Clark, Barb, Denise, and Patricia at Sea Harvest Restaurant in Pacific Grove
Look below to see a closeup of what is over my left shoulder.
Soon after Denise took this picture, the crab hopped over lobsters and got to the other end of the tank.
We first met Denise at a bridge tournament in Santa Clara in August 2013. This is what I wrote on the blog at that time:
When Patricia and I were at a bridge tournament in Santa Clara last week, the first pair we joined up with to form a team were 2 very congenial ladies from Palo Alto. I exchanged email addresses with one of them, Denise, because she said that she comes to Sacramento occasionally to visit her cousin, and thought that we could play bridge here some time.
Tonight I had an email from Denise saying that she had a cousin who has been diagnosed with a stage 3 astrocytoma. Denise googled his neuro-oncologst, Enrico Lallana, and came across the force of erin blog:
Denise searched the blog further and found the recent blog “Erin’s Aunts and Uncles” and there she found photos of Patricia and me:
The cousin is also going to see Dr. Jennifer Clark at UCSF.
I had not discussed Erin and at all with Denise, so what a small world! Denise has joined the list of blog followers.
This is my entry where Denise accidentally discovered that I had a GBM connection:
We all liked our dinner at the Sea Harvest with generous servings.
Patricia and I played on a team with Denise and her partner yesterday. We had won the afternoon session after being down at the half, but were Knocked Out in the evening session.
Denise lived in Sacramento for a year or so while she helped care for her cousin. Erin met her several times when we had lunch with Denise, and Erin was quite fond of Denise.
