RING-A-DING-DING! HO! HO! HO!|
MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2019 was a fast one! We started the year with the Easyriders Show in Sacramento;
always good to look for more bikes to stabel should I win the lottery. The next event was not until a road trip to Boulder Creek over
15,16,17MAR19; this was Lucy's 1st time on the road; we took the coast highway from Pacifica
to Santa Cruz; we stopped at Gorilla Bar-B-Q (BBQ link) for lunch; Lucy's 1st time on the beach, and, Lucy's 1st overnight away from home.
Then there was Willow's Birthday Dinner on 24MAR19... with new born Lulu. Pool was open for
Mother's day eve plung on 11MAY19. Last year Sharon spent her birthday in the horsepiddle, so,
finally on 17MAY19 took her to the The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco de Young Museum to
view art by Monet: The Late Years 1913 to 1926, then to Alioto's Restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf for dinner (Sharon had chipino, of course).
Rusl got his 2nd titanium knee on 26th of August, as you can see - a
different appliance implementation design, even so, both work well; just 6 weeks later Rusl was back working out in the gym and back in karate class.
October 4,5&6th was the Saratoga High School 1969 class 50th Reunion, as it
turned out we actually had a really good time at the reunion and we are looking forward to the next Saratoga High School class reunion.
May 29th was a milestone accomplishment for Rusl; Rusl began studying karate over 50
years ago, and now having recently passed the preceeding 3 mid-term tests, Rusl finally passed the test for 1st Degree Black Belt. Testing included bag work, escapes, forms, weapons (nunchucks), 2, 15,
and 5 continuous rounds of sparing, and, board breaks.

the rest of the summer was spent preparing house for sale, e.g., SunSetter Awning R&R, finishing in
November: road trip to Oregon to see properties
for sale; next year we plan to find and settle into our new home on the Oregon coast... 2019 photos are available on our websites, some on
