The good news is after the awful I-605 traffic, there is the priceless reward of seeing our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter!
J.J. and I stopped for a quick Greek lunch before arriving at our family's home in La Jolla.
All is wonderful and peaceful. Our granddaughter spent hours telling me about her 5th grade classes, teachers and forthcoming school activities, including a week-long camping trip.
She also invited me out to the neighborhood park to play badminton. This is another activity which I have not engaged in since our sons were about our granddaughter's age.
Not sure how much of it is skill and how much is a luck in making the racquet come in contact with the shuttlecock. After about an hour, both of us needed a good shower and dinner.
A special treat for dessert was enormous and juicy Cheon-An Pears imported from Korea which our daughter-in-law purchased from a Korean market.
