Bird on a Fence

Clyde, CA

I just want to confirm - this is a bird and not a grasshopper.

Harold took this pic of me tonight after I was done sanding sheet rock.

California Sunset

I'm sorry I couldn't figure out a way to take these shots with out the power line or the bloody cell tower in the way.

Snow Fight

John got tired of me bitching about the fact that everyone else has snow and I don't. So he pulled out this fake snow crap and we got into a snow fight. It turns out this stuff is nothing like snow. It doesn't melt in John's mouth. Trust me.

Last Digit

Antioch, CA

My phone is dying a very slow death and pretty soon here I'm going to have to get a new one. The keypad doesn't always pick up the number I'm putting on it, or it picks up the number twice. It's very frustrating. Soon I will renew my contract and get a new phone (and a new number).

I went with John to Kaiser today. His sinuses are already giving him problems.

trash cans

Antioch, CA

I've had a lot on my mind lately. The big thing on my mind is my job. There is other stuff on the peripheral that is beginning to have an effect on me as well. So today you just get a picture of trash cans. I'm sorry. I'm hoping to be more inspiring in the future.

Christmas Lights on Temple Hill

Oakland, CA

They lit the lights for the Christmas Season on Temple Hill tonight.


A Star a Star...

My father has me convinced that a tri-pod will fix the blurry problem. We'll see.

I'm sorry, but all of my other shots turned out really crappy today, so here is yet another sunset. I really like the orange in this shot.

Happy Turkey Day

Concord, CA

We went out to Marie Calender's for Thanksgiving Dinner tonight. I was sooo hungry by the time our main course showed up that I forgot to get a picture of the fixin's. Thankfully John eats slower than me.

Porcelain Goddess

Antioch, CA

I started throwing up last night about 11PM and continued into this morning. I ended up having to call in sick for my 4th day of work. I'm still nauseas 12 hours after I initially started vomiting.

The Dinner of Chapions

Antioch, CA

After not eating any chocolate in either liquid form or cooked form for almost 2 months, I cracked under the pressure last night. Work was just too much so I had chocolate chip cookies and hot chocolate.

One last try

Concord, CA

As the day drew to a close, the sunlight tried one last time to shoot through the clouds.

On a completely different subject: My brother, his wife and my niece are the best people on God's green earth.

Thrrough the web

Clyde, CA

Sometimes images get distorted when we look through the webs of our own deceptions.

Crawdad with a top hat

Isleton, CA


My trip along 160

I took a trip up to Sacramento today along Highway 160More of the Crawdad
The Cafe doesn't exist any more - just the sign. I figure as soon as they installed the major freeway, the back roads no longer saw business.
The Bridge going into Rio Vista
I'm scared that the next time I come by to take a picture of this house it will have died, so I took a crappy picture of it today for safe keeping.

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there

Clyde, CA

I saw more flags today than I did yesterday.

Please remember that if you had the day off today, it is nice to say thanks.

Several of the buildings in Old Downtown Antioch have painting on the walls. Here's the one at 4th and G.

Block of wood

Anitoch, CA

I'm working on carving a new fish and it's not going well. If the project doesn't get better in the next day, I might redesign the plans and turn it into a box of kindling.

Buddy in Action

Fremont, CA

The dog in the foreground is Buddy. The black lab in the background is Sadie. They were both too busy begging for food from my friend to pose for the camera.

This is the 150th post, fyi.

The green sunset

Antioch, Ca

I can't take credit for scouting this location. A guy in my church reminded me there was a fishing dock in Antioch to take pictures from.

I dated a girl 5 years ago who loved the green in everything. I trained myself to see the green in sunsets and have a hard time not seeing the green in sunsets now.

PGE came to shut off my friend's gas today before her house got tented.

Antioch, CA

Santa brought me this desk like 20 years ago. I think it's the only thing Santa gave me that has survived.

There was a baptism tonight. This Sister Missionary was enjoying her last baptism refreshments. She goes home to Springville UT on Wednesday.
