For Alver & Judyl

Freshly home from a bicycle/train trip to Santa Barbara, Peggy and I are sporting our new to us Goleta thrift store shirts as pine pollen dusts our Sunday dinner on the patio.

We visited our friends, Alver & Judyl, for four days, and my old pal, Janet, too, who lives on a tiny but lovely little boat in the Santa Barbara Marina.

Thank you Alver & Judyl for your warmth and hospitality, we felt so at ease with you guys and came home relaxed and thoroughly inspired by your talent and ceaseless creativity.

I'll be posting pictures of our trip in the next few days.

Our daughter, Jamie, made us the delicious green salad, with black beans & corn, which we spread over brown rice and quinoa then topped with salmon and Peggy's home-made mustard vinagrette.

PEACE & LOVE

Perhaps you can bottle that happiness and sell it?

You two look fit and well. Nice to hear you had a bit of time away--always nice to 'look at a different tree' as they say (although I reckon Dallas was glad to have you home!). Looking forward to the trip photos. SB is one of my very favorte places--been going there for R 'n R since 1959 (oh, am really dating myself here!).
Cheers!
