Sometimes other people's wit catches us by surprise. My son and I have been walking along the Sacramento River now and again, and this grafitti never fails to amuse me. Love is Free. ...So is poop. All the more relevant as there are homeless encampements and lots of dogs in the area. Love and Poop.... Continue Reading →
Today was a foggy day. At about 1030 AM or so, the spouse and I went for a walk break. It was still foggy and the air was tinged with whiteness, as it often is just before snow falls. Only we don’t get snow here by the rivers. Rarely, anyway. The last time I think... Continue Reading →
A tree in Sacramento This tree struck me with its strange appearance. Is it dead, but just still standing? Or is there anything still living? Am I simply thinking too much? I wish this tree was more vibrant.
It's freezing outside. I took a photo of the frozen grass but not quite sure I was able to convey the iciness of it. I mentioned I need to get back to running.

It's Monday in the Valley and there's freeze warning until 9 AM. My cell phone tells me it's 34 degrees outside. This wouldn't be a big deal except that a week or so ago we were in the 80s. I guess California winter has arrived. Which brings me to my #gratitude for the morning. #Thankful... Continue Reading →
