It took Jake about three minutes to learn to ski
Dad (TWC) hauled Jake (in purple) and his cousin Clay off to Knotts Scary Farm on a Wednesday evening. The boys are three months apart. Clay had to drag his tired butt out of bed the next day for school even though his uncle kept him out until 1:30 am.
The Boy, Cousin Willie, & The House Blond at Big Nose Kate's Saloon in Tombstone Arizona.
The Saloon is located in the former Grand Hotel, where the Clantons and the McLaurys booked rooms the night before the gun fight at the OK Corral.
Big Nose Kate was Doc Holliday's girlfriend.

Jake and TWC in the back seat of the truck, rocketing across the Arizona desert at a high rate of speed. Dad was tired.
Jake is doing his doggedly determined best to get the hang of his cousin's surfboard. He should work that hard at school. Taken at Huntington State Beach. That's the House Blond with the boogie board.

Skimboarding with a boogie board at Napili Beach. Napili is beyond Kaanapali near Kapalua. One of the best, if not the best, beaches on Maui. More about skim boarding here.
Jake fells the 2005 Casa de las Rocas Grande Christmas Tree. BTW, yes, those are socks on his hands that he’s using for gloves. Come on, we live in California, nobody can find their gloves when they need them.
Jake getting ready to take a turn around the track in the Stone Truss Company Nascar Shivolay. Taken June 4, 2005 at Irwindale Raceway. Jake also got the West Coast Choppers guy, Jesse James, (that married Sandra) to autograph his shirt.
Jake's computer got fried because we thought we had a surge protector but it really was just a power strip. Every time the ceiling fan came on the surge tried to turn on the computer. Then someone would push the off button quickly. It didn't take long to scramble the thing so badly that even the recovery disk wouldn't work. So Jake took the HD out and I put it into one of my computers as a slave drive and re-fortmatted it. Worked fine ever since.
