Fearless Roxy the Boston Terrier

Attention East Cape residents. You may not know this but there are loose cows out there. One attacked our car the other day. Fortunately, our dog Roxy protected us. Watch the video as Fearless Roxy saves us with a ferocious bark!

Los Barriles in the Rain

The rain has stopped for now but there is still quite a system out there to our East and North. Maybe it will go up and clobber San Diego; they need some rain.

When the state rebuilt the road in downtown Los Barriles, it was designed to operate as the city's storm drain. Seeing as how there was storm water that was trying to drain, Donna and I went to check it out. Looks like their project is working as advertised! The first part of the video shows us driving through town on the "drainage" route to the ocean. The second part is about an hour later, after a short stop at Los Pescadores hotel to harass a friend, we drive back to check the water level downtown. Remember when LB was a giant mudhole after an average rain? This is way better. When I'm king, I'll fix the sidewalk problem...

Guitar Lust Pt. 3

It's all done.  Mike finished the paint. Complete with clear coat and pearl finish. I had some nice hot Seymour Duncans out of another guitar that I don't play. It has straight wiring without the extra switches that the Jaguars and Jazzmasters used. Also the tone knob balances between the 2 pickups instead of rolling off the highs. The Fretworks in Portland put it all together and I have it. Plays well and sounds good. Now we just have to become friends.

Gotta give my bro-in-law Mike special thanks for the paint job. He spent a lot of time on it and it's perfect.
