Clark and I joined Steve and the boys for a delicious New Year’s Eve dinner with Steve’s folks at Mike and Judy’s cozy new home in Woodland. Erin didn’t feel up to it and is saving her energy for a big day tomorrow at Shannon’s. The drive to Woodland via Hwy 5 past the airport was picuturesque with a gorgeous sky. Their house is only 4 or 5 years old, so everything looks brand new and spotless, though Judy says that it was not very clean when they moved in.
Judy served a marvelously seasoned sword fish as well as succulently red tri-tip. If I still ate meat I would have joined Paco and Clark with 2nd helpings.
Tommy chattered the whole evening long …. non-stop. Paco showed his maturity by just shrugging off his little brother’s antics.
It was a delightful evening. Erin was alone for 3 or 4 hours and sent a brief message, “You so the writing”, which I took as meaning that she wanted me to write the blog, and that she had survived alone.
