Colleen, Deke, and Wheeler arrived in Sacramento about 12:30 am this morning from Boulder. They were too late to get a rental car, so caught a cab to the Citizen Hotel downtown. Then today Colleen and Wheeler walked about a mile to pick up a rental car at Enterprise.
The purpose of their trip is to pick up Colleen’s Mazda and get it ready for her and Wheeler to take a road trip back to Boulder. Colleen has an appointment at DMV tomorrow to get it properly registered,and they need to get the brakes checked.
This afternoon Colleen and Deke dropped Wheeler at a friend’s, then went to have drinks at the new Wildwood Kitchen and Bar in the Pavilions. They joined us for an early dinner at Cafe Bernardo. Then we all came home here and watched the debate.
Erin got to talking with a charming lady with an English accent. She had been in this country for over 40 years. Erin told her about working in London for 6 months in 1992. They chatted for quite a while.
Wheeler is spending the next couple of nights with us. Deke flies back to Boulder tomorrow, and Colleen will stay here until she is sure that the Mazda is ready for the trip.
