January 16, 2015

Today we managed to stay in the Tri-valley area and visited with family and friends. First off we went over and picked up George and then over Linda's friend Terry's house. Linda and Terry were going to breakfast and George and I decided we were going to go to breakfast too. Terry's husband, Joe was there, so that was kind of nice to be able to see him, but he apparently had caught some sort of "bug" and we didn't want to risk catching anything ourselves. Our visit there was no more than maybe 10 minutes, though we were still able to get a couple of pictures.

Yesterday I think I said I was going to be able to put some pictures out on the blog, but discovered I had left the cable at home. This means to dumping of the camera on to the laptop, and I'll just have to wait until we get back to post some shots.

After breakfast, George and I did a little running around and taking care of errands, and then I dropped him off at Safeway, where he works. He really loves his job at Safeway, and apparently they think he is wonderful. We are very grateful for that, as we know he will be taken care of without us having to be around.

We did go over and see Larry and Joyce, Linda's brother and his wife, and give them a little send-off, since they are going off on a trip. It was another short visit and we were gone in a matter of a few minutes, and off to our next stop. We went to visit a friend of ours, Judy, at New Oceanic, a Chinese restaurant. She is an amazing little lady who remembers us and many details that continue to surprise both of us.

When we left there we headed over to Karen and Mike's place to have some dinner, with them and several other people. The food was great and it was really nice seeing everyone, and I hope we get to do it every time we come to visit. The day was pretty much done and we headed back to the hotel, and that gave me a chance to blog. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
