|Theo & Casey.|
I would be quite sad to say good bye to all the neighbors' cats that have adopted me, though. Casey and Theo are quite a double act, and Ally the alleycat has gotten used to following me home from her end of the alley and getting some tasty cat food after I had put the bike in.

I'm delighted that the San Diego Opera survived something of a death and transfiguration this year, of course, and the new opera season opens next week with Puccini's La Boheme! If you had never tried opera before, there isn't a more newbie-friendly opera than this most romantic piece that inspired Rent!
I also made a lot of amazing people on bicycle in 2014, many of whom had become good friends who somehow keep riding with me even after they had caught on to my weird tendency to stray up local (rather steep) hills... A few friends even steered me to cool unfamiliar patches of town and up some really gory roads that, before I started biking in 2012, I would have given me a heart attack just looking at them! Here's a bit of my 2014 year on the bike.
And to make it even sweeter, I can now say that I have finally had a year without a high speed downhill crash... Yey! I'm afraid a few of my friends had spent some time on the tarmac this year, though. Luckily everyone has recovered okay without lasting damage. Whew!
Thanks very much for stopping by. Here's my idea of a year end firework display...
Wishing everyone a healthy and very happy 2015!!
