More Pomegranate

After a raccoon got into it.
This one split on its own and the birds ate out of it.

In case, like me, you've never had a pomegranate, try looking here.


Clyde, CA

...After the squirrels got to it.

I got a chest X-ray today to prove I don't have Tuberculosis.

To test if I'm a criminal

Antioch, CA
Today I was fingerprinted like a criminal to see if I was a criminal. Thank goodness these hands can only tell stories of the crimes I have been caught for. (-:

another shot from bahia, ca

Mothball Fleet

Bahia, CA

Even though there is obviously a road that would have gotten me closer, this is the best I could do. The nice man with the gun standing next to the unmarked government truck told me I could take as many pictures as I wanted as long as I stayed where I was.

These boats are part of the reserve fleet located in Suisun Bay.

12 bedrooms and two kitchens

Antioch, CA

This house was for sale about 5 years ago and I tried and tried to get my buddy Harold to buy it. He was marrying a beautiful woman with two kids. Then there was John, Krista and I. We would still have 6 rooms left over after that!! We could have gone days without even seeing each other!! We could have built treasure maps for guests just to find the bathroom! But no, Harold bought a house in another city instead. Sad days.

Searching for ET

Antioch, CA

There is a new Asian Buffet restaurant in town that has search lights lighting up the sky trying to attract customers. I know the company that owns these two particular lights. They don't treat their employees well.

Happy Birthday Dad

Fremont, CA

In case you can't read the balloons, they spell out "Happy Birthday Dad." I decided on 16 balloons over the reverse of that number.

Antioch, CA

I was looking for my bread pan yesterday and found these instead. My mother gave these to me to store my sugar, flour and other stuff. They were for me and an ex-fiance.

Reading material

Antioch, CA

I've started unpacking some of my books. Evidently I have a whole bookcase full, and then some, of books.

(Why do I have three psychology books and no sociology books?)

Controlled Chaos

Antioch, Ca

I was carrying my toolbox around when it got too heavy, so I shifted my weight and heard all of these sockets fall out of place. I'll spend 15 minutes on Monday sorting them.

Moving Furniture

Antioch, CA

I spent most of today moving stuff around in my room to make room and to get ready to put in the wall.

Plans for a wall

I'm going to be building a wall to separate my room from the Kitchen. These are my plans.

Which Numbers am I not allowed to wear again?

Pick which ties need to be thrown away. Use the number on the tie to identify which ties are not good for me. Fair warning number 8 is exempt from your votes.

(This is a follow up to PAD)

All tied up

Antioch, CA

This picture is mainly for the women in my life to decide what I can and cannot wear in the future. And before the argument ensues, there are 22 in total.

i passes

Antioch, CA

In able to become a teacher in California, you must pass the CSET. A mere 33 percent of those that take the test the first time pass it. According to the stats provided by the state of CA, 50 percent of the people who take the test take it a little at a time. A potential teacher can have 10 hours to take 1, 2, 3 or all 4 tests. 50 percent take them 2 at a time.

I took all 4 last month. The results for the first three came out today. I passed all three. If (when) I pass the 4th (which should be known by next Monday) I could be teaching in a classroom by November.

10 Minutes

Antioch, CA

I'm a Shower Hore, so I bought a timer a few weeks ago to help me limit my time in the shower to 10 minutes.

Tie Die

Antioch, CA

I went to take off my tie tonight and when it got to the knot the frail threads gave way and the tie became two. This was a tie my brother gave me when he thought it was on its last leg. I nursed it for a few more years until tonight. And I really liked that tie!

More from my Dad's Doctor Trip

Fremont, CA

Blogger is being weird tonight when it comes to pictures. The top picture should be on the bottom and there should be two more pictures up there. Oh well.

My dad had a surgical procedure done today. I took pictures in the waiting room while I waited for him. Afterwards, he wanted his first mean to be McDonalds Pancakes and Sausage. Yummy!

The losers

I didn't know which picture to choose for PAD for today, so I posted 3 pictures. These two lost.

And the winner is Jelly

Antioch, CA

I didn't know which picture to post. So I posted three pictures. This one won. I threw the 2 other into Beyond the Cut.

I went to FHE tonight at someone's home that had Thomas Kinkade Pictures and this cool chandelier.
