Love how the Laguna looks right now. I am glad that I don’t have a business in the Barlow!

When I moved here in 1977, I had a landlord who grew up on an apple farm at the corner of High School and Occidental roads. He said that as a kid he would fish and boat in the Laguna most of the year. And during the winter there would be thousands of water fowl that would overwinter here!

It is just magnificent, I have been walking to the community center area just watching the Laguna fill up. The ducks geese, herons, and egrets it’s amazingly beautiful.

Thanks for posting the pictures. Looks like I may be pulling up the floor at the Community Center again for the fourth time. No rain for four years and then the deluge.

I would really like to take you to lunch sometime soon. We get to see each other occasionally, but I would enjoy hanging out with you, and I do want to write a column for the paper again. Feel free to text or call me at (707)508-5449.
