So this weekend we had just a wonderful visit with our old neighbors Jack and Eileen from down in S. Calif. They made the 18 hour drive to come up and stay for a few days and what a treat!
Not to mention the wonderful treats they brought. Eileen is such a wonderful baker and brought us containers filled with biscotti, pralines, brittle and wonderful bottles of wine. My tummy is very happy I can tell you. I cannot believe I didn’t get a picture of all the goodies, but darn if Derek and I didn’t tear into the biscotti like the kids in the movie ‘A Christmas Story’!
Then Jack, who is very talented with wood working made Derek and I a set of pens. These pens are gorgeous and I must say write very smoothly. I’m very proud to pull one out and sign things. These are truly elegant.
We explored Eugene did some shopping, indulged in fried chicken at Papa’s Soul Food Kitchen, and enjoyed a leisurely lunch at King’s Estate Winery and just had a wonderful visit! So I must say, if you have friends you haven’t seen in a while, do go visit them. If they are far away then pick up the phone and call. No no, don’t text message them, or Facebook them actually talk to them. I think you’ll be surprised how you just may make their day. I know Jack and Eileen made our weekend just wonderful.
