December 10

Ken and I had a good day. We ate, sat in cars, listened to music, and enjoyed an extended visit. Thanks Ken!

Also, on and off for the last few days, first I watched the whole season 1 again, and then season 2. It's a good show. It makes you want to look up things.

December 9

Maxine's annual holiday party! I took two pictures. See the photo in the phone. That's Geri's Croatian mother with Marija who hardly ever gets to meet people who know about Croatia!

Maxine's daughter and co-host Shirley in the middle and friends from the neighborhood.

I've been coming to this party for so many Christmases now that I very much look forward to having a chat with all the people I get to see once a year.

Holiday Best to one and all!

December 8

I'm going to want a bunch of pictures of my tree too. I smile every time I catch sight of it.

December 7

Nancy and I had the Happy Hour dinner at Fig and we both agreed - YUM!

December 5

In the plaza of the shopping center where the girls have their dentist. Their dentist's office is the amusement park of dentist offices and I got a good kick out of looking around.

Then we spent 5-10 minutes picking out their going-to-the-dentist prize. I should have taken a picture of that!

December 1-4

Some catch-up.

Muriel and I went for a stroll on one of the Marina del Rey jetties.

Where there are birds...

...and then we went to the Garden Center and spent money. I didn't buy a rain chain yet but now I know they have them here. Soon!

This looks like a walk at Palisades Park.

I discovered some missing pictures from my Australia story, like this Roadhouse on the drive from Uluru to Alice Springs where I picked up four hitchhiking local people and drove them to the next roadhouse an hour away. It was quite the experience!

And I missed a whole day from Sydney including a great run to Manley and a stroll through the Royal Botanical Garden that you can find on the link.
