California Dreamin'

Greetings from San Diego! The weather has been totally awesome. I went to the San Diego Zoo on Wednesday. I took tons of pictures. The Internet here is kind of slow so each of the pictures I loaded for this post took forever! So I just a few up from the zoo. I won't bore you with my flower and cactus pictures from Balboa Park.

Finally I'm on the gorilla's back.

Zebras for chess?

"I can get that fish! No problem."

Surfin' anyone?

Today I'm going to check out the USS Midway, and then head up to San Francisco, via Los Angeles. I'm hoping I can get on the earlier flight out of LAX, otherwise I will have a long time to post more pictures, and perhaps get around to "Wacky Wednesday Deferred", AKA "Thursday Thud".

PS. I was well behaved, and didn't ditch my niece to go to the San Diego chess club that meets on Wednesday nights!

And you call yourself a chessplayer? Behaving and not even visiting the local chessclub, gosh!

I guess now chess for Zebra's will have no secrets anymore. :-)

I figure I didn't want to infect their club with my lousy playing. It will just make me hungrier for a win the next time I play. LOL @ zebras

Actually, I prefer plants to animals if you want to post some of those.

And I thought I had a busy week! But while I was away on business you played Atomic Patzer in TX and now you're in CA. Crazy. I hope one day to have a sizable travel budget of my own. Maybe if the right president wins. :)

Like: I played AT in New Jersey. I just wrote the post in at the airport in Dallas between flights. That's what happens when you have 2.5 hours between flights.

LEP: I'll put up some flower pics for you when I get on faster connection with my own computer. I'm surfing on my roomie's computer at the moment.

Sounds fun. The SD zoo is amazing: I lived about 10 minutes from there and had a student pass for the year. Never played chess in San Diego though. The boredom that hit upon leaving San Diego opened me up to chess. :)

BDK: I guess it's good for us that you left San Diego and took up chess. However it still begs the question....Why would anyone leave San Diego once they lived there?
