http://youtu.be/oRCoDOlC_KE Off the top left about 7-10 seconds in, there is something that leaps up out of the water - this is most likely a gray whale as that is what we usually have cruising along our coast line though I thought this was rather late in the season (clearly I could be wrong about...

May 26th – My writing writing writing motivation
But first.... The *plan* today was to lounge as usual during Uppers, then run on the 56 trail avoiding the extreme hills for a change, then shower, then start writing, then eventually head over E & R's place for afternoon working and dinner. That latter bit didn't quite happen, but I did have a really... Continue Reading →
May 25th – Losing Steam
Uh oh - I guess I should be impressed that I maintained my motivation to write in here every day for this long! I was literally in bed before I remembered tonight. Can you blame me? It's Friday.

May 22 – Beauty in many forms

Over and over the Song Sparrows in the neighborhood were singin' about the day getting started (and, I am sure, yapping about this crazy human huffin' & puffin' as she jogged past them!) Here's what they look like... Continue Reading →
The best Valentines Day compliment ever!
I know, I know, you are dying to know how the 5k went after all that build up. So, to dispense with that - Alex finished in 22:40, I finished in 33:16 - we both thought the last hill was hell - however, I actually kept running (albeit more slowly) up the whole thing whereas is... Continue Reading →
This Labor Day weekend has turned into Garage Sale weekend for me. And it has provided some truly unexpected highlights. The somewhat expected was selling *some* items. I knew it wouldn't all sell, but I figured some small things would attract folks and you just never know what will catch someone's eye. My somewhat joking... Continue Reading →
Race ya to the pot o’ gold!
Tuesday morning I opened my garage door and saw this: My drive in to work then unfolded like this as that ominous dark cloud started spitting out the water it held: It kinda looked like we were going to head right for the base of the rainbow, right? It was a few days past St... Continue Reading →
