And as grand daughter had asked for slippers for her doll I whipped these out as well.
On Saturday after leaving the art gallery we headed to Martinez to the doll hospital. It was closed! But there was a sign in the door saying to bring packages to the house next door so I took a chance as we'd traveled a ways to get there. The nice lady next door called the owner of the shop and I got to talk to her. She said what I needed would cost all of $18 and to leave the doll with Betty, her friend. She'd call me when it was done the following week!
I looked in the window and saw so many dolls in there. I can't wait to go inside and visit them all.
From there we went to my daughter's in the bay area where I got to visit with my cousin Barb and her husband Mike who had flown in from Colorado. Mike was to be the "speaker" at the fundraiser we were headed to next. Mike is a former major league baseball player...and as this was a Jewish fundraiser for scholarship tuition's for kids who could not afford to go to this school it was interesting to this audience to hear a Jewish baseball player talk about his history in the league. You can learn all about him at the link I made above!
My son-in law-and daughter (left) were the hosts for the speaker. We'd been hosted by a couple in their lovely home who put on a delicious vegetarian meal for 14 of us first down stairs. After dinner we came up to their living room to eat dessert, also delicious, and listen to Mike. My daughter is introducing him here.
Mike is on the right under the interesting art that was hanging throughout this home.
Some of the stories were funny and you can see how everyone was enjoying what he had to say!

The next day, Sunday, my brother came up to play cards.
He arrived at noon and left around 9:30 in the evening.
I won exactly one hand, the last one!
He left the true Champ!!!
and on Monday
