The San Francisco Signing

I thought I would do a little spring cleaning. I have a few posts I have been wanting to share for a while now and this seems like just as good a time as any to start. This is actually one of the more recent ones. And, it’s from back right before I went in the hospital, when I was in San Francisco. I flew out there for  two main reasons.

This was one of them.

These two were fun. Completely dedicated cake pop makers. Seriously, check out all their color-coded bookmarks. They had a game plan.

I want to thank everyone that came out that Saturday afternoon. It was rainy and miserable, but you wouldn’t know it by all your happy faces.

Cutie pie here in the middle makes make cake pops, too … and all by herself. I think she was 10 or 11. Impressive.

They put together a great recap and interview from the day. Check it out here.

This is Paul (brother of Mike) Myers and his beautiful wife, Liza.

Liza works at Chronicle.

And Paul, well Paul really is Mike Myers’ brother. Just imagine him with brown hair and they are almost like twins. Paul might be cuter though.

This is just a bunch of books.

On a table.

Stacked and standing.

I’m sorry, but I’ll never get tired of seeing that.

Sorry. I forgot my side smile … and wave.

Kidney Update: Mom gets her testing this week. I still have to meet with a couple of doctors and I think that’s it. If we both pass, I guess I could be looking at another hospital stay soon. On another positive note, I’ve lost ten pounds since these photos. I guess dialysis has it’s perks. Well, not really dialysis, but the diet I’m on because of dialysis. I’m estranged from my dear friend, chocolate. Unfortunately, we haven’t spoken in a while. And I rarely get to talk to my dairy friends either. But soon we will make amends I know it.
