June 3rd, 2017: Last evening I
took Virginia to Sub-Zero, an arts and crafts fair on South
First St. in San Jose. It was a lot like many such events I'd
been to around here before. Rather than take pictures I just
enjoyed the event for the most part. When I found another
participatory art project I'd squirt another rendition of
"California trumps Trump". works (They spell their name with
all lower case letters for some reason.) had a booth where
everybody was invited to make a button of their own design. I
put the one I made on my camera case strap, where it still was
when photographed just now. Hoping it stays there a while.
February 8ht, 2017: On a
typically not very rainy day I got about three quarter of an
inch of rain. That's good compared to recent years!
January 20, 2017: Yup. We got a
new President. In his inaugural address he promised to
"transfer power from Washington DC to the American people."
Feel empowered yet?
March 20th: I got a zucchini
start at Summer Winds on the way home from Virginia's. Got to
my plot and decided that the tree collard has been there long
enough. Ripped it out. Planted the zucchini start in the spot.
Hoping the next week's forecast rain comes through to water
that and the tomatoes I've recently planted. The soil is happy
but not too moist. Thanks to the rains we have had so far. As
you can see from the speckling along the front edge of the
concrete, it's starting to rain again.
