|Me at "The Price is Right!" last year (the poor photo is a result of taking it from the TV show - I had to freeze frame to capture my two seconds of celebrity glad-handing our friend Lloyd who was called to "Come on down!"|
We're going to "The Price is Right!" again this year!
|The line outside CBS Television studio waiting to get into "The Price is Right!" - this is the day last year that we stood in line for about three hours. Not to worry, they do keep you entertained and the weather was beautiful that day!|
I just finished printing my tickets. We'll be on the show Valentine's Day, February 14th, 2017.
|Our "Priority Ticket" for Valentine's Day, February 14th, 2017. This guarantees us entrance to the show after waiting in line for hours - it's worth it!|
This is also the third year we (Pat and I) will be visiting Los Angeles (West Hollywood). This is our annual tradition now.
|Our flight from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, five hours in the Tube in the Sky|
Both Pat and I love Los Angeles. Oh I know, THE TRAFFIC. Thank goodness Pat is an excellent driver. He's been driving in Toronto traffic his whole life. Did I get lucky or what to have such an experienced chauffeur?
|LA Freeway traffic|
I was warned the first time that I visited Los Angeles . . . . "the traffic!" Tell me about it. It IS A BEAR. But with Pat's terrific driving skills and calm demeanor, the only problem we had was the time it took to traverse just a few miles from LA to Pasadena or Santa Monica. Where I live now I'm only ten miles from Rehoboth Beach. I can get to Rehoboth in about ten minutes. Santa Monica and Pasadena (and Burbank) are CLOSER to where we were staying in West Hollywood but it took us at least an hour to get from point A to point B. Yes, the freeway in LA is surely a sight to behold and experience.

But you know what folks? After we return from one of our forays into the excitement that is LA, we return to the comfort of wherever we are staying. This year we chose an Air B n B in West Hollywood.

On this our third visit to LA, I hope to do one of those studio tours. Either Paramount, Universal or even go to Disneyland. Come on Pat! But whatever we do, and we do play it loosey goosey, we have a great time.

Other than our planned visit to "The Price is Right!", we have nothing set in stone in our schedule other than to reunite with our friends Nadege and Tony.

So here Pat and I are off to another adventure. Maybe this time we'll be discovered by a Hollywood agent!
