The Monday of Memorial Day we spent the evening at the Ground Control Anniversary event at Union, so that was pretty delightful. We hung with a few folks, sang at a distance (not on stage), and came home happy.
The next evening was a delightful dinner with the Axelsens. Good food, and good conversation.
Later in the week we had the opportunity to go to an early showing of Wonder Woman, a film that we really enjoyed. I urge anyone who hasn't gone yet to get out there and see it!
That Friday night we went out with a couple that we've newly met, the owners of the equestrian center where forestcats has been enjoying some horse camaraderie. Once again we had a wonderful time, with tasty food and interesting talk.
Sunday was the get-together with my sister Laurel for her birthday, and she wanted a stroll through the Huntington Library, and lunch there. It was a lovely day, and we spent time in a variety of the gardens as well as seeing a display of materials from the author Octavia Butler. I put in several miles of walking there...
Last Thursday night we got out to do the weekly food truck event at Gate One of the Fairplex. I had a delicious lobster roll, followed by a dessert crepe from a different truck. It's a beautiful setting with plenty of parking.
I had to work Saturday, but when I got home our friends the Archers showed up to take us to a restaurant called Neptunes in Artesia; the food once again was very good. Following that, we went to a horse auction where my wife was disappointed that the prices were a bit on the ridiculous side.
Next Sunday is a Guardian episode at Dungeonmaster, and I encourage you to join us!
