Sunny San Diego

I find myself in lovely sunny San Diego, visiting my friend Suzy.  I've been taking some pictures here and there and figured I'd just spew them out right here.

The first batch is at Barona Indian Reservation where we went to the casino to eat and gamble.  They have lovely grounds there and some interesting sculptures.

This is one of many small planes we watched take off from Gillespie Field.  We were waiting for the Trolley into San Diego.  Isn't the blue sky just gorgeous?

Ankles, Inversions and Life

Hi all,

I managed to fall during recess duty last week and sprained my ankle.  The interesting part of this story is that the x-rays showed I had previously broken the ankle.  I had no idea.

Most of January and February so far have been full of inversion.  That means cold air gets trapped in our valley and pollution builds up.  It wreaks havoc on my sinuses, but hopefully it'll go away and stay away soon.

Life in general is going well here.  My bathroom is going to be finished on Saturday (there were repairs needed from a leak upstairs).  I have parent-teacher conferences in a couple of weeks.  I'll be going out of town before that, though.  I'm heading to San Diego to see my friend Suzy's new place.  It'll be a well-deserved break.

That's about it from here.  Kind of ho hum at the moment.
