Location: Eureka, California, United States

My front porch in Old Town Eureka is known as The Sunny Side. Southern exposure, protected from the wind, it is an ideal place to sit and play old timey tunes and watch the parade go by.

Lion Tales At Eureka High

Last night Sophia was in a production of 'Lion Tales' staged by the Lafayette Theater Club of Lafayette Elementary School in the Eureka High School Auditorium.

Cribbage At Has Beans

Joe, Jamie, Ann, Pat and I play cribbage most every afternoon at Has Beans. It gets pretty contentious, but it's all in fun. It's about as much fun as folks can have with both hands above the table. But the question always arises, who is the Honorary Undisputed Cribbage King? So I've made an online survey, who is the Cribbage Champ?

Obama '08 T Shirt

I got my tee shirt in the mail today, for making a donation to Obama's Presidential campaign. America is calling for change. Not a day passes in Old Town that I'm not asked for change. Barack Obama promises change. The other candidates only promise more of the same. If you really want change support Barack Obama.

Lily and Jessie took Sophia and Taylor to Disneyland last week. It was the kid's first time. I loved taking Lily and Jess there when they were kids.
