  1. Because of my knees I am unable to do much walking at all, but with two of my friends who are avid hikers, I drive them to different areas of Southern California around where we live and drop them off and then sit and read my book and talk with others who may amble by. When they show back up, hours later, we go someplace for a meal and I drop them off at home. We get together at other times as well. We are all former US Navy men, one slightly younger and one about 10 years older than I and all Vietnam Veterans... I don't feel left out, because they are doing what they like and I am doing what I like...
  2. some rotten person abandoned a beautiful Ferret behind City Hall where I live... The news paper said that it was illegal to own a Ferret in California, but I've know a number of people who have, including my son...
  3. Had a vivid dream the other night that lead into my waking time... I was crawling across a a bridge consisting of 2" wood slats between two ropes over a water course. I was crawling along to the other side and people were shooting at me with rifles and I had no cover...
  4. It snowed a few days ago in the late evening, but it didn't stick for very long... Right now it is blowing a hard, cold wind!!!
  5. Wishing that I had a dog, but my landlord said NO dogs and especially NO cats...
  6. Today was a good day. I got to talk with the new Librarian. Kevin seems to have some good ideas for the Library improvement. Attended a Historical Society meeting and while not called upon to ask the Mayor a question, I got together with him a little after the meeting...

  10. After I saw the breed name of this year's Valentine Dragon, for some reason it made me think of the noted Japanese-German Playwright, Critic and Poet Sadakichi Hartmann, 1867-1944.. I don't even know why???

  12. I was just friends with Mordred...
  13. Like I do every year... My Daughter was a Girl Scout and when ever they start selling the GS cookies, I go to one of the little stands and just give them $10 and tell them that the next person that comes up to buy some cookies, to give them 2 free boxes, my reat and then walk away. I make sure that I say this in front of all the adults and girls so they all know what is supposed to be done with the money. At another set-up yesterday, I gave them a box of peanut butter/Ritz crackers to snack on since they couldn't snack on their cookies. I felt bad for them standing out in the cold rain with so little activity/buyers... At least they were under a roof...

  17. Hahaha! I was looking at a map of the area where I lived as a child from about 1954-59 and was earmarking the houses of the other kids who lived around the neighborhood... I even marked the house where some guys and gals that I knew were playing and someone came up with the idea of playing "Spin-the Bottle"... This was where I got ny first (non-family) kiss... a few of them in fact. I was12 at the time...

  21. When in Vietnam, my ship was anchored in the Co Chien River in the Delta and while walking around the deck at night on 'Swimmer Watch', I had a rifle and a grenade. When I decided to throw the grenade (it was the first one that I'd ever thrown), I didn't THROW it, just kinda tossed ot away... It went off close to my ship, just out from an 'Outboard discharge opening' in the hull of the ship. The .concussion cracked a water line and the ship started taking on water. I mean, what does a sailor know about throwing hand grenades unless you are a 'Navy Seal'??? The line was repaired and I continued my patrols, but I then THREW the grenades as far as I could... lol I like to tell the story of "How I almost sank my ship with a hand grenade", even if it IS a TRUE story!
  22. That I'll never be able to hold my daughter and her children ever again before I die. They are in a country on the other side of the world and I don't think that I will ever be able to afford the trip nor they be able to come here... sigh... Another part of the problem is my health... sitting for 10 hrs on one plane then 5 hours on another, not good for a man in my .condition...
  23. Quiet, so far, but expecting to do some other thingstoday, other than just playing around on my laptop...
