fullmoon It’s a big bright full moon that has risen across the eastern sky tonight. The air on the patio is beyond still. There’s a little bit of heat left in the air. The pool’s an almost-inviting 83 degrees.

It still amazes me how we can be surrounded by so many houses (surprisingly, with people living in them!) and it being so quiet and so still on a Friday night. Sitting on the patio with my trusty glass of Pinot Grigio, I couldn’t help but wonder how fast this year is going by. It seems like just yesterday I was sitting in the same chair, in the chill New Year’s Eve air with an equally-chilled glass of Pinot, counting down the minutes until 2010. The full moon glistened on the palm tree branches. All was still. What would the New Year bring, I pondered?

Five months later, the year seems like it has passed in a whirlwind. You wouldn’t recognize the inside of our house, and next Friday I visit my cancer advisor with lots to discuss then, I’ll tell you.

It just goes to show you, you just never know.

Nevertheless, it’s Memorial Day weekend, which, back home, means the start of summer. With that in mind, here’s a great surf tune by the Super Stocks – a great surf/car band circa ’63-’64 – to kick off summer, no matter where you might live. Enjoy!

Pool temp: 83 degrees

  3. An ASUS NJ71Q is the laptop I just got…my PC is like driving a car…this thing is like learning to fly an airplane.
    ASUS is the #1 motherboard mfg’er in the world and this is their computer. My geeky guru guy recommended this for my foray into the laptop world. It is very cool and I am learning to use it a bit at a time. He said, if you’re gonna go big, go big with this one, you won’t be sorry. It has an 17.3″ screen, loaded wit BlueRay dvd, surround sound quality, Windows 7 and stuff I have yet to find or figure out. The PC’s at home and the office will be retired and recycled in a few weeks and I will be going wireless.

  4. I think I’ll stay with the rabbits, they’re as low-tech as they come.
