On this first day of 2007, I had the opportunity to visit the resting place of Bruce and Brandon Lee. While I don't necessarily believe that the location of a person's earthly remains has any connection with that individual's being, soul, or essence, this was somewhat of a pilgrimage for me. Growing up in the '70s, Bruce Lee (or his legacy, at least) was always an integral part of my childhood. And as his epitaph reads, his inspiration "continues to guide us toward our personal liberation."

Chicken Adobo

For our last night, I thought I would make dinner for my son's Grandma, in appreciation for her hospitality. I wanted to fix her something that she wouldn't normally prepare herself, so I made some chicken adobo.
_____jstray 12 years ago
did anyone say adobo?!?

i haven't had adobo in ages (probably because when i tried to cook it using some weird sort of paste, it was so dry that i didn't want to try it again). i want my dad's pork adobo, he makes it really sweet and oily for some reason. bad for the body but good for the soul.

yours look very tasty!!
ebilflindas 12 years ago
Thanks, Miss J, it was tasty!

You tried making it from a paste? Was it Filipino or Mexican adobo? There are adobo dishes in both cultures' cuisines, but they are quite different. I've seen little jars of dark paste in Mexican grocery stores labeled "adobo", but I've never tried it, knowing that it wasn't the adobo I know.

As for being bad for the body, yeah, I've tried making it before with boneless, skinless chicken. It did not turn out right at all. The flavour was all wrong and the meat was dry as chalk.

Somewhere mid-way through Oregon:

The drive south along I-5 through Oregon was a beautiful mixture of clouds, rain, and sunshine.

I went without internet access during the last few days of my trip, so now I'm playing catch up.

This is, if I recall, somewhere along where US-198 and US-101 meet, in Southwestern Oregon/Northern California.
sarahwoo 12 years ago
I love these last two shots...looking forward to the rest while you play catch-up.

The colors in this last one, the blue in contrast with the coppery/gold of the heads is great. Must have been quite a site on the side of the highway.

Double rainbow helix

Morning sunlight coming in through the beveled lead-glass windows at my aunt's house in Petaluma. Somewhat reflective our trip, we did see two rainbows while driving through Oregon, and the double arc of our round-trip vacation was as joyful as two rainbows winding around one another.

msspider66: Yes, stunning indeed. Unfortunately (of perhaps not...) I do not see this everyday. This was along the homeward leg of my holiday road trip from San Diego to Seattle and back.

BellaGaia: Thank you. I hope I have more road adventures to share soon. Alas, the traveling season may be closed for a bit while my son and I settle into being home for more than a couple weeks at a stretch. I have a few other sets, though, from recent road trips to San Francisco and Arizona.

New Moo set!

And now I'm all caught up!
One of the reasons I was eager to get home was the knowledge that my new Moo minis were waiting for me!

The cards grouped on the left are from our Arizona trip; the group on the right is of shots taken in San Francisco. The two cards dividing the groupings are of my son--one is a shot of him meditating (seriously, that's what he said he was doing), the other a self-portrait he did at school.
sarahwoo 12 years ago
Wow...I really need to look into this Moo thing but I fear it may be a US only treat. They are really cool and I love the way you have them displayed. I first I thought they were magnets (which would be cool way to use moo minis...)

DSCF5788

I carry my camera (a svelte Fujifilm F470) everywhere I go, so having photos to upload is never a problem. The problem is in deciding what goes here to represent my day. I figured on this one as it truly does reflect my "style"--to shoot whatever catches my eye, and hope that it turns out decently. The best is when something shows up in the photo that wasn't noticed while framing the shot, like the "Meat" sign in the background hovering above the tomatoes!
Great set of photos. I especially love January 6 (who wouldn't?) and todays of the tomatoes. Very beautiful.

A couple days a week, after dropping my son off at school, I have coffee and/or breakfast with my friends, Erin and David. Today it was actually lunch time, so we didn't have breakfast. This is one of the few pictures taken of me with my camera. David snapped the shot while I looked for a specific episode of the Dawn and Drew Show on my mp3 player.

Spotted this rolling canvas while walking with my son after playtime at the park. I stopped in front of it to get a shot of its front end (it was parked, in case you couldn't tell), and I didn't notice until after I took the shot that there was someone sitting in there! Oh well, he probably gets that all the time.

Didn't get around much today where I could find anything interesting to shoot. A big part of being outside today was charging the battery in my friend's Cherokee. Sitting in my driveway, it hadn't been driven in a couple months, so I don't know how long its battery had been dead. I was able to do it, though, with my trusty little Saturn.

Chargin' it up

We did go to a little housewarming party tonight, but I was so busy getting my karaoke on that I didn't take any photos. The only possible shots of interest would've been of my son and the house dog--but I couldn't bring myself to take a photo of my boy trying to avoid the advances of a hump-hungry dog!

That's alright, , I've got you bookmarked for just such an emergency!

The only song I actually picked was Easy, by the Commodores (also performed by Mike Patton/Faith No More); after that we would hit the RANDOM button, and we'd have to sing whatever came up--She Talks To Angels is not an easy song to sing!

And thank you *blush*...I suppose there is the doble entendre there, although one meaning is kinda ironic--I suppose it's not "everyday" you see a single dad who has his child everyday. Thank you for saying so... xo

And at least my son didn't really know what was going on with the dog, ! He wanted so bad for the dog to play with him, but couldn't understand why it kept trying to mount him!

Today was the NFL's AFC Playoff game between the San Diego Chargers and the New England Patriots. As maligned as American Football is in other parts of the world, we love it here--well, a lot of us, anyway. And here in San Diego, we've longed for a championship team forever, or at least since pictures of the team have been in color.

Still immune...

As it turns out, we Charger fans will continue to look forward to the day our team can raise the Lombardi Trophy in triumph. Not that you could tell from these faces.

Ah to be young and unconcerned about football scores and such.

Are they drinking Capri Sun? Ahh...I kinda miss that stuff...

Finally catching up on my long list of bookmarked diaries...you have been busy! Great shots, great insight into your world which is different than mine in many ways. Although there are a lot of trucks with graffiti on them in Paris. I have always wondered if the owner of the truck allowed them to do it or just found his truck that way one morning...

Your humping dog story really made me burst out laughing! Oh, your poor son.

Making some calls.
On the Spidey-phone.

I'm a single dad (one boy). I have a friend, Chrissy, who is a single mom (one boy, one girl). She has a friend, Shana, who is also a single mom (one girl). Chrissy, every the schemer, wants us--single parents and children--to all get together regularly so that our children all get comfortable with one another, as well as with each of us grown-ups. This way, if any one or two of us needs a babysitter, we'd be all set.

Chrissy also has the notion of match-making between me and Shana, which is fine with me--I don't get out to meet anyone, so I don't mind the concern. But then, while we're all hanging out, I get to wondering if she's also shared this idea with Shana. This, too, I'd be fine with--if she knew what Chrissy was up to and still showed up, cool. But if she wasn't in on it...assez weird.

I don't know, maybe it was just that I was coming off my buzz and my brain was spinning up. Whatever, we had pizza, beer, and happy kids playing together, which was just fine. I was able to snap a couple of my boy before he got sick of the camera being pointed at him.

It must be love
Who's Bobo?

I spotted this declaration as my son and I made it back to our car after school. I helped him sound it out, at which point he asked me the obvious question.

"Dad, who's Bobo?"
"I don't know," I admitted.

Now, with time to reflect, I ask myself the same question. Who is Bobo? Then comes what is Bobo--because my thought is that Bobo is a pet's name. But probably not. And why Bobo? What is it about Bobo that compels someone to etch the sentiment in concrete? And why is Bobo called thus? Is that a given name or a love handle (handle - American slang for nickname / pseudonym / alias). When was this written, and where is Bobo now?
Great collection of photos here--especially Jan. 11.

View from Montgomery-Waller Rec. Center

I had just left the house to go fetch my son from school when I realized what a nice view it must be from the recreation center. You see, we live near the top of a hill, atop which is located the neighborhood rec. center. On the windward side of the hill, facing West, you can get a good view of Imperial Beach; and on really clear days, you can see the bull-ring down in Las Playas, Tijuana, Mexico.

I took this with my cameraphone, which has a panoramic mode--you take three shots, and then the gadget stitches 'em together. I had a hard time lining up the third frame, what with the sun in my eyes and the reflection off the view screen, so I cropped off that portion. I did set my camera up on a tripod and took some of the same shots, so once I figure out how to stitch those together, I link to it here.

(*off to Bunaen's thread to look for stitch app. links seen there...)

@ msspider66: I don't have a washer/dryer in my apartment either and I hate it! I know I wouldn't hate doing the laundry so much if I owned a laundry system. Even though the laundromat is only a block away, I will gladly wait weeks before doing laundry. Thankfully, I own a lot of clothes, but I have been known to simply let some shirts and pants "air out" for a good while if I'm too lazy to make the trip down the block!

ebilflindas 11 years ago
It was warm, & . It reminded me of how easily I take the climate here for granted. I never grew up with "weather", so I'm guilty of romanticizing cold & snow (or is it snaw now?).

I actually don't mind going to the laundromat. When I've had facilities in my home, I'd usually slack off--"Oh, I'll get that stuff outta the dryer later," or, "Dammit! I forgot about that load in the washer yesterday! Now I've gotta rewash 'em to get that smell out!" When I have to do laundry elsewhere, I get it all done in one shot. Plus, they've got these giant 6-load washing machines...I don't mess with separating my clothes. It all goes in one machine on cold. And the dryers are free if you wash your clothes there. Anyway, it's mostly my son's clothes and my t-shirts and undergarments--I usually wear jeans, and I firmly believe in not washing jeans until they start talking back--so I don't get too concerned about lights, darks, delicates, or permanent press.

And yeah, , I'm right there with ya. He's got quite the diva attitude when it comes to pictures!

You don't know what you are missing without weather. My favorite seasons are fall and winter. Spring is okay for a while, but I can do without summer. Just thinking of the sun makes my skin burn and freckle.

There is nothing like a clear day in October. The air is crisp. And the trees are at their most beautiful.

The machines in my complex are tiny and painfully slow. The dryers have one temp, too hot. I have ruined clothes and burnt my hands too many times. Now the dryers are only used for sheets and towels. Everything else gets hung up to dry.

[Ms Spider66]
ebilflindas 11 years ago
Oh I definitely know I've missed out on having actual seasons, . That's why I needed to be reminded of the weather I take for granted here. Too often I hear myself saying ridiculous things like, "I can only take sunny & 76º in January for so long!" or, "Why does it have to be this warm in January?" I know my romantic notions of a wintry landscape would shrivel like a couple grapes left out on the vine if I ever had to scrape my windshield, leave a blanket on my car's engine, or shovel my way out of my house!

Building the Air Temple

Tonight I spent some time off of the computer and away from Flickr to play with my son's Lego bricks. That's right, I was building with his Lego. We weren't doing it together. No. It's more like, "Dad, will you play Lego with me? Great! Here's the instructions, can you build this? PLEEEEEAAAAASSSSSSSSE?!"

It is fun, though, to get down on the floor and sift through all the multi-colored bricks of all shapes and sizes; to fit them together with that satisfying CLICK; to get creative when some of the necessary pieces are missing.

It's also an exercise in accepting impermanence, since that which I built--with eyes squinting and knees hurting--is soon modified, made to look the way he thinks it should look.

We had a running battle with our now adult sons (4) . They would leave the hot wheels spread all over the place. After removing several times the errant hot wheel that imbedded itself in my foot - I announced that the next hot wheel pulled out of dad's foot would be promptly crushed in the workshop vise!!

You guessed it - next morning a hot wheel finds it's way into my plantar surface. I gathered them around - along with the now bloody hot wheel - and off we go to the workshop where the offender was crushed flat by the vise !!!&^%%!! yeah that will teach them !!

They stood there with wide eyes and blank stares...suddenly all ran away. I thought again - that will teach them !!! In seconds they reappear with a arm load of hot wheels and a howling request: PLeaasssse pleeasssse crush the rest of these - we want to play CAR ACCIDENT....yeah - that will teach me !!

I had a "shoot" today with some friends who wanted me to do their engagement photos. I say "shoot" (*hands with first two fingers hooked and scratching the air around the invisible word) because I've yet to consider myself a "photographer".

We went to the beach right in front of the Hotel del Coronado at around 4:30 this afternoon. The light was just right, with the sun beginning its decent, and there were other couples on the beach, each with their photographers--the other reason I say "shoot" while clawing at the air. These other photogs were all shooting with their professional looking guns; bags holding various lenses and other accoutrements slung cavalierly across torsos; diffused flashes softly lighting couples' faces while allowing for the sunset to glow in the background...

Overall, though, I like the shots I took with my wee-pointer. I didn't capture everything I would've liked, but the ones I like, I really like. I think my friends will like them too.

Sand Castle

So my shot today was taken while out on the beach with them. It was a tough choice between this one here and this one

It shimmers just like a red Taj Mahal--except for the giant bird.

Again, it was a toss up between which photo to submit.

DSCF6227

In the end, I figured a photo of my boy would be far better than a free, Lo-Def TV.

I'm honored, thank you!
And doubly honored ;) Yes, I've always felt the Taj Mahal was lacking a giant bird. That would really give it some oomph!
Thanks! Where ever I go, adobo can't be too far behind!
Thank you! It was gorgeous there!
