I left my camera in San Diego.

I think that Tony Bennett should sing that version of his hit. Even though it's yet to be created. I'm sure it'd catch on.

I really did leave it there today, though. I do that sometimes. Otherwise, you'd be seeing some pretty good photos right now. Maybe later, right? I had the opportunity to sit on a big fast boat for most of the day, fishing. I'd never done so in the ocean. And, considering our results -- we didn't ketch nothing -- we (Brooks, Derrick and myself) could probably get away with saying we still haven't. I did pull up my fair share of lively sardines, but apparently catching what you're already using as live bait doesn't really count. Still, it was a thrill that lasted at least five minutes. It's a good thing there were plenty of hungry sea lions and divebombing pelicans and such to keep the lot of us good and distracted.

Today I learned the following: Sea lions that eat your fish boatside are fun. Those that steal your bait you're using to catch other fish are not so much fun. Sea lions that almost take your hand along with the fish aren't just rude, they're plain evil.
Don't let his cute mug fool you. The wistful look in his eye is actually saying "Human hands are deliiicious!"

I'm exhausted. No more words out of me.

Does someone have it safe for you, or is it lost? I left my camera in Banff. It was a sad day.

That sea lion doesn't even look cute. It looks scary. He has the "i could easily kill you if I wanted to look."

Lucille: What the hell is that?
Buster: These are my awards, Mother. From Army. The seal is for marksmanship and the gorilla is for sand racing

Exactly. Did we learn nothing by Buster losing a hand?
