Yogi Berra Quotes


Yogi Berra
Yogi Berra played catcher for the New York Yankees

Yogi Berra, a baseball legend, died on Tuesday, September 23 at the age of 90 years old.  He was not only one of baseball’s greatest catchers, but was one of baseball’s most interesting characters and is credited with many Yogi-isms some of which he said and perhaps some he did not.  Here is a sampling of his famous sayings.

yogi berra - if you come to a fork . . .

it ain't over

No one goes there anymore, it’s too crowded.

If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

You should always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise, they won’t come to yours.


Another Successful WCR Fashion Show/Fundraiser in Pebble Beach

“Escape into the forest”

An amazing crowd gathered at the Inn at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach September 18th to enjoy a Fashion Show Fundraiser “Escape into the forest” sponsored by the Women’s Council of Realtors, Monterey Peninsula.   A participant’s ticket included a champagne reception, a  fantastic lunch, a wide array of silent and live auction items to choose from and an incredible fashion show.  The fundraiser benefited the Housing Resource Center and the WCR Education Fund.  WCR is known for putting on the best fashion show on the Monterey Peninsula and they did not disappoint anyone modeling clothes from Ms. Fabulous, Biba, The Boutique, Nest, Heart Beat Boutique, Carried Away, Coast Carmel, Ericka Engelman Couture, Men’s Wearhouse, and Patrick James.  The models are not professional models ~ they come from the real estate industry and are your favorite realtors, Title Company representatives, Lenders, etc.   But, for this one day, they are runway models on a catwalk!

I get asked, “What is it like being backstage at the fashion show getting ready?”  Well . . .  crazy, amazing, and fun!  Brian and his team from Oye Hair Salon in Monterey worked on our hair, Blush, a makeup studio in Monterey applied makeup and the models all prepared their clothes  by unzipping zippers and unbuttoning buttons to make those fast changes possible — that is when we weren’t posing for photos!

On a personal note I loved modeling Ericka Engelman Couture.  She is an incredible designer and creates very unique designs.  She does  a thriving bridal business, but is now venturing into a ready to wear line.  For a fascinating wardrobe, give Ericka a call.

To put on a successful event of this scale is a large undertaking.  We want to thank all of our wonderful sponsors, silent/live auction donors, our clothiers, our hair and makeup salons, our models, our dressers, our tuxedo clad greeters,  and our Fashion Show Committee led by the two co-chairs,  Sandra Schirmer and Carol Duncan.  It is a thrill to raise money for a good cause and at the same time provide a fantastic venue for many to enjoy!
