It felt great to return to Idaho, after three months away. I stayed one night in Joseph, Oregon, with Emily and Aaron.

I love how McCall has left a view of the lake from downtown.

John and Jill Thompson, McCall residents who we had the pleasure of playing with in McCall- at Trivia Night at the Alpine Pantry.  We didn’t win. 🙂

Jenny headed home in her car, and I left my keys in her car.:)  I realized it an hour after she left, called her and she left my keys at a bar in Whitebird. After the initial, “Oh, @3*&!’, I had a beautiful drive along the Salmon, in John and Jill Thompson’s Mercedes SUV, thank you, to retrieve my keys. 🙂
