Harvey Milk Movie!

Gordon and I went to Castro Street to see Sean Penn who is making the
Harvey Milk movie. The whole street is being transformed to the earlier time
when Harvey Milk was living here. The old cars were brought in and the stores
are being made over to look like the early 70's.

What a fun, fun day & evening.

We had a wonderful dinner. Miriam and Brent made Paella. It was so good. Jeannine made the best meat balls in world and Carol made the best spaghetti
sauce and Monte made the very best salad dressing ever. Juanita brought a raspberry cheese cake that was sooo good. Amar and Kevin brought a BIRTHDAY cake for Gordon. This was a big surprise because we had a family dinner just to get all our family together to meet Carol, Monte and Jeannine and meanwhile we thought we should have a surprise birthday party for Gordon. He was so surprised and that made it more fun than ever...

What a great time we had with our dinner with our family. I just love
the way all the ladies help me out so much. Setting tables, making and
serving dinner. It is a piece of cake when everyone chips in.
Jeannine, Carol, Monte, Brent, Miriam, me, Gordon and Garrick.
Thanks for helping.

True Love Documentary!

This is Ted and Greg who are independent film makers. They are
doing a documentary called, "True Love". They came today and film
Gordon and I for the documentary they are doing. We told them that
Gordon's cousins Carol and Monte have been for 52 years and we thought
they would have some real input in the documentary and Ted and Greg we
so happy to added them on board. Now I hope we don't cut out. It should
be out some time this year.
