Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 363: The Boxing Donkey

We had a baby shower this afternoon for my colleague, G, who will become a new grandma in May. It's hard to think of her as having grand-babies, since she's only in her late 40s, but she had kids rather young during her first marriage. My supervisor is about the same age and had her boys later in life, so she's currently the mom of two sons in elementary school. Quite an interesting generational contrast!

A group of us met up at The Boxing Donkey in Roseville:

Apparently, G and her spouse R are regulars at this pub. Our group hung out on the back patio for some munchies, gifts, and a few rounds of cornhole. The weather was great for an outside gathering, but the nearby train tracks and loud freight trains were a wee bit distracting from time to time!
