Photos from last year’s Pow Wow Days parade; video from this year’s parade. The Citrus Heights Community Marching Band is a regular in the Pow Wow Days parade, and it’s always fun to see the musicians of all ages marching in unison down the street.
The weather has been warmer for a couple of days, which should be good news — but my morning hike was overshadowed by sadness this morning. Apparently a 13- or 14-year-old boy, out enjoying the warm weather on Sunday evening, jumped off one of the rocks into Lake Natoma below the Rainbow Bridge (seen above) and never resurfaced.

She could use some body work and a new paint job, but this 1951 Mercury was just too good to pass up when I spotted her at the auction in Roseville. I may never cruise down the street in this classic beauty, but she’s currently the pride of my car collection!

This, I feel, is the essence of these home movies — Dave Tatsuno, home movie maker This episode of California’s […]
