Word Fun

A thief broke his leg and fell in some wet cement. He became a hardened criminal.
The dead batteries were given out, free of charge.
If you go running with your laptop, you're jogging your memory.
A bicycle can't stand alone; it's two tired.
Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
If you don't pay your exorcist, you can get repossessed.
Show me a piano falling down a mine shaft and I'll show you A-flat miner.
Local Area Network in Australia: The LAN Down Under.
A calendar's days are numbered.
Santa's helpers are subordinate Clauses.

Time To Shop!

I started out early with my shopping career. I think I am now leaning more away from the amateur shopper and more to being a professional shopper. This is where I bought my Ganesh.

We finished all of our tasks Sunday like wash both vehicles, go to Costco, the grocery store, put the red rug out and fix a lamp just in time to scamper off to Shelter Island to catch the Star of India returning home just before sunset.

                     Homeland Security is also waiting and the Star is on the horizon
                                                                 She is getting closer

Star of India Sails

The Star of India, the oldest iron hull sailing ship, turns 150 years old on 11/14/2013 so she is being let out to sail this weekend. We went up to the top of Point Loma to watch and take pictures. We had fun.

Dinner Out

We decided to try a recently renovated restaurant in town, Tom Hams. It is located at the tip end of one of the man made islands in the bay.

                                       This was the view we had from our window seat.

                                                               My dinner as it arrived

Ten Years Later

Fast forward ten years and this is what you get. A 1964 Stingray with a 427 cid V8 with a 4 speed transmission. My insurance can't afford it.

Auto Museum New Show

A new show opened at the auto museum. We have Corvettes. This one is a 1954 and is really nice.

Rain Test

A few years ago the condo association paid a company to smear on slurry on the asphalt. They over-smeared in front of our garage door and made the outside almost two inches higher than the concrete garage floor. We got wet. Last week a new company came along replaced the asphalt. Tonight we are supposed to get one inch of rain. The outside appears lower or at least level with the inside. May the force be with us.

We went to Mikey's funeral today. He and his wife have been extended family since the 1970's. I took this photo of him on the moving walkway between museums in DC last October. Adios Kemosabe.

Sunday Road Trip

We just had to get away from the house and out into the world today. We went a maybe 15 miles north and visited Torrey Pines State Park. Cameras in hand, of course.

We haven't been on a road trip for a while. I have been going through vacation photos and here is one from Hearst Castle. The path to OD may very well look like this all too soon.
