HEART-BREAKER





Yes, I'm probably biased, but this little guy (my grandson), about to turn four years old, has the dreamiest face in the world.


COMING UP SIX YEARS AGO






This is one of the first posts on this blog, from a trip to Ketchum, Idaho in August 2010.

Room 206, Sun Valley Lodge.

Hemingway called it "Glamour House."

It was his favorite hideaway from 1939 onward.

MONTECITO MENACE # 1





Begging to support his brown-bag habit.

(This is the cretin, Gordon from Chicago, who stalks a female in a local shop and who commits assault & battery with apparent immunity because the cops are too busy hiding behind stop signs for the issuance of tickets and revenue collection.)

THAT OTHER MONTECITO MENACE






This is the cretin that paces Coast Village Road hurling obscenities at women and children and spitting at men.

And what do Santa Barbara's police do about it?

Absolutely nothing.

This afternoon I turned it around on him after he tried it on my daughter and grandson.

Like all cowards, he wasn't so happy when someone else was doing the hollering.

A TOAST TO LORENZO (THE BULL, NOT THE MATADOR)







Sometimes the bull's gotta win, even if it's against all odds.

(I'd be mad, too, if I got stuck with swords and was being tortured to death by a guy who dresses like Liberace.  Poetic justice.  A barbaric sport that should be banned.)

LUCKY'S






Excellent Father's Day, full of family and good friends, a great way to launch the summer.

The party never ends.
