Last night I enjoyed an amazing evening dining on the top floor of the Transamerica Building. What an amazing view, and intimate dining space. One of the security staff told me that there were floors above it (48th), 10-15 stories of a narrow, spiral staircase, and only the engineers and mechanics were allowed access. Rats! Well, I wasn't dressed for it anyway. The Bank of America hosted the evening for clients/potential clients while the Mid-sized Pension conference is in town.

Saturday is my flying lesson! My friends have either changed dates, or cancelled, so I'm going alone on this adventure. It's going to be fun.

I've been making progress on planning Colin & Collette's individual 'weeks' with Auntie Anna. I've gotten reservations at Camp Curry in the tents for Colin and I, and fly fishing lessons set up. We may also go gold-panning if Mariposa isn't too far away from Yosemite. I'm arranging for a trip to Monterey for Collette, complete with a B&B experience in tents on a wildlife park, where an elephant will bring breakfast to us carrying it on his trunk... and we'll have an elephant ride as well. I've also looked into rock climbing lessons for Collette who seems to be able to scale anything verticle quite naturally. Hmmm... does she take after her auntie who never saw a tree she didn't want to climb to the top when she was Collette's age?
