A fun surprise out of reach at Palisades Park.
Below are a couple views from Tongva Park on a walk with Jerry.
Someday I might get a bigger version of this photo from Kathleen and Cheyenne’s Cinco de Mayo party. Hello neighbors!
Not much for April showers so May flowers might be a problem.
I’ve been thinking about planting Jasmine over my arbor too, just thinking, not doing. Our plan was to walk and then enjoy a happy hour but it was too hot to walk so we enjoyed a happy two hours instead.
And her kumquat tree is what it is supposed to be unlike mine, a sad story with no point in the telling.
To eat Monday Lunch Out West! Marsha took Tom’s big car and Alicia took herself because she had to leave early. We ate outside under the arbor, nice shade, good temperature, comfortable enough with the table and chairs, and I’m SO pleased to report, no flies.
I can’t believe I didn’t take any pictures of the set-up because I was happy with the outcome of it all. We were celebrating two birthdays, Marsha and Maxine, so as well as the yummy potluck, we had two desserts. FUN!

Lucky dog me! I won’t list out all the fun we’ve had, cooking, walking around, stopping off for treats, we even made TIKTOKs and it was a total blast.
You can follow Rome’s @formygrandma0 (that’s a zero) to see our tiktok fun first hand. If you don’t know tiktok then you might not get the jokes, it’s a whole civilization there up in tiktok land, but what we made is pretty funny on its own! We all contributed to all of them, a real group effort!
Merlyn and Hilda are doing their big remodel and thought they wouldn’t have a place for this rug. Say I, if you’re absolutely sure, before you sell it to someone else will you sell it to me?! Hilda dropped it by and said why don’t you live with it for a while just to be sure.
Oh yes, it’s mine now! Different light, different colors, all good.
Mostly I lust after the house in Bosch. It is a real house and google will show it to you. None of the pictures do it TV-show justice. Fortunately it’s surrounded by not so lovely houses and you can’t walk anywhere from it. So actually I don’t want that house. I lust after it, but I don’t want it.
The house in this picture is a screen shot from 9-1-1. (9-1-1 and especially 9-1-1 Lone Star are pass-the-time TV procedurals where all the characters are likeable. That’s nice.) The house is not what I thought would be to my taste and yet I like it so much.
Our first time together for a meal in How Long?! That’s right, more than a year.

We still kept our distance for eating, DAR&L on one side and we three fully vaccinated ‘seniors’ on the other. I solicited everyone’s choice from Veggie Grill and I think it worked out well. They packaged the food so nicely and we each got what we wanted.
And Cynthia sent this super-sweet Happy Mother’s Day bouquet!
There are three big home remodeling projects in my life that I can think of now. Maybe I’ve forgotten something? I looked up about the cost of plywood and the consensus was since mills closed because of covid, and weather, and mill operators had fears of a real estate crash that didn’t materialize, demand has simply outstripped supply.
Rome took this picture of the layers of materials that make up a house.
