When Birthday Month began I made a pledge: “I’m going to have a minimum of one adventure each week,” I said, “and I’ll tell you about my adventures here…an adventure is something I haven’t done before.” Today’s post is about best laid plans. For Birthday Week, and I mean for my actual birthday, John had […]

Friends (Birthday Month Adventure #3)

Friends (Birthday Month Adventure #3)

When I decided to have an adventure each week during birthday month, I hadn’t realized how hard it would be to include adventures in my schedule. I defined an adventure as something I hadn’t done before, which alleviates the pressure somewhat. All I had to do was go to a library branch I hadn’t visited […]

Wilma: the Report

Wilma: the Report

Wilma has been living with us for 9 months. We’re a family. I remember this with Boz, the feeling that his presence transformed us from a couple into a family. But we’re a different family with Wilma because Wilma is a different person. She’s more rambunctious (gross understatement), though only a few months younger than […]

Southwest Museum

Southwest Museum

The Southwest Museum is another place I’ve always wanted to visit but hadn’t until Birthday Adventure Month. Maybe always wanting to go but never having gone is one of my unconscious criteria for an adventure. I’m determined to have at least one adventure per week this month. It’s not easy to schedule adventures! I’m so […]

Pasadena History

Pasadena History

If you’re a Pasadena history afficionado, two new exhibits at the Pasadena Museum of History are for you. Try your wits against Ann Erdman, who curated the Mystery History exhibit. She poses the question, “Where are we? And what’s happening?” pairing photos and items from the Museum’s collection. You know this one, surely? I hadn’t […]

E. Waldo Ward Ranch

E. Waldo Ward Ranch

  This 1902 barn is the most well-known view of the E. Waldo Ward Ranch, the first of my birthday month adventures. The tower is where they stored their weekly water delivery back then.   I hadn’t seen photos of the house before. I don’t know if you can tell from this photo but this […]

An Informed Public

An Informed Public

Transparency in government is always an issue, and lately the spotlight is on Pasadena. So an event coming up at the Women’s City Club and hosted by the League of Women Voters-Pasadena Area is particularly timely. Thursday March 5 at 9:30 AM, get a load of this panel: Ann Erdman (former Pasadena Public Information Officer), […]

Ten Hands – Five Pianos

Ten Hands – Five Pianos

This was new to me: ensemble piano playing on the fly. Like maybe you’ve never even read the music before, much less met the other players. You just get together and play. Each person plays a different part of the music. It’s like an orchestra of fingers. Veteran musician David Cutter is Mr. David of […]

Pasadena Library’s 2nd Annual Author Fair

Pasadena Library’s 2nd Annual Author Fair

Are you coming by Pasadena’s Central Library (285 E. Walnut St.) this Saturday, February 21st? Of course you are, because it’s highly likely that at least one of your author friends (me) will be there. And probably more than one. It’s the library’s 2nd annual Author Fair, 10am-2pm, and oh boy! Everyone’s going to be […]

A previous owner of our house tex-coated the place and that has always kind of bothered me. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo
