Default FearNaut and Sheila's new home.

Here is a link to photos of our new home.

Some were taken before we moved in, some during move in, and a few this week....we've been here 4 weeks now and are settling in nicely. It's not quite what most people imagine when they think of Orange County, CA....

I used to drive for El Toro Garage [ tow trucks ] and spent a lot of time in that canyon and Holy Jim canyon.
My front door used to face Saddle back Mt. and we rode dirt bikes all over that hill.

Yes sir Mr. Welder sir - We're a stone's throw from the Trabuco Oaks Steak House, and a half a stone's through from the road to Holy Jim.

Great little spot.

I beleive the last Grizzly bear in Caliifornia was killed in holy jim canyon in 1909.
In 1978 you could feel the history in them canyons.

Thanks FJ, and if you're ever out this way......

Mr. Welder sir (I accidentally responded to you earlier whilst on her login) - Sheila is very glad to hear about that bear. She loves animals, except she has this fear of bears that has no basis in any bad experiences, but there it is.

We are loving it. One of our favorite things is just sitting out on the rear deck with coffee and listening to the canyons wake up (a lot of neighbors have horses, roosters, dogs, goats, sheep, etc.). The drive home from work is really nice too (as Mr Welder knows) as we pass through Live Oak canyon - A sleepy hollow kind of drive with the oaks almost making a tunnel that you drive through.

Now if we could just get the weekend road warriors to chill a little. Too many nut jobs run that road and do extraordinarily stupid things - like passing on blind hills.

Last weekend we were bringing Sheila's BW Menemsha home. There was a cyclist riding along the shoulder at a particularly narrow section of road. I scooched to the left to give him some breathing room and make sure he didn't get clipped by the trailer. Just as I was doing that, a kid in a white Mustang came barreling around me, across the double yellow and approaching a blind hill.

If I'd had to make a choice between hitting the cyclist or running the Mustang into the ditch, I would have chosen taking out the idjit in the Mustang.

It was one of the few times in my life that I really wanted to pummel someone.

Rich and Sheila, great looking home. Congratulations to both of you. In the pictures of your back yard there is a pale yellow old military pick-up type truck. Does that belong to you?

Nope - That's a WWII Weapons carrier that belongs to a neighbor and is one of those that was sent to Normandy for the 60th Anniversary of D-Day. Very cool truck and fully restored. He asked if he could park it there per his agreement with the former owner of our property.

He also has a WWII ambulance, but it's not in anywhere near as good condition.
