Vacation is Over

As most of you know, I work for Northwest Airlines. The flight attendants did not pass their contract, I decided it was wise to come home a day earlier than planned in hopes of avoiding a CHAOS manuever and I don't mean Chris' cat. So I am back and already missing...

The wonderful California weather and Monterey Bay

Colin, my great nephew

Eric, his older brother

We went to Las Vegas for two days and just did nothing. We sat by the pool, and yes it was over 100 degrees but no humidity. Gambled a little bit, it is amazing how long $5 lasts on a penny slot.

Then we flew to San Jose very early on Friday am. We drove to Big Sur that nite and had dinner at the Big Sur Roadhouse. It is owned by a friend's daughter and she is one great chef.

Then on Saturday, we went to the San Jose Giants game for the 1st Annual Stitch and Pitch nite. Funny thing we couldn't find the knitters section, but had a good time anyway.

Sunday, it was back to Monterey with the boys and a stop at Dennis the Menace Park

Eric, Colin and their dad Jeff in an old engine at the park

And you know it wouldn't be complete without Boo....

My mom is home and I am glad, Megan brought those gran cats over and they drove me crazy

Finally I hope to have the red sock knit along sign ups ready around the 15th of this month.

Seems like a nice vacation. I hope the contract negotiations work out!

Hi Louise
Thanks for popping into my blog to say 'hello'.
You too have a beautiful cat. Boo's eyes, they are gorgeous!
