California Here I Come















I'm packing my bag and heading to Santa Cruz, California next week. It's a work related trip to a place I haven't been before. Sounds dreamy, huh? Guess I should drag out my shorts and bathing suit. What else could one need in the land of sun, sand, and water?

Uh...apparently a heavy coat. Warm as we've been here, Santa Cruz has run about 20+ degrees cooler. Who'd have thought that Missouri would have more tropical weather than California?

Fortunately, I'm stubborn. I still haven't traded winter clothes for summer. After all, it's March. So I'll pack my cool temperature duds and have a final fling with fall-like weather out in sunny (or rainy) California.

Is this a topsy-turvey world or what?

Ooooh, Pat, I'm so envious....just like Lisa! I've never been to California and really want to go there someday! Can you fit a 5 ft Square Becky Sponge Pants in one of your suitcases?!

Love Santa Cruz! Have vivid memories of the board walk. Unable to sleep in the hotel because people partied all night. Have fun.
