I'll be turning 40 in a couple weeks, and I want to be at least in better shape, then.
One thing I noticed right away was that a huge pine tree had been cut down.
I wonder what happened to it?
The park is connected to a school, and along one side there is a storm channel.
In order to walk all the way around the park and school, I used to have to crawl through holes in a fence.
I remember reading in the newspaper how the city finally created a bike trail there.
The article is dated June 2016 , so I know I haven't walked since then!
It was really nice of the city to put this in place:
Maybe they got tired of seeing grown-ups trying to squeeze through kid-sized holes in the fence.
There were a lot of things planted along the trail.
One thing I saw were butterfly bushes, doing much better than plant I have at home.
Bugs really like this plant!
I also found a morning glory.
At home I made a few things in my sketchbook.
I made a grid.
I filled in the squares with stuff.
I dreamed I was in a chase scene, like a James Bond Movie.
I was in a speedboat on the coast of France, but it didn't look like France.
Later, I drove my red car very fast through a European city, and ended up at a gift shop where I was very picky about getting a present for Mom.
It was a little hand-held electronic slot machine.
Mom always wanted to go to Vegas.
I think she got married there, but I can't remember her ever taking the time to go.
Later today I am going to Anaheim to visit my mechanic and the painter, and see what's up.
