A good morning indeed!

Things move faster at home It’s been all about catching up the last two weeks. Catching up on good stuff…work, friends, food, motorcycle maintenance, but still catching up. For example; last Sunday I caught up with sleep. This Morning I woke up Sunday morning- wait that’s a song and I can’t remember the next line,…

Truck hunting on the Central Coast.

Pantera Oro

Pantera motor spotted at Belmont Shores car show today. Thanks for humoring me. This is a test for the mobile blog thing. It finally worked! Since you’re here…this car really had a gold plated drivetrain and lots of trim including custom made bumpers. Believe it or not it looked really cool in a strange way.…

Trip to Winslow a success!

The visit with Loren, Courtney, and Robert of Sadler & Associates went great Monday. We had a very productive discussion, they had a lot of great ideas, and agree with our preservation vs. restoration vision for the space. They’re confident we’ll have a functioning apartment and at least a limited certificate of occupancy by late…
