Thanks again to everyone for the kind words!

My daughter and I have been in constant contact since Monday, exchanging photos and stories, etc. 24 years is a long time, and we have a lot of catching up to do. She officially lives in Folsom, near what used to be a massive lake (now it's more of a pond). On the bright side, it's not too far from Tahoe and the casinos!

Once again, it's such a trip how she found me, through those photos of Staples and the LA Arena Co I posted here. Life is such an unexpected journey. It's like John Lennon said:

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”

Indeed.
