In Progress

In Progress

I did some transplanting yesterday and began an attempt at organizing the wasteland we call our back yard. These are not my plants. I said I began an attempt. I have transplanted three plants. This is the fence and driveway of someone who’s much further along in their project. Still, I feel good about my [...]

Paper Trees

Paper Trees

I’ve heard of paper being made from trees. These trees turn things around; they look like they’re made of paper. The bark peels off them in great sheets, each tree is like a writing tablet. What would I use to write with on such paper? Perhaps a bird would deign to perch on my finger [...]

Pasadena Sandwich Company

Pasadena Sandwich Company

I kept meaning to try the Pasadena Sandwich Company but there was never a parking space in front. Well, duh. There’s a parking lot in back. They have plenty of parking. Inside they have plenty of clocks, plenty of hats and plenty of food. My Veggie Supreme was so big I was able to eat [...]

There’s a lot going on in dog news today. photo by Skye MoorheadRemember Skye Moorhead, my photographer friend? She found Jersey, this young, female pit bull mix, abandoned in one of the studios in her complex. Jersey is, according to Skye, “sweeter than both my dogs put together…she happily let me clean her ears and [...]

Our Heritage, the Right to Vote

Our Heritage, the Right to Vote

Why is Natalie smiling? Because this beautiful dress is only a costume, it’s not 1913, and she’s not a real suffragette. She’s already got the right to vote, thanks to the women who came before her. This year marks the 90th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, allowing women the [...]

Moda Optique

Moda Optique

I’ve always dreaded getting new eyeglasses. I’ve put off shopping for frames. I’ll be wearing the things on my face, of all places, so they’d better be perfect. Apparently, what I’ve needed all along was Hratch, the owner, Optician and Eyewear Consultant at Moda Optique at 415 South Lake Avenue. John discovered Hratch (pronounced as [...]

Zen Monday: #100

Here it is. #100. Welcome to Zen Monday. In case this is your first, allow me to explain: 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. There’s no right or wrong. We’re here to have fun. I look [...]

Misty Morning Pair

Misty Morning Pair

Friday, Boz and I took a misty morning walk around the Rose Bowl Stadium with a good friend and her perky pooch. Walking, running, or biking around the Rose Bowl is something a lot of people do regularly. Even the mayor does it. But I had never done it before. I take my camera everywhere [...]

Sunset Fire Road

Sunset Fire Road

The Sunset Fire Road was closed to hikers after last autumn’s Station Fire, which killed two firefighters and burned 251 square miles of forest. Not to be confused with the Sunset Trail, which remains off limits, the Sunset Fire Road is open again. In Altadena, turn north off of Loma Alta Road at the flashing [...]

Santa Anita Racetrack

Santa Anita Racetrack

I’m one of the few people in southern California who didn’t watch the Lakers beat the Celtics last night. I knew LA won, though, when at about 3 minutes to 9 o’clock my quiet little block erupted with cheers, fireworks and party horns. I’m thrilled with the Lakers’ win. Even if no one got any [...]
