Sonoma, California


We had a grand trip to Sonoma for a little wine tasting cruise. First we spent a few days in San Francisco in a boutique hotel complete with cabaret lounge on the first floor. What fun! We felt as if we were back in the Moulin Rouge in Paris! I know the Lion would have enjoyed this; however, he was enclosed in his enclave of leather a bit to the North…..oh well….you can’t always have the Emerald City. Okay, back to this story…..we then boarded a wonderful ship and sailed into the mouth of the Sonoma River and each day were picked up and taken to various wineries for tours and tastings. On board the ship we were treated to such wonderful events and lots and lots of wine education and tastings (and tastings and tastings and tastings and tastings), the staff was wonderful and we so enjoyed ourselves!








 Until next time…………..salute’…………prost…………..ciao!


Ecatepec, Mexico


We went to visit Diego in Ecatepec, Mexico and stayed at the beautiful La Fiesta Hotel

All of you who know Diego, know what a loving and wonderful person he is. So this was not just a visit…..Diego had planned a huge party……….of course!

He met us at the hotel in his blue bug…………I loved it!

We spent most of our time at his sister Irma’s home high on the hillside overlooking the city.











We ran about in his blue bug and visited some of the sights.










Then it was time for the big party!! and BIG party it was…we ate, drank and mostly sang and danced the afternoon and night away!










The evening ended with Diego presenting us a beautiful flower arrangement. What a wonderful person he is!
