For you folks living the good life in places other than California, I want you to know that I paid $4.88 a gallon for gas this morning. Share my pain...

We Got Married

It was a great day!

Just a great day all around!

John and Robin escorted us in, and Cheryl and Dana were our witnesses, and Sachi was there with us, and it was lovely.

I'll do a longer post later, but it was a wonderful day!

There are lovely photos all over the place, such as here:

Perfect Day

1. Go to the gym to work out, spend 30 minutes on the eliptical machine
2. Get Gail and the pups and go to Kelly's for breakfast.
3. Go to the Farmers Market.
4. Go to the store where I got Gail's diamond ring in November and find out we can order one just like it for me.And maybe still on sale and maybe in time for the wedding.
5. Sit outside a coffeeshop in downtown Santa Cruz drinking ice tea, watching people go by, and reading The Yiddish Policemen's Union, listening to Gail laugh out loud while she reads her book.
6. Be very grateful..

Good Week

Things are going very well. Gail is feeling good and is getting out and about a little. We go back to UCSF next Tuesday, and we think everything will be fine. She is on a new anti-rejection drug, Rapamune, and so she is quite immune-suppressed. But she is doing great!

I am getting a little traction at work, and that is good.

We went to Gay Pride last Sunday, and had a good time there as well. First Congregational Church marched in the parade and had a service at the park, and a good time was held by all.

Then I went to the church for the Children's Choir concert, and they were wonderful and charming.

It's been a good week.
