Morro Bay, day 4

Labor Day. Up early again and did more reading of The Reagan Diaries. After Dan and Megan got up, we had a quick breakfast and then headed into San Luis Obispo and wandered around the town. The weather was gorgeous but surprisingly few people were out. We had lunch downtown and then headed back to […]

Morro Bay, day 3

I woke up early in the morning and I was sick. A full-blown cold with “extras”, the extras being things like fever and chills. It was in the upper 80s in Morro Bay and I wasn’t going to allow something as annoying as a cold to ruin my weekend so I sucked it up. We […]

Morro Bay, day 2

[Written on 9/4/2007] I was up at about 7 AM. I had started The Reagan Diaries on the plane yesterday and continued reading it this morning until Dan and Megan were up. I figured that I’m so biased against Reagan as a president that I needed to read something that might alter my opinion of […]

Morro Bay day 1

Long day. I was up at 4 am eastern time. My flight to LAX left ontime and was uneventful. We even got in a little early. I picked up my rental car from Hert and headed to the Santa Monica office to visit some friends there. I spent about an hour there and then headed […]

Long Labor Day weekend

I’m already looking forward to my long Labor Day weekend, which starts tomorrow. I have a 6:30 AM flight to LAX, followed by a 3 hour-ish drive up to Morro Bay. I’ll be spending just about 3 full days with Dan and Megan and I can’t wait. The last time I saw them was nearly […]

To Morro Bay for Labor Day!

It’s official! I’m heading up to Morro Bay, California for an extended Labor Day weekend with Dan and Megan. I used a credit I had with United for a previously canceled ticket. I fly to L.A. very early on the morning of Friday, August 31, and return on the red eye the night of Monday, […]

Happy Birthday, Megan!

Today is Megan’s birthday and so a hearty happy birthday is in order: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MEGAN! I have now known Megan for nearly 15 years (which is close to half her life) and she is one of the nicest, sweetest people I have ever met. She reminds me of a dark-haired Meg Ryan, and Dan, […]

Morro Bay, Day 2

Details coming soon. With all of this travel, I am still trying to catch up. The day began with a short walk, followed by a yummy breakfast. I had a “scramble” which included bacon, cheese and eggs, all mixed and mashed together. Also some potatoes. Very tasty. That was followed by a traditional walk out […]

Morro Bay, Day 1

I got into LAX ontime last night, picked up my car from Hertz (a Chevy Impala, very big, blue, with a nav unit) and got to Mom and Dad’s in Oxnard just before 11 PM. I was pretty tired so I went right to sleep, and I was up at 6:30 AM this morning, after […]


It was approximately 16 years ago today that I first met Dan and Shannon and Rich and Tricia, when I moved into the D1-East hall of the Aberdeen-Inverness dorm at U. C. Riverside. If I was a newborn on the day that we all met, I would be about to get my drivers license today! […]

To Los Angeles!

I haven’t been to visit Dan and Megan for a while now and so I decided to check the fares on United from Baltimore to LAX. Over the summer they’d been pretty outrageous. So I checked and round-trip fares are currently $218! I called Dan and asked if I could come out the weekend of […]
