While driving home from an excellent day where we were treated to +Chris Morrison 's food, I started to come up with a little timeline for Mercer. It is a long drive from LA to Pismo Beach, and at first I came up with the reason he came to LA. I came up with Nora Wells in which you can read Mercer's story in listed in the previous post. I came up with it on the rush and I may redo later.
Timeline: this is by no means a complete timeline. But it helps out by keeping everything straight as I parcel out Mercer's time. Hope you can use it +Jim Sandoval ! Might be something there you can use. More will be added later.
