Fact: The Eiffel Tower can be 15 cm taller during the summer due to thermal expansion, meaning the iron heats up, the particles gain kinetic energy, and take up more space.
We did some work in the office in the morning, but at noon we departed for Loma Linda to meet up with Mary’s old girlfriend and attend a funeral at the University Chapel. Although Mary did not know the gentleman very well, her friend BJ drove in from Arizona, and we met at the chape.
It was a beautiful ceremony; he was the Director Of Music for several organizations, and the coral presentations were terrific.
We departed Lona Linda around 4:00 PM and headed home with almost zero traffic; it was a miracle on a Sunday evening.
We talked to Vicky and Colleen on the bat phone and introduced BJ to the crazies. I decided Orange Hill would be suitable for dinner, and indeed it was. Mary chose to warm up a bit before being seated.
I think we had a great seat with a view of the ocean, the Atlantic.
I slipped outside for a second and got a snap of the view from the patio; it was too cold to dine alfresco.
We went crazy with wine and food this evening. The ladies filet mignon and I tried the waiters special )I asked home for his favorite – I call it a “surprise me”) It was terrific.
Returning home, we talked for another two hours, which consisted of laughing and giggling.
We pooped out about 10:00 PM and hit the sack. BK will hit the road about 10:00 AM to avoid the infamous California traffic.
