Earlier this year, Natalya came up to Ferndale to get her picture taken, and we discovered we had the same birthday, only 13 years apart. When she heard we were traveling down to the Bay Area, she wanted to get together again, and I suggested that we plan a shoot on our joint birthday. That was the fun part of my birthday. The bad part was discovering our truck’s brakes were smoking in South San Francisco. After calling AAA we waited for 30 minutes for the tow truck to arrive. Then once we knew where it was going to be towed, we tried calling people to pick us up. No one answered their phone and running out of quarters, we decided to go eat and try again later. We finally got ahold of Jasna and bless her heart she not only came and got us in the pouring rain, she brought hot chocolate too! Thanks, Jasna. We finally made it back to Mom & Dad’s around 10:30 or 11:00, making for a very long day. We originally stopped in South San Francisco to eat at El Torrito’s but we found out they closed the chain two years ago. Anybody know where you can get deep fried ice cream? I was really looking forward to it.
