Ahhhh. Quick sketch today of La Jolla Shores and the Scripps Pier, just returned from a trip spent with family for Thanksgiving. Lots and lots of laughter, mixed in with a spattering of passionate debate around politics, religion and money. And we all know how much fun that is, especially when there are political polar opposites participating in the debate. What's that old saying about topics not fit for the dinner table? My family didn't get the memo. But all in good fun, no blood was drawn, dinner was fabulous, and feisty spades tournaments proceeded with gusto. The most wonderful part of the holiday was the new baby girl to ooh and aah over, to dote and coo over, and the stunningly bright and beautiful older sister (10 yr old), who is in her own right a budding artist and baseball player. And of course seeing my beautiful niece and her 'honey buns' (Husband)!
