Well folks, after a several day, a forced hiatus from my blog postings due to a slow computer, here I am back to pick up again on my wonderful California adventure. By the way, my new iMac computer is scheduled to be delivered this Wednesday. I've already cleared out a spot for it in my home office. That was a job that had to be done but did leave me drained. I just don't have the energy that I used to have.
So, to pick up where I last left off of our fabulous California ten day dream vacation in Los Angeles (West Hollywood and environs), after our dinner at the El Compadre restaurant Pat and I took a stroll down Sunset Boulevard. What a delight to take an evening stroll in January and not have to bundle up against the cold. The temperature was about 70 degrees and low humidity. Just perfect.
|A store called "The Hustler" on Sunset Strip. What are the odds of that? We didn't stop in (I don't remember why) but we will next year. I have no idea what they're selling in that store but I am curious (yellow)|
One storefront that caught my eye was a super heroes store. Oh how I wish Sassy Bear was here. He would have been in super hero heaven. There was a time when I was into super heroes; the comic books and figurines and all that but I just have too much in my life now. I have to do some serious uncluttering, not that super heroes are clutter mind you. But it was fun to see everything they had in this one of a kind, unique store.
|If you have the room, here are some cool super hero figures - wow what I would have done with these in the day|
Here's a short video of Pat and I as we close in on the Coffee Bean, a Starbucks clone in West Hollywood. I'm telling you folks, we really had a fabulous time in West Hollywood and Los Angeles and California. I am so looking forward to going back next year. Yep, I have established an annual trip. Always fun to have something to look forward to. I remember all those years in the Seventies that I used to vacation in Provincetown. So long ago now but so many good memories that continue to live. Oh how I wish I had videos of my time there. Then there was the long drought when I didn't go anywhere (from 1980 until now). Now I'm having my last hurrah. This is great folks.
