This is a picture along Hwy 46 near Paso Robles of a clump of trees in the shape of a heart. Great-Grandma Joaquina loved this heart-shaped grove. She also looked like the little old lady in the Burger King commercials in the '80s - the one who said, 'Where's the beef.' She would say that in the back of the car when we'd drive along Hwy 46. Auntie and Aunt Xie would die laughing. She would also speak Portuguese to Grandma, and we had no clue what she was saying, but could tell if she was talking about us by the change in the tone of her voice. We loved her and miss her a lot. She would also say, 'Quoi ta thine,' when translated means, 'Poor little thing,' or something like that.
