Zero-Eight Foxtrot

Zero-Eight Foxtrot

We recently got a scanner for the office. It is a modern one that runs completely off of the USB port voltage without need for an additional external power source.

I had the above photo hanging in the old office in Torrance until we rescued many of the relics from the house last month. The photo was actually a color print, but the UV from sunlight streaming through the windows for years managed to fade it to a point that I had to recover it in monochrome (sepia in this case) after running it through the scanner.

The photo was taken circa 1976 around the time Nixon was resigning after I had flown a photo shoot for a local photographer. He rewarded me by taking this photo of me hovering in the Hughes 269B helicopter, tail number N9408F “Zero-Eight Foxtrot.” Click on the image to enlarge.

The Dog Park

The Dog Park

The Mama and the Daddy take us to the dog park once in a while. Bay Bay and I love to run around without our leashes on.

The Mama took this picture of us running toward the front gate where another dog was about to come in. We like to meet and greet new dogs when they come to the dog park. Click the picture to make us big.

Daisies

Daisies

In the fall, I like to decorate with the traditional red, orange, yellow and brown colors to match the colors taken by some of the foliage at this time of the year. I got some yellow and orange daisies at the flower shop this week and they are in a vase on the sofa table. Click on the image to enlarge.

Smoker

Smoker

We’re breaking in the new electric smoker this afternoon. Getting it seasoned with mesquite chips/smoke. We have yet to smoke our first entree on this one. Our old charcoal-powered smoker did pretty good, so this one could do as well plus being easier to use and clean. I have some pork and fish in the freezer that will be the first experiments.

Saimin

Saimin

I mentioned a Hawaiian favorite soup to Verna a while back and she made this delicious SAIMIN soup treat for dinner today. This version had chunks of beef, white mushrooms, carrots, red bell peppers, bok choi and Asian noodles. Very tasty! Click on the image to enlarge.

Bear 1999 - 2013

Bear in 2009

Bob was rummaging through the old photos archive and showed me this picture I took of Bear in 2009. She was always a very good family dog and we miss her. She has been gone since April of last year. Click on the image to enlarge.
