    Ms. Drift,

    I cry foul. It's really not fair to hire some gorgeous professional model look-alike. We can't all afford that, you know!! <G>

    4:35-4:37 straw hat. When Tito says "Come on RL." at 4;49, you can see my back.

    This is the shot my avatar comes from. We—The Boss, and the g'kids were on a trip to Monterey. The sign is cryptoenigmagramitically apropos of the foreground subject as well as for the beach and the ocean in the background.



    Taken a couple of months ago when the wildfire smoke made the air quality bad. The Sacramento River, with the iconic Tower Bridge, taken from the I-80 freeway, crossing the river just downstream of the confluence of the Sacramento and American rivers. We're on the left bank side, which used to be just the western part of Sacramento, but then became incorporated as West Sacramento, and is now part of Yolo County. I think it's named for the local indigenous American tribe. I like to think it's where 'you only live once.'




    Every morning before I start my chores, I practice guitar for half an hour or more. I put the phone in a panavise on a shelf opposite the main workbench to record my session. This is a screen-grab from a couple of days ago, which I included to show how trustworthy I be. I collect the videos, and never watch or listen to any of them and then delete them after a week or so. One day I hope to record a perfect, half hour of error-free picking. A little while I ago I formulated the thought, or it just came to me, probably as I was playing, that as long as I only think about the music, the melody, the chords, the famous lyrics, I can play with muscle memory and get every note right, and it doesn't sound too bad. But I tend to get button-holed and shanghaied by distracting thoughts, and when I start thinking of something other than the music, my fingers turn into thumbs.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    we call that "long-arming", rob, when you hold your catch out in front of you to make your...hand...look bigger.

    fun fish pictures. i don't have one that isn't over a year old, i regret.

    Why, Lee! I would NEVER force perspective.

    The bluegill? His mouth was completely propped open by the hook. Just a barbless single, as is my wont, but he went for the 1/0 like he meant business.
    Iím not sure he knows I was aiming for his predators...

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Nice fish! I would love to go saltwater fishing with you someday. I bet the man in the brown suit was a good fight. The have caught a few cobias in the lower Chesapeake. Always a good battle!
