Update On Lucas...He's Like Nailing Jello to the Wall

To clear up the confusion about where Lucas resides, it's College Station, Texas. The pictures further below were from last year in California and the most recent he had sent me until yesterday when he finally sent me this recent photo of him, his girlfriend, Kristen, and her brother, Brandon. Oh boy, this is the first photo he's sent me of her and I'm tickled to finally get a look at her. She just left last week to study for a semester in England. They miss each other terribly but Lucas will go for Christmas and maybe another trip while she's there and hopesully the time will pass quickly and easily. These would be considered newer photos because they are so recent as to be from last year when Lucas was living on the Monterey Peninsula and going to school. Here's one from surfing at Andrew Malera Beach in Big Sur. After a tough bout in San Francisco and a great recovery in Oregon, Lucas decided on Monterey as his landing point for the time being last year. He attended MPC just as I had 30 years earlier! It takes Lucas about 30 seconds to make new friends and with the help of Tasha he quickly fit in with the Big Sur campers and surfers.
It was a perfect follow up to recovery. They did a lot of hiking and camping in Big Sur, he's most comfortable in his skin in this kind of setting and he soaked a lot of it up. He still really misses it living in Texas but he'll be back to Monterey. It took me four tours to get it out of my system, he's only on his third...

So Lucas in is CA now? Why did I think he was in College Station? When I look at that photo, I keep seeing penguins....

I don't think I like you working so much...you don't blog enough.
