time has come to fess up and tell the truth! I’m not a good liar, so maybe you
have already figured it out. Here are my facts and the fib revealed!
I’m the daughter of a history/social studies teacher. Every summer we traveled
around the U.S. However, we only made it to 41 states by the time I was 17. So
this is the FIB!
boyfriend, his brother and I decided to take a short cut while hiking with a
group. When we did not end up where we thought we would, we began to follow a
creek descending in elevation. It was NOT a good idea. Our hike included a lot
of “bouldering” or climbing over HUGE boulders. Nightfall arrived and found us
on the shore of a lake. Something scary sounding growled in the middle of the
night as we huddled on a rock outcropping. The next morning, we flagged down a
boater who ferried us to the other side. Next thing I knew, we were whisked
into a California Highway Patrol (CHP) helicopter. My friends were concerned
about who would pay the bill. I was too exhausted to care. And no, we did not have to pay anything-which is a good thing since I had nothing to pay with!
For two summers, I worked at Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch, a “dude” ranch near my hometown in Plumas County,
California. Cary Grant was part-owner. We knew he was coming for a particular
week and brought his wife Barbara and his daughter Jennifer. He was VERY nice
and I found him to be quite soft-spoken. I made “points” with him one day, when
he asked me to
find him a radio so he could listen to the Dodgers game. I also remember when his
daughter tried chewing tobacco. She ran and hid in my office hoping to escape
discovery. Such memories!
