Inside The Octagon

Sorry, Chuck Norris fans--this is not a behind-the-scenes exposé of the 1980 cult classic (?).

 Always looking for something new, TSG lucked out and found this cool barn on a bike ride on the "back road" between Pismo and SLO.  Pretty damn scooby, as the Carter brothers are wont to say.

Pismo Beach Babes

You never know what kind of bimbos you might run into during a stroll along the shore!

Nice Day In Morro Bay Today

Five days of  100-degree weather was enough for us.
Let me get back to the sea, indeed.

Cave Darter II -- Where The Crawdads Are

Today TSG finally made it to the local (Sonora/Angel's Camp 'hood) summer hangout/swimmin' hole, Natural Bridges.  An awesome spot, kind of an open-ended cave/tube with a creek (Coyote) flowing through it.

Time Machines Discovered in Sonora

Trying to get in an excursion before it got over 90 degrees, TSG decided on a walking tour of the town nicknamed "The Queen of the Southern Mines". Since it was pretty early on a Sunday morning, we were mostly window shopping/snapping, but Pine Tree Peddlers was open, so we went in to poke around. Our poking was rewarded with a couple of 3-decade old periodicals of particular interest---

The second issue, dated October 5th, 1978 has a haunting image of Moonie with the sadly ironic caption, "I know I gotta discipline myself again." (Keith died a month before on Sept 7th)
