Last night I arrived safely back home to Kansas. The second thing I did upon arrival was go outside and look up at the sky. I am to be reporting to sister what I can see from here. She is to be keeping me informed of how many steps she is taking. It is our astronomy/fitness long-distance coaching plan. It's anyone's guess who will fall off the wagon first.
Meanwhile I am missing Corky aka "the Missus". She is my sisters 2nd favorite cat. For this reason I am extremely partial to her. We always have lots of petting sessions when I visit.
I also miss wandering back alleys and coming upon ginormous colorful bougainvillea's and traipsing through Arlington Gardens to see all the succulents.
If you are planning a trip to LA anytime you will want to stop in at Malo and get yourself a Tia Angelina. I will advise that if you have one in the middle of the day, after you have been flying all morning, you may need a nap afterwards. I will also suggest you get some burnt habanero & creme to go with your chips followed by one squash blossom taco and one al pastor taco.
Before we headed up north on our Grand Tour of California we did these regular LA things. Cruising the streets on foot and by car. Looking for the unusual and extraordinary. You are guaranteed to spot many. Especially if your tour guide happens to be an expert on all things LA.
On this trip I finally got up the nerve to draw some roses. Next post will contain my efforts. I will also be featuring an exclusive series of sketches I did of Mary Ann and I. You will need to empty your bladder before viewing. And don't have any liquid in your mouth either.
