Good Reads Goal

one by reading, and the other by
association with smarter people.”

Congrats! You have read 100 books of a goal of 100!
2015 Reading Challenge

The beginning of the year, I made a commitment on the Good Reads website to read 100 books by the end of the year. Well, I’m happy to report that I was able to reach my goal.

I enjoy reading, so it wasn’t that difficult to read all the books I read. Although, I would have liked to read more of the classics. But while on my reading journey, I discovered some new authors and ended up reading most of these new authors books.

My plan for 2016 is to continue reading more with the coming year. However, I need to do more writing this year than reading. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to concentrate more on my writing.

I figure, if I put as much effort as I did to reading this past year into writing, I’ll be able to finish my novel by the end of 2016. With any luck, by this time next year maybe my novel will be on someone else’s Good Reads goal.

Pug Patty  Three Pugs Makes a Pool

Redondo beach has a population of approximately 66.7K people. That population consists of people from a wide diversity of social classes. From young to old, from the very rich to the very destitute. Within this diversity there’s one common bond that ties all of us Redondoites together. That common bond is our love of canines.

When you walk or ride along the Esplanade, you’ll encounter all kinds of dogs and dog owners. From the pampered pooch to the homely hound. All the dog owners appear to be happy and their happiness is reflected in their dogs.

This weekend I saw a man riding his bike pulling a toddler trailer. I’ve seen this guy cruising the Esplanade before, but I hadn’t paid much notice to what he was trailering. As I approached the man from behind, I noticed there were not toddlers in the trailer but three pug dogs. Just had to share this particular pooch sighting with my fellow bloggers. 

This man and his three pugs in tow give the true meaning of rollin with my homie.
