A client emailed yesterday to say she realized I am on a mini vacation but she needed to immediately know an answer. Although her escrow is a short sale -- and we just opened escrow, which means we won't get approval on this particular transaction for 3 months because it's a double Wells Fargo short sale -- she needed to know if she was allowed to take her refrigerator. My husband thought I should call her at 4 AM. But that's why I am a Sacramento real estate agent and he is not. Some of us are born to help others. Like my friend, Lady Jake, in this photo above. She made this guy a quickie belt to keep his pants up. It's made from balloons tied together.
Nancy Jean, the fiddleplayer, came from Costa Rica for this event. We've got Boom-Boom Micky D on the left, Rudy himself at the mike, John Davenport from Oregon on the right and Jerry Deall, far right, on harmonica. The Rudy Toots haven't played together for probably 20 years, but they were a popular local band in the 1970s. It was a special deal that they reunited for the Nederland 2012 Reunion. Many eyes throughout the crowd at the Millsite were wet.
See, this is why I like taking photos of houses. They cooperate. They just stand there looking at you, smiling, waiting patiently for you to shoot a picture of them. Unlike these people. Here is Gina Guercio Colbum seated on the left, unknown Caribou Ranch guy who just recorded his second album holding a fork, and I do not know the woman with the courage to wear white shorts. Oh, yes, Lisa Adams from up near Virginia City.
Hard to say how many people showed up for the 2012 Nederland Reunion at the Millsite. I'd guess 200. Up until yesterday, I had always thought I had lived in Nederland from 1974 to 1976, but when I recalled The Nederland Alcoholic Test, which was recorded in the Boulder County Public Records on April 1, 1976 for Friends for a Better Environment, which was namely me, Lady Jake and Larry Lyle, I realized that I moved to Nederland just before Valentine's Day in 1975. I left in the spring of 1977. You can still get a copy of the partnership agreement Friends for a Better Environment, followed by the Nederland Alcoholic Test, from the Public Records. That will explain a great deal about Nederland in 1975.
