Gut Yontiff

John and I had just finished a late dinner last night when there came a knocking at our door. Magazine salesmen. I’d seen them in the neighborhood earlier and I wasn’t going to answer. But do magazine salesmen giggle? I opened the door. Four pretty girls stood in a row on our front porch, dressed […]

Bathe R Doggie

Bathe R Doggie

Some people would like to wait even longer between baths than they already do, but some people run in the Arroyo and roll in unspeakable things until they stink to high heaven so as unfortunate as it may appear and as pitiful as they may look, some people are finally forced to bathe, as cruel […]

Alliance Frankaise

Alliance Frankaise

The official address of the Alliance Francaise de Pasadena is 34 E. Union Street. (Pardon my lack of cedille on the c in “Francaise,” but Blogger freaks out when I try to insert such things. There should also be an accent aigu on that first e in cedille, but…) Anyway, the entrance is not on […]

Theme Day: Under Construction

Theme Day: Under Construction

A few years ago, the eyesore at the corner of Washington and El Molino was a problem liquor store that plagued the neighborhood. This photo is almost exactly two years old. Now, thanks to Joel Bryant and Trademark Development Group, it’s about to become the Classics at Washington Park, a group of eight craftsman-inspired townhomes. […]

Altadena Urban Farmers Market

Altadena Urban Farmers Market

If the photo looks a bit homey it’s because the Altadena Urban Farmers Market takes place at someone’s house. Granted, it’s a big house, but it is indeed private property. If you’re local you’re likely familiar with the Zane Grey Estate, owned by Steven Rudicel and Gloria Putnam, a young Altadena couple. I can’t claim […]

Zen Monday: #148

Zen Monday: #148

I know it’s a holiday but it’s also Monday. I wouldn’t leave you hanging without your Zen. Is this your first Zen Monday at PDP? Here’s the deal: today’s the day I don’t give you my interpretation of the photo. Instead, you give me yours. There’s no winner, no prize (although I admit folks get […]

Sermon on the Mountain

Sermon on the Mountain

St. Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment. (He was pronounced a saint in July of 1228. Do you suppose they used the word “environment” then?) He was many other things as well; interesting guy. It’s a refreshing surprise to come across such works in our ramblings. It makes me feel privileged […]

Those would be limes. That would be salt. And over there is a pitcher of watermelon margaritas. Summer’s here. It’s official.

Favorite Place in Glendale

Favorite Place in Glendale

My Burbank friend and I have finally found the perfect middle ground: Favorite Place (that’s its name) in Glendale. I’m not a foodie. I’m not a restaurant reviewer. I can’t describe the delicate blabbedy blah on the palate or the minglings of fine spices in the this and the that. What I can tell you […]

Seriously, Though

Seriously, Though

It’s safe to say that every moment in one’s life is the result of all previous moments, but some moments are more culminating than others. Every once in a while there’s the rare instance that requires you to stop and remember what brought you there. It’s a gratitude moment. It’s standing at the end of […]
