Past Blast

This photo showed up in my email this morning from Andrea. The space authority did throw some epic parties. My other favorite movie character to play is Doc Brown.

Odds and Ends

AJ just loves those Village chickens.

Starbucks with Matteo (and AJ).
Remember that broken mailbox? It's fixed.

Happy Father's Day

AJ presented this drawing to me on Father's Day. His Dad got one very similar. I wonder what he wants to do? I'm game!

We had a very nice Father's Morning on Saturday when all hands were on the deck, including the Nipomo Fosters.

Then and Now


One picture is of Gretl and her Director, Zach Johnson, for Sound of Music in 2013 at the SLO Repertory Theatre. The other is of an orphan/thief and her Director for Oliver! last night (2017). Wow, what a ride! Same director, same theatre.

Voice and Piano Recital

Serafina and Matteo were both in Lyrics and Melodies' Recital this afternoon. Serafina was sandwiching the recital between Oliver and Into the Woods rehearsals. Matteo was chillin' as only Matteo can.

Fish Gaucho, et al

Lynn, Jamie, Trevor, and Jen got in for lunch at the new Fish Gaucho in Paso Robles. (We had tried with the Underwoods once before on a Friday night - 2-hour wait.) Really fun place. Great food and drink, loved the rustic decor. It's a gotta try.

After lunch, we went out to Daou Winery and just vegged on their patio tasting their wines. Had the real camera with me this time (unlike lunch) but took not one photo (was so relaxed even lifting the camera felt like too much effort). We do have plenty of Daou photos, like here, for instance.

He Beat Me, Again!

Look at that pile of money! He beat me again, but it took him almost 3 hours over a couple days to do it. He had hotels on Boardwalk and Park Place, I had hotels on Vermont, Connecticut, and whatever the 3rd light blue property. The rest of the board was undeveloped.

Lexi is 2!

And her paw is doing fine following its griddle mishap. Remember, she was born at the very moment Amaryllis (Serafina, in Music Man) landed the last note of her "cross hand piece" at the SLO Rep.

90 Years

Guess what we un-earthed on what would have been Papa Bill's 90th birthday (today)... The Lionel train he got on his 1st birthday!

The Regusci clan visited Sam on the occasion of his 15th birthday. It's been a while since all seven kids were together.

Saturday, April 29, 2017


Look who got to go (because Serafina and the rest of the women-folk were wrapped up with Annie)? It's OK, there's another group going in July (assuming Serafina doesn't have another role by then...).

Annie (Kelrik)

Leapin' lizards, that was fast. Kelrik's production of Annie opened tonight. Seems like rehearsals only started a few weeks ago. Oh wait, they did start just a few weeks ago! Despite all kinds of tech issues, the show was a delight to watch thanks to the performances by the entire cast. Great bunch of people.

A few more pics are here.
