Each time I drive this stretch between Tucson and Orange County, I notice this hill -- it looks very much like Chinaman's Hat, an island off Ku'aloa Ranch, O'ahu. But the shape is the only resemblance! Where's the aqua-colored seawater, palm trees, and gorgeous ridged Pali Mountains?
Richard always makes homecoming special! He'd opened the garage door and was waiting for me there with the big bear hug I'd been looking forward to, plus my before-dinner glass of wine! On the antique pine table were fresh (they're getting droopy in this picture taken a week later) pink roses, and the traditional Coke! Thank you so much, Richard, for making me feel treasured.
