A mighty wind

These Oregon coast winds can flatten a cockapoo.

Common ground

I met a geophysicist in the forest yesterday who was on his way to a Kate Wolf festival. While I didn't quite understand what he did for a living, I completely understood his taste in music.

Up and away

I'm climbing the ladder, going through the window, seeing what's on the other side. I'll be back in about 6 weeks, perhaps newly energized and inspired. It depends of course on what I find, inside and out.


Staring at the floor hasn't helped, nor wringing my hands. Facts are facts. My blog-sense has gone the way of all passing things. I don't know if this is temporary and neither does that woman in the blue dress.

Coming in 3rd

Annie Bones came in 3rd out of 10 winners in the local Woof to Woof Dog Parade! She won a bag of buffulo livers.

Don't call

Someone in Santa Cruz won 39 million in the lottery this weekend. To all my friends and relatives: It wasn't me.

Happy Father's Day

To my sons, Aaron and Sol. Both unique and incredible fathers to my 3 grandkids.

The man who owns this bar/restaurant was so despondent when his Doberman died he had him stuffed. To get inside to order lunch, you have to pass right by the hapless creature in a glass case. (Yesterdays specialty: The Tower of Spam.)

Our new neighbors

We met a man named Bert who is going to teach us how to weld.
Fence leading into Chloride, AZ

Our new property, 1st and Tennessee, 3 lots with water and electric and a Nubian goat living next door.

Chloride, AZ

I've been searching for a tiny desert town just like the one I fled 30 years ago. Maybe today is the day.

The Book

I feel lighter already.
