THE SECOND STORY | August 29th, 2019

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.


This will be brief!  I rode my bike to a meeting this evening at the main city library, that was about our city rent control ordinance and the changes that the city council will be making, and confirming, next week.  I obviously rode my bike back…letting the wind hit my face, hoping I’d wake up from this dream/nightmare.

It’s exhausting…so many legit questions!

I’m certainly confused (and admit it).  More questions than answers.

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!
