This morning around 5am I woke up to a bright meteor shooting down the sky. You could see it burning and it was three times as bright as a brilliant Venus. It had a greenish tint. Spectacular!

Getting ready to walk Ginger, it’s 8:30 am and only 57 degrees out and foggy. Nice break from the hot weather. We still have Santa Ana’s to come.
Last weekend we were able to get the concrete shower pan poured at the Guesthouse. We got it done before our concrete bags went bad. On Sunday night, Ed and Linda invited us to Pauma Valley for a nice dinner at the Country Club. We also go a chance to look at a property near the Lazy H that Ed looked at to buy. The house was a little bigger than he wanted or needs, but other things about it were real nice. He still looking and we just hope at some point he buys another place out here.

Everyone is out of the old fire station in Warner Springs. Dennis says the Pala Indians are selling the land it’s on (it used to be part of Warner Springs Ranch) to the Forest Service, and once it closes Escrow, they plan to build a state-of-the-art building. In the meantime, the crew has a house rented in Los Tules, and the trucks are parked across the street at Warner Springs Community Center.

A productive weekend. We continue to set up the infrastructure for our Emergency Power Transfer Switch and Generator. This weekend we got the switch box mounted and pipes for wires in from box to the generator. We took the form off the tractor tent foundation. And we started on the shower pad by the Guesthouse. First we need to build a retaining wall to hold in some rocks and concrete as well as some dirt. Then we will pour the pad on top. Last week we had an thunderstorm with 1.1 inches of rain. We had our concrete covered, but it’s getting pretty hard sometimes and we want to try and use it up next weekend before it goes bad.

Finally, after many delays, Dennis heard today, the Pala Indians (Cupeño) signed the paperwork to close the sale of Warner Springs Ranch. In 30 days they will once again own their ancestral villiage, Cupa.
