Herb, the MAN and Yvonne

Herb Huseland stepped up to the plate again last week and drove Yvonne over to Seattle for medical care. He thought that they would be able to leave as soon as the plate was removed from Yvonne's wound and she was well enough to travel. Alas that was not the case. Herb has been fighting bureaucracy over in the Seattle area with both Yvonne and himself being held hostage until the respective entities could figure out how to provide care for Yvonne.
Herb was quickly running out of money and patience. I tried to enlist some assistance Wednesday night but that did not materialize. This afternoon I located some postings from Nan to Herb on his blogspot and I contacted Nan. Her response was:

"I made lots more calls for Herb yesterday and Yvonne is checking into Life Care in CdA for a few weeks so she can have her antibiotics administered by a skilled nursing facility. She should be there in a few hours. Herb is a saint...but he was really getting fed up with all of the BS he was being fed. Cannot blame him ! Anyhow they were on their way home at 1:30 when I talked to him."

You can follow his experience on his blog

I am sure we will hear more from him but I wanted to thank Nan for helping in this very difficult situation.

Say what you will but I truly admire Herb for taking the time to help this lady again.

Thursday Morning Fire

As I was getting ready for work this morning I heard a siren, seemed to stop shortly after pulling into town.  As I drove out of Bayview I was passed by many fire vehicles.

When I returned home this evening I received the news that a local family had had the fire which devastated their home.

Two email messages from others in town ....

A collection has been started for the Clanton family,

"To send a donation to the Clanton's, you can send it to the "Bayview Community Center Foundation" PO Box 493, Bayview, ID 83803. Please indicate that it is for the Clanton's."

Once again those of in Bayview will rally support for the family tragedy.

"Bayview Cafe??"

Bayview Cafe?

We visited The Bay Cafe' this morning and we have to say that Jay did a fabulous job with our breakfast.
Stephanie was the server and Henry was back in the kitchen supervising.

Neither Dean nor myself had any doubts about Jay's talents. Going there will be worth the trip.

Around the Town of Bayview

As many know by now Dean decided that he did not need to work anymore. He has officially put in for his retirement and we await the first check from Social Security. There comes a time in every one's life when it is necessary to decide whether putting up with other's baloney is really needed. We decided that it was time to move on and expand our horizon's. Or maybe just stay home at least for now.

Dean has been busy finishing projects around the house that neither of us could find the time to complete. He is planning a yard sale for Labor Day weekend. Treasures are available for all. We are selling our German Schrank that we have been carting around for decades. You might want to swing by the house and see if there is anything you would like to purchase. 34417 N Robin Lane, right across from the Community Center

I attended the latest Bayview Chamber of Commerce meeting. The main topic of discussion was the street lights that the Chamber is paying for here in Bayview.  No conclusion has been decided. On the next agenda will be the topic of Bayview Daze. Some feel the event should be moved to another month, as for me I believe the tradition has been established for the July 4th weekend. I feel strongly that we should continue with the tradition. Sentiments that I had voiced at a previous meeting surfaced this last meeting, the July 4th celebration is really not about personalities but instead a celebration of our freedom and recognition of those who fought for our right to express our opinions.  I will say this again Bayview needs to pull together, we are a community that was built on enjoying where we live, not a place to argue.

Also the Chamber will be electing three positions this year.  It was decided last year to elect the full board and then hold an election for Vice-President, Treasurer, and Member at Large.
I nominate Vic for Vice President!

As a side the day after Dean left The Wheel, the kitchen manager walked out. He is presently working for the Dean's who are leasing three properties from Scenic Bay Marina, Henry and Cheryl currently are leasing The Patio, The Hook, and now The Bay Cafe. The former kitchen manager from The Wheel is working at the Cafe.
