But only for the day. Linda and her sister Donna picked up Chase and took him to the San Diego Zoo. I had a luncheon appointment with my second cousin, Judy, to deliver the hands.
You’re probably thinking “what hands”. The Bauman family has a tradition that dates back to 1883 of wax hands on the wedding cake for members of the family.
Judy’s daughter is getting married in May in Rhode Island and she wanted the hands for the celebration. So the tradition continues! Is that neat or what. We had a nice lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, and we had a pleasant hour catching up with family news. When I was growing up I was lucky to be close to a lot of my cousins, and the families would get together for any holiday.
Meanwhile, the sisters were having a great time with Chase at the Zoo.
So we’re having a good time here in SoCal while we wait for a surgery date.
