Out with the old...
...and in with the new. It's the changing of the dishwashers in the Gehlke kitchen. Look, you can almost see the wax buildup on the floor in the reflection. Photos by Glenn.
Just add water. The big moment arrives as Roni prepares to start the first load in the new machine. Photo by Glenn.
Where there are rainbows there is also rain. We've had a lot of the latter lately. But occasionally Ma Nature throws us a bone. We caught this 'bow early the morning of Jan. 31 while stuck in commute traffic on Highway 4 in Antioch. Photo by Glenn.
There is a definite nature theme to this month's photo offerings. Here the bare upper branches of some willow trees along the Marsh Creek Trail stand out against a cerulean winter sky. Photo by Glenn.
The Delta still wears its coat of winter brown in February, but it is a beautiful coat nonetheless. Photo by Glenn.
The Gehlke Bros. Football trophy presentation ceremony Feb. 8 was sparsely attended, but plenty full of pomp and circumstance. Here Glenn celebrates his victory while Ben and Sean pay homage. Photo by Roni.
The 2003 football picks champ poses with his trophy. Think he's just a little happy to have it back? Photo by Glenn.

The Los Vaqueros hills are starting to green up, thanks to a wet winter. The oak trees are still a ways from leafing. Photo by Glenn.
Sisyphus ain't got nothing on Mighty Ben The Boulder Thrower. Once this kid gets started plunking rocks he's a tireless hurler. This was one of the medium-sized rocks that found its way into the reservoir. Photo by Glenn.
It was just a little breezy at the reservoir and a little chilly, too. Self portrait by Glenn.
We didn't count on a lot of rock climbing with this hike, but Ben couldn't resist tackling this pile of rubble. Sean waits for the photog to catch up. Photo by Glenn.
