Monterey is definitely a cool town. That path along side the ocean is wonderful, but I've never taken my bike when I've gone. I'll definitely have to do that if I'm going to leave California.

Spent our Thanksgiving with family and enjoyed what was a beautiful day here... the girls seemed to have spent the afternoon on the trampoline.

My wife became a mom as well as an aunt and a great aunt when she married me... she is handling it well as she loves kids and she already has many small fans.

After nearly 6 years together there is not a moment I do not look at her and think... "wow".



Guarding our youngest great niece as she is still too small to bounce with the big girls...



And that turkey... yes... it was wrapped in bacon.

I saw this bike on the local bike shop ride the other day. I've seen some bikes with compasses here, but this would be the first thermostat.

Love the stem cap Thermometer, very useful in the fall and winter as temps approach the freezing mark.

My youngest (on the left) preparing for the beginning of his High School's Homecoming. He recently earned a place on the Jr. ROTC Marine Corp Color Guard.

Cool. Crop out the sill and yikes, pretty terrifying.

I know. That's cool. But kind of creepy. The way that tiger is looking at your little girl. Yeekes.

I'm affraid the photo is not mine. But I thought of you in C&V as you were talking obout them a few posts back. And when I saw it in a Spanish Bike Forum, I couldn't resist.

Seems like they're becoming a trend... Never noticed them before...

Hey! Is that MOBOT? I think I recognize those japanese black pines on the lake shore. I spent a beautiful rainy afternoon there when I was attending a conference in St. Louis back in 2000. If not, guess I'm wrong! Great photo and lovely bike, btw...I'm amazed they let bikes into the gardens. That's pretty cool.

Nope. Chicago. There's a bike path that goes through the CBG but you can't ride around in the garden itself. They do provide lots of good bike racks though, for those who want to get off and walk around. It's the way to go as the garden doesn't charge an admission fee per se, only a parking fee (for cars).
