About Bob

I'm just a guy living the dream in Redondo Beach, CA. After putting in 30+ years at a large aerospace company, I am now retired, and can do what I'm interested in. My main interests are writing and music. I'm a cellist and play with local amateur Symphonies and Theater groups. I've also got the urge to wander with my lovely wife Laura. This blog is going to be mainly about our travels via RV and other means. I'm sure I'll flesh this out more as time goes on.

“You really think this movement of enemy fighters to Capitol Reef means they think we can’t see them anymore?” Earl asked.

“I do,” the General said. “They probably think we’ll crack it again, though. This rapid influx of fighters smacks of panic to me. They want to accomplish something before they’re exposed again. I can feel it.”

“We gonna hit ‘em?” Gabe asked.

“That’s going to be my suggestion, but you guys are going to need some help,” he replied.

“Perhaps we can do something similar to what we did to that away team,” Jeb said. “Set up an ambush, and slaughter them. They aren’t too bright.”

“Sometimes yes, sometimes no. We’ve got to assume that they are watching for that,” General Hogan said. “Judging by how many of them have infiltrated the Pentagon and other parts of the government, they might have access to all kinds of capability.”

“Let’s…

“You got another Ethernet hub, by any chance?” Frank asked Jerry, as they were sitting around in the clubhouse.

“No, I don’t, but I’ll bet that Jake does. Why?”

“I thought it’d be nice to be able to connect more than one machine in here.”

“We could set up the Wi-Fi. Jake was talking about that yesterday.”

“That’d be good too, especially for the RV spaces, but in here, a hub would work fine. Let’s go ask him.”

“Okay,” Jerry said. The two men got up and walked out the door, heading for the trailers. Jake was sitting under Dobie’s awning with Gabe.

“Good morning, guys,” Frank said.

“Good morning to you,” Gabe said, smiling.

Jake nodded, smiling too. “Heard about General Hogan. Good news.”

“Sure is,” Jerry said. “Hey Jake, you wouldn’t have any Ethernet hubs in your warehouse there, would you?”

“Yeah, I have a few,” he said…

Daylight. Terry was startled awake by the wind, rocking the trailer. He could hear it rushing through the trees. Tornado season? No, it’s a few months before that starts. He raised himself enough to reach the curtains and pull them back a little. Dust was blowing across the park. He saw Jake, Gabe, and Dobie walking, hunched over a little, holding their hats. They were heading for the clubhouse. Princess followed Dobie closely, looking around while she walked.

“A little breezy,” Trish said lazily, turning towards him, watching him look at her form under the sheets. “You like?”

He answered her with a kiss, which she broke quickly, laughing.

“What?” Terry asked.

“Our breath,” she said. “Geez, doesn’t that bother you?”

“No,” he said, kissing her again. She started to get into it now. He moved closer to her.

“My dad isn’t outside, is he?” she whispered.

“No, I saw…

“So you’re telling us that Howard took off?” the Sheriff asked.

“I can’t think of any other reason that he wouldn’t answer his phone for this long,” Kurt said.

“I wonder if he knows that those home movies are down in the dungeon,” Malcolm said.

“I was wondering the same thing,” Charlie said. “Why don’t we get the lineup started for the app upgrade? We can talk about this more later.”

Everybody nodded, and started towards Frank, forming a line. Jane watched for a few minutes, and then walked over to Jasmine.

“Time to go mess with dinner?” Jasmine asked.

“I was just thinking. I wonder if anybody told George and Malcolm about Earl Wilson.”

“That’s right, his name was on the registration for that tow truck. Crap, how could we have forgotten that?”

“They’re first in line for the apps. Let’s catch them when they’re done.”

“Okay,” Jasmine said.
