Family Tree

When we got home from our trip we discovered this new tree painted on out living room wall as a Father’s Day gift.  Artistry by my daughter Krisgo and her daughter Kaitie.  I love it!




OK… It is Hot!

This was the display in our car as we headed back from Simi Valley towards Marina Del Rey.  It actually read 117°F but changed before I could get the camera ready.  This is the highest temperature I’ve ever experienced.  It was 108 a few years ago when I was in Las Vegas. 

 It […]

Welcome to L.A. traffic.



Oh, my aching face…

Over the weekend, I could feel something wrong with one of my teeth when I chewed. It wasn’t real bad but enough to know there was an issue that needed attention. I figured I’d be calling the dentist first thing Monday morning. Well, come Monday it felt much better. Besides, my dentist is off on […]


How I spent my Sunday

We created a brick landing outside our garage entry door in the back yard.  This is the somewhat finished project. Below that are pics of the work in progress. (click to enlarge)  It’s about 44 inches by 9 feet long. The plan is to eventually extend the walkway to our shed in the back […]


Buying concert tickets is nothing but a scam
