Oompa Lommpa

Antioch, CA

This is Little Bear. He, unlike Lily, LB is mellow, slow moving and very appreciative of very little attention. He doesn't follow you around the house axiously waiting for you to take him on a W-A-L-K like some other dog we know.

The reason for the title is because of the type of dog she is. Every time I hear the name I think to myself that she's a Oompa Loompa.

Men with guns and flags

San Jose, CA

This was the Color Guard prior to the game.

Watching the A's lose it

Oakland CA

Oakland A's 2
Minnesota Twins 12
$7 for two tickets. It was a sad game but at least we didn't pay too much.

look at the size of my melons

Antioch, CA

The Cantaloupe are ready to be eaten out of the garden. They are kind of small, but they taste great. (They are just slightly larger than an Ostrich egg.)

Not even free

Antioch, CA

At work we are constantly getting stuff for free that we then give away to our clients for free. I've been on the job for almost 8 months and no one has taken the Yankees ball cap. Even if it's free people won't support such a sucky team.

Saturn Door Guts

Antioch, CA

Lily and I see this car every few days on our walks. It's a Saturn with a slightly damaged door. Just like new, just needs a little body work and a fresh coat of paint.

Heritage tree

Brentwood, CA

This looks like it would be a great climbing tree. Or even a tree to just sit under and read a book to your honey. Mind you, the girl I like, it would probably be an ecology book. (-:

digging out

Antioch, CA

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate moving. For this move I'm applying the "thrice move rule." If I haven't used since I moved three times ago it is going away. Childhood blanket excluded.

Green Gators versus the Gators

Antioch, CA

I went to an able bodied soccer game today.


Dublin, CA

I went to dinner at Fudruckers tonight and as I was getting ready to order I saw this on the wall. So I ordered a soda and then found out they only carry Pepsi products. I felt way cheated. I don't really like Pepsi products. I'd rather drink water than Pepsi. I LOVE Coke and love drinking it with a burger and some fries. Shame on Fudruckers for screwing up my drinkage tonight.

B or Better

Brentwood, CA

The 5th time is the charm right?

Flower and that cute mutt

Antioch, CA

I saw this beautiful flower today on our walk. Not a clue what type it is and figuring my ecology expert is in TN for the next few (15!) months, I doubt we'll ever know.

I'd like to apologize for posting yet another picture of Lily, but this one was just too cute. As I was getting ready to hook up my camera to my computer, Lily came up and started sniffing it. The second picture resulted from her sniffing the camera.

Faithful Follower

Antioch, CA

You feed her a few times, pet her every day, and take her for walks every third day and suddenly you've got a really faithful follower. Every time I get up from my computer to go to my bedroom or go to the restroom, Lily gets up as well and follows me to my destination, waits and then follows me back. I wish dating was this easy.

Clyde, CA

I went to a friend's 90th birthday party tonight.

In case you were confused

Pittsburg, CA

That thing you are walking toward, with handles and key locks on it...yeah that thing. It's a glass door. WARNING! It's a Glass Door. No telling what it may do to you. Usually it opens and then closes but you never know so be warned.

(Oh how I'm going to love being at a Junior College again. Everything is a teaching opportunity.)

Toss up Thursday

Oakley, CA

Antioch CA
I had a peach for breakfast.
I wish I could find a good place in the Antioch Hills that was unobstructed to take pictures of the sunsets better.

purple blooming

Antioch, CA

Not sure why it's blurry. Oh well.

Tuesday, August 12, 2008


Pittsburg, CA

This morning when I arrived at work I had two flasks and 25 bottles of water in the back of my truck in this milk crate. Some time in the 8 hours my truck sat in the parking lot, some body or some bodies came by and took about 20 of the water bottles. I hope they tasted good.

Irrigation sunset

Antioch, CA

Lily took me on a walk tonight and I saw this as we were heading home. It reminded me of one of my favorite pictures I took over a year ago.

Awaiting a desk

Antioch, CA

I was finally able to get to my computer in storage tonight and hook up to the internet after 10 days without. My computer desk is still buried though - so for tonight I'm operating like this.

Twofer Berkeley

Oakland Hills, CA
Berkeley, CA

I spent the morning with my friend Barbara. We went to a park and walked around (finding the waterfall by accident) and then we went to go buy a bike for her. The lady selling the bike had a brand new puppy that was just so cute.

Flash Flower

Antioch, CA

Instead of paying Utilities (Water, PGE, ATT and internet), I'm up keeping the garden. This is one of the new flowers under my care.

Wednesday, August 6, 2008


Oakley, CA

I've never seen grapes before they make it to the grocery store. These are growing right next to a parking lot I frequent.

I buzzed my head again tonight.

New Roommie

Antioch, Ca

This is one of my new house mates. Her name is Lily and I'm sure you will see her on here often.

Tight Space

Antioch, CA

My new room is a third of the size of my old room. Thankfully the house is empty so my left over furniture gets distributed through out the house.

Antioch, CA

I finished moving out this morning. This is the entry way to my storage unit.
