    Sights of the Central Valley: Square trees, stockyards and soft serve

    Mick and I took Lance the travel trailer on another trek upstate recently, which necessitated a trip to the Central Valley, and I must say, there are a lot of interesting things on the way to Kettleman City and Sacramento (there aren’t really, but I’ve got to do major positive self...

    To everything there is a season…

    Spring has arrived once again on the Central Coast! The hills are finally green, the veggies are planted, the birds are twitterpated and we’re on the cusp of rock ’n’ roll season.

    Considering fitness

    I just had another birthday, dammit, and with my seventh decade not too far down the trail, I’ve been contemplating a few things I might like to do before I get too stiff to get off the couch.

    In my experience, if you don’t get LOLs (little old ladies) off their butts once in awhile, they get stoveup, and I felt that the Old People Camp girls were spending way too much time in the craft shack throwing back shots and bagging on their children.

    Balloon adventure anything but a bust

    We pulled in to fill up with $5 a gallon gas in a remote, no on-ramp station, and as the pump cha-chinged, the nearly toothless proprietor ambled over to chat. His overalls smacked of too many ancient, greasy Fords, but he was a friendly guy. We were his sole customers and had ended up in his Route...

    On the road with Thelma, Louise and Sally

    Thelma, Louise and Sally recently took a road trip. Louise and Sally, my geezer soul sisters, consented rather impetuously, to accompany me (Thelma) on a little jaunt with Lance, the travel trailer. Three anonymous, mature women in the wilds of Oregon — an adventure in the making.

    We apologize for the previous

    As evidenced by my previous columns on doughnuts and eyebrows, it’s obvious that coming up with a scintillating topic for a kick-butt column is not as easy as one might think. So, I decided that today I would take the coward’s way out and just spend time commenting on and apologizing...
