Yesterday was fun. 28 miles from here to Wonder and to Kates Redwood Bar and Grill. A couple scenes along the way...

I arrived first, next came Jeannie and Bill and their friend Paul, who is up here for a few days getting his father-in-law settled into a care facility...
Me, Bill Patterson, Paul Holt, Jeannie Patterson (Sherry, we missed you!)
The rest of the gang showed up...
L-R Tom Corso, Dale Yellin, Dee Yellin, Jim Jacobs (LA Deputy DA ret LASD Reserve), Oli Jacobs, and nut Kathy Corso. (Can't get this gal to pose straight! LOL)
Lunch was GREAT! I had a Santa Fe Burger with jalapeno mayo and pepper jack cheese, pickles, lettuce, onion, and tomato. OMGOOD!!!! Their fries were also just the BEST! Crispy and yummmmm....
Bob Havercroft joined us and his Santa Fe Burger was with American cheese (he's such a patriot!)
He didn't want his picture taken! (Ok, Bob, so I made it little!)
I really enjoyed the food and our friends. The owner is Kate who has the place for sale, along with the house in the back as she wants to retire. Her daughter, Mame, is one of the cooks. Nice nice people!!! Got me hooked on those burgers! Will be going back.
A group of bikers showed up, not outlaw, just Harley riders. All friendly. One old dude with Semper Fi on his vest. We chatted a minute.
We all departed, Bill Jeannie and Paul off to an undisclosed rendezvous for a drink, Bob to get his "honey do" list taken care of, and the rest of us went to Dale and Dee's for a glass of wine on their deck. Beautiful!!
It was really nice to see the Jacobs. Been a long time. I worked with Jim as a Reserve and he also rode with our Choirboy MC group. Safe trip back home guys! xo
All I know. Happy Hump Day. Nuff said. Ciao.
