|Brad Pitt ad infinitum at the Panama City airport|
I spent several days in Santa Monica, seeing a dermatologist and a travel doctor.
I then flew to San Jose and was met at the airport by my longtime friend, Cathy Bonner. We worked together for years, but had not seen each other in a couple of years since she had moved to Santa Cruz. We had a great week, just catching up and doing a few touristy things like wine tasting, walking near the beach, having lunch on the Santa Cruz pier, and visiting the quilt museum in San Jose. We also rode through the redwood forests on the Roaring Camp Railroad.

After a fun time in Santa Cruz, I flew to Phoenix to celebrate Thanksgiving with my in-laws. It is the one time of year I know I can see everyone. We had our holiday dinner at Philip's house, so the next generation is taking over! I also had a nice lunch with Marilyn Colvert.
