December 30, 2008

Hi to those who are still following this blog!

We hope you are enjoying a pleasant holiday season even if you have to go back to work for a few days. We had a nice family gathering at Susan (our daughter in Whittier, Ca) and Raul's house over Christmas Eve and the days following. We parked our RV in their driveway and dwarfed their house behind it. Santa came and the little ones were excited to see him.

On Friday night, we took the adults (three of our children and their wives/girl friend) out to Lawry's Prime Rib Place in Beverly Hills. That place seems to be popular these days with certain football players. The place was big, a bit loud and crowded. The prime rib was delicious, but the side dishes were just "so-so" for us. All in all, it was a nice evening get-together.

We are now in Long Beach, CA at our favorite RV spot -- right by the ocean and the convention center. This afternoon we biked over to the Queen Mary.

We even were able to connect with long time business associates in Long Beach -- Judy and Ron from Jerry's film days. Jerry made lunch. (See picture.)

Tomorrow we leave for Pasadena where we will have a spot for our RV right on Colorado Blvd. We will be able to see the Rose Parade from our front RV windows. Our children and grandchildren will be joining us. Jerry will be making breakfast for everyone on the coach.

Our 2008 RV trip is almost over. Like my sister said, we seem to be "dragging our feet" getting back to Cambria. I expect to update this blog one more time before ending this great trip. Until then, we wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year.

Jerry and Mary
