Photo poor, but gather rosebuds anyway. Beauty is fuel. Resisting oppression takes energy.
Here’s my Dad allowing me to practice listening for breath sounds on him in 1992. He’s 70 today and in better shape than he was in the 90s! I love him. Happy Birthday Dad!

Long time, no bot! New Bot Thursday brings us Maximilian from Disney’s film “The Black Hole” (1978). He’s silent, he’s murderous, he scared me as a kid!

Pre-epidural. It went uneventfully. I’ll know in a few days whether the steroid injected into my spine under fluoroscopy addresses my pain. ☢️💉

Starting the week off right with a new bot! Daitetsujin 17 (大鉄人17) is a battle robot from a 1977 tv show who defends Earth from Brain: Earth’s supercomputer that went rogue. Yes, we’ve been scared of computers a long time. Welcome Daitetsujin One-Seven!

Waiting for the Griffith Park Train to depart. Last time I was here? 44-ish years ago. There’s Super-8 camera footage of it. Also David, right.

She knows the sheep goes “baaa.”
The obvious solution to not getting a single photo where everyone looks good is to use four photos. Right?
Tuesday 25 Apr 2017
My new kickstarter will be for a live-action reboot of “Lone Wolf & Cub” where they shop for inexpensive electronics products. Also they won’t be samurai. That might impact funding.

now playing: tomorrow never knows. “That you may see the meaning of within. It is being.” GOOD morning.
Crawtators. (Lunch with my astounding sister).
“I’m not a hooligan / I rock the party and / clear all the madness” Incredible and moving museum. “Blood of my blood” as Baldwin would say.

Don’t dump snow off the top of the parking garage. I think.
Reflected in Gil Scott-Heron’s jacket.
No I don’t need beachwear right now.
Pret-a-manger is still a great chain. Buttoned up post-rain. And grapes.

Nephew dancing to Daniel Tiger song. Nephew sock adornment. Last weekday of this trip. It’s been so great.
“it may seem strange to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces.” Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address is still my favorite speech. Gets me every time, what he bore, and the hardship this Nation—my Nation—endured.
1st Lt. Bob Kalsu served & died at the Battle of Firebase Ripcord in 1970. My father served there as a corpsman and made it home. 58-thousand names on this wall. Bob Kalsu is one.
My sister’s group is responsible for an overwhelming display of orchids at the Hirshhorn Museum.
Both of us easily amused by a small screen.

Hello, L. (It’s very good to be home).
Nephewz. It’s good to be home but I miss them. Good boys, always in motion.
Me and a poster from Shirley Chisholm’s ’72 Presidential campaign. We need more Chisholm in this world.

Some views of the Midway require no ticket.
I’ve been on San Diego Bay many times but this was my first time taking the ferry. The Coronado Bay Bridge was finished 7 months before I was born. I never needed the Ferry. But it’s a beautiful 15 minute ride from Broadway Pier.
