Good 30º clear sky morning. Yesterday we topped at 77º.
A dear friend, Ike Saben (LASD ret), passed away Thursday, 10-31, after suffering a brain injury from a fall. Ike had worked at Lakewood Station and then was an Investigator at Homicide. At our Laughlin reunions he was our main photographer for a number of years. RIP Ike, you will be so missed. Love and hugs.

Yesterday I met up with Mike Hannan and Jennifer Murphy and Jeannie and Bill Patterson at Taqueria la Guacamaya for lunch.....
We were finally celebrating Mike's birthday, that was in May. At the time of his birthday he was still recovering from the 5 shots he took from that carjacking murdering adam henry!
Bill, Mike, and Jennifer....
We had a great lunch and fun time.
Interesting about Seahorses....
Seahorses are marine fish in the genus Hippocampus. In Ancient Greek “hippos” means "horse", and “kampos” means "sea monster". Seahorses live in temperate and tropical waters all around the world. They prefer areas where they can find cover from predators.
Seahorses swim very poorly, rapidly fluttering a dorsal fin and using pectoral fins (located behind their eyes) to steer. The slowest swimming fish in the world is the dwarf seahorse who swims at a rate of five feet an hour. Because they are slow swimmers and easy targets for predators, they often hang on to sea grasses with their tail to stay hidden.
Seahorses suck up food with their snouts. Their eyes are like those of a chameleon due to the fact that they move independently of each other.
