Departing & Arrival (Page Two)
As usual, we hire "The Black Beauty" party bus from Platinum Limo in Seal Beach to transport thirty-three of us from Old Ranch Country Club to Claremont! We reduce the number of cars on the freeway plus we get the added benefit of having two glasses of wine at the play and getting an hour to get ready to drive home.
Did You Know? - The best present one can hope for this year is to spend time together.
Ron awaits the last passenger!
Old Ranch provided coffee and tea for the bus riders!

It was a great ride and no one got off and kissed the ground... A good indication!
