While I didn’t get a good view of any Condors at Pinnacles, shortly after my arrival in Bakersfield my Aunt invited me to get a great view of some.

She had great tickets to see Bakersfield’s hockey team the condors play. It was a fun match and of course there were a few scuffles but nothing unusual for a hockey game. The refs were actually pretty good at stopping things quickly during the first half but by the second they were getting tired which allowed this:



It was a fun evening. Though a couple of weeks later it was topped by the tickets my parents had for a Merle Haggard concert.

They played straight through for a couple of hours, he even brought out a fiddle for a couple of numbers at the end.

The crowd was enthusiastic and it was a great show.

Things are looking pretty good in Bakersfield, I’ve found a small mobile home I’m fixing up, and  have completed getting signed up for classes at Bakersfield College.
