|More news and photos from the East coast thanks to
cousin Kathleen Dooley. As usual, the pictures show the leisurely life style that the
McCoombs enjoy. It is kind of hard for working stiffs like me to fathom, their vacations
on the Cape, Florida, Block Island, etc.

|Of course, that is why there are "chiefs and indians",
"Kings and subjects" and "rich and poor". Alas, we here on the West coast usually fall into
the latter. Seriously though, it does look like your having a great summer! Please click

|Take a look at this sad, disheveled, out of shape fool! On the weekend of the 22nd,
we had a memorial for Uncle Don at their Lake Tahoe community club house. Kathy and I stayed
on the other side of the mountain, in Carson Valley at the Carson Valley Inn RV park. At the
age of 21, I had lived in the Tahoe Valley region and had rode up and down all of the mountain
passes as if training for the Tour de France. So with fond memories I took off around
9:00 a.m. Saturday morning. It is relatively flat the first 6 miles to the base of the grade, so
even though the mountain loomed ever larger ahead of me, I felt quite confident.
