Dan and I got up and over to San Leandro to meet my friends for a bike ride. So good to see Tony, Wayne (who couldn't ride today), Tom, and Phil. Greg and Debbie joined us too!
Tom got a flat...
in front on the Raiders HQ:
While we were at the coffee break, I hear a voice, "Is that Nikki?" I turned around to see who was asking. Didn't recognize the person at first but the voice was familiar. Finally realized it was my last 'boss' at my last job. He had lost weight and has aged a bit. Got a hug from him (which was interesting since he was the one who 'walked me out' on my last day of work after I was laid off.) We spoke a bit about who (of the Allied employees) was still working at Aon. There are only about six left. Fred mentioned there are still issues between the employees at the two companies even though the merger took place over two and a half years ago. Got another hug before he left.
Also, Enid met us at the coffee stop! So good to see her too. Last time we saw each other was when she came to our place for a visit as she and Sid were on their way to Mono Lake.
After the ride, Jess met me and we went to lunch together. Then she gave me a ride to Livermore. It was Very Nice to get some alone time with her!!!
This afternoon/evening is the Grimes family party at Brandon & Julia's place. What a crowd! What a noisy crowd! Some folks have left, others are starting to leave. It should be calmer soon.
