Simply a laid back single guy who loves the memory of of his Mom. In tune with nature and the seasons. I am adopted, no brothers or sisters. Never married and no children. Have a good job that I really enjoy because of all the variety and out doors work. I've suffered low self esteem but I think I may be finally growing out of it. I love solitude but it is lonely sometimes.

I Love Nature

Cool Tail I stumbled on a couple of rats nests this past month. The native rats here in Southern California have hair on their tail. And they're cool. I point out the hair on their tail because these rats are... [more]

    Bacon
    I love Bacon. I can't just enjoy a few pieces with some eggs and toast however. I'll fry up as much as I can get into the pan. And when that is eaten, I will fry up all the rest until it is all gone. So much Bacon is not good for me I know, but I don't seem to care when the craving takes hold. I wish I had some bacon right now. But all I have is some spaghetti noodles and beef stew.… [more]
  • Thinking about tomorrow...

    Posted on: October 22nd, 2012 at 10:06PM

    Got some pasta on the stove and I begun thinking about how best to attack the day tomorrow. Then I thought hey, maybe you should write some of this down. Who knows, maybe somebody might catch interest. So the plumbers weren't able to get that pipe through under the road today. The water jet and the drill bit failed because they are hitting a big rock or possibly even a piece of concrete just about eighteen inches in. They have about twelve feet to go total so, they didn't make it. It was worth a try but now I must cut the road so I can dig it by hand. I can be set up with the concrete/asphalt saw and water hose by 7:20 and ready to go. But then It occurred to me that the guy is living in the… [more]

  • My GardenII

    Posted on: July 12th, 2010 at 10:38PM

    The garden is doing well but I just had a depressing set back today. I just noticed that my first ripe tomato has been partially eaten. I decided to let the tomatoes ripen on the vine. Last night or today, it finally completely ripened and just a moment ago I looked and about 4/10's of it have been eaten away. I suspect a squirrel. I've read that they will do that and some people are of the opinion that it is to quench thirst, i.e., the water. This tomato is very large, I'd say a little bigger than a baseball but not as big as a softball. The next one about to ripen is on another plant and i guess i will pick it a little early and let it ripen indoors. The corn plants are in various stages… [more]
