Julia Lee invited a few Class 68 friends to see the echerry blossom at Kenwood, then stopped by her home for a chat. So seven of us (Shan Shan, Joan,Yvonne, Kathy, Joan, Shu-jen, Julia, and me) first met at the Mongamory Mall for a simple lunch (at the Food Court). We then car pooled to the Whole Food parking lot to leave the two cars. We walked unto the Kenwood community, where homes are in the millions dollars. The flowers were still in their early blossom, but quite pretty.
At Julia's home, we tasted the 16 grains and beans sweet soup she prepared for us. There were also gigantic strawberries from COSCO, nuts, baked flexseed chips, etc. We chated well into 7 PM. It was still light, and was time for us to part as originally planned. Yvonne and the ladies gave me a bunch of lovely balloons for my retirement. What a pleasant surprise! Bowtie enjoyed them too after I took them home.
