Friday April 20th..Sunny California, My Foot !!

It's pouring rain here today, started about midnight last night. There's always this ongoing discussion between myself and Bob's son in law, Jerry, about the LA weather versus Seattle-Tacoma weather.  He thinks it rains every day up in the Northwest.  So today, when I came out of the camper I had an umbrella up and when I walked up to the door he started laughing, I thought he was going to fall off his chair.  He accused us of going to church yesterday & praying for rain.  We are talking about going over to the Huntington Library/Museum today.  Hope and I drove over there last night but it was closed.  What I saw of the grounds was beautiful. We did take a drive around the Rose Bowl...lots of activity there...runners, kids playing soccer and lots of people riding bikes. The Rose Bowl sits in an area of beautiful home...so I always love to drive by.  Yesterday she took Bob & I to downtown Las Angeles.  We drove thru the wholesale district and then went to the old Million Dollar TheaterA friend of theirs. Robert, and a group of other people are in the process of restoring it.  I think it was originally built in 1919 and was really something back in those days.  Charlie Chaplin and other great old stars played there.  It has 2,000 seats and even tho it needs a lot of work still, it it breath taking to see the beautiful architecture, etc.  Boy if those walls could talk...I'm sure they would have some interesting stories. I took some pictures but it was kind of dark in there so the pictures aren't all that great. 

We are talking about heading out of here Monday or Tuesday.  We haven't decided if we're going to come straight up I-5 or take the slower more scenic route on Highway 101 as yet. 

Hope all is well with all of you out there in J-land...take care and until next time....Linda

I am sorry it is raining on your parade today.  Further south here in San Diego, it has not started raining yet, but it is windy, dreary and chilly.  Yesterday it was a gorgeous day and everybody worked out in their yards.  It has been a cooler April across the nation that is for sure.  Have a good weekend and a safe trip home.  Hope you take the scenic 101.  It is so pretty along the coast.

Yeah our weather men up here said our rain was going to California, I guess it did.
It was a beautiful day up here and will be for most of tomorrow.  How fun to see the Rose Bowl and that interesting theater, I'd love to see that.  Take care driving home.  Joni
