Wednesday November 8th ~

Memories, even bittersweet ones, are better than nothing.
 I believe that without memories there is no life, and
 that our memories should be of happy times...

Another go at memory lane.  This time one of our trips
 to California.  Rima was living there and we just had to go for a 
visit, plus it was my home also for a few years.  Many memories 
in California.  Most are good and some of course not so good.

Back in California in 2018 and we had a great time again. 
 The sunsets at Huntington Beach and Santa Monica Blvd did 
not disappoint one bit.  Sunsets never disappoint in my book.

On that same road trip we also visited Las Vegas.  Arvid has 
trade meetings there so we were frequent Vegas visitors. 
 Now I don't mind if I don't go back for a while.

It was a beautiful time and what made it even better was being able 
to see California through Rima's eyes.  She's a very good tour guide.

California will always hold a special place in my heart.
  Does not mean I would choose to live there.  When I
 lived there, it was a very different California.

Here at home it get dark very early now.  Not liking this daylight 
savings time switch, but the sunsets are stunning.  Sniff keeps 
basking in it's glow every evening.  He loves warm weather.

Life has taken Arvid and I through many a paths, just like everyone else. 
 Life is not always easy, but we have always been good together and that
 has seen us through many a rough patches. There was a time we owned our 
own real estate company.  We went to London together with Arvid's brother 
and girlfriend.  Rented a booth and did our thing.  Sure was a fun time.

A treasured memory is the lasting gift of time well spent.  
You can close your eyes to reality but not to memories...
