THE SECOND STORY | July 5th, 2019

Parade watching…

My friend, Kevin, said I missed two bridges in Alameda….over the lagoon on Grand Street and over the lagoon on Broadway! He wins! I cross them all the time!

The afternoon of July 3rd, Grand Street residents had put out chairs for our parade (and party) attendees, that lined the streets! And the party I went to on Park Street, did the same thing! They were chained to whatever! I wonder if we will see some action from our local city officials about that. Probably not…one of them lives on Grand Street.

Good news for me….while I verbally said I’d volunteer to work with the ‘barricade brigade,’ for July 4th, on July 2nd I heard what I had volunteered for: to meet at the Oak Street Police Dept at 6:45am (OMG) for a viewing of a video, and we’d be assigned a place to be until 2pm. Yikes! But I wasn’t signed up…it was verbal! YAY!

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!
