Hi-Desert Star Column #218

Our little Community’s first Saturday of the month Breakfast is in full swing this morning, as Neighbors from all over Copper Mountain Mesa and beyond, gather for a delicious Brekkie and a jolly good chinwag! The food is especially good, because Steve and Mary Helen Tuttle go the extra mile for their Community, by getting the sausage, bacon and other supplies from Bruce’s Coyote Kitchen over at Copper Mountain College. We may or may not have an Egg coloring party, depending on how many hard-boiled eggs we can hustle up. Come one, come all and bring eggs!

My cataract surgery last Monday went well and although I wouldn’t say it was “a piece of cake”, it wasn’t nearly as bad as my most fearful imaginings! I would say the worst of it is being in-between surgeries. With much better vision in my newly improved left eye, the lens in my glasses blurs my vision in that eye. However, my right eye still needs the lens in my glasses in order to see. So, the ever-practical Jim Martin, snipped the plastic holding in the left lens thereby removing it and hey presto I can see: sort of! I feel a tad unbalanced and any light is very bright; but that will get better over the while. A big Thank You to Doctor Schultz and Debbie in the Schultz Eye Clinic in Yucca Valley: you guys are awesome, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Tonight, Saturday April 4th 2015, from 6pm: it’s another Wonder Valley Music Festival at The Palms Bar and Restaurant, 83-131 Amboy Road, in beautiful, downtown Wonder Valley.

This show features: The Sibleys; Hunter and the Wick’d; Ben Vaughn Ensemble; French Vanilla; Gwendolyn; Donna Bummer; Arroyo Rogers and others.  Last Semester, I had the privilege of interviewing this Event’s founder and host, Mr Ben Vaughn. A New Jersey transplant and heartfelt Desert lover, Ben is a humble, humorous and intelligent man; a world-class musician, songwriter, performer, radio host and a totally cool dude! Come on down for this great entertainment; no admission charge and free camping. Stay well!
