MY BRAIN IS EXPLODING - FROM ALL THE NEWS & STUFF...

So, I decided to just deal with pictures from the vacation before commenting on all the bullshit news. (tongue in cheek). I have posted the vacay pics at flickr site if anyone want to check out the fuller figure club at the beach! Hey, at this point in my life, I couldn't care less - I just wanted to get away.

I had to take a picture in the car as we were hading to OC, as we had 2 cell phones, an iPod, a radar detector and stuff all on the dash - and I commented to thedaughter that our dash alone was worth a pretty penny.

Not even ten minutes after we checked into our room, I got a phone call - it was a young man's voice and all he said was "get out of the room, the cops are on their way!" WTF...we hadn't even burned one yet! Paranoia sets in, as I am super tired. I complained to the manager at the front desk that I was not impressed with getting prank calls immediately upon arriving in our room. They apologized and said it wouldn't happen again - like how are they going stop something like that? I was hoping this was not going to be a portent of things to come. (It wasn't.)

This is my ultimate favorite picture...thegrandson flying his kite. I put it together and he just took off and did an amazing job of getting it to soar! When he first got the kite up in the air, I was impressed...then I realized the tail was still balled up - yet he got it very high. He did even better once we unraveled the tail and let it fly!

There wasn't one single decent sunrise to film though. Every morning looked like it was going to storm (yet only stormed on 3 occasions), but by noon all was clear.

I'm going to have stop here, as I have some things to tend to, but I will add more later. Have a great day friends...enjoy the weather! (Hope it is good for all.)

Sometimes I miss the ocean like an absent limb...

i was already in mid-30s by the time i got to the beach to live. 1980-84, in Santa Barbara. I flipped off raygun's Chopper flying overhead from the parking lot of the break where i surfed usually.

i am of two minds about my surfing experiences. one is that had I started in my youth, as a gremmie, I might never have left the water, and who know where that might have gone...the other is that, having learned it late, I have a really special appreciation for the minor miracles i would have taken for granted had I been a beach baby...

another thing: I came equipped, genetically, with far, far too little melanin for as much as I love the beach and the sea...I was using bullfrog as soon as i learned of its existence...

Great pics! I loved your comments on them too. But Colton is waayyyy to old for floaties - I hate those damned things - as a swim instructor, they give kids a false sense of safety.

Rant off//

Woody: I love my annual cruise to the Caribbean, but that didn't pan out this year. Sun and surf work well for me as a rejuvenating force.

Lisa G: He does not need the swimmies...he just likes to wear them and thinks he is cool. I taught swimming for many years, was a life guard and hate the damn things personally. Thanks.

Looks like vacation was fun! I'm glad you had a good time. Thank goodness the cops didn't catch you.
