My roommate is a cat lover. She has one cat named Angel, age 9, who can be not so angelic at times. Angel is also a bit plump, but quite content with his lazy lifestyle. Then one day out of the blue, my roommate says, "I think Angel needs a playmate. Maybe it'll help him lose weight." "Humm...." I said, "As long as you know I want no responsibility of either of them." "He he he he!" said the roommate. (Like she thought I was kidding or something).

Enter Honey:

If that face doesn't warm your heart, I don't know what will.

My Button Box

In honor of my Mothers button box that I used to play with as a child, today I started my very own button box, creatd out of an old tea tin.

Simple things like this make me smile.

Not for the weak at Heart

Just another "Sunday Fun Day"

45 minutes outside of Los Angeles we found ourselves in a war zone. Most of our "enemies" were in the 7-15 age group. AWESOME!!

The Paintball Crew.

Every man for himself.

The vicious women.

Think again before you mess with me.

Davey's Locker

Have you heard of this? If not, you've got to check it out. It offers local deals at a bargain price and it's an awesome way to check out new restaurants and local activities. Such as deep sea fishing at night, of course!


Rocio and I on the ferry over to Balboa Island, Newport Beach.

Balboa Island Ferry Dock.

Rocio was unclear about the rules of fishing. They clearly had to be explained to her.

My first throw I caught a fish!! The majority of the fish caught that night were California Scorpion fish. A delicious to eat fish, but the most venomous found in California. Needless to say, I let the dock help unhook them for me. The fish had to be 10" or longer in order to keep.

Me and my "little poker."

It always pays to make nice with the workers. Free hot chocolate for Rocio and I. I love this photo. It feels like something you might see in an art exhibit.

Two cute girls looking to have some fun on a boat full of men who were a lot more serious about their fishing then we were.

Bate =Squid.


Just when we had given up hope that Rocio was never going to catch a fish, she got one! This was Rocio's only fish for the night. I caught about 10.


Back on shore, the birds were there to clean up after the great slaughter of fish had been cleaned.

Cold and tired, Rocio and I had a great adventure and are looking forward to doing it again.
