First Fire of the Season

First Fire of the Season, Coarsegold Ca,, just off of 415.. We have had lots of rain, but suddenly it is hot and the grasses are drying out fast... Scary, but no houses were involved and everyone safe.. Thanks to our local Fired department, and lots of drops by the wonderful Flying crews.. Because our area is so hilly and inaccessible the best way is to fly retardant and water in...

Thankfully, the lakes and waterways are full of water from the snow melt...

Ronald McDonald House Madera Ca.

Years ago one of my P.E.O. Sisters started saving pop tops off of soda cans, and now soup cans have pop tops also.. Our group added a few each time to her collection and she delivered them periodically to the Orange Co. Children's Hospital..

She was a dear friend that passed on from Cancer. This is my way of continuing the work she started and remembering the good deed she shared. It does not seem like much but you are looking at 3 1/2 lbs of pop tops that have been gathered recently by my Sisters and friends in P.E.O. Madera County.

I save up about 3-5 lbs. and when we go to Fresno, we stop in and give them to Ronald.. As you can see he is just sitting there waiting to comfort the kids and collect pop tops!

These are the summer months, friends visit, and pop tops are around to share.. I put a little pot above my sink and save them there.. Ronald has some cute little houses you can pick up to put your collection in.. Join the fun, save and share some kindness.. ( P.S. you can also collect the empty cans, stop the littering, two good deeds all in one!)
