Although we were in California for "business", we enjoyed wonderful times of conversation with new friends.

Our hosts in California treated us sooooo well! On Sunday night we enjoyed delicious Swedish pancakes expertly created by Nathan, our chef for the night.

A wholehearted thank-you also goes to Janet who made us feel so welcome, and was a wonderful hostess.

BTW - We ended up bringing home fabulous strawberries, cherries, and apricots - they're soooo yummy! The best ever!

Nathan & Janet served asparagus along with the last meal we had at their house. It was absolutely the best asparagus I've ever had. Now, I usually eat asparagus just because it's something different to serve once in a while... but, this was amazing, it was actually delicious. I'm going to look into growing our own asparagus. (Anyone have any tips about growing asparagus?)

California sure has its perks!

We also enjoyed a delightful afternoon relaxing with friends.
Thank you, Eric & Heather!

Rog & I stayed an extra day so we could take in Yosemite... definitely worth the winding roads to get up there... :-/

How great Thou art! How majestic are Thy works, oh Lord.

Then it was time to head home. Our flight was delayed because, as the pilot stated, " Chicago has two seasons - winter and construction."

Because of our delay, we missed our train, and had to wait an hour for the next one...

We waited...

. . . and waited!

Did you know that quite a few rabbits live on and around the train tracks in Chicago??? "Wildlife Chicago style" at 10:30pm!

Sounds like you had a great time and maintained your good humor to the end of all that waiting. It sure is good to have you back!

You are too kind to say so many nice things about us. We truly enjoyed having you stay with us. We were edified often and blessed constantly while you were here!

P.S. Only those who travel for more than 1000 miles are guaranteed sweedish pancakes. :-)

Well... I've heard that Fletch will be in Illinois soon. When he comes back to California I'm sure he'll have traveled at least 2000 miles!

Nathan, I guess you better get cooking!
