    Not an A-37

    Hmm... I honestly can't tell. The thing in the photo you posted looks like a Douglas something-or-other* (to me), but it could just as easily be an A-37.

    Mrs. H has been cleaning out some old, old files lately -- as one does during the Time of COVID ;)
    She found a photo of our house in Milpita, CA ("House 2.1" :) ) -- which I believe is the photo that the listing agent took of it when we put it on the market in early 1991 (and moved back East). She helped us buy the house when we bought it, and she helped us sell it, too, two years later. She made a lot of money off of us in a pretty short time ;)

    Houses like that in that -- quite nondescript -- neighborhood were goin' for about 1.2 million pre-COVID-19. :|

    I mean, it was a nice enough little house (4 BR, about 2000 ft^2 by "California-style" assessment of size, sittin' on, like, 1/6 of an acre or something like that) -- but 1.2 million... :p

    Freakin' Silicon Valley.

    That's one benefit of living in the higher latitudes. I'm still trying to sneak-a-peak myself, but it's at such a low point in the sky, light pollution and city haze is making it difficult. And the Earth is getting further away from it every day.

    What is a Monza Alex?

    I'm not sure......

    That was a base-level Cavalier that I bought used from a neighbor in MD when I needed a car (grad school days). It was a horrible car in almost all respects. I still kind of liked it.

    The best thing about that car -- when the water pump died one day on the way to work in Cambridge, MA (and to make a long story short) it was repaired at The "Car Talk" garage (Good News Garage) in Cambridge, MA, which was literally across the street from the administrative offices of the biotech company I was working for in those days (1991 or 92). :)

    I stand corrected.... I almost forgot about the Cavalier....

    So I found this frog the other day.. I can't ID it but would assume it's arboreal because it was resting in a tree but I have never seen one like this... Is it in some stage of shedding it's skin? I just called it a Watdufluck Frog....

    If he's still around in a couple weeks after shed he may likely change colors and be identified easier...keep an eye out on him and keep taking pics

    Most amphibians shed once or twice a month and can be more. Usually it happens very quick like, unlike other animals which can take days to weeks to completely shed.

    Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing!

    I want to take a trip out West with my family when this is all over. It would be cool to rent an RV for some of the trip.
