The Eggert Visit

Miss Cindy Eggert, way back in 1990-something, traveling in Egypt,
 where the local men would propose to her on a daily basis.
We had so much fun with Dean and Cindy Johnson's whirlwind visit this past weekend that we failed to take a decent photo of us all together, despite all their fancy camera equipment, too. Bugger! So instead, as Cindy and I have been good friends since 1989, when we were in our young-20s, I thought she (and our close associates) might get a kick out of this photo of her at the Great Pyramids outside of Cairo, from 1992? 1993? '95? Help me out, Cindy! Or Mike?!?

That's Dean controlling the video drone, which you can barely see in the distant center,
and Cindy monitoring what it was filming.

The only photo I took of Cindy and Dean while they were here was one of them working their drone. I've been having fun showing off their super-cool footage of our little cabin here. Nothing but rave reviews, guys!! (Though everyone asks if Lili is our dog.) I see serious business potential.

Our weekend together involved a lot of food and brews, some cards and hikes, and simply not enough time. But we take what we can get. Especially from crazy people who drive 14 hours straight to come see us.

We debuted our new waffle maker for our guests,
complete with honey/cinnamon fruit and fresh whipping cream.
As for mountain life, we cracked open another watermelon from our garden while the Johnsons were here. Gorgeous, and sweet as hell! The watermelon, too.

Pretty damn delicious, it was.
Looks like Mom might be our next visitor, at Christmastime. But if any of you have a hankering for fall color and bonfires, the best color seems to be about the last two weeks of October. The guest room is free!! Call now and make your reservations!!


  1. Thanks for the awesome hospitality. We will be back, sooner than later!

  2. I believe that was 1990 if my walking cast memories are accurate. And I also attest to the fact that Egg was gawked at non-stop by the Egyptians.
