School is in full swing and we are getting used to the new daily routine.
The week in pics.
My son and his friend working on an after-school activity:
A classmate from high school put together a VW car show in Dover called Volksbash.
It was beautiful weather on Sunday and a good time.
This is an original VW Karmann Ghia bought in 1971. The owner told me that he has had more parts replaced (hip, knee, vertebrae) than it has.
The Ex-Pats storm Europe.
This photo reminds me lyrics from one my favorite songs:
"To be in England
In the Summertime
With my Love
Close to the Edge".
-Art of Noise
R is seen here retracing the steps his grandfather took in Normandy on D-Day.
It's always good to see what is shaking on the west coast.
M and S:
The San Francisco Treat.
M started kindergarden this week. S threw a celebratory party.
It looks like he is crying, but he is actually leg pressing 450 pounds. It's his new personal record.
They are either practicing dinosaur faces or prepping for Halloween.
Either one is a good idea.
One last look at the local bank. It has been bought out by one of the chains
(and I doubt they take livestock and veggies as payment like this one did).
I was super excited when I saw this, but then it turns out that BJ's is a wholesale club.
(I thought it stood for butter and jam -
get your head out of the gutter)!
Little Sluggers learning the basics of baseball.
If they had programs like this when I was growing up, I would've gone pro.
We watched the entire first season of BoJack Horseman on Netflix.
Bring on the fall TV season already!
La Tolteca opened up right next to the county library. It is one of one our new hangs.
I took this shot inside. It's a Mayan showing off his loin-cloth and headdress.
The caption should read:
"What? This old thing? I just grabbed it out of the closet".
I learned about Kilroy from my Great-Uncle Bill who spoke about seeing him over in Europe during the war. He was drawn on the front of a VW bug at Volksbash.
It makes a good parting shot.
See you next week!
