Since I don’t usually get to be around for many special days in my family, I wanted to be here this year for my Mom’s birthday. So early Friday morning I loaded up the trusty Buick Regal for the long drive back from Sacramento to Portland. It took 12 hours this time because I stopped to enjoy some of the sights along the way.
That’s Fred, as I’ve named the Buick, along the side of 1-5. Now here’s the reason I stopped and parked:
In Yreka I had to stop because it was starting to snow hard and I realized I had to replace my windshield wipers. Now I can proudly say I have changed my own windshield wipers! There was some wildlife along the way, too.
