Chelle P at Fickle and Whim mentioned (a long time ago) how she likes to see pictures of where fellow bloggers live. When she reads their posts she can imagine where they are. So here's a few photos of where I work.
This is the view from the narrow road on the way to my job. It's typical of the dry California meadows and oak trees at the end of summer. We frequently see deer, rabbits, heron, squirrels and quail on this road. Infrequently we have bobcat sightings and once in a great while a warning that there are mountain lions in the area.
This is the entrance to the building which was built in the early 50's. It's a think tank where thinkers come to think. How's that for a description? They're here for an academic year and this last Sunday was our opening reception for the current crop of fellows.
The incredible view from our hill.
Opening reception goodies
More goodies. The rest of my food pics didn't come out well so you'll have to imagine plates and plates of food as well as a "drink" table loaded with bottles of wine, soft drinks and water.
The real reason we work here....Charley the office cat hanging out in my in basket.
I was lucky to find this part time receptionist job after I retired from Pacific Bell. Academics come from all over the world to this special place. I've been star-struck over more than a few of them. I continue to think it's a magical place to hang out for 4 hours a day.
The road home....
