Hammock relaxer

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015


Here’s Mia relaxing on a hammock during our recent trip to San Diego. About which more below. Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken at the Bahia Hotel in San Diego, California, and part of my famous Event and Vacation series.

Wonders of WordPress. Today is actually a week into July. My, have I gone a long time without writing. I’d like to write more and I have plenty to write about. I guess I’m just focusing more on other things. Maybe that will change.

So let’s talk about June. It was the happiest month of the year! My birthday happened! I’m 58 now! Katy and Clifford got married! Joanne’s birthday happened! She’s an undisclosed age now! Mia visited me!

Let’s take them one by one, shall we? I’ll start with my birthday. Joanne gave me an unbelievably cool present: she took me to The Richard Petty Driving Experience. Go ahead, click on the link. I’ll wait. . . . Okay, you’re back now. Doesn’t it look like fun? Well, it was. I went 140 miles per hour. Lots and lots of fun. I loved it. It’s an experience I won’t forget. Thanks, Joanne!

Also, Andy came to stay with me for my birthday weekend! Fun! Thanks for coming, Andy. It meant a lot to me.

And now: the wedding! Yes, Katy and Clifford officially tied the knot. It was a beautiful wedding and we were thrilled to participate. Congratulations, Katy and Clifford! I love my favorite daughter and I love my favorite son-in-law!

And now: Joanne’s birthday and Mia’s visit! Mia came home from the Bay Area with us after the wedding. She stayed until July 1st. Much of that time was spent in San Diego. Joanne took Mia, Ryan, Kristina, Corey, and me for a few days at the Bahia resort. It’s a beautiful place. It was there when we lived there, but I never got to see it. Mia, Joanne, and I had a Marina Suite. We were on the first floor. It was a matter of about five steps from our sliding door to the sand and another dozen or so to the water. Of course, that was marina water, so you wouldn’t want to go in it, but still: beautiful!

The actual beach was about a block and a half away. We walked down there a few times during the weekend. We walked along the beach, waded in the water, walked the boardwalk, bought some beach junk, and rode the roller coaster and bumper cars at Belmont Park. It was a great stay and a happy birthday for Tina (the 25th) and Joanne (the 27th).

Now we’re home and Mia is with her other grandparents. It’s awfully quiet around here, but it’ll noisy up soon enough.

And I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity: attack housecat!

See you tomorrow.
