We were all back at our cars by 11 am, entirely unscathed.....the temperatures were just getting into the low 50's.....:-) Next up for me was to drive 30 miles back home, shower, change and then head back to San Dimas, CA to meet up with my long time childhood friend, Tom Carrozzo. We first became friends in 7th grade, and have remained friends over all these many years. Tom, among his many talents, is an ordained minister, and he will be officiating at my daughter's (Sharon) wedding on the 17th. Ironically, Tom's father, Al, married Elaine and I back in 1971.
We, along with Sharon and Rod, met up with Tom at Clayton Brewing Company (located in San Dimas in the Pomona Valley) at 1 pm, and spent the next two hours reminiscing and talking about Sharon's wedding. This was our second visit to CBC**.....we had lunch there with my sister, Jill, and her husband Elliott almost a year ago to the day. Yelp gives them a solid 4 stars on 210 reviews, and we would agree. Great selection of brews, and excellent food.....just as it should be.
We exchanged 'until next time' hugs, and were on our way home a little after 3 pm. I spent the remainder of the day watching NFL playoff football, and then read for a while before heading off to bed by 10:30.....a very tired, slightly sore guy with a big smile on his face.....another day lived well......
Thanks for stopping by!
