Seals & Sur

Our week up in Cambria wasn’t all the same routine. In our rental house, we found a couple of books by Ron Stob on the Backroads of the Central Coast. We’re folks that like to get off the beaten path and so decided to load up Adventure Dog and to spend a day finding some…

Happy Returns

Since we’ve been at The Aerie, the real turning point that marks the end of one year and the start of the next is the week following The Beloved’’s big Symposium, which is always right after New Years. It completes her busiest time of the work-year and so we always take a little break afterwards.…

Penny’s New (Work)Place

Penny here. Wow — what a day. It had been a couple of weeks since I’d gone to work and I’d been starting to wonder about that, but this morning Steve gave me the “Let’s go, Pup!” and I was right there because I’m always ready to go. Funny thing, though, was he put my…

Opening Scene?

So, you know how when you’re sick, you can almost always plant yourself on the couch and watch some Law & Order marathon on TNT or USA Network? Those shows almost always start with some bystander/passerby coming across some grisly crime scene. And other than maybe hotel maids, it seems that people out walking their…

Pretirement

One of the conversational topics explored as we’ve traveled to different places over the past few years is the question: Could we retire here? It’s usually a pretty fun topic. What sort of house could we buy? What would the weather be like? Is there good medical care nearby? Is it too crowded, or too…
