My Aunt Vonda was always ready to say yes to any invitation.
A trip, a movie, the grocery store. Always ready to go.
I try to remember & embrace that philosophy.








So ... so grateful to be invited to help celebrate a special guy ...





I drove the 241 to the busy 91 freeway & on to Rodrigo's ...





89 degrees outside, A/C, family & friends inside.




Delicious food, decorations, centerpieces, a Q&A game!

Doug's Mom, Jean is a master party planner!
Guests signed a matted frame for Doug.




Each guest received a beautiful almost edible ...
candy-filled favor, another "Jean" talent!
