Chuck & Marion come out every year for an appointment in
San Francisco, after which we usually see them for sailing
or wine tasting. This year, Chuck couldn't make it so Marion
brought Laura instead. We went down to see them on what turned
out to be Saturday of Fleet Week. After lunch at the Ferry
Building, we went up to the 38th floor lunch room at my
office and watched the Navy jets fly around the building.
Jen had even brought a birthday cake -- Ellie's, Laura's and my birthdays
are all within a week -- though office security can be proud of
the fact that there isn't a match or lighter to be found anywhere
on the premises, so we had to fake the candle blowout.
And while we watched the jets, we drank a bottle of Berringer syrah that
Chuck picked out for us a few years back.
