After landing in Reno (on the 4th), we were able to take Sunday day to run around town like chickens with no heads, (the 5th)! Monday (the 6th), was "D-day" (departure-day) for Rebecca. She boarded an aircraft which took her to San Francisco then to Frankfurt, Germany. Our oldest son, US Army Capt David Bock was getting his first command, Signal Company. Rebecca wanted to be there for the change of command ceremony. We also saw it as an opportunity for Rebecca to get some badly needed rest and recuperation (R&R) from the duties in Eugene. After putting her on the plane at Reno International, Dave got busy with repairs & maintaintence on the house. The house is in a north valley of the Reno area. One of the things we used to enjoy the most was sitting on the top deck enjoying the view down the valley, over the top of Reno's lights to the far peaks of the Sierras. One can see about 80 miles down the range from the top deck! ! !
Staining and finishing the deck has always been a 2 day project, it's all hand work with rollers and sponge-brushes. Son Kent came over to work on the yard, trimming trees, pulling weeds and clean-straighten up. Most of the work was done in 3 days, now Dave can relax alittle more.
Oh, forgot to mention Rebecca returns to her love on April 20th
