Cocoa Village BBQ & Blues

The 5th Annual festival was held in the Historic Cocoa Village downtown park. ⇓ I arrived a bit early and walked the Village Shops where I found the Ossario Cafe.  Had a delightful sun-dried tomato and Asiago omelette, served with their own freshly baked french...

Stringing fence

Today I added some cross fencing to the horse pasture. It's easy. Just push in t-posts with the Bobcat , cover with the HorseGuard plastic sleeves, pop in the tape guides and string the electric tape.

Original and square crop filtered. It was 2 degrees at 7am.

Cedaredge Apple Festival

One of the carnies showing off the Euro Bungee.  It rained.

Great dinner

Scallops on a bed of rice and romaine.  This is part of the reason why I have dropped form a high weight of 282 in December of 2007 to 229 this week,  My goal is to get to about 190 lbs.

Just me relaxing. #self #selfportrait

Thanksgiving, a time for family

This holiday season has started.  The weather here in Delta is just about perfect for fall, crisp with a chill that reminds you of what is on the way.  I'm going into this season with anticipation of Christmas without hospitals, in good health.  I am so grateful to...

Sad H1N1 Vaccine Story

I don't usually add stuff here unless it relates to our life somehow, but this is an exception.  My purpose in linking to this video is not to discourage people from getting the vaccine, but to show how strange the human body functions.  Keep in mind...

They love me!

Olathe Sweet Corn Festival

Brandy and the boys came down and we went to the festival. All the roasted corn on the cob you can eat!  The best sweet corn available anywhere.

Early Morning Run!

Got up early and drove 30 minutes north to Blanchard Park for the Orlando Runners Club 5K. This was a spur of the moment idea when I ran across a blurb for the run online.  I haven't done a full 5K for several years but felt I was in shape enough to do it in 2min/1min...

Christmas and New Years

Despite the inactivity here on the site, we did indeed celebrate both Christmas and New Years. Matt, Brandy and the boys arrived on Christmas afternoon, followed shortly thereafter by Jeff and Leta. We enjoyed a fantastic Prime Rib dinner and were joined by Jim and...

We have a new baby!

After waiting 11 months we finally have our new baby pony.  Even before leaving California we tried to get Zanna pregnant but had little success with artificial insemination.  The original stud just didn't have good swimmers I guess. Well, last summer we...

Nature Is Beautiful

Unless otherwise noted, all photos are taken with my iPhone and post-processed with iPhone applications.  I seldom carry my Canon 20D anymore except in situations where I need to use the big 400mm telephoto lens.

Winter is here

Winter is here

Well, winter arrived early as usual.  We usually get snow on or around Halloween and this year was no exception.  Everyone is healthy and things are going well. The company I work for filed Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in October and I've been handling the process with...

Summer ’05

Summer ’05

Summer in Meeker is a short-lived thing, and this year it was very comfortable.  Sandi and I took several trips to see Joe and Anita in Missouri, even spent a lot of time looking at property to purchase.  In the end, nothing came of it as there isn't much in the...



Not much news recently.  As if you wanted to know, I had hernia surgery, all went well.  We have had a very mild winter so far, we're in the middle of the second warm spell which is melting all previous snow causing a 2nd mid-winter 'mud season'. ...

Range Call ’04

Range Call ’04

I posted a bunch of photos taken at our Range Call celebration.  It is held every 4th of July (4 day event) and includes rodeo, parade, concert, dance and fireworks.  This year we hosted Steve Azar. One of the best parts is the re-enactment of the Meeker...

Just an update

Just an update

Spent a bit of time updating the pics pages and moving the site as a sub-web of my weatherweather.net site.  I've always been interested in weather phenomenon and after leaving Bakersfield it dawned on me that I'm finally living in an area that actually HAS...
