I know it may be hard to believe, but it's a gloomy, foggy type morning here in Pasadena today. I thought at first it was a light rain, but I think it's just the mist you get from fog.
Last night we ventured out on the freeway system to Studio City. It's sort of scary because even though there's a lot of traffic up north...it's nothing like southern California. It seems they are all going 85 mph, bumper to bumper...cutting in and out of lanes. Almost like a ride at the amusement park, except this ride can be deadly. Anyway, we went to eat at a place called Jerry's Famous Deli. I guess a lot of the stars eat there at times. The food was good but a little expensive. I had a half of a bacon, lettuce & tomato sandwich which came with a little bowl of cole slaw and another little bowl of baked beans~$9.00 !!
We drove back thru Laurel Canyon (winding & twisty 2 lane road) and came out on Hollywood Blvd. Last year we spent a day walking along Hollywood Blvd and I took pictures of many of the "stars" in the concrete sidewalk. (If you go back to my entries of May 2007, you'll see those). But last night we just "cruised " the Blvd. There were a lot of people out, especially in the area of the Kodak Theater and Mann's Chinese theater.
Bob's daughter, Hope, is still trying to get over a nasty cold, so right now she's back in bed resting. We are all invited to dinner at some friend's of Hope & Jerry's tonight. I met them at the party last Saturday night and they are so nice. I'm being told that their house is 10,000 sq feet and has an elevator in it (that will be helpful for me, as my right knee is still acting up.) You all know I'd love to take pictures but I don't think that would be polite...so there probably won't be any.
I'm doing laundry here today, as well as submitting an Avon order. It seems weird to do my Avon order when I'm bout 2 miles from the Pasadena Branch Avon building. My order will go there electronically and then by next Thursday they will put it on a truck and deliver it to my front porch on Saturday. (And I won't even be home yet, my son is going over to put it in the house).
I've talked to my school chum, Judi, who lives in San Diego several times this last week. She was hoping to be able to drive up here today but had some things pop up she couldn't get out of, so she may come up next Saturday after we get back from our cruise. We'll dock in San Diego on Tuesday but she'll be busy cleaning teeth (she's a dental hygienist). If she can't make it next Saturday, I'll see her sometime in the next 4 or 5 months when she comes to Washington to visit her family.
Sunday we will be doing the final packing for the cruise. Hope is going to take us to the dock over by San Pedro. I just hope the weather is nice for our "sail away" out of Los Angeles. I really appreciate the emails and comments that I've received about off-shore excursions. We will be doing a few....I know I definitely don't want to take off by ourselves in Ensenada. That would not be a good place to be left behind if something happened. None of the ones we are considering are very expensive, so that's a good thing!
Well, folks...that's about all for now. I may try to do another quick entry Sunday and let you know about the 10,000 sq ft house......until next time, Linda
