My Gang

My Gang.....My San Francisco Bay Area Gang.....Plus One

From Left, Aurora, 8; David, getting older;

I grabbed this image about 5 weeks ago when we were visiting our Son, David, and his family in Vallejo, CA,,,,

Not long after we arrived, ..we went to the San Francisco Humane society where Lyndsy adopted a dog for the family....The dog's name is Piper...she is under the bench. A VERY sweet dog, she had seen enough hard times and had given birth to at least one litter of pups, probably two!....very sad.

From left in the image, we have Aurora, 8, David getting older ;-); Piper, 3 under the bench) "Grandma Barbara Still so damn beautiful.!! ;-) Cecilia-5, Lyndsy still beautiful and a LOT YOUNGER than David LOL :-)

I hope you enjoy our Bay Area Family ;-)

Wonderful family portrait. Congrats to them on the adoption of Piper. I'm sure his luck has changed and now he will have a happy life with them.
