Hi Everyone! The plane didn't crash on the way to California or on the way back as you can see. Here's a shaky picture of the Golden Gate Bridge out the window of the airporter as we crossed the bridge.
On my flight out, the plane backed away from the terminal then stopped and back to the terminal we went. The pilot said "mechanical trouble" was the cause.
Forty minutes later the mechanics left and we were on our way again...Do you think I ever relaxed the whole way from Dallas to San Francisco after that? ...NO WAY!!!
Mary's Pizza ShackMost days, we ate our favorite soup-and-salad combo at Mary's Pizza Shack (our favorite late-lunch eating place) and enjoyed being a couple of Golden Girls together for 10 days.
Mary's Pizza Shack is a small California chain now, but we remember many nights at the original little "shack" Mary started right in our little town back in 1959. The original little shack is gone now, this location took its place in the late 70's.
You can see the very old tree the patio was built around in the photo below. It is a spectacular tree and every kid in our small town has probably climbed on it at one time or another. There's a sign now asking that no one climb on it due to its age.
In case you're wondering, my two sisters and I have all asked mom, over and over, to come live with one of us or to at least let us move her to one of our towns so one of us would be close by. So far, no dice, but we're hoping she'll change her mind soon.
Hope all of you in the path of the snowstorm in the East/Southeast are ready to batten down the hatches and let it pass by. We're all praying it passes quickly and leaves you with only a beautiful snowfall to admire. I can tell you California got plenty of rain recently, it rained every single day I was there.
Thanks for dropping by!
