The lack of pictures this month has been due to weather and vacation. We had a nice trip down to San Jose to visit the family. Rained all the way down and back, but the only vehicular casualty this time was a headlight that went out. I guess after 11 years that’s acceptable. We visited Carol and John in Hollister and threatened to steal several of their cats. Then the visit moved to our family, staying with Derek and Jasna. I had novice luck at poker, beating Derek twice at his latest passion. We ate a lot of food, played more games at Mom’s (getting trounced by Grandma in pinochle as usual but pulled off a surprise win against Mom in Trivial Pursuit) and ate even more food. It was nice having time with the family again.
