Mobile Home

Not sure where the hell I was, CA

I took a drive during lunch. I'm somewhere between Jersey Island, Oakley, Bethel Island and Knightsen. Beyond that - not a clue.

hearted shutters

Oakley, CA

This house is a few blocks from my office. I thought the heart shaped shutters were cute.

Business park scenery

Pleasant Hill, CA

I had an all day Employee Training meeting today that would have been a total waste if it wasn't for Alice and Claudia keeping me awake and for all of these beautiful water ways surrounding the facilities.

(BTW - Melinda, there are pine trees, weeping willows, grass and moss in this picture. Because i know you'll ask)

San Leandro, CA

This is the first place I took KNJ on our first date in 2002. Today I was back near here to see her little brother's missionary farewell talk. I knew him when he was 14 and awkward. To see him now - 19 and a young man ready to share the gospel in Brasil...amazing.

Jean Val and Offred

Antioch, CA

I finished reading "The Handmaid's Tale" on Monday and started reading "Les Miserables." I've seen Les Mis twice on stage so as I'm reading the book occasionally a song will pop into my head.

getting through the day

Antioch, CA

I've had a bad cold for the past week, which got worse on Monday night. On Tuesday I didn't see any clients, nor did I on Wednesday. But today I was seeing clients again, so being horribly sick wasn't an option. Thankfully I was able to suck on these long enough today that my boss didn't send me home and I was able to treat without coughing on clients.

32 Stories up

San Fransisco, CA

I had a "Father and Son" day in the city today. My father forgot about my fear of heights and took me on two death defying adventures: To a bar 32 stories up and to a hotel 51 stories up. This shot is from the bar. The other shots are in the BTC shots.

A bathroom 32 stories up in the air that was nicer than any bathroom I'd ever been in.
A woman making fortune cookies in Chinatown
We ate at this amazing Italian restaurant. There was this couple there that heard I had just moved here from Idaho that literally had me eat a potato off their table. It was one of the finest potatoes I had ever had.

It was finally warm enough that John and I could Bar B Q. I couldn't decide which was better - this picture or this one

John and I went on an adventure today. We started out by going to Emeryville, but ended up in Port Costa eventually.

Frogs and Turtles

Oakley, CA

At work, each time a child touches a toy in therapy, it has to be washed. Certain clients will only respond to certain particular toys. So some days I spend all day long washing the frogs, the turtles and the Velcro fruit.

This much

Antioch, CA

My Massage Therapist suggested I start drinking more water. She suggests at least 32 ounces every day. So I started drinking 32 ounces every day. Over the past two weeks I have found my self refilling it half way through out the day so I guess I'm drinking 48 ounces now.

Knock and it shall be opened unto you.

It was so warm today that we opened up the apartment's windows and door and let the warmth and breezes sift through the house.

Barred Windows

Antioch, CA

I represented my office at a farewell party for one of the therapists in the county I work for. Today was her last day and we ate at a Mexican restaurant that not only had bars on the window that faced out, but bars on the windows on the inside.

(On a personal note, I generally don't eat Mexican for lunch when I'm working. The reason being, for the rest of the day, when my unit would smell funny I was forced to look innocent when instead I wanted to admit, "Yup - that's my butt.")
