Happy Holidays to my California family

A hard fact of our family life is that a huge chunk of our
family lives in California.  We have visited, but with COVID 
not for years, and we have 9 family members there. 
I remember the first time I visited California -- it was for a
course by Skip Lawrence and Toph Shink.  It was 

We left Toronto in weather so cold they had to de-ice the plane,
and arrived to see lemon trees thick with lemons outside our hotel 
room. Everyone complained of the cold, which we snow bound
Canadians thought was very funny. It was so wonderful. We'd love
to go again, and love to see our family there.

Have a loving your family day.
