Huntington Beach vacation Time with two Grandsons November, 2013   This is a post about my November 2013 vacation in Huntington Beach California.   I am here to visit my daughter Sue, her husband Chris and my 2 Grandsons Max and Jake.  I will be here for Thanksgiving and head back to Ormond By The Sea on December 4th.. The highlight of the trip is getting to spend time with my 2 Grandsons and Sue and Chris.  I was happy just to sit and watch them play or eat or whatever they were doing.  Reading, playing with the Hot Wheel cars and playing with the little train sets were all fun things we do almost every day.   Max, who is 4, had surgery on his hand yesterday to restore movement of his thumb so his activities are severely restricted for the next month.  He is doing well and has already ...

A Lone Bike Waits for its Surfer - Speechless Sundays     Growing up in Newport Beach, it seemed that all of us owned at least one beach cruiser.  How else could you avoid the crowds of summer clamoring for parking and make your way  to beach quickly, without drama to join your friends in the summer sun?

      I am so excited for Mr. and Mrs. G who just closed on their reverse mortgage saving their Huntington Beach home from foreclosure and updating it with a needed new roof.  They purchased their home 27 years ago and only had 3 years left to pay on their (1985 rates) mortgage.  Enter health issues and the recession.  As a small business owner the recession impacted their business revenue greatly.  On top of that some serious, though temporary, health issues really put them behind the eight ball. Unable to make their mortgage payment the current lender began foreclosure proceedings.  Also unable to afford repairs, the roof leaked causing damage to the home.    House rich and cash poor they have turned to a HECM Reverse Mortgage to get them back on their feet and secure their retirement...
