Hazy on the Details: November, 2017

And it starts! The “official” holiday season. Can you believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner? Of course I can; my sis Laurie and I start the meal planning on our September vacation together. While on that same vacation, my sis Margy sent me her authorization for the Air Force Fly-over for her city’s Veteran’s Day Parade (Fairfield, if you’re ...

Hazy on the Details: October, 2017

You know when it’s hot and humid, how it seems like summer will never end? And October will never get here? It got here! Yay! I love fall—the perfect riding days, still part of summer left, the days are still a bit longer, no long rides, but the little lunch rides and breakfast rides are out there. I have my ...

Hazy on the Details: September, 2017

September’s a quirky month—in theory everyone’s returned from their summer vacations and back down to serious work. Kids are back in school, summer’s over, Costco introduces Christmas (shudder) and Halloween’s a’comin. However, for me, it’s another couple months of yucky summer heat and the welcome back to horrible fall commuter traffic (summer traffic is so much better!) My summer music ...

Hazy on the Details: August, 2017

I’m not a crazy fan of summer. OK, mostly I’m not a crazy fan of the heat. I actually love almost everything else about summer. Remember when we were kids and August was the winding down of summer? Now it’s just the middle. Now that I don’t have to dread the start of school, it’s just part of 4–5 months ...

Hazy on the Details: July, 2017

Fourth of July kind of kicks off summer in my book—yeah, I know the first day of summer was June 21, but let’s face it, there’s really not much happening until then. Maybe when we were kids it started when school let out—these days, sadly, not so much. So officially I think summer should kick off with LaVerne’s Fourth of ...

Hazy on the Details: June, 2017

I’m officially kicking off summer! I have my Hollywood Bowl season tickets, I have picnics planned, and I’ve lined up my summer music and free stuff! My big expenditure of the summer is the Bowl, but the rest is freeeee! So much to do, it’s hard to choose, but as always, I’ll be sharing what I get with you guys! ...

Hazy on the Details: May, 2017

I look forward to May because that’s when I always take my “spring break” which is an annual sis/girlfriend week’s worth of vacation. This year’s is once again up to Cambria, where we will shop, eat, cook, play cards, hike and chat. Always a fun event, and of course I promise to miss work terribly. Sure I will. Thanks for ...

Hazy on the Details: April, 2017

So I’m starting out my April column with a retirement. Me? Oh, heck no. At least not this month. Hah! Instead, our fearless leader, Terry Roorda, has decided to give up the high life of writing (which, by the way, can be hard work). Terry’s Blue Dog Diaries is the first thing I read when I open my THUNDER PRESS. ...

Hazy on the Details: March, 2017

It’s been a delightfully wet winter so far. And, while I’m well aware it’s not conducive to riding, my garden sure loves it, as does my business, which, sadly, depends on stupid drivers to keep us supplied with fresh-wrecked cars. I love the wrecking biz; I’ve done it for so many years, it’s hard to remember any other way of ...

Hazy on the Details: February, 2017

February—the doldrums of motorcycling, isn’t it? One would think—and yet you look up the THUNDER PRESS calendar for what’s happening in February and there’s plenty to play with, isn’t there? One of the events not on our calendar, but lots of fun, is the Riverside County National Date Festival, which runs February 17 through the 26th. The Camel Races alone ...
