Initial Findings

 Lolli and I have returned home to Fort Bragg after taking care of Lolli's mother, Margaret, in Shoreline,Seattle.  Either Lolli or I have been with Margaret for the pass three and a half years, the final three months with Hospice Care.  Margaret passed away March 24th, at home, after a long decline.  She was 96 years old.

So, now I'm back and for the first time in a long time, I set off on my early morning walk to see "whatz sup" with Fort Bragg.  The first thing I noticed was one of the Hawthorne trees along Franklin Street has started to bloom.  In fact, I understand this bloom arrived right around April 1st.  Quite nice!!

 I see the skateboard park is finished.

 Another view of the skateboard park with the V. Starr Center in the background.  I did stop in the V.Starr Center for a sad but hopeful look at the closed and covered lap pool.  Well done, Fort Bragg for voting to get the pools operating again.

Swinging through Otis Johnson Park I see the old steps are being replaced and it looks like this project is almost finished.

By the way, did anybody notice last night's full moon.  Startled me!!  So, unexpected and boom, there it was!


  1. My sympathies to you both.

    It's good to see you back in Ft Bragg, Ron.

  2. Welcome back Ron and Lolli!

  3. I am happy to read about Fort Bragg again !! Is there an obituary somewhere for Margaret, I would like to know about her life.

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss, and glad to see you back.
