Helen is busy stroking piles of shop-hop fabric so it falls to me to inform her readers that we are now back in San Fransisco following a tour of Northern California taking in Berkeley, Healdsburg, Sacramento, Auburn, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Lake Tahoe, Salinas and Monterey. The US is interesting in that it appears that around each quilt shop they have built a city for husbands to visit.
Having ordered a Hertz Never Lost GPS marriage saving device Helen was never geographically lost. However in the last 10 days she has lost the following items:
Bag of apples
Camera ( left in Berkeley Marina)
Camera ( left in Hertz hire car)
Handbag(left in In and Out Burger Morgan Hill)
Passport ( albeit only for a panicky five minutes when she failed to reach deep enough into the safe pocket of her bag where it was all along)
Camera spare battery
Can mango juice
Box of fabric worth some $200 (that's what she is admitting to anyway)
All have been recovered save for the the mango juice and the pedometer which fell off in the ladies' restroom and I draw the line at searching in there. The Hertz people returned the camera but the memory card has been removed. This is a mystery even Helen has not yet solved. So far she has failed to lose me but should my name not appear in any of her posts please email her and remind her to check for my whereabouts.
