Al Hirschfield - The Beatles "Abbey Road"

Karen and I went to our first Colony H.S. football game for 2014. It was tied 7-7 against the West Covina Bulldogs going into the final minutes of the third quarter. West Covina marched down to the Colony six yard line and couldn't score. Colony scored three plays later and that turned the tide for Titans.

I thought the game was going to turn on a coaches penalty.  During the third period Colony was called for roughing the Bulldog quarterback.  The defensive coach  went ballistic yelling at the referee and got a penalty.  The two penalties put the Bulldogs on the Colony 4 yard line, but the Bulldogs couldn't score. I hate to see the staff interfere in the play on the field like that.  To me, that's excusable. 

The Colony Titan Regiment played part of it's 2014 field show at half time.  They sounded good.  The band looks bigger this year than in years past.  We'll have to attend a couple of their competitions this year.

You know you lead a dull life when you get excited over new sayings on the Taco Bell hot sauce packets.  LOL!!!

I've been in a bit of a funk the last couple of days.  If you, or someone you know, is dealing with depression, here is a good article on what it's like to deal with depression.

Yellowstone National Park

We spend a day in Jellystone. We arrived at Ol' Faithful just as it was going off so we had to wait around for more than an hour for it to erupt again.

Just as were beginning to think all we were going to see were trees, we rounded a bend and happened upon many bison.  They seem to have the right of way on the roads, and who can argue with them.

Happy Birthday to Barbara Jean Moorehead, aka Barbara Eden, who turns 83 years young today.

Joe the Plumber keeping in classy

Very nice!

I had a conversation with a co-worker about this very thing on Wednesday.  I made a couple of suggestions based on what seemed to work at my former place of employment and he told me I just didn't understand the culture of my current organization.  Which apparently said change is very hard to come by here.  This from a person in a position who could effect change.  So with an attitude like that, I will no longer offer any suggestions, which is an attitude unfortunately that stifles any further chance of change.

Saw this commercial today. It would appear that football season is just around the corner.
Our first stop on our vacation was at the 320 Guest Ranch. The ranch is located on the edge of Yellowstone National Park. We spent one day at Yellowstone and another day in Virginia City, Montana, an old mining town. This was the inside of our cabin. 

We did some horseback riding and ended up with a couple of sore butts. We rode for two hours and worked our way up and back down the mountain side. 

The last evening we had a cart ride to a BBQ along the river that runs past the front of the ranch.

The four nights we spent at the ranch were very relaxing.  We had free breakfast buffets each morning and a roasted pig dinner one night and a BBQ on  another night.

Happy birthday to former President Bill Clinton who turned 68 Monday. I can still remember seeing him in person during one of his presidential campaigns in a park in Ontario.
