Vintage Altadena

Vintage Altadena

Ah…ah…ah… Ah… Ahhcross the street from Tangles and Locks, you’ll often see these babies parked in all their vintage glory (and I do mean glory) at what is now called Paulie’s Service Station. (Used to be Ronnie’s Automotive. Enlarge the top photo to see the Ronnie’s sign.) I went back and forth about whether or […]

Tangles and Locks

Tangles and Locks

Tangles and Locks barbershop, at 2025 N. Lake Avenue, has been an Altadena business for over 23 years. I’ve been meaning to stop by for a long time–not 23 years but a while, nonetheless–because I wanted to take a picture of the suit of armor standing in the back corner. Yesterday I was in the […]

Mild-mannered garage by day… But by night, it’s…(cue 1950’s scary movie music) Garage! of! Evil! Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Bet and Breakfast

Bet and Breakfast

Here’s the view you’re missing if you’re not having breakfast at Clocker’s Corner. Actually, this is only a peek into the panorama of peace for eyes and brain as you watch the horses take their morning workout. From the deck overlooking the Santa Anita Racetrack you can’t see much but the track itself, and beyond […]

No Trash Dumping, Either

Okay, you should not see […]

Bougainvillea Killer

Bougainvillea Killer

This wildflower grows alongside one of my favorite mountain trails. I’d like to grow things like this in my yard, along quiet (if short) pathways. The holiday and Karin Bugge’s recent Patch article (Why You Should Plant a Native Garden) inspired me to work in the garden yesterday. I want to create a native plant […]

Zen Monday: #153

Zen Monday: #153

It’s a Monday two-fer! Zen Monday and Independence Day! Happy Fourth of July and Happy Zen to you all. Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. Independence Day is the day Americans celebrate their independence from the […]

Peck Road Park

Peck Road Park

When Karen Klein spoke with passion about Peck Road Park in her guest author post here the other day, I had no idea where the park was. Apparently I’m in the majority. And that’s one of the park’s many pluses. Just get off the 210 at Myrtle and head south. Myrtle becomes Peck and there […]

Oranges

Oranges

Our orange tree is full of ripe oranges, with new little green ones coming in and needing space. Being the kind of person who has trouble growing weeds, I don’t question this. I just thank the universe and pick the oranges. These oranges are juicy and goo-ood. Two-syllable good. Some people can take ‘em or […]

Theme Day: The color green

Theme Day: The color green

I admit this one had me stumped. Pasadena just doesn’t have much green. We have other things, like hiking trails… …famous bridges… …and the occasional spot to sit and enjoy it all. But there’s not a whole lot of green. We have other colors, of course. Orange, for example… …red… …pink… …and even bleu. But […]
