Click HERE and all the pictures in this chapter will get big.

Me and Cynth on her birthday ski trip. Oh yeah.

The cat barely conceding to share his space with Becky.

Lona and Hartley on the occasion of their 40th Wedding Anniversary. Mazel Tov!

Minori - the local-to-work sushi joint I have been frequenting since even before it was Minori. The guy in the middle owns the place now and the guy in front is a very capable sushi man. The guy in the back is the new kid who cuts cucumber and makes California Rolls.

this rap got lost... and I'm too lazy to rewrite it...

Sunset at my house. (People who have seen this picture say 'oh yea, like that's your house' and I say 'close enough for rock-n-roll so there'.


Who are you lookin' at?

In the yard.


A truly fine driving machine.

what a babe!

Jordan will be three years old in April. Country Girl or City Girl? I love the contrast in these pictures.

When I arrived at the old homestead she was pure country but within minutes she had got herself up in this beautiful dress, ready for the ball.

This is what happens when you try and get four personalities into one shot especially when one of them is a rambunctious puppy, one of them is a two year old who has had it up to here, and two of them are just hoping for the best.

I always choose the picture most flattering to me. Sounds normal.

2 of 4

We've hauled ourselves just about straight up this hill that borders their property behind the house. You can see far into the Santa Clarita valley

Everywhere on the several acres of property are gigantic, glorious California Live Oak fully protected by statute. Boban reports that the neighbors are in fact Live Oak Nazis who sit out at night with binoculars waiting to call the cops on any infraction. Keeping the trees will add to the challenge of building out the property but will add to the glory of the finished project too. They are quite spectacular.

The potential of the property and the amount of work it will take to achieve that potential, well it makes my mind reel. We talked a lot about a master plan and just seeing the route on paper is like having a map when you're in the middle of nowhere.

Hey dog, look this way.

Hana and her friend's daughter who was teaching Japanese in Vietnam.

El Torrito, from the parking lot of Cynthia's restaurant.

this rap got lost too but I'll get it back and cut the glare on the photo while I'm at...

Happy Birthday Cynthia!

Cynthia, Darryl and Angela, having just enjoyed Sunday Brunch at the Odyssey where we ate plates and plates of buffet food.

They're everywhere...

Hi cute kids...

Cynthia took this picture and thought it was HiLarious. Makes me laugh too.

Obviously I can't resist this shot.

Cynthia, Darryl and Angela suiting up for our ski outing at Mountain High. We got the 62 year old Austrian x-Olympian ski bum Hans for most of the day. Cynthia was flying over moguls (Hans to Cynthia: Com'on Com'on Let's Go Now!), Darryl reporting 'he did teach me to ski', Angela, feet together swish swish parallel stops.

At our overnight b&b.

Welcome Sander!

Betsy's coworkers from Rancho.

Family friends from church. See the Wall Of Wisdom - everyone wrote advise on cards and stuck the advise up on the Wall Of Wisdom. This is a scary thing.

Coworkers and family...

Great Grams! 'com'on people now, smile on your brother... you got to love one another right now, right now'.

Helena, Betsy and baby Sander.

Elaine and Marge.

Helena, Betsy and Elaine. Three sisketeers.

Nancy and Helena.

Following is a sushi lunch as presented by a Master.

Oh my god that tv, we're talkin' minimum Fahrenheit 251.

the Bobs.

Mike Goldstein and Judy Siegel. Notice that far away look. These folks are in the middle of moving house. So why not watch the Superbowl for a break?

Lynn and Carole who, in the last 7 seconds of the game decided to watch - just in time to see the winning score.

I came to Carl and Lynn's house looking forward to sharing an afternoon with the gang and without any particular expectations about the game.

Eventually as it became clear the favorites were not going to beat the spread, well, then it got good. All the better if the underdogs would not just beat the spread but Win. That was fun.

Mikey and Alex Kane enjoy the growns-up goof.

Alex and Glen Kane and Adam Siegel. oh yeah, ok, right... is this picture over yet?

Hey it's Carl and Ben. As cute as ever.
