I'll never watch another movie set in San Francisco without thinking of the great vacation I just go back from. Joan Mansour, Lisa Zurat, and Linda Rook..coffee buddies of mine...and I went for 6 days to California. Our first day was spent doing all the touristy things like riding the cable car and taking a tour of the city, going to Fisherman's Wharf and Boden's sourdough bakery. The second day we took a bus trip to Carmel and Monterrey where we were drive by Pebble Beach Golf course on the 17 mile drive. The next day Linda's son Ron came and took us to a Monet exhibit at the art museum, had a great experience eating Vietnamese food at the Slanted Door, rode the ferry to Sausalito shopped, and bought our take out dinner at the Ferry Building. The last day we took a bus to Napa Valley and rode the Gourmet train through the valley observing all the vineyards and eating a fabulous meal. We had the best time!

This is a picture of my second mom, Rose, and her daughter Charlotte. Not everyone is lucky enough to get a second family, but Don and I were embraced by the Lashers and feel like we beong to them. Don's dad Paul passed away this year but we were so fortunate to know him for 5 years. The love this family has is a bond that everyone should possess. It is a very special family and we hold them close to our hearts.
