Comments:

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.

Buried in snow, March 2013 a few months before we fled to San Francisco. Now you know why! Just kidding. We still own the house and no doubt will be headed back to snow at some point.

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.

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.

Testing. Yours truly bicycle touring the Oregon Coast. I think this was taken at Depoe Bay, Oregon,October, 2016. Yes, it was at Depoe Bay where whales were in plain view right off the road.

Somehow, I thought there was some sort of relationship here. The sign was on an entryway gate to a house in Georgetown, Washington, D.C. The tadpoles on the other hand were in Tipsoo Lake, near Sunrise at Mount Rainier National Park. Is there a relationship here? Hm-m. I guess, not really.

This docile doe was resting just off the campus of Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., April, 2016. They're a common site around these parts according to my aunt living nearby the campus.

My new, but used, full carbon road bicycle. Looks new to me, so I bought it from a friend who seldom rode this bike. She was afraid of crashing it and hurting herself.

Chihuly Glass Museum, Seattle Center. Also, July 16, 2016 snap taken enroute to Portland, Oregon from Seattle. Yep, I made it once more, but no guarantees for next year (grin).

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.
