Welcome to Double Nickels


I am turning Double Nickels this week. I really can't believe it, At one time, I used to think that 55 was old but here I am embracing the journey and enjoying every bit of it. Life is precious and here are pics from my 54th journey around the sun (Note what some call my eccentric fashion choices):

With the A's Championship Trophy

With the Willie Mays Statue-outside of Oracle Park-Home of the San Francisco Giants

And what was cool was sharing the journey with my kids:

I did meet one celebrity during the year- Original Cure drummer Lol Tolhurst:

Like the  musical play Soul Train - The Hippest Trip in America, I hope that this 55th journey around the sun is just as hip as my 54th:

Leaving you Love, Peace and Soul.
