Latest Personal News?

Well, 2019 is flying by.  A wise man once said about time ... "the days drag on but the years fly by."  2019 is zooming by very fast.

I've spent the last few months escaping the summer heat in Palm Springs and having fun in the SouthBay (Los Angeles) going back to my old maritime days.  Hanging out in San Pedro and watching the container ships come and go was a great time.  Made me feel a lot younger.  Now I'm back in Santa Monica for a few weeks and will be ultimately returning home to Palm Springs for awhile before spending some time in Arizona.

Before year's end, I'll be in Tuscon for a few weeks. California has a lot of very DEEP problems that aren't going away anytime soon.  What is happening to my home state is so sad.  It also contines to get ridiculously expensive to live in California especially on a retirement income.

Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Tuscon. Who knew retirement would be so much work?  Lol.

I'll continue to update this page with my travel plans as I keep going down the road in retirement.

Hope your travels these days are happy ones too.

American Heroes ... 

This picture has always been an inspiration to me. When young Dale Ostrander went to the beach in 2011, he was dragged under the surf by a riptide off the shore.

Dale spent over 20 minutes under water in the Pacific Ocean. When rescuers found him, he had no pulse and wasn't breathing.  

Miraculously, Dale survived.  But only because these amazing heroes rushed Dale to safety.
