|The last 2 weeks have been busy ones for Erin. Colleen arrived on Mon. Aug. 25th to stay with Erin
while we went to a bridge tournament in Santa Clara. On Tuesday Clark and I picked up Patricia in
Oakland where she had been staying with my sister Joan and her husband Ralph, then had lunch
with them and brother Jim and sister-in-law Pat at the Lake Merritt Hotel as we did last year.
Colleen and Erin hung out here for 3 days and Deke arrived on Thursday. Erin went with Colleen
and Deke to Camp Sacramento where 18 1/2 year old Wheeler is working for the summer. Erin
stayed 2 nights in a handicapped room. Brandon and Beck went up and got her Sunday and Erin
was here when we arrived home a few hours later.
Pictured back in Sacramento on Labor Day are Colleen serving Deke fish stew as Patricia and
Erin watch. Patricia left Thursday to return to Denver. So, for 3 days Erin had many conversations
with Patricia which always leaves Erin very upbeat. Would that the world had more Patricias!!
