San Diego, California

February 2005



Sunshine brightened our first few days in San Diego.  Bert & Darrell, Navy friends from a 60's tour on Okinawa and later on Guam, brought their RV to Admiral Baker Field to spend the weekend with us.  Their son Dan was the San Diego policeman shot in the line of duty and paralyzed in November, 2003.  As you can imagine, it has been a traumatic time for the whole family.  Lots of prayer chains have included him and are much appreciated.  Dan looks great.  We had not seen his sister Tricia since she was a young girl, so it was a treat to meet her husband and son Kevin.  Her daughter was busy elsewhere so we didn't get to meet her this time.  Bert also had us out to their home in Oceanside where she whipped up a wonderful meal (she's always been a great cook) and we got to meet her friend Judy, her sister Joyce and her mother.

Bob & Mike, Navy friends from before Terry's time, came to visit us at our spot.  Niece Charlene, always on the go, brought Jim and Betty (her Mom) to meet us for lunch one day.  Chris and Cheri, Navy friends from our first Corpus Christi tour, also took time out from their busy schedule to go out to dinner with us.  And last, but not least, we found time to play a little golf at Admiral Baker Field.
