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 was on a camping trip that lasted one day. Heat stroke sent me packing it all up. I know it was well over one hundred degrees at our camping site on Mount Shasta. So, after continually drinking mostly water I drove back home. I was feeling completely drained. No energy, some mild confusion and just wanting it to be all over. And so it was and is six hundred miles later. To quote Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, "It's so good to be home." This photo represents how I felt; worn out, tired, and pretty much useless.

Best wishes to everyone on this site from Seattle. I'm still cycling upright. But, my comfortable riding time and distance seems to be on the cautious downhill minus y slope No, wait. I didn't really mean THAT. Upright on the bicycle with rubber on the road is what I meant.

I gave myself a little assignment today. Walk to the beach to Lincoln Park a couple of miles to the west and take a few snaps of the rearranged driftwood from last week's high high tide, aka a king tide. That's all, folks.

Okay, for those who aren't on Facebook, here's a recent photo of yours truly. It was taken a couple of days ago by a pretty passerby that I snagged to take the photo. I didn't ask her for her name, though, because I'm well past that sort of thing (grin). A thank you was enough. Still, maybe I should have ask her ... Oh, well. It's too late now.

This is Giuliana Tribuzio. This photo was taken in France about 3 years ago. I loaned her a bike the previous Summer and she rode it from Seaside, Oregon to San Diego, CA. where she boarded a plane back to Europe. She shipped the bike back to me before she departed. I loved this photo the minute I saw it It should be a painting. I know it's been a long time since I have posted anything here. But, truthfully, I had forgotten how to do it. Cheers ...

Happy Birthday, Marcus.

I think we're all still reeling from Ron's passing. It's hard to grasp that another of our own family has passed. R.I.P., Ron. We all miss you.

Happy Thursday Birthday, Ron. Somehow I've lost you on Facebook. I sometimes see your lovely wife, Diana, but you've been less than a mirage for months and months now. I know I had some hacking difficulties awhile back, but I have been back for some time now. Again, best wishes for this coming Thursday.

I wish you a happy belated birthday, Jim.

I'm saddened to read this.  I remember Elizabeth as a nearby Canyon Rim neighbor during elementary school.  For those who do not know, Elizabeth tested out very high in intelligence in the sixth grade.  If I remember right she squelched out the then heretofore high scorer when she was able to take the testing a day or two after the rest of were given the opportunity to show our "smartness" stuff.  Bless her heart and may she be well remembered.

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

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.
