Still Cruisin’ in Winters

Well, it is Cruise Night again tonight in downtown Winters.  The Buckhorn has there tri tip sandwiches for sale for $5. each, such a deal.  Cheaper than at the Davis Farmers Market which will be tomorrow night!  There are lots of cars and it is a beautiful evening.  The cars are lined up on both sides of the street and down the middle of the street.  Grab your partner and come on down and enjoy the fun.   I have my little 88 560 SL convertible out there as my hubby’s insistence.    Looking forward to seeing you.

Bike Riding Through Winters

I found this article in the Outboud section of the Sacramento Bee yesterday and wanted to share it.  I actually had a friend stop by the office today and she had rescued a biker out on Pleasants Valley Rd who was having problems with his bike.  She loaded him into her truck and drove him into town to VeloCity to get the problem fixed.  I asked the gentleman, Craig, if he had seen yesterday’s article and he said, yes, that was why he was in town.  The last I saw him he was headed down to the Putah Creek Cafe for lunch.  Little did he know  John Pickerel was the guest on Kitty O’Neal’s Restaurant Talk today on KFBK 1530 at 3:30pm.  It was fun to listen to John, great job, don’t think I will cook tonight!   http://www.sacbee.com/2010/07/15/2890118/great-rides-out-past-winters-plenty.html

Amgen Tour rolls through Winters today!





The Corner of Railroad and Main, Winters

Well the Amgen tour just rolled through town in day2 of the tour.  It is always so exciting to seem them roll/streak down Main Street.  I am so lucky so they go right my office.  This is always a fun event to watch.  There was a very slight sprinkle when them came through town but it is dry now.  Hope the weather holds as they ride by Lake Berryessa on Highway 128. 

Cruzin’ in Winters

Tonight Main Street will be closed off from 5-7:30pm for Cruz Night.  So, bring your vintage car down and join the fun or do like my hubby and I do and check out the old cars.  John sold his o32B Ford years ago and his sons will never forgive him.    I used to call it his BS car (before Sandy).  He finally paid someone to finish the rehab as he was never going to have time to get it finished in this lifetime.  It was fun for a few years.  We took it to Cruise Night in Woodland before that became a fiasco and he entered it some car shows.  Guess those boys need to think about buying their own and making their own memories.

Winters Youth Day 2010

Saturday, April 24, 2010 marks another Youth Day for the history book.  It really sounds like it is going to be fun and there is a lot of excitement in the air around town.  The Class of 1960 is celebrating their 50th Class Reunion this weekend and 51 of them are in town to celebrate.  They all have t-shirts on commemorating the event and they are marching in the parade, think they will take Sweepstakes?  Be sure to make plans and come and help us celebrate, you can go to the Asparagus Festival on Sunday.  Join in the fun and come see your friends or make new ones.  It should be great!

Blogging 102

Well, it looks like this is my 102 blog!  Never did I think I would make this day/blog.  I have to admit it has gone by so quickly and it wasn’t as hard as I though it would be.  I have actually enjoyed sharing what happens in Winters with you both real estate wise and just the fun things that happen in town.   So, I will remind you that this Saturday is Youth Day.  The fun begins with the Rotary Club Pancake Breakfast at the Community Center.  Then the Kiddie Parade kicks off the parade at 9:45am at the corner of 4th and Main.  Any kid can join in the fun, if you meet the age limits of course.  Then the Main Parade starts at 10am.  It is always a lot of fun and you never know who or what you are going to see.   After the parade the festivities continue at City Park with lots of things for everyone.  Be sure to come on down and enjoy the fun.   Looking forward to seeing you there.

March Madness in April, Marches on!

Well it is all over, well, at least the first half  is.  Duke beat Butler in what was an awesome game.  I was really hoping that Butlee would pull off the miracle and when by one in the last second of the game.   But, no miracle this year.  So tomorrow, we are on to the girls game.  West coast team, Standford vs east coast team, U Conn.  Should be another good game to watch.  Nothing much happening in the  real estate world so  we might as well watch the basketball game.  Have fun watching the game.

March Madness

This many meanings for some and only one for others!   I am sitting here watching the Xavier vs Kansas St. and it is a very close game.  What an exciting fame.  Personally I am waiting for the St. Mary’s game since many kids from Winters High School go there or are alumni, including my buddy Adam Mills, Class ’01.  2001 that is.  Don’t you just love upsets!?  I sure do.  I often root for the underdog and have loved these upsets.  Can you believe Kansas was out in the first round!?  Amazing.  Anything can happen.  The weekend is coming up so I know what many of you will be doing this weekend.

Olympians at Squaw Valley.

My daughter is a sophomore at Sierra Nevada College at Incline, NV.  She has been taking skiing this semester.  Yes, I am paying  for that class.  She tried snowboarding when she was younger but wasn’t impressed.  This is the first time she has tried skiing and has enjoyed it.   Anyway, she is not a fan of the Olympics and has not watched over the past two weeks.  I talked to her tonight and she said that her school is going to Squaw Valley to ski tomorrow as some Onlymic athlete has a tie to her school and she will be at Squaw tomorrow.  Oh, that would be Julie Mancuso!  She didn’t know so had to look it up, guess what?  Mom was right!  Have a great time, Devon, should be an awesome day in many ways.
