Advertising about A-town.

Surprise Birthday Party on my block! Huge balloons and a lot of noise!

I just returned from a late afternoon/evening in Napa. I was invited to dinner by my son’s in-laws. Ev and Erin and their 2 kids drove up from San Diego for the week. While the air quality was quite good in Alameda, it was just a  bit smokey in Napa…but still much better than it’s been there for a while. Not wanting to be a total free-loader, I asked what I could bring. They said I could bring some Tucker’s Ice Cream! So I did.

 I knew I needed to drive my car to Tuckers, otherwise, the ice cream would melt during my bike ride home.

Evan had a part-time job during one of his high-school summer vacations at Tucker’s. And we (including Carl) go waaaay back with the former owners. Needless to say…we were regulars.

A bit of truthfulness- this is the first time during the lockdown I’ve ordered out for anything. And this was the first time that I’ve driven my car off the island since SIP.  But I did drive my car to the Southshore Car Wash a few weeks ago. Now it’s gross again.

Here’s a link to Tucker’s history and what they offer!

Their logos says…”Eat Dessert First!’   http://tuckersicecream.com/ice-cream

All Alameda all of the time!

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! www.MarilynSchumacher.com to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
