Cooler Day

Had our morning dog walk/play date with Jean and her dogs today. It was all overcast while we were out. This cooler weather should help the firefighters with the Powerhouse Fire. The sun broke through around 9:15 or so. I headed over to Sam's Club and picked up a few things. Got there and realized I had forgotten my shopping list, but I somehow remembered everything I had on the list. Amazing! Came home and watched some TV. After lunch, I took Hiker over to Pico Canyon Park for an afternoon walk. I've driven past there several times, but we never stopped. There is a 300 year old oak tree there named “Old Glory” that was going to be cut down several years ago because it was in the path of where they wanted to build a road. Long story short, a man named John Quigley climbed “Old Glory” and chained himself to her and refused to come out until a deal was made to not cut her down. Eventually she was moved down the road and a park was created around her. They were worried for awhile that she would die but she has survived for several years now and seems to be doing just fine. I've heard that there is a steep stair case in the park that people walk and/or run up and down for cardio exercise, but I could not find it. If any of my SCV friends know where it is exactly, can you please tell me? Hiker and I walked around the path in the park for about 15 or 20 minutes. I think I'll take Keith over there next time he comes and we will explore the area for hiking. 3Got up to about 80° here today.

  1. Can't shop without a list or I veer off course. You are lucky you remembered everything you needed. Tree sounds interesting.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
