Our friend from San Francisco was visiting Clearlake and renting a hotel room with air conditioning during the heat wave, so with him and the other couple who were in the general area, we had six dogs and five bears for a slumber party in the cooled home of our friend Bob, who graciously lets us stay in his vacation home in Clearlake whenever we can make it up there.
Our friend Gary has an amazing garden and a golden heart, having a canned food drive regularly for those in need. We were very happy to be able to participate and enjoy the extraordinary surroundings.
For several years now they have had a pride in Castro Valley, the unincorporated town I used to live in for several years and where my daughter finished high school. The pride event is in her high school parking lot, in fact. We took some pictures of and with friends and for the AIDS quilt and Orlando Pulse night club shooting memorials.
