Frank and I went to Huntington Harbor again today for kayaking. Was very cloudy and cold this morning. Weatherman said 20% chance of rain. We got to the beach and no clouds at in the sky. Winds were blowing inland but they were cold out of Alaska. We had fun but had to work hard at paddling today because of the wakes and wind. Right at the end when I was getting out of my kayak and had put my paddle in the boat the wind caught me and I fell back, the kayak and paddle heading back out. One thing your are responsible for your equipment, so I ended up almost to my waist in the water trying to get the boat and paddle back. Man when the wind hit me I got goose bumps all over. This happened to a few people, it was pretty tough today. Glad the car was close by, Frank and I headed over right away, just saying bye to a few people. Here is a group picture of us from today. I am in the black t-shirt with the white shorts and Frank is behind me in the green shirt and blue jean short with black cap.
On the drive home I told Frank Mom gets the shower first today. After that I ran over to the market to get a few things, like dinner. Came home and my son puts on an old Cheech & Chong movie, "Up In Smoke". Still pretty stupid but the men have been laughing a lot. Took Phred out for a short walk and had to wear a sweatshirt. Dinner will be ready close to 6pm tonight and going to watch the final "Lost" tonight. Will have to switch over to 4 at times to check up on "The Apprentice". Don't have a DVR, cable or satellite in order to watch other things.
Everyone have a nice evening.

Woke up this morning and it was cool yet again. Even some light rain. Where is our S.CA sunshine at, the weatherman says Sunday they are looking at a 20% chance of rain and windy. That is the day Frank and I are kayaking yet again.
You never know once you get to the beach how the weather will actually be like. The first weekend I went Anaheim was covered in clouds but Huntington was sunny.
Talked to Gordies sister Eleanor a little while ago to see when they are going to have services. She said Evan would let everyone know by email, most likely out in Riverside at the VA Cemetery. She seems to be doing pretty good. Right now she is having her house redone, tile, carpet. She says she is lucky because she has something to occupy her mine so she isn't crying all the time. I am glad she is doing so well and she has her children and grandchildren to keep her company. She has always been a strong kind woman.
