It was a pleasure to read all the Social Networks last night reading all the messages about Mother’s Day and how it was celebrated. Most Mom’s were taken to a nice dinner out at restaurants, BBQ’s, Country Clubs, Boats on the river, etc. One Mom, our own Mary West went hiking to photograph the Beautiful hills of Northern California with her sons and attending a picnic-BBQ. I had the great thrill of running into some old friends from Fair Oaks at the North Ridge Country Club. Warren McWilliams and his lovely wife Janet were there with this son and his family. Warren was the Fair Oaks Postmaster and a great ROTARIAN. Another surprise when Roger Niello, who joins me every Friday on KAHI Radio as we discuss the “State of the State”, appeared at the CC with his great family. It was a very nice day, and feeling the love for the Mom’s.
The NEWS week looks interesting with the uncovering of the IRS investigating groups that are critical of the Government; Arrest of a 13 year old boy for the murder of his younger sister; KINGS decision by the NBA; Counter moves by the Maloof Family in the Sale of the KINGS Franchise; and the politicians attacking the Immigration issue in DC. The immigration issue is politics at its best. Both parties are anxious to get 13 million new voters in the system, and the debate on whether that can be accomplished will be intense.
As for me, I am taking some time off later in the week as I participate with my ROTARY club the annual conference for our District. This is when some 45 Rotary Clubs in the area send representatives to the Convention in Reno for three days of learning, greeting, socializing, and celebration of the past year’s accomplishments. Our District covers clubs in Placer, Nevada, El Dorado, Yuba counties in California and several counties in Nevada. It is always a great time to rekindle old friendships as well as meet new people and join together people that dedicate their time and money to helping others.
Have a great day, and be kind to yourself!
