For years and years it has been my tradition to throw a party once a year. Usually it's festivus at my clubhouse. Unfortunately, COVID-19 seems to have wiped that off the calendar. Also my girlfriend died of cancer, which was also deflating. This memorial ride could turn out to be my party for the year. It's all about having a safe meaningful rememberance of a very special woman. Please join us! Click above for more information.
April 21, 2020: Such a moment. My whole idea about "drug wars" got completely turned around at 4:20 PM on 4/20 of 4/20. At that time good quality petroleum was cheaper than free. As in they would give you $25/bbl for taking delivery in May at some terminal. The public oil equivalent of your wallet getting fatter when you stop buying cigarettes every day because you quit smoking tobacco. Such an amazingly well timed one of a kind moment!
May 14, 2020: Sad to see the USA's national debt go up a trillion dollars in a month. I remember when it took decades or more to change that much.
June 15, 2020: Sad to see the USA's national debt go up a trillion dollars in a month. Feel like one of the few that's not driving it up. Sad about that. Shelter in place is keeping me from doing a lot of things I used to take pictures of. Still tending my garden though.
March 27th, 2020: They were replacing the Wells Fargo driveway with more sidewalk when I was walking that way to see Virginia in the hospital. Didn't take a picture then, but this is how it turned out!
404, 2020: The grape vine I planted while Virginia was in the hospital is growing!
March 2, 2020: Thinking about the primary ballot right now. For President Sedinam Moyowasifza-Curry. Yeah, she is amazingly good at turning the slightest insult into a race issue, but she means well and puts in honest effort. The other names on that list mean nothing to me. For County Council: Everybody but Nassim. Don't ask me why. Congresscritter: Rishi Kumar. State Senator: Sally J. Lieber. State Assembly: Kennita Watson. 13: NO! D: NO! G: NO! H: yes. T: NO!
So much is going on in the garden right now!

May 26th, 2020: The coin was part of my change from Freedom Burrito when I got a Colorado burrito. The Old School lighter was a gift from Eric at the junction of Summit and Old Santa Cruz Highway. Old Santa Cruz Highway was an endless two lane road that went up and up. Summit runs the length of the summit of the mountain range that separates Santa Cruz from the bowl I live in. Truly it was the highest I had been since going up Mt. Hamilton with Virginia.

of the time.)
