I know, I know,  I don't post enough lately.  -  i blame 75% of it on the ease of Facebook.  But I must own the other 25% of it, which is sadly - I am extremely busy, and time is my main issue nowadays.

so here is a smattering of photos, I'll try to caption each

Saul does not "DO" sports.  Neither did I, Neither did my dad.  BUT!  from no where, he told me "I dream of throwing a football with you dad"    I am not one to say no.  SO?  he has been playing in the neighborhood park.  What a happy fellow!

Tia Julia is getting into Falconry, her mentor brought a bunch of birds to the park,  here is Saul petting a great horned owl.

Because? any kid can get home from school in a minivan - Saul goes for the thunder!

For my health, I've been walking every morning.  We go to the neighborhood schoolyard/park during our travels.  Penny is offended that these Geese seem to park and poop there.   Penny headed toward them is the lower left black spot!  she is IN MOTION

Big San Jose news, Bass Pro Shop opened by our house.  Saul and I went to the grand opening festivities.  Saul said "Dad, fishing stuff, archery stuff, guns, dog stuff, boats, clothes, candy,  i get it.  this is the toy store for dads"

Our lad is a HUGE fan of 'graphic novels' - I do not think they stretch his vocabulary or brain.  Sure, I bought him lots of Calvin & Hobbes anthologies, but he also likes Big Nate and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.   SO?   I ordered 14 1920's 1930's era "boys adventure books" from a seller on eBay.   Saul has to stretch his vocabulary, learn word meaning from context "Bomba the jungle boy was basking in the approbation of the white hunters"     and?  we have to talk about political correctness.  What was okay then, but is not okay now.   But still we understand it.  (WINNING)

on Halloween, our neighbors put on a bit of a big show at their home.  And it freaks Saul out.  He does not want trick or treating. he does not want to go outside.  He wanted to stay in, stay warm, and watch Tee Vee.   I allowed him.  We watched the David Niven "Around the World in 80 Days" -  brilliant actually.   And I let Saul borrow my Pith Helmet.

Sunday mornings, I go riding at Metcalf.  It's my activity, gym, exertion, and motorcycle time.  This is one of the creekside trails, with a selfie!
