Tournament day 2

Because everything was pretty much finished last night to get ready for today’s lunch and awards and after I made sure the pink polka dot napkins were on the table, I decided to head home.

Tournament Day 1

Maria and her guest Shelly ready to go early Thursday morning.

The only thing I needed to check on: are the pink polka dot napkins on the table? Yes.

Dottie, Jacque, and Maria.

After lunch, I removed all the centerpieces from the tables.

After the tablecloths had been replaced, I put them all back. Later I helped Maddie and her team get the tables ready for the next day’s lunch. Then went to back to Maria’s for an end-of-day-one celebration where I ran into and visited with an old friend from Rio Linda Senior High School – Sue Kelly.


Coffee with Linda and Adrienne.
Gymnastics with Carson.
Soccer with Sophia.
And a shopping trip to Green Acres Nursery. Thais was a consultant for not only me, but also Leah and Jeff.

Friday travel

This morning, Thais and I took Carson to Milestones
then took the Capitol Corridor train to Berkeley and Lyft to our favorite fabric store.

We had lunch at Toss Noodle Bar,
and little window shopping on 4th St before taking the train back to Sacramento. We picked up Carson and went directly to Avery’s Little League game.
Fun day!

Westfield Village Bike Club

This was my last bike club meeting at Westfield Village with its most faithful member, AngelLillie. I was so happy Deb Banks rode with us.

Riding with AngelLillie has been such a delightful experience that I wanted our last meeting to be special, so the three of us rode 2 miles to Joe’s Crab Shack in Old Sacramento.

Molly Wagner from WALKSacramento joined us.

On our way back,
I noticed some smoke, we stopped, evaluated, and called 911 …
a small crowd gathered,
the fire department arrived,
and put out the fire.
After being asked a few questions by a fireman, we rode on to where AngelLillie lived. I smiled as I listened to AngelLillie invent various scenarios about being heroines on bicycles, riding around, saving the community. When we said our final goodbyes, one of AngelLillies’s neighbors came by. She said, “We just saved all of West Sacramento from being burned down.” Smile. I will miss you AngelLillie.

Project Ride Smart – the LAST day

Sue Schooley and Lorge Quant presented the day’s activities. Not a street ride but other fun things you can do on a bicycle.
My helpers for the Slow Race for one class: repeatedly they raced to shout “On your mark, get set, go slow!”
The person who crossed the finish line LAST without touching a foot to the ground was the winner.

Lorge did Rock Dodge (with mixed success):
Sue did the Bean Drop.

Mother’s Day gift

“Mom, what do you want for Mother’s Day?” My backyard finished. Thank you Thais who planted one focal-point plant here (and hooked up the irrigation)
and created a couple of additional groupings of pots & plants:
