Halloween Night 2015


Mike & Nanci hosted a Halloween party at their place in San Jose this year.  Mike showed he was practicing to be a member of the Blue Man Group and Nanci tried to make rain as El Nino but it was more of a dribble.  I showed up as an Arabian desert prince with my lovely genie-of-the-lamp, Darlene.

Glenn’s 45th Birthday

My brother, Glenn, decided to run 45 miles over the week of his birthday, starting with a half-marathon and culminating with the final five miles to an eatery in downtown Portland specializing in fresh-baked pies.  (Mmmm… pies….)

He made this commitment before he came down with a bronchial infection or knew that he’d have some nasty windy and rainy weather to run through during the week. However, with the aid of a mélange of drugs and the hesitant okay from his doctor, he ran the miles anyway and some of us joined him for his final five miles… and pie!!

Here’s his take on the experience

We also happened to catch the Portland Lighted Christmas Ship Parade on Sunday night:

Halloween Night 2014

Darlene and I headed out for Halloween night as the Princess Bride and Westley (aka, the Dread Pirate Roberts), having not entirely escaped the R.O.U.S.’s of the fire swamp:

Our first stop was to try to score some trick-or-treating at the Riggles. Dave then took us over to see this year’s incredible pirate house/manor at a nearby home in Los Altos.  It was an amazing display – comparable to a large portion of the Pirates of Caribbean animatronics at Disneyland:

Here’s their web site: http://www.piratemanor.com and a story about their efforts in the local town paper.

Then we were off to a super-decorated 80’s costume theme party with Martha and David hosted by some friends of theirs in San Jose.

Surprise Party

Darlene managed to gather together a large number of my friends at her house to surprise me on my birthday — so *that’s* what she had been up to all month — and why she was asking such strange questions!

She also had several cakes on hand so we could celebrate Rachel’s and Resi’s birthdays…

(Thanks for sharing the pictures, Dave!)

Remembering Cassie

Cassie Elliott, a wonderful, joyful person — and friend — died earlier this month.  I’m posting this as a memorial to share a stream of photos from our adventures together, mostly with the Outdoor Adventure Club, since I first met her in December 2008.
