We've been busy as usual,
fitting in some social time with friends.
On the 8th we went on a chocolate walk
with a couple we friended at the RV park.
It was a lot of fun, walking the blocks
of oldtown Salinas and picking up chocolates
at the shops.
This shop had 'toasted' marshmallows over dark chocolate.
He used candles, it was interesting.
Two weeks after my birthday is Adam's.
He turned 35!
Mom and I met he and Jen and Jen's parents,
Martha and Steve, in Carmel.
The food was delicious, and we got to try
a lot of things off the menu.
Jen works there so we got special treatment :-)
Saturday George and I took Cooper over to Monterey.
We had never taken him 'out in public' so to speak.
We walked out on Fisherman's wharf,
where Cooper loved all the smells and birds.
George lifted him up to see the sea lions.
We also found one of the dog friendly restaurants..
Cooper flirted with all the people sitting
next to us,
but finally calmed down while we
enjoyed a drink and an appetizer.
The server brought dog treats for him :-)
Earlier in the month I had another kidney stone, (my third!),
sending me to a visit to the ER.
They decided to admit me when the CT scan
showed it was a 5.5 and may require surgery.
Fortunately (?) they sent me home to pass it,
which it finally did the next evening.
Other than that, life is good!
