    I now have a picture of the Lexus that Jackie earned selling Nerium (way to go Jackie!!!). The Lexus is the reason we have the Jeep. Thank you everyone!

    Walked upto Balboa park (about 3 miles) then got the no#7 bus back, had tea in the Gaslamp Quarter at a bar called Barley Mash and watched some NFL and Baseball. A pint of Guiness was $9 so drinks were very ...
