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 theĀ Veranda, 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? šŸ˜‰

Condors Maybe?

I had to go to the Doctor in Tehachapi for a check up and meet & greet with the clinic we picked. I took the trusty old Z612 from Kodak.

The birds in the last one are two of about 40 or so that were circling over our part of town. I want to say they are condors of some kind. I have no idea but they looked neat.

Taken on Saturday morning on the way to work.


The mountains and the desert. Buck should be familiar with a couple of these shots!
