So, here’s the news. I’m up in Northern California visiting my family. Tomorrow we are celebrating the marriage of my eldest daughter Diane to her awesome guy Sam. Cheers! 😂 I’m even giving a teensy speech, which I typed up, printed out, and have squashed in the bottom of my purse. It’s a bit cheesy, but I don’t know the audience and decided not to subject them to my edgy Southern California jokes.
Last night we went out for Mexican food here on Alameda. Diane and I split an enormous plate of nachos with extra guac. They put shrimp on the nachos! This was odd and yet delicious. But… where was the cheese? At first I was having so much fun eating the shrimp I forgot to notice. Diane had a gigantic cocktail so she was a little oblivious too. But then she said hey where’s the cheese? We poked around in case it had melted into invisibility, but no. No cheese.
Anyway, it’s tons of fun staying at the kids’ new place with their doggie and kitty and my younger daughter, her hubby, and my sweet little granddaughter too. That was just for one day/night though. Today we’re leaving for the hotel, which is out in Marin or something, for more family fun times. I’m not sure exactly what’s going on, but I will just show up, smile, and do what I’m told. I’ve heard there will be Italian food, which, one assumes, will contain lots of yummy yummy cheese. 😍
But it is Northern California, a strange land where they have just outlawed manholes in Berkeley, so one never knows.
