Big weekend Santa Cruz

Glowing cat eyes


Thats just Nuts! Tasting oil, olives and tea, seeing the Art

It was first Friday again last night, got out of the house on a awesome night in Sanity Cruz. I slanged some wine in Sand city until four, came home and grabbed Steve and hauled him down town, so we were a little late. We hit up the museum, and met up with Rick Duncan

That boy aint normal! Duncansong.com

and his friend Nina. Rick had bought a new Uke and is working on bohemian rhapsody. We wandered up stairs on Nina’s recommendation to see the Wood working show. This is awesome!   I was staring mindlessly at some cabinets hanging on the wall,  thinking, I remember seeing this piece at Cabrillo… I look down, its says Patrick Stafford, who is standing right behind me. http://www.cabrillo.edu/~pstafford/PatrickMay312007.html

Duh! the room was full of people, it was warm, I told Patrick good thing he was wearing a kilt, and was he going “commando’? He thought it would be cooler if he was. Rick and Nina took off to Lincoln street to The True Olive Connection and we caught up with them there. What a blast! We agreed the pomegranate balsamic would make a wonderful salad. Then we dropped in on the Nut Kreations next door. Beautiful presentation, make your own trail mix.  We caught up with Rick at happy high herbs on Cathcart. Cindy gave us samples of Damiana tea, Rick blasted the customers with uke tunes while I chatted with some new friends. If you are looking for alternatives to drugs both legal and ill-legal check this place out. It’s decorated in yellow and purple, full of info, thoughts, advice and products. They don’t sell cannabis. We had run out of time so we had to leave. I didnt get to try any wine, but thats Ok, sometimes wine puts a different slant on things, and I’ve tasted most of what was down there last night.  Santa Cruz Mountian wines are wonderful, grab the pinot noir when you see it. If you are into the wine scene and you’d like to blog about it I would welcome contributions! Ok, it’s Saturday morning There’s a new Green tea and honey show for today, it’s about blue berries…as Dr. Shunney says…yummy!  Also, there a funny story about the bachelorette TV show and a mis-sent text from JP Rosenbaum on this weeks talking ish podcast.  2000 downloads yesterday from this website!  Ok…I’m gonna have a snack, clean up and head back down town for the Cabrillo art and wine! See ya there?    ~Brooke


Still More Adventures of “Boner”

another note from admin:

I’ve been informed I misspelled “drivel”. Spell check says it’s spelled with an “E”. Is there a point in this? nope!

Hi again. This is Boner, the smartest dawg on the block. Today, I’m gonna tell you about my adventure in the great outdoors.

My servant decided last Sunday that I needed some
fresh air and a change of pace. So he put this stupid leather rope around my neck and took me to this big grassy area with trees and kids.

Well, after tripping him a few times, and wrapping him around a few trees, I had him talked into removing that annoying rope and letting me roam as God intended me to do. (We didn’t name him after us backwards for nothing!)

So there I am, whizzing wherever I feel and sniffing whatever I want, when this big ugly mutt tries to get a sniff of me! Well, I don’t go for the stupid male types, and I let him know it. Next thing you know, we’re going at it, growling and biting and having a good old brawl.

Then this old bat that belongs to Uglymutt starts hitting me with her handbag. So I grab the darn thing and run like hell. Wound up dropping it near some smelly guy in a nearby alley. Then I went home.

Seemed like days before my servant found his way home. In fact, he was dropped off by one of those black and white cans the humans travel in. He looked like hell. I let him know I was glad to see him, and told him to get me some food. Then he went to sleep.

Later, I overheard him talking about getting some “arrest” for “lease law violet sun” or some damn thing.

These servants! Always getting into some kind of trouble. What can you do?

Anyway, this is Boner saying, If you can’t see them, you’re barking up the wrong tree!
