The gal at the carwash who manages to be so pretty despite that horse shoe in her nose.
Home for a couple of weeks between Saint Paul and South America.
I love big world-class cities and capital cities even when they’re not so world-class. I’m getting to visit four of them on this trip, Rio, Asuncion, Montevideo, and Buenos Aires.
And amazingly, I get to see Iguazu Falls. I’ve visited Niagara and Victoria and both experiences were so awesome I’ve been dreaming of visiting Iguazu for years, and now I get to go.
“The Greystone Mansion, also known as the Doheny Mansion, is a Tudor Revival mansion on a landscaped estate with distinctive formal English gardens, located in Beverly Hills, California. Architect Gordon Kaufmann designed the residence and ancillary structures, and construction was completed in 1928.”
After our stroll around the Greystone Mansion we went out in search of a park to eat our picnic, and here we are at the Will Rogers park in Beverly Hills not the big one out on Sunset. It was a Sunday afternoon and I was so fantastically amazed that we found this quiet and beautiful spot that was made for a Sunday afternoon picnic.
While I was in Saint Paul I got my tdap booster and took the prescribed dose of typhoid vaccine. Since I’m not going to the jungle this time I don’t have to take the malaria.
I always note to myself that insurance will not cover typhoid or malaria vaccines but they’d have to take care of me if I get typhoid or malaria which would be Much more expensive. I guess the insurance industry thinks it’s worth the risk so I have to think, actuarially-wise, I’m not going to get typhoid or malaria.
Home from Saint Paul, thanks Cynth, it was great to visit! And right in to the grandgirls’ Birthday Season.
Following are several of Angela’s pictures. I was there and we had so much fun doing everything for the Last Time of Being Eight. Last homework, last dinner, last bath etc. I wanted to take a Last Picture of Being Eight, but, are we surprised? I forgot.
Here she is ‘taking a quiz to find out if Dawson is a vampire boyfriend’ on her last day of being eight.
On the right, on her first day of being nine, Dawson gave her flowers and Calvin gave her the awesome unicorn balloon.
