The Bay!

So, I just opened up my mail and to my surprise was a Christmas card from my Tia Linda. She and my mom have been best friends for 50+ years. In 1987, my mom sent me to San Jose, California to spend time with my Tia Linda and her children Dion and Sylvia. It was my first time at the Bay. What an awesome experience. I will never forget the first time walking around Fishermans Wharf and hearing Rodney & Joe Cooley blasting from someone’s car. Everlasting Bass was making the ground shake. I was living in Bakersfield and the summers were always 100 degrees or more by late May. So, walking around San Francisco was strange for me because I needed a sweater it was so chilly.

The Golden Gate Bridge was incredible. I remember driving over it and being in awe of the size of it.

I’m so glad my mom sent me up there to visit for a couple of weeks. I didn’t want to come back home. I took the train there I think or maybe it was the Greyhound.

I’m so grateful for that experience.

Write it down. Take a picture. I don't give a f*ck!
