Amaryllis bloom

Amaryllis bloom

Sarah's aunt Sue wanted us to take a picture of the amaryllis flower we have on our balcony to see if it matched the bulbs they have. Here you go Sue. I think ours is more red than theirs.

We visited everyone in Torrance on our way back from San Diego over the Memorial Day weekend. The amaryllis blooms in Torrance seemed to have more white in them.

Lots of blooms though, the plants on the balcony are doing pretty well overall, they get lots of sun.

New 'puter for Sarah

We have shared a home desktop computer for a long time. Sarah has wanted a laptop for a long time, so she can take it when traveling and just for moving around the place. Circuit City had a pretty good sale on a Compaq, and here it is.

We originally brought home a 17 inch monitor HP laptop, but it was kind of a monster, so we exchanged it for a smaller and cheaper one. This one is pretty nice, Windows Vista and everything.

gary's knee

My right knee has been hurting lately, especially when i've gone on long bike rides. I went to the doctor the other day to have it checked out. He thinks my femur might have worn a groove or something in my knee cap. Anyway, take a look and tell me what you think.

I'm going to go to physical therapy this week, and if that does very little, i'm gonna check with a orthopedist. I might be going under the knife... or 'scope i guess.

The Price is Right Crowd

This is the line up outside of the CBS Television City studios on Fairfax Avenue by us. Why are people camping out here at about 2pm on a Sunday? Why... to be on one of the remaining few episodes of The Price is Right with Bob Barker!

People line up a day before. They often have matching t-shirts all ready to go.
