Holy cow!

Last night, we caught the biggest raccoon Ive ever seen. I’ll update you when I get a photo, but I’m still learning my new iMac and am not up to speed on photos yet. New camera, new computer, new software. Give me a bit. I even missed Harvest Monday.

I did manage to get my column written and filed on my new computer, and sent an invoice to the Orange County Conservation Corps for my work there, so it does the two most important things that I need it to do. Work stuff.

Speaking of which, I’m running behind this morning. We’re graduating 102 Corps Members this morning. They have earned their high school diplomas and are ready to venture forth into the wide world beyond. I dearly love those “kids” and am so proud of them for overcoming obstacles and persisting in getting an education. I’m proud to be a tiny part of their transition from gang member on probation (background of many of them) to functioning member of society. More later.

About Lou Murray, Ph.D.

I'm a professional writer/photographer, avid gardener, and active environmentalist living in southern California. I am retired from writing a weekly newspaper column on environmental topics in the Huntington Beach Independent, but I am still teaching at the Orange County Conservation Corps. This blog chronicles my efforts to live a green life growing as much food as possible for my husband and myself on a 4,500 sq ft yard that is covered mainly by house, garage, driveway, and sidewalks.

    You scare me 😛

    • Mac, I scare you? You should meet the kids I work with! LOL. Not everyone can work with them, but I dearly love my homeboys and homegirls. They are making such good changes in their lives. It is really hard, transformative work that they’re doing, and I’m thrilled to be a tiny part of it.
