Malcolm and I spent part of the day with some great friends , Jack and Mary in Chico. Mary went to school with Malcolm in Sonoma and we got reconnected last year and have had some wonderful times together. They have three great dogs(Lily, Owen and Riley) who get excited when we visit. Malcolm plays with them and gets them stirred up just like our grandkids and they love it. Mary cooked a terrific meal of splt pea soup, deviled eggs, salad and baked apples with caramel ice cream - yummy. Mary is a home economics major and Jack is a specialist in birds and lectures and travels. We really enjoy their company so much and have a lot in common.
