The bike and Armageddon!

Regular readers may have been wondering if I had fallen in a ditch while wine tasting, or been captured by little green men while in California.  I’d been sharing the events and adventures of our Santa Rosa trip (and I have at least 2 more posts to go on it) when all hell broke loose here at home….

So that morning we headed for the airport… Continue reading “Santa Rosa Part1”
