One Mother of a Day!


As you can see in the photo below, here in Pasadena it’s not gonna be one of those perfect weather days you’ve been to led to believe we have nearly everyday as you watch from afar, on your TV, our Tournament of Roses Parade or Bowl football game. You know – the perfect weather – with the snow capped San Gabriel mountains of the Angelus National Forest the crowning the Valley below.

Nope. The weather looks – and feels – threatening.   I’ve written before about our unpredictable weather.  We’re gonna have to hunker down to shield us from the elements of mother nature.  Sure, in this kinda weather you wanna be sure to protect the sick & elderly, the women & children, the hiker & retiree, but especially the most valuable member of your families (if you’re fortunate to have one) – the canines! 

If we’re lucky and brave to dare go outside, take an umbrella because this weather should still yield us some photo opportunities.  Nevertheless, my friends, I may not always stay inside during the weekend, but when I do, it’s on day like today.

It’s turning out to be one mother of a day!  Pray we all survive it.


Gotta Be Cool!  Stay Thirsty My Friends

Pasadena Greetings


In Memoriam

This says it just about right…


It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion;
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press;
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech;
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble;
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial; 
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote;
It is the VETERAN
, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag.

~~Father Dennis Edward O’Brien, Lt. Colonel. USMC








From Pasadena, California we give thanks & salute those soldiers who served – and paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives – for We The People of the USA: Fathers, Mothers, Sisters, Brothers, Cousins, Grandparents, Family Relatives, Friends, and those Unknown Soldiers to us. On this Memorial Day, at the very least, we should all remember them.




Gotta Honor & Salute. Stay Thirsty My Friends
