Somewhere in The Antelope Valley

Upright and breathing. Good thing.

A Sunny Day in Cal City

Posted by retiredpo1 on 02/14/2010

New solar sidewalk lights

I put in the solar ones today, as it was a fabulously sunny and warm day here in the Desert.

The Patio!

The Patio at the Casa de Sharon y Glenn. The BBQ got a work out later in the day. Filet Mignons and Lobster Tails for dinner. OH MY! 8)

I can’t call it the┬áVeranda, as my buddy Buck at Exile in Portales already has that covered.

Looking north

The Tehachapi Mountains near the Red Rock Canyon State Park. It is a short drive from here. Ain’t the desert pretty in the sunshine? ­čśë

Been like this since last night. Winter in the Mojave Desert/Antelope Valley, ya know.

Rotten weather in the Desert!

Posted by retiredpo1 on 01/18/2010

UPDATE: The system that came through today is one of five according to the local out of Bakersfield!

47 with light rain showers and wind. At least it is better than the surrounding mountains. They have winter storm warnings for later today and tonight. Yeah, it snows in the mountains here in the High Desert.

Got a Mythbusters Marathon on Discovery to help out. I am getting tired of the Michelle Obammystain PSA for Haiti, though. I know about the earthquake, already. Don’t beat me up over it.

New one on the blogroll

Posted by retiredpo1 on 01/10/2010

The Regiment. It is a patriotic and conservative networking, blogging and social site. It is new but the idea is good. It is to the right in alphabetical order. Get on board and see what we may be able to do. I am listed as Desert Airdale.

Still here

Posted by retiredpo1 on 01/08/2010

Not an overly interesting week here in Cal City and at Edwards. We went to Tehachapi for the Missus’ feet but that was done with by 11 AM. It was my RDO, so every other Thursday is a day off. It is a civil service schedule thing.

I did watch the Ducks-Blues and parts of Redwings at the Kings last night. But I also had to hit The First 48 on A&E.  Plus early to bed to get up early for work this AM. This is being typed as my coffee maker finishes up. Fill thermos and take off for work.

And I did not watch the mythical football championship last night. Waste of time.
