Today was a pretty magical day.  Sure I spent six hours in a car with no AC driving through the Sonoran desert but that’s not what matters.  I saw Smokey today.  I haven’t seen Smokey in years and he said that he remembers me!


2002 – Some 10k or 5k in Southern California (mom on the left)

Smokey looks good. I put on some weight.  He’s got to get that belt buckle under control.

But let’s get serious for a moment. Smokey is good but how often do you get TWO COOKIES FOR THE PRICE OF ONE?


Even the cashier wanted to take a photo.  This was a good way to end the day.

Thanks to Josh for driving all the way out and back.  I had a good time.


  1. Sounds like you had a fun day, you and Smokey are looking good.
    I still wear the fanny pack! (and t-shirt)


  2. But did you here any blues music?
