I went to southern CAlifornia with the family this last week for Thanksgiving. My wife has family there and they are always fun to hang out with. Here is some shots of Disney and California Adventure. Terror Tower A cool new fast pass handed out to limited random guests (we got them!)  Posted by Picasa

2006 Veterans day was wet and cold. I felt very proud of my daughter and her high school's ROTC unit at Spanish Springs High School. They were first in line and made me proud watching the parade.

Here she is.

Last week we had a great fog roll into the Truckee Meadows. This only happens once in a while a we get a great opportunity for photos like these.  Posted by Picasa

More Napa grapes  Posted by Picasa
I am the Luckiest guy in the world! I was just in Napa California for my 19th wedding anniversary. These are two of my most favorite things to do, hang out with my wife and hanging out in Napa. All the vines are turning reds and yellows. Pumpkins are all around and it seems as though every winery still has grapes on the vines. There is lots of winery smells and lots to taste.  Posted by Picasa

I still have roses in the yard this late into October and still blooming strong. I expect the snow to fall on these shortly.  Posted by Picasa

In Reno this last weekend there was thousands of motorcycles downtown for the festival "Street Vibrations 2006". I saw a lot of radical choppers and custom bikes.  Posted by Picasa

I have been listening to a podcast called "King Bonk's Campfire". He tells some amazing stories while a fire crackles in the background and sometimes he playes his guitar. It had been a while since I made a fire so this last Sunday in the backyard I did. As the fire also crackled and as my daughter roasted marshmallows, I played the guitar into the night. As I played his seductive G/C riff, I thought of the mighty King Bonk and his amazing stories. Love ya ole mightly King.

One can see that summer is just about over and fall is just about here. The garden is overgrown and the wheel barrow is resting. I guess that I will have to get busy and start the fall cleanup.  Posted by Picasa

Here is the new ride. I got rid of the Magnum because it was bad in the snow. I went down and test drove the new all drive Magnum but found this beauty instead, a Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi Megacab. Posted by Picasa

I was at "A taste for Art", a Nevada Museum of Art wine tasting last Friday night and when I left I saw Peavine Mt. on fire. Check out this photo of what I saw. photo by Deb Haas Posted by Picasa
