More about our visit in Redding

After spending one night on the mountain with Randy and his family, we drove back down into the valley to see Jacque, Gil's cousin and Randy's sister. We had a lovely visit with her and ate supper on her farm just outside of town. Jacque has critters she loves, and the kids enjoyed seeing them - horses, goats, a turkey, a peacock, chickens, donkies, pot belly pigs, and llamas. She also has two Persian cats that we enjoyed in the house. Suzanne helped her feed the critters while Gil and Mitch drove back to the camper to set up at the RV repair shop. We had a little wiring problem Gil was unalbe to fix. We need the break lights and signals to be repaired. While we wait for those repairs today, Jacque will show us the sights of Redding.

The picture of the Niemeir clan at Randy's shows their eight grandchildren who live next door. Randy's son Dan had already gone to work, but we gathered Deanna and the children for a pic. They have a house over 5,000 sq. ft. and Deanna home schools the kids....ages 18 - 1. She looks like a high-school student herself. What a lovely family and a beautiful setting to rear them.
