San Diego and Del Mar Trip
We have to escape from the desert heat, so we have taken trips to Del Mar, San Diego and Big Bear where is is cool and breezy. We are SD Padres fans and took in a game at Petco Park. When we left in early July, it was 120 in Palm Desert. We came home on Aug. 6 and it has staying around 104 or so and dry, a relief.
Father’s Day in the Desert
Rick, Kierstin and Annika came down for the day and we celebrated Father’s Day at Las Consuelas in Palm Desert. They make a huge margarita and I had one. My wife Bonnie gets to tend to our granddaughters managing their every needs.
The Temecula Wine and Balloon Festival over Memorial Weekend was well attended with over 60 balloons filling the sky in the early morning. What a beautiful sight. We spent most of the day there on into the evening with our son Rick and his family that live in Temecula.

Annual Rotary Golf Tournament at Desert Willows Country Club
I played a round of golf last Friday with a group of Rotary Club friends for a fund raiser. Our club raised over $3500 for local community projects that focuses on youth and seniors. Our club’s foundation, which I am president, donates over $20,000 per year back to our community. Desert Cancer Foundation is one example of our donations. The Desert Cancer Foundation helps local cancer patients who can’t pay for treatment & medications.
Sure took a lot out of me, as I hadn’t even held a golf club for over 6 years. Barely made it. Good thing the tournament was best ball. The weather cooperated and was in the 90’s with a good breeze.
Yes, that is a cold long neck beer.
2006 Spring Break at the River
We spent time playing games and catching up with her activities, both at home and at school. Her Mom and Dad miss her a lot as she misses them, so we are taking her home today. She misses her Bichon Lexie and her younger sister Annika.
