So since moving to SoCal a little over a year ago we have hosted and entertained more people than all the years living back east.

First my buddy and his boys came and visited. Then Renee's friends came for a visit. Then My Mother-in-Law came. then my daughter came. Then my friends son came for a visit.


So This Thursday my Mother-in-Law is coming for 2 weeks and then my father is coming for 10 days during Thanksgiving.

A 4-person Vespa? That is very cool!

Wonder if its road worthy though.

Aside from stability and balance issues, just sighting it in traffic could confuse drivers who havenīt seen one before.

I saw a scooter trike in Indiana a few weeks back. Scooter. Trike. Get one of those with a back seat that seats two across.

We already have for my mother-in-law ;)
Sadly, my father has a limited palette so we will be placing the subscription on hold for him.

Don't think over it as a limited palette, think of it as experience in what he prefers, and bow to that expertise..... Enjoy your time with your father, I
Would give anything to have a few more moments mine.

Typically our family visits here in California early in February, or roughly what we used to call "suicide season" in Maine.

They have matured a bit and now they can be found in Majorca or Catalonia during that season... And I am wanting to vist them.

I know it sounds geeky, but a small room in the basement (cement floor) with a dozen fish tanks and a comfortable chair and light and a spare TV if you have one can make the last weeks of winter a much more pleasant time. I watch mind eat, breed, spar,... If you grow aquatic plants you'll have sunlight bulbs in the room and that's good as well.

A well-chosen woodworking project in the next room also helps.

Joe, you make your life so public: Those of us with memories will remember you like your mother in law and she's attractive.

You and your dad are two peas in a pod, so there'll be good times with a side order of bullheadedness.

I grew up in New England, with equal time in Maine, NH, and Mass., here there is no winter.

My standard explanation for friends from home is "The very worst day of summer in Maine is just about the same as the very worst day of winter here"
If I want to watch fish in the dead of winter I will put on my sunglasses, walk down to the beach, spread out a towel and watch the Dolphins... :D
