Ginger – Breakfast at Denny’s.

Breakfast at Denny’s – Ginger, immersed in her phone.

Packed and Ready to go – The Bishop’s staff were delivering the second of two training events for new vestry and church leaders this Saturday morning. Like most meetings nowadays, it was on Zoom. I got to be slide master, and we all gave 10-minute talks to introduce ourselves and let the folks know how we can help them. As soon as we’d finished delivering the morning’s training I was ready to get changed and head out of here! Two-minute read.

An evening visitor and more clumsiness – I was sitting in my hammock thinking about preparing dinner when I felt some water splash on my foot. It was raining hard, but I was nice and dry, and I thought it a bit odd. I bent down to investigate and spotted this little peeper, who’d hopped in to join me sheltering from the rain.

There go my backpacking plans – Things started to get a bit surreal as it dawned on me that I was the “Cardiac Emergency” just announced on the hospital PA system. Five-minute read, 2 pictures

The Hunchback of Hercules – While hiking west on the Pilot (Tower) Trail to the bluffs I was caught by a thunderstorm. Finally a real chance to try out my rain poncho! It worked fine, but with the temperatures up in the mid eighties it was hot and humid with it on. One-minute read, 2 pictures

Too good not to share – Today I received a couple of phone calls … from myself. I wonder which of my many clones it was.

Family Barbeque. Blended families produce large extended families. And that’s great! Today we were gathered for a barbeque for Mikki and Kyoka who arrived early this morning from Japan.

A nice, simple project. I made three cellphone stands, one for Ginger, one for my nightstand and one for my desk. It took a couple of prototypes to get the depth just right so that the fingerprint sensor can still be used without the phone falling out of the rest.
