It’s been forever since I have posted anything in this blog.  Michele and I are in Cayucos near Moro Bay.  We came down for a long weekend on her spring break.  Oz is loving the beach and long walks.   The town in peaceful and the people are friendly.  I hope the sun starts shining soon.  I hope to post a few pictures later.

Walks with Mom

I have trying to take my mother on daily walks. So far we have been doing pretty well. Here is a Walkmeter link for a typical walk. I am very grateful for the time I get to spend with her and the opportunity I have to be close to her in her waning years.

What’s new

Hi Family – it has been a long time since I have written anything in this blog.  Much has been happening.  My parents, Don and Nancy, have sold all their property on Michigan and are moving in with us.  The plan is to build an in-law unit on the back-end of our house.  At the same time we will install new windows, siding, electrical, plumbing, and roof.  Plans for the addition are slow in development.  We want it to look as part of the house when we do the building.

I am employed as a Program Director with a small start-up in Lafayette.  It is a full time contract to hire until a funding event occurs.  So far so good.  There is a lot of work to do but I am getting back in the saddle at least.

Michele just booked my trip to Florida to see Mary and Colton.  I pray that it is a productive trip.  All for now…

End of the 5 week road trip

Michele and I have been on an extended road trip. It has taken us through 18 states in 5 weeks. We started by going south in Cali down to Sedona AZ, Taos NM, Amarillo TX, Oklahoma City OK, Ft Smith AR, Memphis and Nashville TN, Louisville KY, Farmersville OH, Frankfort MI, Gary IN, Chicago IL, Milwaukee WI, Albert Lea MN, Custer SD, Greybull WY, Caldwell ID, Ashland OR, and back to Walnut Creek, CA. We are going back home tomorrow and should be there sometime in the afternoon. I have been keeping a private daily blog and have not been posting anything here. I will start posting here again as part of a constant content effort on my part. Anyway, the trip was a blast and I hope to do another next year. Stay tuned…
