I spent the day remembering the past and thinking of the future.

It’s a work of love to go through thousands of photos to find just the right ones. You see so many other other people that are also gone. I knew it would be a labor of love and actually couldn’t even start the project for the first few days; still in denial I guess.

And Sheryl pointed out I included one image that was Tony, not Daniel. Whoops :-)

And I also gave in to a couple of hours of browsing motorcycles. 3 of us 4 brothers ride; well, now 2. So you can see where that goes.

If I actually take the full weekend of training, including Friday evening, and enjoy the 12 hours of on-bike training, well, then, that could be very rewarding. If not, at least I tried.

Here are links to a video collage and a still photo slide show I created to honor Daniel’s life.

Glorious Skies for Danielhttp://www.allthepages.org/archives/2014/04/glorious-skies-for-daniel/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=glorious-skies-for-daniel http://www.allthepages.org/archives/2014/04/glorious-skies-for-daniel/#comments Sun, 13 Apr 2014 03:59:03 +0000 http://www.allthepages.org/?p=2310 Read More...

Some of us met up at Coronado Heights for an informal celebration of our brother, father, uncle and friend, Daniel.

The Kansas skies cooperated with a very nice show, ranging from rain, lightning, magnificent clouds and a nice sunset.

Tears were shed, smiles were shared and laughter was heard. It was as Daniel would have wanted and expected.

And while at a certain age one accepts the inevitable as it applies to older relatives, no one is prepared for the loss of a sibling, or of any person younger than one’s age. And true also that for the first time since 1966 us kids are no longer all here, the thought of which only compounds the loss. But no tears of regret. We 6 (later 7) always tried to get together whenever we could, and often succeeded at Thanksgiving and at May Day (All School’s Day) at mom/Steven’s in McPherson. For those memories we’re all grateful.

My heart is heavy as I mourn the loss of of my (big!) little brother. We’re almost home, and yesterday drove without stopping for pictures. I did manage to grab a few a couple of days ago.

Big River Bike Ridehttp://www.allthepages.org/archives/2014/04/big-river-bike-ride/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=big-river-bike-ride http://www.allthepages.org/archives/2014/04/big-river-bike-ride/#comments Wed, 09 Apr 2014 03:41:29 +0000 http://www.allthepages.org/?p=2300 Read More...

An old logging road runs along side the north side of the Big River, south of Mendocino. The road has been converted for use as a hiking and biking trail, and I ventured almost 5 miles in today. It was a fun ride, not very hilly, and while more suited to a mountain or trail bike, my carbon Felt road bike did just fine.

If you roll your mouse over photos 4 and 5 below you will see a photo of the informational sign that was posted near the scene.

One of my favorite places to visit is the northern California coast near Mendocino. We’ve stayed up here many times, and always enjoy our visits. We’re staying in a new place this trip as one of our former favorite spots, the Seafoam Lodge, has gone out of business. Little River is almost next door to Seafoam, so we’re still in the general area.

However, I think I like it here even better. Check out the view from our front porch! I told Sheryl the apocalypse could happen and I’d be glad to ride things out from here. She said that’s fine, for two weeks, but after that we’d be out of coffee.

Our day began a little differently than originally planned. I had to make an urgent call for help to Triple Ace Auto Glass in Redwood City. The day before we found a large crack in our windshield, and wanted to get it repaired before driving any distance. Triple Ace came through, working with our insurance for reimbursement, and having us on the road by noon!

The first image below is a composite of two images showing the crack from two different perspectives.

We spent our 40th wedding anniversary as we spent many others in the past, by spending a day in the Monterey Bay area.

We began with a lunch of Dungeness crab salad at Phil’s in Moss Landing and later in the day drove 17 Mile Drive down to Carmel.

Beautiful day, beautiful weather and best of all I got to spend it with my constant companion for the past 40 years, my lovely wife Sheryl.

Here are a few photos I took during the day, including a couple from 17 Mile Drive and one from Carmel. The bird photos were taken north of Phil’s and the flowers in Pacific Grove.

We spent some time relaxing at Baylands Park in Palo Alto today around sunset. Tomorrow begins a hard, intense week at work, as I combine the rigors of travel with the intensity of a new, blazing-hot project. Adding to the mix, we’re going on a two week vacation beginning next Monday. It’s fun and exciting, but won’t leave much time for taking pictures during the week.

It’s early in the season, and it was cloudy today, but the flowers at the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden in Palo Alto are colorful enough to brighten any day!
