Rob is almost moved in. So far we haven't gotten on each others nerves yet at least from my perspective.

O.K. Here we are ready to go at Age of Sail 2006 at Hyde St. Pier in San Francisco. I drove down with 3 kids who had never been anywhere past Sacramento. They were very excited. Here we had only been standing in the rain for about an hour. More to come...

On Friday and Saturday there is a big Emerald Nuts Quality of Life Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center. If you'd like to go with me I'd be happy to take you--it's free, interesting, see lots of good stuff about running, cycling, Honda cars, Acura cars, shoes, nuts, etc. It's not as fun as a bicycle show; but it is fun.
Let me know if you'd like to go down there with me on Friday afternoon or Saturday. I hope it is a lot warmer next Sunday than it was today. I am fairly confident it won't snow. It hasn't snowed here since Crash.

The photos from 1999 contained my graduation from Pepperdine, Rob's graduation from ED (including a visit from my parents for both events), Samson #1 swimming in the Placerville pool, Mom-Pete's retirement party at our home, and a trip to Cancun. What fun it was to relive those memories!
I love photographs! They capture treasured times and people. Several impressions -- can so much have changed in just a few short years? The photos of Daniel and Timothy! They look so young and little. Amazing! Glen's hair...let's say it looks better now. Mine, too, for that matter. Regarding my Pepperdine cohort, with less than ten of us, I was able to recall the names of everyone but one. I really enjoyed working with her, too, but could not pull her name out of my head for some reason. I suspect it will come firing into my mind late tonight. I tried the alumni web finder, too, to no avail.
If I would just jot down the details soon after printing the photos, I would be better off! Then I'd know "good ol' what's her name's" name and could finish that part of my album.

Subject: Investing in your retirement
If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would
now be worth $49.00.
With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.
With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.
But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank
all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND,
you would have had $214.00.
Based on the above, current investment advice is to drink heavily and
It's called the 401-Keg Plan

The feeder fish must be confused. Second snow and it is cold outside.
The snow is pretty. Beth's school is closed for a snow day and most of Steve' clients have cancelled. Kyle is still asleep. No chains for his van so he will be home. I might have to start a fire in the woodstove. Make hot chocolate.
