.

      Sorry to hear that Sandy. I hope it works out alright. Stop by if you get a chance.

      April 29

  • Susan

    I can help guard the picnic site since I'll bring Kimchi and my non hiking dog Mochi.
