The Great Plotnik

Saturday, July 13, 2013


So, they're on their way home. At least they got to see Northern California put on its finest weather. What a whirlwind two weeks for Plot and Duck, with a memorable trip to Providence sandwiched in between.

The Greats PD, 5H, BBone and Desbondiga the Prosperous (DP) have a mountain awaiting them as soon as they return home, what with packing up and moving into a new apartment around the corner, not to mention work, camp and that good ol' East Coast mugginess. The Great BZWZ is hopefully sitting on her behind today, but she's got to pack up and move too, from the Northeast of the past twelve years down to the South. She's in for a few surprises, but luckily she's got JJ-aka-PP to help her get accustomed to Southern weather and rednecks.

Nobody can tell me Mummy Plotnik looks her age.

These are are all college friends of the Great PD. Plot and Duck know them all and they've known Nick (ie) since he was Isabella's age. Their expanding families got together in Watsonville over the Fourth of July at the home of one of their parents. They are no longer children, all now in their mid-to-late thirties, and all have one or two kids and several more are imminent. Their beards are turning gray-ish. This means they are basically exactly who Plot and Duck were when their kids were little.

Desbondiga the Prosperous. The Meatball with Handles. The kid who makes everybody laugh just by exposing his thighs.

Meanwhile, The Great FiveHead and B-Bone the Fearless got to spend a day on the Santa Cruz waterfront.

You've seen photos before of beautiful Stella and Isabella. Stella lives in Pacific Heights and just gets more stunning every year. It's a little spooky.

Dinner at Regalito -- the perfect choice as long as you go early before the crowd takes your ears away. That's probably the best guacamole and certainly the best homemade tostadas in the city.

So now it's back to work. I guess. Tomorrow, maybe.
