I got to go out fishing on Lake Tahoe with Captain Bob Reynolds yesterday. He’s a friend of the family, so we went out on his small fishing boat. Lake Tahoe’s depth varies immensely, so no wonder you’ve got to live it up with a fishing pro! It was fun seeing the monitor that shows where the fish are and their relative “bigness” way down under. I loved seeing the fish icons pop up on the monitor and on my fishing pole. It was like we were the only souls out there and that was a fabulous treat from the last few weeks of traveling on I-5 up north to WA and then down south to Cali. Miles of deep blue lovely clean waters. Bob know his history and terminology of the lake and how to fish for different types of fish. He also knows the names of the valleys and the peaks around the lake and the type of birds that nest around the lake. It was peaceful to hear the beautiful call of Ospreys nesting at Emerald Bay and to be so close to honking geese nesting on the island there where the tea house is. I enjoyed catching the minnows, seeing them come up in the trap after only being down a few minutes, then using them on the down-rigger to catch big fish. Once again, we are cooking mackinaw too big for the immense fry pan I have, so we’re going to bake them this time. And after hearing about McDuff’s Pub at South Shore cooking peoples’ own catches in creamy dill sauce and blackened Cajun rub, I think I will improvise with that this time. Sounds wonderful. As a cook, anything is possible with the Internet… if you don’t know how to do it, “Google” it. If you want to go out with good ‘ole captain Bob, he uses his phone… WOW, a live person on the phone. He is a jolly good guy with a kickin’ roar of a laugh. Get away from the city and kick it with Bob. Maybe I will see you- his 2-6 person Charter heads out of North Shore at Tahoe City.

It is fun playing with images of Erica (she’s sooo pretty) and artworks by my son Eric R. Harrod (plum tree India print, abstract).

Nothing more to say other than, I think this is beautiful. I took this shot on a rainy day at Porter College at UCSC while visiting my son.
End to End.

This time we’re going end to end.
we’re going to get them screaming,
foaming at the mouth,
steaming over the death
of all those expectations
we should have followed.
This is how you do this,
Be sure you DON’T do that-
If you don’t know how,
then stop trying
while you’re still ahead.
Or so they said.
We once believed them,
once knew our place.
at long last, what they say
will be momentarily,
Having seen our freedom,
new lives to build,
new worlds to explore,
we will, long overdue,
settle the score.
We is I,
and you are me
and we’ll be free,
when we decree:
Long live defiance,
long live hubris,
down with orthodoxy.
No more box, no more locks, please,
Today they can think they outfoxed me; today,
I’ll not bemoan what any of the flocks believe.
Today I’m not worried if I have enough friends,
I’ll not slit my wrists to make amends. Today
I’ll not bother to confess my sins, today they
will surely know what I meant, when I said
true freedom is bound to offend, still, today,
I’m going end to end.
How long must we suffer with the incompetency of this meddlesome government?
Think twice before you get sucked in on this “deal.” You will pay hundreds of dollars for your virtually free package.
Virtually Free stay = virtual rip off…
Harrah’s and Harvey’s has a marketing email that describes a couple nights or more package with free improv tickets, free buffet, $20 spa credit, $20 beverage credit as “virtually free” — Well, not only do you pay the resort fees which I expected and seems acceptable… you pay hundreds of dollars for the other items of the package of virtually free stuff. They say, “just charge it to your room” and that they will take the charges off for the items of the offer when you depart. Well, you depart with a huge bill. The “VIP” and desk agent people who don’t know anything about the offer despite the “VIP” desk having assured you that those items of the offer that they previously knew nothing about will come off your bill. It is a scam! Anyone else have this happen to you? I have a lot more to say about it. But perhaps a class-action lawsuit would speak louder than what only I have to say about it. Used to love Harrah’s here in South Lake Tahoe, but I am boycotting them now. They are also known as Caesar’s Entertainment. They own Harrah’s and Harvey’s at Stateline, Nevada. Oddly enough, when the Reno Peppermill sends us an email that they will let us stay a few nights free, they do exactly that. We stay for a few nights free.
