Which ever, I'm so happy for you, DD and Tyler
Oh, and please pass along our "Congrats" to SIL who made Capt!

Thank you, Kgirl. It was KIND of pre-planned, but plans changed up a bit after the "E" word hit. Will pass on more congrats to my SIL....he worked long and hard taking the test for Captain and it finally all came together. He only has 3 more years before he can retire, but this new position will up his retirement pension significantly.

It's time we take a little road trip and have lunch there again. It's such a beautiful drive from Ventura to Santa Barbara!

Loved all your pictures and comments, and this was just what you needed!!

Thanks Kay! I was kind of wondering about the 'Santa Claus Lane' thing, and hadn't looked it up yet. Interesting info there. Hope you and Steve manage to get another trip up there...it was nothing short of perfect.

Thanks, GG. It was an awesome getaway. Just what was needed - I didn't want to come home, though.

I have not seen one in person, yet.

Bentley has a new SUV, too, and Audi owns Bentley, too. So, it's also a very expensive Audi.

I am glad you got to go and have some fun. It is good "therapy" after a rough time.

I didn't know that Audi owns Lambos and Bentleys.....! I learn something new every day here. BTW, there were baby carseats in the back of that Lambo SUV....yes, I briefly looked at the inside, hoping I wouldn't set off car alarms. Hard to believe being young enough to afford one of those, and have very young children. Lots of Teslas in that area, too.

Thanks, it was definitely good therapy. Just didn't want to come home...

That's great news about your SonIL making Captain! A nice bump in salary and subsequent retirement pay is always a good thing.

When my SisIL and I were heading to my car after stopping for a bite to eat, we noticed a fancy "sports car" parked next to mine. Nosy me, I always check to see if it's a standard transmission. (Sports cars should come in standard transmissions only, IMO.) Just as I was peering in, the owner beeped his remote to unlock the doors...and give me heart failure! We all had a good laugh, and he agreed that sports cars should be sticks (his was).

Or...maybe Grandma and Grandpa had the kids and the car seats for the day? Otherwise, the parents might not really be able to afford it, but they might be in some mighty deep debt.

CG....that would get my heart going, too!

Yes, it could have been a grandma and grandpa Lambo SUV with the car seats for the grands, but I don't think that was the case.
