The whole tract was richly dotted with grand old oaks, and formed an elegant suburban estate.Read more "The Spirit of the Argonauts"
Here it is, rising over the neighbor’s house. Our patio lights look a lot brighter in this picture than in real life. Look how red the maple tree is getting to be. Needs to get a little taller, as well. This was some week, I am about to tell you. The Resident Expert is going […]Read more "The Hunter’s Moon"
The Harvest Moon, as seen from the street in front of the house. My big plan was to drive up the hill to get a good view of the rising moon over the Bay, but I got totally lost, and there were all these commuter types trying to get home, and the setting sun was […]Read more "Shine on"
The local news tells us that our city’s police chief has resigned. He mailed in his resignation, effective immediately, five days before he was supposed to return from a ‘lengthy vacation’. Who among us has not considered doing the same, as a vacation comes to its end? Mellowcat has a vacation coming up in a […]Read more "what a way to go"

They were at the end of a day of sailing, apparently as skippers of a sailboat on the […]Read more "the gate"
After traveling around the state last week, I would say that we’ve settled down in the right location. The crickets have arrived. I heard them during my evening run at Edgewood. And there are a zillion frogs along Cordilleras Creek. From up high on the Edgewood Trails I could see a sailboat class in progress […]Read more "this must be the place"
The Hetch Hetchy pipeline replacement project is underway, and making its way through the neighborhood. I took a few pictures.Read more "coming through"
That’s what I intend to do, and I encourage you to do the same. On the agenda this weekend: a visit to the barbershop, a test run at the cross-country course, finish up with the sprinks project in the backyard, and give the resident megafauna a dose of the Advantage. And in case that’s not […]Read more "have a great weekend"
