Mona flew non-stop, using her superhero powers, all the way from San Francisco to the J-Town Regional Airport and hopped into the rental car provided for her to reach her destination here on The Avenue. Moxie Mona has been an awesome house guest, going so far as to accompany me to the Labor and Delivery Suites of the local hospital to assist in the birth of another grandson. Poor girl wasn't really up to it and she passed out inside my purse while I attended to the matters at hand. Therefore, unfortunately, there are no pictures to prove this, but trust me, Mona was there and she has sworn to me that there is no way she is ever going through that any time soon. I feel good about preventing at least one unplanned pregnancy. Mona is going to think long and hard when she does make that choice.
Now onto a tour of the city I call home.
