A San Francisco Welcome from Karl the Fog

Hello, Karl! I haven't seen you in a while.

You delayed my flight by an hour, but I'm happy to see you anyway. Considering how often I fly this leg, I hadn't had a delay in a long while. Guess I was due. :)

Reeves's first Costco Hot Dog!!

Somehow, Reeves has gone his entire life without trying a Costco hot dog. Gina and I put an end to that today when we brought him to Costco for lunch.

Still just $150 for a hot dog and soda. They haven't raised their price since my family started getting these on the 80s.

The verdict? He likes it! Hey, Reeves!

Happy Birthday, Grandma!!

Happy 84th Birthday, Grandma, and Happy 60th to my Uncle Wes!!


I'm so happy to be spending the day with my beautiful niece, Evelyn, before she graduates from high school and leaves for college in the late summer.

A Rose

When Dick and I come home to San Francisco, we almost always try to go to La Taqueria on Mission Street for the best burritos in town. We've been going here for well over 15 years together.

The place is always crazy busy. If I'm really lucky, we'll see the owner working at the register. Whenever I do see him, which hadn't been in a long time, he gives me a huge smile. He calls me Beautiful, asks how we are, we catch up quickly (because there's always a long line) and he pulls a rose out of the case that he keeps by the register. He trims off the stem, and thorns, and gives me the rose as I leave.

I don't see him very often, but when I do, his sweet gesture has always been so appreciated, and makes me so happy. :)

So yes, we had burritos for lunch, and I was the lucky girl who came home with a rose.

Dick and I are back in SF for a quick weekend visit. We had a great dinner with David, Miguel and Spencer, then ended the evening with drinks at Twin Peaks.

My visit with Gina's baby chicks!!

Gina got some baby chicks this weekend, and I want over for a visit. The chicks are one to two weeks old.

Gina's dogs, Terminator and Patton are very curious about them, but still gentle. Cuteness overload!!

Mother Goose and her Goslings

Gina and I went to Home Depot this afternoon. As we were leaving, we noticed the cars ahead if us were slowing down. When we reached the front, here's what we saw.

So cute!!

Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the Moms out there, but especially to my beautiful and amazing Mom who gave us the gifts of wonder, joy, and especially unconditional love. Wish I could be in Milpitas today to celebrate with my Mom in person, but sending her all of my love from afar.

Love you, Mom!!! xoxo
