Starting 2009 Right

The above image is, La Jolla View, taken in June 2002

Today's song is Never Be Lonely by The New Colony Six, released in 1971.

One of my best friends, Angel Rodriguez, called me on New Year's Day and we spoke for over one hour catching up on our lives. Angel and I met on our first day of high school and have been friends ever since. He and his wife, Linda, are part of the reason Sherry and I became a couple.

As usual with most of the discussions Angel and I have, we reminisce about the old days along with the things that have happened in the time since we last spoke. He told me has been reading many of my pages here about the high school days. I promised him I would write about our time together in Auto Shop and hope to do that in this next week as I gather my thoughts together for the story form it will take.

While my wife, Sherry, was out to the beach yesterday, she stopped to call and tell me she saw a whale and dolphin traveling south in the ocean. She said the whale's spray was visible as it made its way down to Mexico for the winter. Whales and dolphins are marvelous creatures to see and I have witnessed them in their annual journey a few times in my years here in San Diego.

I was talking to my daughter on New Year's Eve by phone. Earlier in the day she had sent out links to many pictures of our grandkids since Christmas. One of the pictures had our granddaughter spontaneously sitting in a chair by the computer and saying, "I'm being Grampie!" I laughed for at least five minutes for that one. When I mentioned that to my daughter she told me everyone present when that picture was taken laughed about the same amount of time. They know me so well. ;-)


For those of you on my mailing list, please remember to update my email address to this new one,

My brother-in-law, Bob, sent me a video that explains how the new math is the root of California's financial problem. I knew there had to be an explantion for government spending and tax policies someplace.
