Above this morning’s sunrise was a crescent moon equally spectacular!! Sorry for all the exclamation points. I’m sorry for all my shortcomings. A little too “loose” after last nights Chamber event. As a matter of fact, this is yesterday’s sunrise anyway. I sound a little pious because earlier while filling up CORMKTG, (that’s one of the cars) at Costco all the car owners were standing around watching the fuel dispensers barely crawling and complaining, but laughing at all my usual antics as I normally set the dispenser gun and then interact with anything close. As the guy on duty comes over to my car’s machine bantering about how he could do nothing about it, but would call someone, I notice, because of my “looseness” I had set the gun on unleaded and CORMKTG takes premium. We mostly drive 10SNADO which is a little Prius and takes unleaded in my defense. I quickly close out and start filling up with premium getting ready to go back to the slow crawling, but it starts dispensing at the normal rate. As I am freaking about my divine intervention, I look around and the others are all back up to speed as well. We all looked at each other with amazement, knowing, because of my vocalism about being appreciative and that the powers that be correcting my blunder, immediately tagged me as being very worthy, as well as pretty entertaining. They all left and went right away to their nearest houses of worship and I, of course, came to work. Sorry Pastor Dave.
Back to the Chamber party. Good to see a lot of friends, old and new. Special shout out to Luca and Il Fornaio for the surroundings and hospitality. It was fun kibitzing with Shirley Nakawakatase from Imperial Beach and Coronado city manager Blair King about the glory days of IB when KPC was doing the IB Book, Blair was doing the city manager role, and Shirley was doing almost everything else. Always good to see the father/daughter team of Dave and Margaret Herring in attendance with their significant others. Never thought talking about rocks with Coronado First Bank manager, Renee Hinton could be as thrilling as it was. For that matter, watching the bevy of groups from the Eagle, Coronado Beauty Salon, Coronado Hospital Foundation, Coronado Republican Women, Discover Wellness and a host of others all enjoying themselves for our amusement. Even Dan McGeorge from the island’s new gallery, an old DINFOS trained killer like myself, was seen “having at” the festivities. I think I have corrected the looseness so I quit. LOL
No, I have to tell you about a few others so you get the drift… Phil and Pam Hammett, Doreen Tafelski, Yvonne Barnum, Mary Jo Morgan, Mary Ann Berta, Denise Scwab, all were laughing like crazy at Ruth Ann Fisher on the microphone…drifting yet?… Root 75 owner Kristy Pierre…how about now?
