I promised my family I would be in SO CA for the holidays. On the way I stopped at Willy’s a very good friend and relative (my brother-in-law’s twin brother). I was there a few days before heading to Orange County. Willy has a lot of neat stuff and one that he showed me how to use was his welder. This is Willy demonstrating the proper use of a welder.
Now he let me try my hand at it. Believe me it is not very easy, but I got the hang of it. However I am by no means a professional welder.
When I pulled up to his home I saw his beautiful dog Blaze running in the front yard. Blaze knew me from the time I visited them in September and she was very happy to see me.
Just before I took off I got this pic of Willy and Blaze. They were both very gracious host and hostess and I really had a great time visiting with them. By the way Willy is really a great cook.
His neighbor Ed gave me some great directions to get from Bullhead City to Laguna Niguel. I avoided a lot of traffic on the old Route 66. The speed limit was 55 mph but I stopped in the middle of the road to take this pic. There was absolutely no traffic going my way and only about a dozen cars going in the opposite direction.
