Bodie State Historic Park

Along with all the mining apparitions, we visit here once in awhile. It's a great place for a walk about and it's very interesting. The self guided tour map is available for purchase and it's quite good. An authentic old west ghost town, it is chocked full of history and interesting artifacts to view, photograph and just enjoy. If you go, be absolutely sure to visit the museum. It's a fascinating place to see a wealth of artifacts from a historic California gold mining town.

What's new?

I have officially retired from my position with the City of Riverside. The shift work was really getting to me again and my body couldn't stand up to it. At any rate, I'll be posting again from time to time now. I'm slowly getting things sorted out and I need to figure out what to occupy my time with. I need to find some part time work... I know it's a horrible time to look. I have a couple of options that may pan out. More on those later.

For now, I'm working on my Zazzle store:

And my store's blog:
Florals by Fred Blog

Please have a visit and let me know what you think. I'm hoping to make some sales soon.

Sadly, my flyfishing addiction has somewhat been on hold lately. I am planning on getting out next week to toss a fly around on some local waters. I REALLY need to do this. I'm also planning on taking some time to start tying flies again. I have been absent from the bench since summer... way too long. Talk to me folks! I have an open calendar now and need direction, lol.

Thanks and until next time,

Old Guys Rule!!!!
