The food was fine, the prices high, the service slow, and the restrooms dirty.

Cooper introduced a new level of fun - he did not bring any proper shoes. He did have his sandals that he wore in the van. After some convincing he said he could make it through with his socks and sandals.
We were blessed that the predicted 3 inches of rain never came.
We had a great day with our friends.

If his team wins both games next week they will be number one in the league and will go on to play in the regionals.

This year our family participated in the Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk in downtown Los Angeles. Our team had 7 members including my mom, Kerry and the boys, and Natalie and her friend. The walk was billed as a 2 mile walk through downtown to raise money and awareness of Alzheimer's. We had a great time together. More pictures
We've had our share of wildlife in our area. The hummingbirds are in our garden all year long, and other creatures come and go throughout the year. Last week we had some very bold and very unwanted guests just outside our dinning room window. They, like the hummingbirds, seem to enjoy the pineapple sage.
The bush is going now. Sorry birds.

We took a quick ride up to the lake this morning to see the water dropping planes skim across the lake. It was amazing. The fires are all burning away from GTY and our house, but homes in other areas are in danger.

Campbell's game this morning was at 7:30am. He had to be on the field by 7:00am. Campbell played well this morning, and was a great defender.
One of Campbell's team mates is an amazing player; today while playing goal keeper, he faked like he was going to punt the ball, but dropped it and took it all the way across the field and scored against the number one team. This is not unusual, he does this about once a game.
Cooper's game is later this afternoon.

It was repaired and then 2 hours later it died again. As I left for the day it was all back and happy again.
Let's hope for joy through the night.

Had lunch with America's leading Pyromaniac and spouse at Hell's Kitchen. They bill themselves as having 'the best damn food'. Phil noticed that many of their offerings feature pears. Is this a nod to the current thought that the forbidden fruit was not an apple but a pear.
This sandwich shop is visible from the table Mary Tyler Moore sat at in the opening of her show. The courtyard between the buildings has been enclosed to keep out the elements - but a huge rain fountain from 6 floors up splashes down.
Minneapolis she's some beautiful.

Great low tides, wonderful weather the perfect camp site.
The boys have loved running in the surf and riding their boogie boards.
And keeping with our family's tradition, we are leaving a day early. We had to make our camping plans 6 months ago - once again something has come up requiring us to return early.
Next year we'll try to stay the whole time.

After about 5 minutes all that was left was the soggy chasis of someones vacation - and the odd smell of burned plastic.

We wanted ribs, so we did eat. And how we ate. Best ribs I've had: great dry rub, cooked over oak charcoal. Other than the don't-go-there-after-dark neighborhood, it was perfect.
If I'm in Memphis with the family in the future, I'd bring them here.

Someone writing with a red pen has commented, 'I will not touch Dan Dumas'. I concure with the red writer.
I think the oringinal sign poster was Dan Dumas, and he is asking everyone not to touch the stack of boxes.
I think the red writer may have recently read a punctuation book by Lynne Truss.
