Happy Whatever You're Doing!

The lovely home of Lisa Bourey was the scene of a "Happy Whatever You're Doing" Party for Ned and Pam Overend, who are kinda sorta temporarily relocating to Santa Cruz. The facts are few, but rumor has it that Ned will be commuting (one-hour each way) to work at Specialized in Morgan Hill for something south of 5 days per week. Pam, we're betting she'll be waxing her surfboard and heading to Half Moon Bay. And their son Rhyler is reported to be enrolling at Cabrillo Community College. However, they're keeping their house in Durango with their car parked in the garage, so who the heck knows? Anyway, the company was convivial and food was great (with special culinary thanks to Lisa Bourey, Wade Moore and Rob Kabeary, owner of Durango's artisan bakery, bread).

Ned sits next to Ricky Worrell and treats the party to yet another ribald "racing" story.

As usual, Pam is the best behaved Overend.

(L-to-R) Local legends Brett Hahn, Ed Zink, Chris Wherry, Patty Zink, Machelle Richburg, Pam Moore and Bill Richburg get cozy and friendly.

Drew and Rob show off each others stylish eyewear.

Late in the evening, Ned puts his glasses on and gets serious with a LEGO toy.

At long last... success!
