Good Samaritan comes to Winters.

I met a client at my office today who was so distraught when she arrived as she had been to Home Depot in Vacaville and had lost her purse.  She was just sure it was gone.  They had gone back to look for it but it was no where to be found.  As we were meeting a nice gentleman came in to the office wondering if I knew the lady who’s driver’s license he held.  I told him that I did and she was sitting in the back of the office.  She was so relieved!  He had found her purse in the shopping cart outside in the parking lot.  He had taken the time to drive to her house in Winters but when he found no one at home he decided to come to my office.  He had found my card in her wallet.  It was just Divine design that she was in my office when he arrived.  She wanted to give him some kind of reward but he wouldn’t hear of it so I asked him to please write his name and address for her so she could send him a note.  So folks, we all need to “play this one forward” as the saying goes.  I truly believe that when you do something nice for someone, it comes back to you ten fold.  Have a fantastic week and enjoy the fabulous weather.

Chamber Mixer

Realty World-Camelot Winters, Inc hosted the monthly Chamber Mixer tonight and it was another raving success.  We had lots of raffle prizes that people donated and we had lots of chili.  There were eight different kinds of chili so lots of different ones to try.  We had a prize for the hottest, the must unusual and the people’s favorite.  How you were able to make it.

The morning after

Yesterday, one of my very best friends got married.  We have been friends since the first grade and yes, we have graduated from high school.  I am so happy for her.  She was widowed three years ago very unexpectedly.  She met Larry two years ago.  He is a very nice man, a little ridged but nice.  I think they will be very happy together.  This s a picture of them dancing together last June at her daughter, Jaimie’s wedding.  A rare picture as Larry doesn’t like to dance and she just got one dance out of him.  I wish them a lifetime of happiness.

The wedding reception was held in my backyard so we have been very busy getting everything ready for the big event.  My husband is in the middle of walnut harvest and is very busy.  Plus, the north wind blow until 4:30pm so there were leaves all around.  We all had a good time helping them celebrate the special occasion. 

Look closely in the background of this picture and you will see the old railroad bridge in Winters.   That is where they got married, overlooking Putah Creek.
