During holiday visits of his Reno family, redozdachs, the Renoites, and I would often met his Uncle Maurie and Aunt Phylis at the Spinnaker Restaurant in Sausalito for brunch. Good food, a great view of San Francisco across the Bay, and easy driving for both of us made the restaurant a perfect destination for a booster shot of family gossip and seasons greetings.
Aunt Phylis died five years ago, and Uncle Maurie died this past spring. Yesterday was their anniversary.
Geoff, his brother Ric from Reno, and I have just returned over the Golden Gate Bride after dining at Spinnaker and toasting the memories of their aunt and uncle. Kinda a nice Sunday outing.
