2008 Western Adventure


Day 32 - July 21, 2008

I took care of my chores this morning and headed over to San Leandro after lunch.  It was a little early to drop in on my friends, because they still a some time at work, so I found a hotel very close to them and got settled in.  By the time I got everything organized it was about time for me to give my friends a call and see if it was a good time to drop in on them.  I didn't give them a lot of notice, but I never know where I'm going to be at any given time, which is the sign of a good trip.  They were ready and I headed over to their place.  They still had a little work to do, but we were able to talk in between phone calls and other work related items. My friends, Dave and Joanne Walter run a huge storage facility, which is electronically monitored.  Their office looks like the control room at the space center.

They finally finished up and we were able to go in the house, which is right on the property....very convenient.  They live a beautiful old house that had bee completely remodeled before they moved in.  Massive 9 foot windows and 12 foot ceilings, and huge rooms.  They've actually got it pretty nice there.  The first thing the greeted me when I walked into the house was their two brown and white dachshunds.  The are definitely an effective alarm system, but they finally calmed down one the got used to me.  We sat and talked, and reminisced quite a bit before we decided to get something to eat.  Joanne suggested several places, and then we finally went where she wanted to go, which turned out to be an excellent choice.  Dave and I had some man food....a huge rib eye steak and fully loaded baked potato.  One of the best I've ever had.  We talked some more before finally left with a very full stomach.  Did I say that Joanne had halibut?  It looked very good and she said it was great.

After we got back to Dave and Joanne's place, Joanne made us some strawberry shortcake sprinkled with blueberries.....yum!!!  We talked until the wee hours, and finally called it a night.  I went back to my hotel and they scurried into bed.

It was a marvelous day, but I was so busy talking that I didn't take any pictures, except the one above.
