“God Bless You, Baby Girl!”


I had the pleasure of seeing a very dear old friend today. We had a very nice visit, lunch, and a walk. I got to hear some stories from one of the best storytellers I have ever known in my life.

We had lunch in Rocklin at Primo Pizza (http://www.primopizzarocklin.com/). We shared some soup and pizza.

Tomato Basil Soup

Pesto Pizza with Chicken, Red Onions, and lots of cheese!

Everything was served hot and fresh. The pizza had clearly come straight from the oven to our table. The portions were generous – we did not even come close to finishing any of it. I was quite happy to leave with leftovers.

Later we took a walk, then stopped to watch a few moments of a Memorial Day celebration downtown.

Lovely day for a walk ...

My friend had to work today, so I headed home mid-afternoon. On my way home, I encountered a homeless veteran at a traffic light in Woodland. His sign simply said, “Hungry Veteran.” I offered him my leftover pizza. I think he was as grateful for that pizza as I was with the time spent with a very dear friend today. He beamed a partially toothed smile and said, “God Bless You, Baby Girl!”

Happy Memorial Day!
