Hardly any of those 49ers made any money but California sure gained a big growth from the migrations there. And today they are leaving CA in hoardes. I am so glad I do not live any more in that state!! I really liked your Limerick, Kim

Thank you, Andrea! So sad California these days. How fond I was to venture out of the hotel on my own and take a cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf. Alas would be too scary now!
