A QUICK TRIP

A bag from California Coast Credit Union that I picked up somewhere.  I THOUGHT it was reusable, but it did not survive the first use.  And no, it is not a picture of an iceberg!


Saw this on a quick trip to Buckman Springs to lend a hand and a ladder (my new Little Giant!)  to grab a geocache.  A photographer I ran across told me about this painting.


The drive home, #1.


The drive home, #2

The Rest Of November

Yikes, it is December already!  I'll have to backdate this post!

This was Super Moon Sunday, November 13th.

Here we are looking west at the sun set.  I do not know why I posted two pictures that looked almost identical, so stop asking.





Also, you MAY have seen these on Facebook. If they look familiar.  Or if you are like me, you can't remember, and they look new.  It's a wonder.

Some islands to the south or so, in Mexico.


That Super Moon rising.








On the way to Monument Peak on November 15, 2016.  I took this, facing backwards on the trail, to note which way I had come.  So I don't get lost going back!



This was at a caching location on November 16th.  The hint was something about a tire. Or something.  Is this a tire?


Now, HERE'S a tire, about three hundred feet away.  Maybe someone finally put it in the trash area?


November 19th on Kwaay Paay, with Abel, who took the picture for me.  Two peaks down, three to go!


November 20th at a cemetery in Alpine.  Always interesting learning about these little-known locations and the pioneers buried there.


November 22nd on Mt. Soledad, after checking out a book at the library down in the village of La Jolla.


There's a cache on that ridge.  It was too scary for me to find.


Thanksgiving is November 24th, right?  Here is what I ate!


Is there pie under there?


At the tractor museum in Vista, with Phil, on November 25th.







Is this where the band got their name?


This giant apartment building/complex, of which this is only a small section, reminded me of my fascination, in my youth, with arcologies.


Looking towards El Capitan dam on November 26th.


Peacocks.  Wild?  Native?  I think not.


Starting to rain, passing runway 17 at Gillespie Field.


In Mast Park, Santee, on November 29th.  As I said on the FB, this does not bode well...



I am standing on a dam on a horse path in San Diego County Estates to get this crummy picture on November 30th.


The Stanley FatMax Extreme 35 foot tape measure extended to 12.5 feet.  Be amazed!



That is about all I got for this month, it is DONE!

What Month IS This?

Honestly, I can't keep track of what month it is!  I was surprised when it turned out to be November already!  Better get them October pics posted, and might as well do the November ones to date, also!


Hiking to road down to Descanso Pump #4


View from old highway 80 to the east.  Kinda drizzly!


Driving back on interstate 8, to the west.  Pt. Loma in the distance.


Still driving to the west, still Pt. Loma in the distance.



A boat full of muggles seen while geocaching on Harbor Island in San Diego bay.



Trying to get an artistic shot of an airliner taking off, at Pizza Port in OB.



Just potato soup he said.  Very yummy!



 Second to find at a puzzle geocache in Missing Valley...



Something is wrong here.  I cannot quite put my finger on it...



At the Antique Gas & Steam Museum in Vista.  A speed governor.


A Sno Cat!  Probably doesn't get a lot of use around here!



My question is, still, what are the two sparking plugs for on this diesel engine?



Well, I guess it's too late to elect Giant Meteor.  Sad.



Election Night 2016.



Pretty windy at Mt. Soledad today.




That's about all I got, thanks for reading!

A Sort Of Round Up

I went for a bike ride today, so I posted over on the bike blog, too.  All the pictures of the trip (not that many!) are there.  Most of these may have been seen on Facebook.

This is from the other day, I heard a tap tap tapping at my, uh, tree, and there it is.  It looks like a Nuttall's Woodpecker to me!




This piece of plywood used to be on the little house, the door, it was.  I thought I better take a picture of it before I toss it.  It says "The Baseball Club".



An almost up to date list of how many books I've in the last almost twenty years, I guess.



On my trip to Arizona I completed "1" geo-art...




In the Reddit forum Health Inspectors of Reddit, what's the worst violation you've ever seen?
user Poem_for_your_sprog submitted this creation:


It was in response to another user telling the tale of the cow-licking-the-bread incident during a health inspection at the bakery his father worked at.


I was parked in Santee the other day and saw this Jeep with a snorkel on it.  I hope their radio is waterproofed.




Well, that is about all I got.  Don't forget to check out the bicycle rantings page!
