The Pat Furey for Mayor lawn signs are now available! Torrance residents should be aware that in a few months the General Municipal Election during which we will elect a new mayor as Mayor Scotto will term out. As I announced back in June, I am supporting Torrance City Councilman Pat Furey in his bid to be elected Mayor of Torrance. If you would like to join me in supporting Pat Furey for Mayor in 2014 cash donations are always welcomed, but there is another way you can help that costs you nothing and if real estate appraisals are correct, …
I have become aware that I have a lot of new readers, so I will have to stop presuming that you know anything about me. Well, I am a dog person. Naturally, there are cats that I can and have appreciated, but push comes to shove, dogs win every time. I have Buddy. Buddy is a comfort dog and has traveled with me all over the country. He even went to Joplin to offer support to the victims of their tornado strike in 2011. I do not think you will find anyone that could suggest that I am not a …
As I explained a couple days ago, I am now devoting 365 posts on GotBaddog to bringing more awareness to Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RAD) and the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation. It was Tanya’s idea, so it was only natural that I seek her opinion on terminology and phrases that are common in the community. She is a big fan of a blog called RAWarrior, and she read that people in my position should be classified as an RAD Caregiver. I accepted the moniker, but to be honest, I am not really fond of it. “Caregiver” gives the impression that I am …
’Twas a couple weeks before Christmas, when all through the pad We were hanging in the kitchen, for dinner was to be had; The roast was sliced and the wine I did pour, The dogs looking up as if to implore; Please drop some scraps right here on the floor; When out in the street there arose such a clatter, I grabbed my camera and went out to see what was the matter. In the window I saw a red flash,then blue Why the cops were here, I hadn’t a clue.
It is the 73rd day of Project365 2011 and the 14th day of March, or 3.14. Pi. Get it? I never heard of today being called Pi Day before, so I guess Facebook taught me something. My photo of the day is of me getting my daily radiation fix.
Last month, doing Project365 was a little difficult due to my shadow theme and a lack of sunlight. This month, the problem seems to be a lack of clean windows to bounce my photo from. My picture of the day for day 63 of Project365 shows me at the back of a soccer mom’s bus.
I have a feeling this will be an interesting month. Since I take my photo of the day while walking (usually), I never really know how the pic will turn out. My photo for day 61 of Project365 is a perfect example of that. I had to look at it twice to figure out what happened. No matter, I like it.
So, my girlfriend came into town a couple days ago, and I finally got a photo of us together. We had a trade show in Hollywood to attend, and since February is one of the nicer times of the year to go for a motorcycle ride, we took advantage of the weather and beat the traffic by taking the Limited. My photo of the day for day 40 of Project365 is of Tanya and I cruising across I-10 on the way to Hollywood.
For some unknown reason, there seems to be a large contingent of Steelers’ fans that live around here. I always see them with their flags and banners hanging outside their homes. I might see an occasional college team flag in front of someone’s home, but nowhere near the number of Steelers flags. My photo of the day for the 39th day of Project365 is of a decoration that I am sure the homeowner wishes he did not do. I wonder how long it will take his lawn to erase this memory.
This morning as I was walking through the park, I ran into my old friend, E.T. As you can tell by the photo, he is very thin these days and I should have combed my hair. My picture of the day for day 38 of Project365 is of E.T. and me as we walked through the park.
