Almost three hours on the ice. Late and exhausted.

Getting the Band Back Together

After almost 20 years, I was able to meet up with my old drummer, Mike Nightingale. We started a hard rock band back in 1986 in Rochester, NY, which we took to LA in 1988 in various forms. He’s still playing in a couple bands and is the proud owner/operator of some rehearsal studios in Burbank and Hollywood. He has two beautiful girls now, but still manages to live a rock-n-roll life. In fact, the girls like to join in! During our visit over a few days, we went bowling and played ice hockey as well.


A modern family.

Like father, like daughter.

New Years Toast at the Barbers

I arrived LA on new year’s eve night to stay with the Barbers, and will have a chance to visit with other friends in the area during my stay. Yes, I just saw Matt & BJ a few days earlier in Downieville for Christmas, but sometimes you gotta stick close to the good ones! Here’s a toast to the new year served up by Matt, Cara and Dave.

Big Sur Sleep

It was quite dark by the time I arrived California’s Big Sur coast and finally pulled over on the side of a winding route 1. I’m sorry I didn’t take a better picture of the billions of stars that lit up the sky and kept us company through the night. When we awoke to the morning light, I was pleasantly surprised by the view.


Good night, and good morning.
