Freeze Warning

A  L  O  H  A !
"Be like a tree 
and let the 
dead leaves 

It is not Antarctica,
or Chicago.
This is COLD weather
for the Bay Area.
But I can handle.
In fact I ADORE
wearing clothes!
After 30 sweaty years,
I am digging this!

Let The FUN Continue!
"Let no one 
ever come to you
 without leaving happier."
                            Mother Teresa


Thank YOU!

Shadow Thoughts

A  L  O  H  A !
 Bar Shadows

“The unfed mind 
devours itself.” 
               Gore Vidal

Dusk Shadows

"When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight 
is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's 
off with her head
what the dormouse said
Feed your head
Feed your head"
"White Rabbit"

Thank YOU
for making it
worth while!

Wonders of the North Bay

A  L  O  H  A !
 Vallejo across San Pablo Bay

“What do you do there, 
moon, in the sky? 
Tell me what you 
do, silent moon. 
When evening comes you 
rise and go contemplating 
wastelands; then you set.” 
                                Giacomo Leopardi

 Alcatrace (Pelican) Impersonates Pterodactyl

"A wonderful bird is the pelican, 
His bill will hold more 
than his belican, 
He can take in his beak 
Enough food for a week
 But I'm damned if I see 
how the helican!"
                        Dixon Lanier Merritt (1910)

"The rollin' hills seem 
to do something for you
It seems they're meant to be 
looked on by you
And when the sunshine 
is doing it's thing
Then you know that 
all you see is true
Every day every night the 
same old groovy feelin'
People that live a lot
 love a lot
And everything there 
is so good 

Look at California
Look at California"
