donated to us by my parents. Of course we pitched the tent to make
sure all was well, only to find a rubber bat and lizard (not pictured)
kindly left behind by the practical jokesters of the family.

had planned to watch as it disappeared into the ocean but it isn't
setting where it did a few months ago, reminding is that the coastline
runs east/west through Ventura County, not north/south. In short, when
we look out over the ocean we're actually looking south, not west. It
was spectacular nevertheless watching as the sun creeped down on the
Pacific Coast Highway.

office working 8-5 (in theory) which is so different from my usual
12-9. Usually I get up in the morning and get a ride in before work
but I can never seem to exercise in the evening - So here I sit at
7:30 Friday night thumbing through the Dirt Rag that just arrived
today when I could probably be out riding!

so many times it's the people you work with, not the job itself, that
can make work so enjoyable. I like my job but people like Liz make my
day all the more enjoyable, even if I only have time to talk for a few
minutes in the break room with her from time to time.

cameras, computer peripherals, software and bike upgrades - Donna gets
excited about the little things. I was reminded of this when she
darted for the dollar section at the under-construction Target in
Thousand Oaks. Kind of reminded me of a kid in a candy store!

an editor, Donna has finally realized that photography, not a pen and
notepad, is "where it's at." She seems to have a blast shooting photos
but them it's up to me to download them, edit, crop, color correct etc
- lots of fun after a week of picture editing!

so it was almost painful to watch as Donna broke out the map book to
show me the locations on a few houses she spotted for sale in
Camarillo. Funny how times change. Why use an index to look up a
street when google maps will map the street and exact house number and
even offer an aerial image?

We get to be cool aunt Donna and uncle Ray. Donna's sister was kind
enough to send us some 8X10 photos of Joey and Maggie and what better
place for such photos than framed above the fireplace.
with bananas or cold cereal, and this is a good thing. With Donna's
dad in town we started the day with a late breakfast at Eggs-n-Things,
home to the best blueberry pancakes and huevos rancheros!

looks forward to. They call it the June Gloom and it appears to have
arrived early this year. Just imagine a thick layer of clouds blocking
our view of the sunny blue skies for an entire month! Yuck.
share a three bedroom, two bathroom home, it's amazing how much you
get used to having your own space. Throw a third person into the mix
and it really throws me off - imagine what two or three kids would do
