Yesterday was a full day. I spent a lot if time watching classes. The kids were fun to watch. I also saw some co-curriculars. The choir was amazing. They sang in the sanctuary. It was beautiful. There are three giant stained glass windows. Each represents a Person of the Trinity. The behind the altar represents Jesus:
In the evening, I went to the annual fundraising auction. It was fun! I had delicious food and a silky-smooth glass of tasty red wine. It was a great end to my visit.
I fly back to Baltimore today. I go through Chicago. Hopefully I won’t encounter any delays.

My plane trip was fairly uneventful. In the part of the trip from Atlanta to Sacramento, I sat in a window seat kind if far back. It felt a little claustrophobic, but it was a full flight, so there wasn’t much I could do about it.
The Sacramento airport was nice. Its baggage claim area had interesting decorations:
Yesterday was spent looking around Lodi. I had lunch with the couple who picked me up at the airport. We ate in downtown Lodi. I had some delicious squash soup. After lunch, I went with a school dad on a driving tour of Lodi. If there is one word to sum up what I saw it would be grape vines. Wait… that’s two words. There are a LOT of grapes being grown around Lodi. One of my tour guides said there were over sixty wineries in the area!
Today I’m hanging out with my new friends at their workplace.
The owner of my work place thinks Gus is so cute, he wanted to make a commercial with him in it. Yesterday, Roy, the commercial guy, came to my house. Roy was really nice. He put me at ease. He’s done all kinds of filming. He even did a commercial for the NFL during the Superbowl.
Roy didn’t bring a crew or anything. It was just him and his camera. He asked me some questions while the camera was running, then he had me do some beginning and ending lines. After that part was over, he just played with Gus while he ran his camera. He laughed a lot.
Roy said he would send me a link when he got everything edited together. He also said he would like to come back just to photograph Gus. He said he wanted to set up lights and a backdrop and do it all professional-like. I look forward to it.

I’m flying to California today. I’m visiting with some potential new friends who Called me and asked if I would come see them.
Wednesday morning is Trash Pickup Day. I used to be up so early I could take trash out in the mornings, but now I have to remember to do it at night. Sometimes I don’t get it done, and I can only grimace while I listen to the trash truck driving by. Last night, I remembered. I could rest comfortably this morning as I heard the sounds of my trash being taken away to the magical land of trash disposal.
An attached lid is a must. Otherwise, you will never see your lid again.
Well, we narrowly averted another snow apocalypse yesterday. The weather forecasters have really over estimated the snow by a lot the last couple of times. I’m beginning to doubt their powers.
It was still a busy day at work. I find that when I’m busy, I crave candy. I also crave candy when I’m not busy. Unfortunately, there is a machine at work that is full of candy. I visit it often, dang it. I keep telling myself I shouldn’t eat candy, but if I’m going to eat candy, I should at least go to a bulk store and buy a giant box of it so it would be cheaper than the machine stuff. But I keep not listening to myself.
There is no Twix in it because I had just bought the last one.
