San Gorgonio with Emily

I go to the top of Mt. San Gorgonio every year. This year Emily decided to join me. She had never been backpacking in her life. The last time I went camping with her as I remember was when see was about 6 years old. That is about 20 years ago.

We got everything […]

Route 395 - A Place to Drive

This weekend was the 2015 Show and Go. Tradition is to walk from home a couple of blocks to to where the Show and Go is every year. We then walk to Carl’s, which is on the route, for lunch. Today the choice was Clark’s Nutrition for and ice cream sandwich. I just thought I […]

Hole in the Head

Today I had the pleasure of taking a trip to the dermatologist to remove a tumor from my nose. It took a couple of attempts to get all of the invading growth. The doctor let me know that they got all of of it. They asked me if I would like to see. I said, […]

Train and Tree

It is beginning to look like Christmas when the tree is up and the train is out.

Today Elizabeth and mom came home from the hospital. I bet Elizabeth thought it was nice to be in my own bed.

A Lot and Adventure

When asked, what is going on? I have to respond, “A lot.” There has been work, both at the job and at home. No time for adventure. January and February both slipped away without a good hike. Message to self – “You need to plan an adventure. Life is to short without adventure.”

Happy New Year!

May you all have a great 2012.

Homework and Reading

At Starbucks with Jacob tonight. He is doing homework and I am study for my General Class License for HAM radio.

Let the exercise begin

Went for a walk tonight. I got a couple of blocks and decided that walking would not burn enough calories and it would take to long to get any real exercise. Started running. Once I started running I never stopped until I got back to the house. The total trip was 2.2 miles in 23 […]

Bad Hair Day?

Today as I was shooting the pellet gun during lunch, I determined that hair was getting into my eyes. I needed to find a solution. I had picked up some new shades. I thought that perhaps they could work with the hair for a new look. Even with the shades, hair was getting into my […]
