Home for the Holidays
Where did the time go? Before we knew it, it was time for us once again to pack up and move along. This time back to California, right back where we started from. I got some more work done in the National Archives and the New York Public Library collections.
We went out to JFK airport using the car service that we have used before, giving ourselves plenty of time to get there. A good idea in New York! Of course, because we did that, there was practically no traffic and we had a long time at the terminal before boarding the flight to San Francisco. Had we been on a tight schedule...well, you know what would have happened.
The flight was on time and Charlie met us at the airport with our car. We went to get his car and then to stay in Oakland with Shawna, our niece. On to Medford, Oregon, the next day. David flew in from New York on Wednesday evening.
Priscilla and the family outdid themselves with the Thanksgiving banquet. Twenty-nine adults and five children!
On Thursday, Penny and I go back to San Francisco for six weeks. In a temporary apartment, in Noe Valley. We no longer have our rented house in the Sunset. Just our storage unit. Since our plans have evolved and we are headed back to New York in late January, we will be spending a lot of time reorganizing our storage unit and getting out the things we want to take with us for the five weeks that we have given ourselves to find an apartment. Think warm clothes. We arranged the walkabout thus far, to be in places where it was warm. So my San Francisco sweater collection is mostly stored. You get the idea. So much for endless summer!
