A Big Fat Sloppy Thanks!

I've been really isolated the past few months following my "codequest" and I was pleasantly surprised and humbled by all the kind wishes for my birthday this year. Always nice to have someone remember you, so a big wet sloppy "Thank You" to you all!

Lunchwalking...Country Style

Took the time for a lunchwalk down Lake Earl Drive today since I'm heading back to San Francisco tomorrow morning. It was a beautiful Fall day up here and it was very nice getting my head out of the (code) clouds for a while.

By the way, April 29, 2010 will be National Walk@Lunch Day! If you'd like to join me, I'll be lunchwalking from Twin Peaks (the first place I lived when I came to San Francisco) to Glen Park (the last place) with a stop off for lunch at Lucky River Restaurant (Chinese).
Come get your walk on with me next April.

A Special Lunchwallk with the Dude

Today was my birthday and I stayed in because I'm working on a deadline. But around lunchtime the Dude was pretty bored and wanted to get out.

He said something to the effect of " Hey Man, let's roll up to Gold Beach for lunch. It's your birthday!". I probably should have stayed glued to my computer but I decided "Why not?" and grabbed the Dude's leash. "You're drivin'." he panted.

It was a beautiful day on the coast and we took a stop at Whalehead Beach.

I thought we'd drop in to the Porthole Cafe and get a bite. Actually, the Porthole was pretty crowded when we got there. Turistas! And there was no place available to eat outside.

Only then the Dude confessed he didn't have any money. "No pockets!" he muttered. Though he attempted to get me to take him to Nor'Western for some steak.

Dudes with no money get kibble.

We drove up to Humbug State Park and walked along the river and he had some lunch. I didn't get anything until we got back to California.
