The business of the convention went smoothly enough, but the focus was the upcoming Presidential campaigns.
The "Bad:" Some of our good people were ill, like Lori Geittmann and Shirlee Browne and Marcia and Mark Haskin, and they missed some of the convention. Also, Edna fell and broke her collar bone and she missed the entire convention.
This is my critique and only mine, regarding the SD Convention Hall. It was too dark inside; I missed many friends that I could not see inside. I have been to so many conventions and this hall is not the best. Lots of the fun of going to a Democratic convention is you get to see all of the people you have known down through the years. Ah well! Stop complaining, Teresa!
Now the "Beautiful:" Bobbi Buescher put on a magnificent dinner on Saturday night for the 53rd. The Breakfast with Jenny was also a great event. Thank you Bobbi and Jenny. We had so much fun with all the delegates, especially those from our own district. What a great bunch. I believe we have the best bunch of Dems in the entire state of California.
On a personal note, I want to say a few words about Bobbi's brother Chris. What a guy! He was so helpful to Diane, Bobbi and me when we had to help Edna in her time of need. There are a lot of funny stories we experienced and I'm sure we will share them with all of you. Many, many thanks to you for all you have done as the "best damn Dems in California."
As ever, Teresa
