Vigo and Milo in the backyard

Vigo worked on this for over a year; Milo took care of it in less than 10 minutes.

Charley's greatgrandfather would never have gone for this on his pool table.

Charley's first Belmont Shore Christmas Parade







One of the highlights of the Holiday season. Belmont Shore (the beach community within Long Beach where Jamie grew up) reaches back to its small town midwestern roots for the hokiest parade in Southern California. Unfortunately, better management has stolen some of the charm (e.g. no more 15 minute gaps between entrants punctuated by high school bands rushing to play 3 minute songs in 2 minutes for the local cable tv broadcast). It was particularly cold and long this year : Charley got red-faced, Grandpap got sick and Grandma had to pee, so we didn't make it to the end.
