A Dozen Red Roses & A PGR Event

On Tuesdays Gerry works at Carmichael Cycles. Evidently it was very slow so he left at noon and came home. He surprised me with this lovely bouquet of red roses, my favorite flower. I had forgotten and was reminded when I read posts that he had put on Facebook of a special day for us.
On Sunday, August 10, 1980, a lady at Arden Nazarene Church introduced me to Gerry. So today was that 30 year anniversary. We had a very short courtship...we were engaged on September 1st and married on November 1st.

The roses are beautiful...the camera made them look orangey.

Two organizations, Honor The Fallen Foundation and Never Forget Our Fallen with help from the Davis Rotary Club had a PGR Appreciation BBQ "to recognize the outstanding service and dedication of the Patriot Guard Riders for their support of military families of fallen heroes." It was quite an event. Also invited were Gold Star Mothers, Blue Star Mothers and others. The PGR came from all over. The lineup of motorcycles was awesome and it was looking at a sea of leather. Here are just a few pictures that I took:
Gerry is in this group.
There was a Marine Corp Honor Guard there.
Gerry is the 4th one from the right.

They had tri-tip sandwiches, tossed green salad and beans for lunch. The lunch was free to the PGR...there was a small fee for everyone else there. The event was held in the parking lot between a winery and flower shop just off of the I-80 freeway.


  1. Wait wait wait . . . you met on August 10 and got married on November 1? HOLY MOLY, he must've really swept you off your feet! What a suave guy that Gerry!

  2. Hahahaha!!! He didn't waste any time, that's for sure.
