It all started quietly with the only thing on my social calendar being that terriffic Mexican Dinner Friday night put on as a benefit for the Youth Hot Line sponsored by the Episcopal Church. Now those ladies really know how to cook! They repeatedly served 130 folks with advance ticket sales and they regret having to turn folks away. I just wish they would have more of the splendid menu...say once a month, maybe. THEN SHE WROTE... But what started out to be a quiet weekend turned out to be one of the most exciting of my lifetime. Saturday, I flew to Monterey for lunch, and Sunday found me in a reception line with the Consul General of China ! Not too shabby, ell? COFFEE, TEA OR ME? My adventure began with a phone call from Bob and Carol Wright (you know, Wright's Office Supplies, between the Grapevine and Pellegrini's). "We want to go flying this weekend," said Carol, simply as if con- templating a walk across the street. "How would you like to go to Monterey for lunch?" Well, you didn't have to ask Chamber Chatter twice! The Monterey Peninsula is my old stomping ground having lived in Carmel and the valley some fifteen years. And, also it just happens that myson, the college student, lives there. So, on an absolutely perfect-day-for-flying, we had a quick continental breakfast at my penthouse and drove out to the Cioverdale Airport. I had called some friends and my son ahead of time to meet us at the Monterey Airport for lunch. They did. While we kidded around a lot getting excited and giddy about the trip, once in the plane, Carol takes her flying seriously and the science of a pilot is a bit awesome. BOb was the aviator and I was sort of a back seat assistant and my job was Io watch for other airplanes. Carol talked into a funny little mouth piece using a foreign language which included a lot of numbers. She was not the least bit shy about talking to towers and finally I was able to decipher that our airplane's name was Cessna 23 Echo. I also learned that a woman pilot gets a LOT of attention when she asks for any assistance .... Going down we flew under the jet traffic and San Francisco sparkled like a lap;full of jewelry. On this clear day, you could truly see forever. Hundreds of sailboats dotted the bay, and I could almost touch the Golden Gate. Our flight plan look us Io Half Moon Bay and then south down the Santa Cruz coast. Little towns stretched out in the mornin sunshine like delicate mosaic art, and little farms joined together like a comfortable palchwork quilt. After a super "Carol Wright" landing, I learned new words like "Tie Down" and "wind flaps" and tried to stay out of the way. We hiked to the restaurant and enjoyed a short reunion but a very long lunch over-looking the landing field. The flight back was equally scenic, but we had been advised to go over the jet traffic in the city because it was bumpy down below. We climbed to over 8,000 feet, and this was the only chapter where I got a little nervous. Our pilot didn t help matters any when she continued to look for landing places which were not necessarily airports! As I always say, rm not afraid of flying...I'm afraid of crashing... However, I shouldn't have had to worry as there was not a ruffle of a problem as we sored high above the Golden Gate and sparkling bay full of sea craft. Soon we tipped our hats to sleepy little Geyserville and watched the sun set on the Warm Springs Dam and put down in good old Cloverdale. A grand and wonderful day. It beats a vitamin pill! SUPER SUNDAY: As if that wasnq enough excitement for one weekend, I had a call Sunday morning from the editor of this newspaper. "How would you like to go down to Santa I I lllll I II Bob Beck with one of the fire trucks he built. Photo by Janice. Rosa and meet the Consul General, of China?" said Janice. Well, what the heck, it's something to do. So off we went to the $25 per head finger food event put on by Bob Trowbridge in honor of the exchange students from China who are attending Sonoma State. Janice is a very remarkable photographer and person and somehow arranged press passes for the two of us, thus saving $25, which in itself was a pleasanl experience. So we hobnobbed with the elite set, renewing acquaintances with Senators and Assemblymen and other VIPs. In a way Iha[ only Janice Corey could do it, she somehow /nanaged a picture taking session with Chamber Chatter welcoming Ihe four visiting dignitaries to Sonoma County.. Surrounded by these darling gentlemen, I was on cloudnine and we were posing happily when Supervisor Helen ud approached and asked me to please step back out of the picture! I reacted in shock the way I always do. I laughed and moved over to visit an old friend who works for the Press Democrat. Suddenly, over the crowd I heard Janice calling my name. Janice is not the least bit shy when it comes to getting a story. She had rearranged the gentlemen visiting from China and asked me quickly to stand with them for a photograph. They were a jolly group and agreed to have me in the picture in spite of Mrs. Rude. The nexl thing I knew I was having a delightful con- versaiion withLucyand Barry Keene whom I hadn't seen in a long time. Lucy and I were talking about our kids when from out of nowhere, Supervisor HelenRudee came up and whisked them away. I don't think that lady likes me! However,in spite of the hostess, it was a most interesting day, and the most interesting part was meeting with the students who speak English better than Janice and I put together... HANG IN THERE: I'm not through yet .... As if this wasn't enough excitement, Monday morning 1 had a call from a friend who had traveled with the Lions Club to Reno this weekend, and guess what? (You are ahead of me, aren't you...) She had turned the five dollar bill I had senl her with her into 20! Now, there are not many gam- blers around who would be that honest, right ! Gosh, I wonder what's going to happen tomorrow. Incidently, one of the Lions had even more excitement than I did this weekend. He won $9,000 at Keno! I'II nevzr tell ....
