THE SECOND STORY | June 27th, 2019

Happy 4th of July….

…and if you’re in town maybe I’ll see you at the parade. I’ve volunteered (thanks to the Bay East Association of Realtors) to move barriers around, in a specific location, so the parade participants and observers can get in and out.  And no, I’ve never participated in this way!

First time I’ve seen a bull being ridden in the parade!

OK…answers to last week’s questions!

How many bridges does Alameda have?

6, by my count: High St, Fruitvale, Park St, Bay Farm Island bike bridge, Bay Farm Island car bridge, and Ballena Bay.

What’s the speed limit? Seems like it’s 40 mph…but it’s 25 mpg…but few people follow the law. I could tell the cops where they could sit and watch their speed machines…and make a lot of $$$.

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
