sunny california

yeah my ass!

well got back sunday afternoon.
totally , TOTALLY awesome time.

in a nut shell:

got to lori's house friday morning and we headed out to houston IAH! got there way early and enjoyed a beer to take the edge off the nervousness.

lesle met us there and we went and ate at chili's. then off to denver!
great flight. landed in denver. where's the snow? none to be seen.
enjoyed the lay over and at at a tex-mex place in the airport. called cheri p and was told ashley s was delayed like 4 hours! OMG! poor honey.

went to the gate and waited for the SAC trip. we met JAMES and cool guy that was listening in to our conversation. his wife knitts. so he knew about us scrapbookers.

on the plane ride, there was some AF guys heading out for training and one poor guy fell asleep. well, they jacked with his face on the plane. lmao.

got to cali and cheri and Amy picked us up.
totally awesome to see cheri again. i love that woman.

went to cheri's work to get our scrap crap box and stop for beer. (baby beer)
and then off to patti's house. wow! what a neighborhood.
she was so awesome to open her house to us and threa a wonderful welcoming party.
omg! i saw girls i thought i would never meet. JES, ERINJ, DEANNA, STEPHANIE H, JENK, THERESA

just fantastic time.

we did not get much sleep friday night so i woke up early and took the first show of the day. yeah for me i had hot water!
Monika, Lori and i went to the store to help patti set up. that was so cool to set up and see the store first hand. i was blown away by the product and supplies. total scrapbook heaven.

about 12ish cheri had to go to her house and i rode with her and she took me to FOLSOM prison. wow! now that we neat. so old and just wonderful. and for the record johnny cash never spent time at the prison other then to have concerts. Cheri and i did not know!

so back to the store and more scrapping and visiting. when i left with Cheri there was half a try left of won tons. when i got back there was only 7 left. that Lori jack ate them all.

we did challenge and door prizes.

it got tense for a while but i will not remember the time of stupidity, because that is what it was, but i will forever remember those lovely ladies and the awesome trip to California to see my friends for the Internet.

i mean where what would i be doing if it was not for those friends. my buddies my pals.
it may be spastic. but they are my spazz's.

oh and California in February....cold and rainy. but so worth the adventure.

thanks patti for the welcome and the goodies. i will always remember the woman i met that was from the hippie distrct of san fransico.

and cheri p! words could never express the total thankfulness to you my friend.

lesle: thanks again. you made it possible
