I like being old school. I don't have to take any B.S. from anyone, anywhere, anytime.

I pass my time these days passing time. Not too much has changed. Thank God for bicycles, though.

School Story:

I graduated. No honors. I just graduated and they sent me on my way, post haste.

I had to open a new FB account because my original account had been hacked. I lost everything; pictures, friends, history, etc. I sent out Friend Requests, but had only about 10% response rate. I can't blame people for not responding as it would look pretty suspicious to me. I mean why would you Friend someone who has already been a Friend on FB. Alas, so goes it. If you'd like to send me a Friend Request, please do. I'm trying to reconstruct my new FB account. Thank you, BB, Seattle, WA.

Darnit, had I have only seen this post earlier, I would have been at Bob's memorial service in Totem Lake, Kirkland, WA.  My bad.

Bob was a true friend to all of us on this site.  I remember him well from our teeage years in Salt Lake City.  Always an uplifting spirit, he will be missed by all who have known him, past and present.  I've known for some time that Bob has lived in the Seattle area (Eastside communities), but had been reticent to make contact with him.  Again, my bad.  But, I'm certain that he fought the valient fight against his cancer.  He will be remembered as a exemplary spirit who has touched the lives of many throughout the years.  His trial by fire has ceased and I'm sure he has moved on to a much better world; one where all strife has been alleviated.  Bob, you will be missed.

Ron, here's to wishing you a happy birthday in a few days, October 4th. Best wishes! Also, I seem to have lost you on Facebook. Are you still there? It seems I had a different Ron Scott, b. 1976, in my contacts list. Sorry, as I probably messed it up. BB

If you're curious about this ship, look at the other picture. That's how these giant "dinosaur" cranes arrive from Japan where they're made. This ship recently unloaded some of these cranes at the Port of Tacoma some thirty miles to the south on Puget Sound. Here in Elliott Bay, Seattle, it's taking harborage before the weather looks good enough across the Pacific Ocean for a safe return. Notice the low freeboard. I surely wouldn't want to be aboard this vessel when it's loaded for the trans-Pacific journey. This is only the second time in ten years that I've seen one of these specially constructed single purpose ships. After all, these cranes aren't exactly a common commodity.

Geez, I hadn't uploaded a picture in so long, I'd forgotten how to do it. I just selected this picture at random to see if it would post. Sure enough. All you have to do is click on "Add Photo" from the "What's New" opening page.

Salt Lake City residents: I'm asking that you might help an acquaintance and her friend from Germany and the Netherlands. They're in the United States on a work visa that comes to an end early this Summer. The German young lady is Maria Schmidt. She has been working as an au pair in San Ramone, California. She stayed here at my place about six months ago and I can attest that she is a fine young person. I do not know the name of her travel partner, but the two of them want to stay in SLC for one night, May 19th and 20th. SLC will be their launching point to go to Yellowstone National Park. Like a lot of twenty-something econo-travelers, they utilize a website, www.couchsurfing.com. It's a totally legitimate website dedicated to people helping people with the goal of making this world a better place for everyone through cultural exchange and fostering international understanding on a 1:1 basis. Again,they plan on being in SLC only for one night, May 19th and the 20th. Here is a link to Maria Schmidt's profile on the couchsurfing site. https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/maria-schmitz-2/friends She does not know I have forwarded this request to those of you in Salt Lake. If you're interested in assisting these two European young ladies, just go to Maria's Profile page and send her an Invite note. First, you will have to register at the CS web page. Thanks, Bill B.

Happy Birthday, Pam. Hope you're having a wonderful day

Happy birthday, Debbie!

Steve, I barely remember you because I didn't go to Skyline when given the opportunity. In any case, bicycle touring is the best bicycling there is. I'm a convert to this method of vacationing transportation. It gets you much closer to Mother Nature's road and at pace that's thoroughly enjoyable. On a loaded bike fifty to sixty miles a day in most cases is just about right. More than that and it becomes not as much fun.

Your guess is as good as mine. Taken from the south end of the playground, Eastwood (?) Elementary School, 33rd South and Wasatch Blvd, the old 'hood. (SLC, Utah)

I made it to the top of Mount Olympus just before turning 16 years old. I was equipped with a pair of cutoff jeans, U.S. Keds on my feet, and a tee shirt hung from a belt loop. Need a climbing guide? Low rates.

Looking vertically downward into the abyss. Mount Rainier National Park, Washington. The ferns were growing horizontally from the perpendicular rock face.

Wild trilliums in an undisclosed location within Seattle city limits. Added later: Oops, these aren't trilliums. Wrong photo. I'm not sure what these are, but they're wild and they're nice, whatever they are.
