I don't have too many pics of myself as I'm usually behind the camera.

Here's me, my mother (in town from New York), two of my sons, and my wife. We're resting after touring a local historical society's museum (Santa Clarita HS and William S. Hart Ranch).

Relaxing during a weekend of pool cleaning after I fixed the return pipes and the skimmer. The pool was full with frogs and uhmm.. unidentifiable mass of sludge since it took me month to get the skimmer ordered and replaced.

But on to the relaxing pic:

Well, this is a pic from work. With RAGBRAI approaching, It's time I start reading BF again. It really helps me get motivated into biking. (Especially since I hate riding my stationary bike.)

I am just starting to get into shape. This was one day when I was bored. My buddy broke his wrist. Boredom and rain equals. Self shots I guess.
