Joe's Crab Shack

♪♫ “Joes crab shack is a little old place where we can get together, crab shack baby…♫♪ The good old B-52’s. I liked that song. Well Joe’s Crab is where us Northern Cal Gal’s got together for another time of food, fun, and fellowship. It was located in Old Sacramento.
Nor cal Sister lock Gathering, August 2007
It was my intention to take a picture of my meal, but by the time I was served, I was sooooo hungry hat I devoured half my meal before remembering to take a picture. Sorry! But I did get a picture of my half eaten plate. The “shrimp trio” was quite tasty. It was pretty much the same group who met at the last gathering, but however there was a new face, Miriam, my co worker and friend. She was the sister lock baby in the group, having her for nearly 3 months. I’d like to think I had hand in helping her come to her decision to get sister locks for she really liked mine. Perhaps, perhaps not, I’m just glad that she did. looks great!
Alright, I digressed a little. It was so much fun seeing everyone again, and to see how each others locks had developed over the months. I was very impressed with Chocolata’s curls.
She said she used “wrap-a-lock” curlers to get her style. Belinda’s locks had really grown, and Gigirl had been cutting off her permed ends. My sister, Lexxus Prefect, well what can I say?, her locks are always looking good, but I did notice that her new growth is double the size of her initial locks. Oh, by the way, Lexxus Prefect has finally gotten her blog up and going, so give her a welcome. Just click on the link on the left hand side of my blog.

Ok, ok back to the gathering. To sum it up, it was a success. For me, just connecting and sharing our lives, our hair stories, and whatever else means a lot to me. I am a people person. I’m told our next gathering will be in December, cant wait!

Home again and back.

Hello All. I've recentally returned from the Central Coast where my parents reside. My kids and I took a 7 hour car ride to visit them two weeks ago. Helga and my oldest sister drove along too. I always like going home (my parents home) because I get a little spoiled. My father greeted us while doing what he does best- BBQ'n. He makes the best BBQ ribs. My mother is always good for having her homemade chocolate chip cookies ready for my son Justin. Not only that, two of my younger nieces were already there and were so happy to have a few more aunts and cousins to socialize with.

This visit home was great. The sad part is that I was so busy, I barely took pictures. Here are a few that turned out pretty good. (Pismo Beach)

Helga and I spent time in each other's locks. Too fun! She even taught me some new styling options. I'm now 7 months locked, and happy to say that my locks are getting stronger. I love my sister locks.
