Even though Coronavirus is still raging without a vaccine available, it’s legal again so I have to escape once in awhile around my San Diego neighborhood. Here’s a huge snake at Pet Kingdom, a nearby pet store with a stardust Android photo filter that makes it look like the snake is in a disco.
Here’s some floating hammocks near Paradise Point.
Here’s an upstairs view of boats from Point Loma Seafoods.
Staying Home: Welcome to my World!
Everybody, welcome to my world! I’ve been staying home almost every day because I have been looking for work, applying for jobs online, as most jobs are these days, for around 2 years and I am over 62 so it’s really tough to get hired. It got so tough that I had to file for social security early and get less money so I have less to live on than if I had full retirement. Now, because of coronavirus, everyone stays home, all the time. I love working on artistic projects, staying home but I need money just like you do now. I look out my window and see everyone at home, with more time to do what they want but no money. Now everybody has to do almost everything online like I do when I file job applications. I was in the middle of testing for a graphic designer job online when the company canceled the position because of the coronavirus, It turned out you can’t do the job without working in an office. My book signing at Barnes and Noble was also canceled. With all the partisan bickering, who knows if and when the government will really help us survive?
Less traffic cleaner air
Republicans and democrats appear to be working together in an unusually cooperative matter to avert a melt down of the economy.

Getting checked at the doctor’s office for Covid 19, might have strep throat or influenza instead, since I didn’t travel recently and don’t have a fever. Results for strep throat and pneumonia are coming back any minute now. Pretty nurse practitioner did a thorough job and made me feel cared for. Even though I don’t pay a penny. Feel tired and so glad I got seen right away on a same day appointment! The timing is also off for getting Covid. So I hope to God I have something that they can easily cure or it goes away on it’s own.
Now I am here possibly facing mortality but hopefully not. I must also face my boredom in this exam room. Perhaps the mold in the house is doing this to me too.
This disease could ruin everyone’s progress, including my own. We have to rise above it with our collective creativity.

Here’s a thoughtful poet with an actual notebook possibly composing an ode to the mighty sea.
On a lazy Saturday afternoon, I saw a bunch of these young guys hanging around the San Diego Marine Embarcadero Park near the Star of India, watching another guy jump his bicycle over an open gutter with a dead bird they said they put in it. It seemed like such a shame that these guys have nothing else to do except create what they joked about was “hepatitis water.” Not to mention how cruel it is for the poor dead bird and unsafe for the kids. Is this creativity or chaos? Shouldn’t the city do something?
Ever seen the Matt Damon movie, “Downsizing” where people shrink down to become 3D miniatures to save a lot money and live in tiny luxury homes?
Now you can spend your extra money at the local mall to get a 3D printed miniature of yourself and your family. The company is called Doob and no, it isn’t a joint like the name sounds. Although the Jefferson Airplane song is partly about shrinking yourself with hallucinogens.
So if your tired of flat family photos, then go down to the mall and get a 3D printed Doob of yourself. Prices range from $95.00 to $295.00, depending on how many family mmbers you want . I’m not sure if payment plans are available. And you need to be 3D scanned in person so you can’t make any voodoo dolls.

I got up early New Years eve Morning to see the balloon parade. I’ve always wanted to see it so this year I didn’t miss it. It took me awhile but I finally found a place to park, in a tight spot, but unknowingly it became a fantastic view where the balloons all went to deflate!
Here’s my imaginary San Diego family.
Here’s a piggy.
Thought I was dreaming when I saw this T-Rex floating down the street.
This must have been that worm in my tequila.

I want to be the wizard of WordPress.
Is there a need to fear?
This was my favorite shot!
I thought the parade was over when this space shuttle balloon came by. This was the last float. Happy New Year!
We’ve all seen it. You’re at a public place, usually enjoying an entertainment event when a parent walks by with a child on a leash. It’s a little shocking to see at first, but then you reason that the child could get away and the parents would be liable, not to mention missing them. The “leash” in the picture above isn’t too bad. I’ve seen others that look like they belong on a precious pooch instead. I don’t have children, but how do you feel about unruly children on leashes? What would you do if you had one or saw one?
