The Bearded Dragon

This lizard belongs to my great niece's boyfriend, Denny! They are both
total animal lovers. This poor lizard has big time spine problems and this
was totally due to poor animal care. Not the right food, not the right lighting

Spike will have to have his tail amputated soon. (about half way)

Denny adopted him a few months ago.

Spring has sprung in the city

Yesterday we took a 5 hour walk around the city. The first two
pictures were at the Embarcadero Building. Awesome flowers.
The third picture is a beautiful arrangement Brent and Miriam
brought over. The fourth picture is a tree I like and I am
thinking of putting in the back yard for some privacy.

A link to more pictures!


China Town!

We were a little gross out at what was in the China Town market place.
I guess it just regular stuff to the Chinese folks but I did not like it.

Meeting with our cousins!

My cousins came into SF with some of their family members and they
gave us a call so we could meet them. That was really fun to run up to
the Fisherman's Wharf area for 4 hours.

Elena and Ben are Ben and Lollies children. Ray (is Lollie's brother) and Carol is Ray's wife.

We had a long day. Gretchen and Frank at the top of our stairs. Gretchen
is doing great! Believe me I was watching her carefully. Here are the love birds at the Golden Gate Bridge. Gretchen walked on the GGB. A picnic over by the water - an unusual tree in Sausalito - a beautiful coast picture. The last picture is a building in Berkeley.

Meeting Brent's in-laws from Spain!

Brent and Miriam had her parents visiting for one week from Spain.
They only speak Spanish so it was a bit hard. Poor Miriam had to
translate and we kept asking lots of question about Spain. Miriam's father,
brother, and mother, Miriam then Brent. Kevin, Grandsons Derek, Dylan,
Amar, me and Gordon. Fun day.

We are home!

We have been gone for one month. It was so much fun being in San Diego, Yuma and Paso Robles. BUT we are home now and Gordon has the flu. I think we passed it to Daniel our son in Riverside then we passed it on to Nancy. I am so sorry. So we are just chilling at home.

Daniel's restaurant is called Creola's. Creola has a high rating for their food. Our son is a really good cook.
