We’re heading into the last month of summer here in the Sonoma area. Sonoma is a fair mix of conservative and liberal people. We all seem to get along pretty well. At least, I don’t see crimes of passion related to Trump in the police blotter. Maybe it’s because we have the last and most northern California mission right in the downtown part of Sonoma? Probably not but it looked good on paper.

August 7, 1976, my wife and I were married in the mission. That was 41 years ago to the day on the 7th. At that time I was renting a two bedroom house in the little blip on the road named Agua Caliente. Sonoma was much smaller and more rural then. the crush of outsiders came during the 70’s and 80’s and most were from the east coast. Those were most of the liberals who moved in. The local government has changed quite a bit as it seems all the liberals ran for local then county office. They brought their nonsense with them but there were enough of us native Californians around to slow them down quite a bit. Still, we get along.

I suppose that this post is more about marking time than saying anything ground breaking. If you’re ever in town drop by and say Hi.
