On Thursday, Linda Casey, our friend who lived in Rochester 15 years ago and now lives in the East Bay area took us for wine tasting in Lodi. We tasted at 3 different places and had lunch. We had a wonderful time with our friend.
On Friday, a classmate of Tom’s from McQuaid High School came to visit. Nick Iuppa is an author like Tom and has worked on the West Coast for many companies before retiring. His wife, Ginny and Anne hit it off wonderfully as the two guys talked about their careers. We found that we had a lot in common including traveling, teaching, and grandchildren. It’s really great when Facebook friends can meet face to face.
