The 2001-2002 Pali Annual "Post" Christmas Card

2001 was a real Space Odessy for the Palis. Where to begin??? Wow, besides going by fast it was full of big changes. First and foremost: the addition of little Reed Patrick Gaynor. He was born in Feb. and he is a real sweetheart. Pat and Ali did manage another quickie to the islands in May then returned to Tahoe to begin work on the new condo. It was a family project. Pat was real happy the summer came to an end so he could go back to work and rest. Construction stuff is hard. There was some Tahoe fun stuff: Mt. Tallac, Angora Lakes, and Flume trail (see photos on website). Jeff & Shellie Pohl, along with son Zack, moved back to Calif (Montclair). Jeff is working for Nordstroms & Shellie is with Wells Fargo Bank. Zack's in 5th grade. Nechia & the Miller's (Dan, Heather, Justin, and Carlyn) just slowing and quietly keep moving along. Would you believe the Palis have a teenager grandaughter (Heather 13). Dan's work is going well & Nechia loves teaching. Tammy continues to work for Kraft Foods & "fiance" Pat (the other Pat) has started his own financial investment company called "PTR Investments" (Which stand for???) Ali's family is doing well also. Sisters get together every once in a while to compare notes and bug mom and dad. Ali's niece Sara just passed the bar so we have a lawyer in the family now. Pat's mom is still kicking & is staying with us for awhile. Ali decided to go back to work after 2 successful years of retirement. Not that she wasn't good at retirement (she skiied more days than Pat did last year & played lots of tennis) but she wanted to make sure the Palis qualified for a new loan. That's right, a new loan for a new house. OK, it's not new, but it is in the Dublin hills real close to Tammy & Nechia. It's got a view & Ali is real happy. Lots of work for Pat to do & he's really happy about that. Not! New address is 11963 West Vomac Road, Dublin, Ca. 94568. New phone # is 925-828-8995. Tahoe's # is 530-544-8798. New email is: thepalis@attbi.com Webpage is http://home.attbi.com/~thepalis/paliwebpage/index.html Check out the webpage with lots of photos of the past 2001 events, like the Turkey Bowl at Thanksgiving, where Jeff Pohl regained the bragging rights after a long hiatus. However he whimped out of the Dec. trip to Florida, so big sister Tammy had to pick up the slack. Little Reed came along and bit Mickey Mouse's nose. Had a great time at the Mini Xmas reunion with the Hawaii group in SF. Had another great trip with the boys of Tahoe. Hopefully 2002, will be another good year. Pat & Ali won't be retiring anytime soon because of huge mortgages, so plan to stop by & play with them in Dublin or in Tahoe. Have a Great New Year .... Love the Palis ......
