After a rest and soaking up of the ambiance, we returned to their home to sit and chat for several hours, until it was time to go to Isabella's to meet with the Higgins', and my wife's longtime friend Carli, who we rarely see (even when she was living in LA). We spent hours at the restaurant talking, telling tales, and the gang shared all kinds of remembrances. It was a real pleasure. Then, Carli had to go, and so the rest of us went to the Reid's and drank wine and chatted until well after midnight. Again, a pleasure.
We're packed. Flight leaves for Ontario, CA, in about four hours. I have to get off now, and pack up this laptop. Home soon to have brushette make much of us, and complain about where have we been!
