Scotts Valley, CA to Fairfield, CA

Way back in 1979, there was a girl at school named Marianela.  I really liked Marianela, but lost touch with her after graduation.  Through the magic of social networking, Manelli (as she goes by now) and I have become friends again through Facebook.  She lives in Pleasanton, California, and since I was driving through, we met up for lunch.  It was good to catch up after 34 years!  She introduced me to some of her friends who work nearby.  It was nice to meet DeAnna and other nice folks in the real estate world of oldtown Pleasanton.

I'd never been to Pleasanton before, and I gotta say, it's really nice!

My dear old friends Ken and Nancy have lived in Fairfield / Suisun for many years.  Since that's on the way to Sacramento, I stopped and visited with them for a spell.  We drove to a nice, family-owned Mexican place in oldtown Suisun by the Bay, and right when we walked in, I found my dream girl!  Wow!  The only problem with her is that she was a little stiff.  Lighten up, girl!

Ok, Nancy is taking the photo of me, my date, and Ken.  Ken's alright with this so far.

Now things are getting a little out of hand...or maybe IN hand!  Ken doesn't know how much more excitement he can handle.
