Boating with Mom and Dad

Posted on October 23, 2009 by Stephen

My parents had not been out on our boat yet. My parents came for a visit on Wednesday through Sunday and Friday turned out to be a really nice day for boating. We wanted to take the boat to Lake Tahoe this past summer so we could give my parents a ride, but we figured we had better not take the boat because the wedding and all of the preparations would leave no time for boating.

Suasage and Suds Festival

Posted on October 04, 2009 by Stephen

On Sunday in San Leandro there was the annual Sausage and Suds Festival. The festival featured the local fire department (Alameda County) and the police department. They were handing out hats to the young kids. The "Biergarten" was set up in the Englander's parking lot. The first stop was the ID check table where I got a nice wrist band that identified me as legal to drink. Next up was the glass and ticket counter where for $20 I received a pint glass marked with the year's logos and three drink tickets. There was a wine table and of course a long line of beers on tap.

Dinner Out

Posted on October 03, 2009 by Stephen

It was my ninth anniversary last month so I took my wife out for dinner on Saturday. We have a tradition of eating at Massimo's in Fremont every year. We always ask to be seated in the main dinning room in a booth and in Ted's section. Ted is one hell of a waiter. His Caesar Salad (made table-side) is the best we have ever had.
