Linda was passing through Paso Robles today...she called me but I was not at home. I was with my grandaughters at soccer practice. I called Linda as soon as I got her message and she was about 20 miles south...we decided to meet for dinner at In N'Out Burger in Atascadero, she would have to turn around and come north just a few miles. We pulled up into the parking lot at the same time! It was great seeing Linda again and she told me about the wonderful wedding this past weekend for her son and now daughter-in-law. Linda is going to stop in Santa Barbara tonight (2 hours south of here) and then on to Palm Springs tomorrow where she will be spending 2-3 weeks helping a friend recuperate from surgery. She may stop by again on her way back home...

You guys are SO lucky to be able to see each other so often! Looks like it was a beautiful sunny day, too. I'm glad the wedding went well and I hope Linda's friend recovers quickly.

Hello Willemina!Nice pic of Linda and you at the In N'Out burger :) My cousin from Los Angeles is here visiting for the holidays and we have been out and about. No time to sit behind the 'puter lately lolYesterday was a public and bank holiday (to commemorate our 25th anniversary of Independence) and there was a good measure of fireworks on the eve (20th night) and then a huge parade yesterday to get things going. Joanne had to participate in the formal portion of the parade along with all of her high school. When I get the photos scanned, I will place this on my blog for all to see.I got an invitation to my cousin's wedding to be held in Los Angeles on July 7, 2007. Since I have never been to LA, it will all be new for me and I will definitely be able to meet up with you too at the same time. Is this sufficient advance notice for you?! lololHave a great weekend,Enid

Hi Willy, just popping in to see how your day in SLO went. Hope it was great. It's SO hot here right now - the last few days are in the mid-70s and it's not cooling down at night. I'd already put all my patio furniture away for the winter but thankfully still have a couple of fans out. And they're on full force tonight!

Hi LeslieI had a wonderful day in SLO thanks...I watched my daughter Lisa play soccer...the weather was perfect...not too warm and not too cold...sunny and clear. After the game we went out for lunch at Big Sky...one of my favorite places in SLO...then I figured since I was in town, I may as well go to Costco and Trader Joe's and stock up on all my favorite things. By the time I got home it was 5pm and my weekend was almost over :(I was just watching the news and saw that Paris Hilton was arrested for a DUI while on her way to an In N' Out Burger...It's a popular burger joint here in California.I picked my grandaughters up from school this afternoon and let them play on my puter for a while...they love Disney Channel.com...then we went to soccer practice. I just got home a little bit ago...I'm going to take a long hot bubble bath and I'll check back in later before I go to sleep...that is if I don't fall asleep on the couch :)

Willy,You look so different from you picture of you in that beautiful blue dress.I just read my blog first time in months. Thought I might try to get it together.I appreciate you offer of help and you may be hearing from me soon. I am one of those that wants to learn, so when time allows I will try.I have been running back and forth to LA, Calif for my mom, so not much time to figure this out with a new house, husband and all that goes with that. Love it, but I forgot how much work it is LOLI am trying to plant my yard. Everyone her has cactus and I only have one, that came with the house. I am trying to plant things that only bloom-hard to do here.I am from Washingtom State and miss the big beautiful yards and plants. Use to have flowers all the time. Now I feel like I live in a remote place where they ship in the flowers. Kind of like when we lived on Guam and they ship in the milk on Thursday-that was such a big deal :)Hope to meet you someday soon,Marty

hi willy,thanks for the tea and apricot almond tart. it was delicious, yummy! i love different teas, but my favorite is lipton also. i buy decaf though, but i will drink whatever other people have. i've been pretty much on the go the last few days. one of my neighbors died (32 yrs old with a 9-yr old son) and another neighbor, who was close to her, is really taking it hard. i've been with her and the funeral is tomorrow so i'm going because i'll have to drive if she's too upset.i saw where you don't put whites in the dryer. why is that? does the heat from the dryer do something to dull the white?i've been reading along even though i haven't done a lot of posting. trying to catch up a bit tonite and leave comments on different blogs. have a great day tomorrow.sylvia
