A thought about my blog; I think that in order to continue blogging I have to branch out beyond the vlog format. I find that it's too restrictive and time consuming to post only video blogs. There have been many stories that I have not chronicled for want of a video. It's time to try something different. -Judi

Last time we were in Oakland visiting Carmen we went bowling. Jeremy is an excellent bowler but as you can tell the rest of us range from mediocre to downright terrible. That didn't matter, we had a great time. Actually the entire visit was special. Carmen just got a job as a waitress at The ButtercuP restaurant in east Oakland and at the time was preparing to start her second year at Mills. We went to lots of fabulous restaurants and went to see the King Tut exhibit at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. It's always wonderful to spend time with Carmen and Jeremy and I can't believe how patient and accommodating Jeremy was with the parents of his girlfriend. Thank you Jeremy.

Earlier this year Gene and I were invited to be part of a team of judges for a pie making contest held by the Olympia Pie Baker's Guild. Kathy Giglio guided us through the process and explained how the guild was formed. After the judging, pieces of pie were available for sale and there was an auction of all of the entries as a fundraiser for the Thurston County Food Bank. The pies were delicious, it was a treat to get to sample all of them. I hope that the Pie Baker's Guild holds this event again next year.
