Day started an hour early. My Alarm Clock was on Central Time, went off at 5:00AM. Went back to bed and told Alexa to set alarm for 7:00AM, she was also on Central Time.
Got up when Alexa called me. Made coffee, got dressed and walked Joy. Put Tow Bar on Equinox

Made the bed. Pulled in the slide and raised the jacks.
Drove down to entrance parking lot where Cathy had the Equinox. Hooked up.
Cathy pointed to some heavy equipment and said it was a Joy approved brand.

Crossed to west side and right into 43 Ranch California Olive Oil Mill. Got there st 3:30PM
Went in. Gregg was finishing a tour, but they hadn’t done the tasting. He said bring Cathy in and we could start with tasting. Their dog Rex was on the floor, but only rolled his eyes at me.
We tasted 4 olive oils, Pecual, Helen’s Blend, Italian Blend and Lemon Infused.
They are the only North American Olive Oil producer to win an International 1st Place.
Gregg’s wife Cindy came and we purchased some olive oil and some soap.
Gregg put a power line out so we could plug in.
Gregg and Cindy’s son Grant gave us the tour. He runs the equipment which is all Italian.

He fid a very good job explaining and answering questions.
