Breakfast in California


We drove our two cars to Texas.  Took us three days.  Two nights. 1400 miles.  Left our cars at our new house and flew back to California for the final move.

We are moving to Georgetown, Texas in a few days so this is one of those final breakfasts we are having in Chino Hills, California.  We gave away our breakfast nook and our dining table so we have been eating on our coffee table while still in California.  The meal you see above was prepared differently.  The cut tomatoes were fresh and the egg was cooked in the oven.  Salsa was added for some fixing.  Bon appetit.

Hope your day is going well.

Austin City by Night


Austin has progressed since the last time we were there - about three years ago.  Back then, these high rise buildings were still under construction.  Austin expects more than 30,000 people to reside here and its neighboring cities in two years as Apple intends to make it their headquarter.  This is going to be good for the economy as there will be more demand for construction activities, food supplies, real estate and so on.  This too means that majority of the transplant will be from California.  Austin is probably a good fit for them as it also shares some of California's liberal values.

Mimi, RIP


August 5, 2005 - February 10, 2019.  And we were excited to bring her to Texas with us.  I suppose she was always a California Girl.

Rest in Peace,  Mimi.  Rose and I miss you.  Our hearts cry out.

But We Won the War


This used to be barracks of the U.S. Army in the island of Corregidor, Philippines during World War II.
On May 1942, the invading Japanese forces captured Corregidor, which was the remaining obstacle to the 14th Japanese Imperial Army of Lieutenant General Masaharu Homma.  Three years later, the U.S. Army would recapture the island, and the war would be over.

Still Life with Existential Clock


Does anybody really know what time it is
Does anybody really care
If so I can't imagine why
We've all got time enough to cry
