I participated in Maintenance Day at my son’s school over the weekend. An obligation I had signed up for, not knowing what to expect but not being overly thrilled with the idea of deep cleaning a preschool classroom. To my pleasure I arrived to chewy Quaker granola bars and all smiles from the teachers and other parents. My tasks were not at all what I had imagined. Changing light bulbs, cleaning fish tanks, hanging a paper maché hammerhead shark, repainting a chalkboard sign, and the last job being the cake on top. Drawing with chalk on the playground tricycle garage.

Yucaipa California Love.

September 13, 2015

My family and I purchased a home in Yucaipa about 2 years ago. Not only have we been blessed with a creative, family orientated (or, oriented) community atmosphere. We also scored hard with some of the friendliest neighbors anyone could ask for. This post goes out to our neighbors; and all neighbors, everywhere.  

The other day my neighbor asked me if we liked sweet potatoes. Yes! I replied. Take as many as you’d like he said, they’re just on the other side of the fence. 

As I walked into the gate this is what I saw

Photography

May 13, 2015

Lately, my eldest son has been very interested in photography. He has continuously asked to use my phone to take pictures. Most of them are blurry, but he always gets a good one. The thing I like the best is when he shows them to me, he explains what he likes about them. “This is my pants dad, but look at the rug. Doesn’t it look cool Dad!” I am always amazed and proud at how observant he is, and how he seems to have an understanding of his photos. Here is his pants picture, followed by photos that he told me to take:

Ma, Rare Earth

May 10, 2015

To all the mothers! If you haven’t heard of the band, Rare Earth, please check them out. I can’t describe how awesome they are. My wife and I have a second hand store we frequent for records. This one day we didn’t see anything we recognized so we each bought a record solely on the cover art. My wife chose a green and black cover of stylized face with glasses on and I chose an album of a black line drawing of a naked fat woman riding a small rocking horse. After we had purchased them and were sitting in our car we discovered they were the same band! Rare Earth.

This album is dedicated to Ma. This post is dedicated to Ma, and this day is dedicated to Ma. Mom, I love you!

Sometimes my team wins. Sometimes they lose. The results are important, but they aren’t the reason why I am a supporter. Fight for our life!
