Blogging running behind

Good morning, sports fans!

I have not been able to get online and post and upload photos, etc. for a while. We have been running about and visiting and connections have been iffy and I've been exhausted. Great trip (but not restful). Monday I visited dear friends from Saint Cuthbert's and said my farewells to Phyllis (please continue to keep her in your prayers). I also spent some time in San Francisco and did a nostalgia dinner with a colleague at Rene's Restaurant in Albany, eating the same dishes we had there a few years ago. Incredible orange scallops, huge and fluffy and delicious in a great orange sauce. Later that night we saw photos of our godsons' family traveling in Sweden.

Yesterday we drove down 101 to San Luis Obispo, a charming town where Cal Poly (California Polytechnic Institute) is located as well as the Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa. (More on St. Louis later.) We have a surprise stop here in that friends, learning of the road trip, invited us to spend last night with them. What a delight this has been. We all worked at the same company at one point or another (I for 7 months, they for years). Wonderfully gracious hosts and this is a fun visit and I am getting back to it now. Just wanted to check in.

There are photos but I will have to download them then post some tonight.
