You can immediately book your 6th stay or do it later when you know you will be back in Fair Play or El Dorado County. For
your 7th through 11th stay if there are 3 or more weekday stays you must redeem your second free stay on a weekday. If your
stays are on a weekend you can redeem your free stay anytime. You now have the ability to book
online. If you book online you must make a note, in the Packages Box on
the reservation form, the stay is a Friend of Lucinda's (FOL).
Some restrictions apply and based on availability.
Below is the WALL of FAME.
When you complete the FOL requirements you too will have your photo
taken at the WALL of FAME and displayed here, on this web page.
& Sue Warren: Mark's mother lives near Coarsegold. They discovered that Coarsegold
is the same place as two other couples staying with us during their last visit. Sue reminded us that they lived accross the
street from the high school we attended. That street did not exist when we went to the school.
Cindy & Chris Teresi joined the Friends of
Lucinda's in short order. Chris plays in the band "Boomers" at Windwalker picnics frequently. Cindy recently took
over their church's music department.
TIDBITS & NITWITS
(This space is for whatever Daryl needs to ponder about.)
Minnie Pearl used to say that Tennessee Ernie Ford would compliment her about her looks.
She stated, "Ernie would always tell me I look like a breath of first fresh air of spring.
Well, actually he'd say, Minnie you look like the last gasp of the end of a long, hard winter." Minnie Pearl was the comedian who wore the calico dresses and the flat rimmed straw hat with
a price tag hanging in her face. Ernie was the baritone who had a TV show and sang the song "Sixteen Tons".
If you remember both these people then we are close to the same age. We saw these people on the 9" screen in the 4'X8'
box called a TV. I mention ththis only because I read a biog on the blog page named "Older not Dead Yet" about traveling
to the other California wine regions.
Yes there are several wine regions in Northern California away from the area just north
of SF. Our little corner of the world, the Fair Play AVA - Wine region, is noted for the great Zinfandels. We have enjoyed
the ever increasing number of wineries since we opend almost nine years ago. The really cool thing about being in Fair Play
and the hospitality business is meeting all the great people. At Iverson winery one Sunday recently there was "our Log
Cabin" builder friend. After chatting with one of the winery visitors for a while he mentioned where he was from and
the winery visitor said he worked at so and so for nine years a few years ago. The builder said his sister worked there for
30 years and asked if he knew her. YES! he replied. the builder called his sister on the spot and the visitor and her talked
for about 15 minutes reminiscing.
Small world. Or is
it that the more seasoned citizens we become we just naturally run across more people and therefore more people we will
probably have something in common with? No! It's just a sign of reflecting about what bridges I've crossed
and what bridges are yet to come.
has produced lots of media coverage and little impact to what Government does. In fact, it will have no impact if both the
President's and Ryan's budget proposals are melded into one comprehensive plan. (It will never happen, but if it did the results
will have billions more in cuts than the sequester.) Here's the real sniveling in Washington. If the sequester were actually
implemented the real cuts for all the programs listed would be less then 1% of any budget in the last 10 years. We The People
are not stupid. We know the games "They" are playing. Quit sinveling and govern, you Nitwits.
I say quit being NITWITTS
and do your job, Washington. Get on with governing instead of posturing for the mid-term elections.
Coming from Sparks, NV Mike & Kensi Kivett have made their journey
very pleasurable for us. We enjoy their smiling faces and friendly presence. A real positive attitude spreads to all when
they are in the Great Room.
Dean & Diana Simeroth live in Woodland, CA, so their travel isn't too far. Dean & Lucinda worked
for the same State Dept. before she started the B&B.
Keith & Lupita Frsolie have made their first trip here together. Keith told us a couple years ago he fell
in love with a beaiutful Mexican lady. Last August they were married. Now we know why he fell head over heels for Lupita.
She is as beautiful inside as she is outside.
Karla Penman have been coming to visit us since November 2005. There first stay was an adventure for all. When you & they
are here ask Karla about the tale of how they found Lucinda's.
