Pam and I got married! The wedding was beautiful, better than I ever thought it would be. Then the honeymoon cruise through the Caribbean was amazing! Now on to the real world, and so far it has been wonderful. She is the most amazing woman I’ve ever met. I’m looking forward to spending the rest of my life with her.

Pam and I are getting married in August! I created a wedding website for us, if you want to check it out. The ceremony will be small, just family and close friends, but we’ll be posting pictures there afterwards.
Met Pam in El Cajon after work yesterday. To both our surprises, the Car Cruise was going on. It was nice to sit outside of Por Favors, eat, and watch the cool cars go by.
The El Cajon Police Department always has a setup there, with some old police cars from the 50’s and 60’s. but they also had this low rider police cruiser. Pam got to watch it dance.
Hard to see, but this is a Jaguar with freakin’ 24″ rims. Weird.
They also had a side street with a bunch of bikes. Mostly newer Harley’s, but they had this old Kawasaki superbike, highly tricked out. Two stroke smoke and noise!
Lots of low riders showing off their airbag suspensions.
My dad would have loved this last one. Perfectly restored Nash Rambler 440. There was a young girl driving it. Her dad wins “Father of the Year”!
So we were out looking at tuxedos for the wedding, but didn’t really find anything we liked. Plus the price seemed kinda high for something you’ll wear for a few hours then return.
Then I remembered this place right down the street from my place in La Mesa Village called Gentlemen’s Resale Clothiers. Leslie and I had gone in during Octoberfest and I remember them having lots of suits.
So this is the one we found, for less than half what the tux rental would have been. Very comfy, and fit really nice. Pam wasn’t sold on the Chuck Taylors though.
My dad’s new project cars.
This one is a 1960 Nash Rambler two door station wagon. Smaller than it looks, but very cool. It was in great shape when he bought it, and is now in the process of customizing. His idea for it is fender skirts front and back (like a Nash Metropolitan). I really like it except for the under-powered original straight 6 motor.
The other car, below, is a 1954 Ford Sedan. It was pretty rough when he got it, but solid and complete. Now it looks great! It’s different from the other cars he does because its all original (no mods), but he thinks it will be worth more money this way.
I took Pam on a motorcycle ride this weekend up to my favorite place: Mesa Grande.
Mesa Grande is a road that winds between Santa Ysabel and Lake Henshaw, through the Mesa Grande Indian Reservation. The road is not easy to find, and both ends are tight twisty rides. But once you get on top, it is gorgeous. Gentle grassy hills with scattered trees, nothing but farms and a great road.
It’s hard to describe my attraction, and pictures never do it justice. There is an abandoned, boarded up store/restaurant at one end, and its my favorite place to stop. Julia and I used to get breakfast at Dudley’s Bakery and take it up here to eat. Very peaceful.
I tell Pam that if there is a heaven, then this is what mine will look like. When she wanted to go for a motorcycle ride, this is where I took her. It was a wonderful day.
My lovely fiancé, Pam, plays guitar and sings like an angel. I watch her every week at church and rehearsal, and she makes it all look so natural. Her guitar playing is clean and smooth, and she’s just as good on acoustic as on her electric. And her singing voice is beautiful, with a hint of country twang that gives her songs character.
I am crazy about her, and her music is just the tip of the iceberg.
A man walks out to the street and catches a taxi just going by. He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, ‘Perfect timing. You’re just like Frank.’
Cabbie: ‘Frank Feldman.. He’s a guy who did everything right all the time.
Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happened like that to Frank Feldman every single time.’
Passenger: ‘There are always a few clouds over everybody.’
Cabbie: ‘Not Frank Feldman. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand-Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy.’
Passenger: ‘Sounds like he was something really special.’
Cabbie: ‘There’s more. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody’s birthday. He knew all about wine, Which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Frank Feldman, could do everything right.’
Passenger: ‘Wow, some guy then.’
Cabbie: ‘He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Frank, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good.He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Frank Feldman.’
Passenger: ‘An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?’
Cabbie: ‘Well… I never actually met Frank. He died and I married his f###ing wife.’
So we had a team building week at my work, Anderson Direct Marketing, in the form of an Olympics. The event I entered was the “Tricycle Race”, where I placed First! The picture is all the discription I need to put!
And yes, the helmet helped with aerodynamics.
