Grammy Museum

While in the LA area took a little time to visit the Grammy Museum.  Neither of us are big on keeping up on all the latest singers however they had a special tribute to Frank Sinatra and oh my, what a grand tribute.  This place is 3 or 4 stories and how much fun to see snippets of all the singers over time.  Well worth the visit.  They had a section set as tribute to the Supremes too with their gowns and what nots but the Frank Sinatra tribute was very tastefully done.  Right next door they were kicking off a promotion weekend for the latest Star Wars movie.  We are not big star wars fans but fun to see all the people out for that too.

Griffith Park Observatory

While in LA for the weekend, took a little ride up to Griffith Park Observatory.  What a pretty day; albeit cold!  The wind was wicked but the sky was clear and it was so pretty.  This is a fun place to go for a view of the city and all folks out biking hiking and walking and just enjoying the day.  So glad we took the time to go up there for a look-see. It is not often we take time any more to just do fun things like we did when we were nomads. ha!

90th Birthday

This year our dear Aunt Tootie turned 90!  Wow!  What a fun time.  Drove over Los Angeles for a few nights and enjoyed the 90th party with relatives and sister Sandra and brother-in-law Tom.  Always wonderful to see this branch of the family.  They certainly know how to have a good time.
Besides the family being there, cousin Patrick hired these lovely ladies to sing and oh my goodness they were so good.  We enjoyed it all so much.

Thanksgiving turkey

This year we celebrated Thanksgiving at our house with some others in the neighborhood.  Our next door neighbor Ellen brought Tom here over for our delight.  He was so cute it was a shame to gobble him up.  A fun time was had by all.  The street we live on is so great about staying in tune with each other.  I know we appreciate all our neighbors and am sure most of them anyway feel the same.

Hiking group

There is a hiking group here at Dreamland that meets every Monday.  They find all sorts of places to get out for a little hike (sometimes longer).  This was an easy trail about 2 miles round trip to the Salt River out here in the east valley.  Great group of folks. Nice way to get to know more people.
