Triumph

The San Francisco Giants Win! The Giants won their third World Series title in five years on Wednesday night. Above, you see Buster Posey, the team’s valiant catcher, my favorite Giant, and owner of the best name in baseball, hugging pitcher Madison Bumgarner, the stoic country boy who is now a hero and a legend.

Testing 1-2-3

You already knew that Megan is the best sister in the world, right? Just for extra proof, as if any were needed, she got up at 5:00 am after working four 12 hour night shifts to drive her pathetic older sister to the county seat in the stormy Saturday darkness. When I was about 14 […]

You Win Some…

It’s birds 2, kitties 0 on today’s scoreboard! Clyde appeared with a bird in his mouth, and I went to take it away from him, surprising both him and the bird and letting it out of Clyde’s mouth. The bird rocketed up into the redwoods to our mutual relief. I had barely recovered from this […]

Limbo

It’s kind of hard to tell you guys what’s going on when I have no idea what’s going on, but here goes: The Cold: Definitely better, but my allergies seem to be picking up the cold’s slack, and I really regret not taking Sudafed before going to work. It’s going to be a long day. […]

Feverish

By the time I got home from the jobette on Tuesday, it was pretty obvious that I had a cold. Because, you know, why not? Maybe my immune system was weakened by stress, along with my ever tenuous mental health. Megan had left some Sudafed* on the table for me, and I thought I had […]

South Coast Adventure

Elk Cove Sunset Just because you’ve lost one job doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep doing the one you still have (at least for now). So Megan and I headed down to the beautiful south coast to distribute jobette related materials. It was a beautiful day, hot by our standards, with not a cloud or a […]

So…

There was a little earthquake this morning as I left for the jobette. Nothing major, just a little reminder that you never know what’s going to happen. The perfect capper for the week I had. I have basically lost my job. You know, the one that pays the bills, keeps my hippie hovel over my […]
