Who Says It Doesn't Rain In California???

We drove thru rain and wind and arrived at the home of Bob's daughter and family about 8:30pm Thursday evening.   His son in laws 50th birthday party is Saturday evening and his daughter is busy with the final preparations for that.  It's going to be at a restaurant in Arcadia, CA and about 80 people are expected. We've decided to take the camper over there, incase we start to fade before the party is over.  It doesn't start until 8pm, then there's going to be all kinds of other things, like a slide show, a couple games, dancing, etc.  I think I'll be in the camper & reading my book by 11pm.

Friday, Bob took me to Trader Joes to do a little shopping.  They have one type of cold cereal that I love and that was in the box that didn't get loaded into the camper.  Then we stopped by the Pasadena Goodwill and I found three more good books....does anyone know of a 12 Step program for people who constantly buy books?

It rained off & on all day and the temperature was right around 56 degrees.  Gosh...the weather is better up in Washington this week.  And these people here in souther California say it always rains up there.

Did I mention that we watched the lunar eclipse the other night in Las Vegas.  It was quite cloudy but were still able to get a good view of it.  And tonight we were all marveling over the beautiful full moon.

Well, that's all for now folks...it's very late, so I'm off to bed. 

Until next time..........Linda

Hi, If you find a cure for one who keeps buying books tell me I just can't stop either wonder if its a substitute for buying cigarettes. Enjoy the rest of you holiday.   Love Joan.

I saw the eclipse between passing clouds here in Miami and it was beautiful. I can help you on the book buying addiction. Buy the book "12 Easy Steps To Stop Buying Books After You Buy This One".
