Goin' back to Cali

I'm in the process of packing. Yes, I know, I should have done it yesterday, but come on, how much does a girl really need for a three-day trip? I'm not going to Patagonia, just to the East Bay Area.

The Contra Costa Times finally got around to printing a more complete obituary for Aunt Nell. Plus, that's one cute picture! She would be pleased, I think.

Aunt Nell was a smoker for many years and had a tough time quitting, even when she started having trouble breathing. And it suddenly occurred to me the other day why she'd made a request to be cremated: maybe she just couldn't pass up the chance to have one last guilt-free smoke.

I'm probably going to hell for that one. But if she were here, I know she'd laugh.
