Milk Man

Not finding the Broguiere's Egg Nog on the super market shelves yet this season we made the drive to Montebello's Dairy to get it straight from the source. My Milk Man is holding a carton containing bottles of Milk, Chocolate Milk and four bottles of Egg Nog.

Happy Holidays!

From an Office Window

After the rain this week I've got a pretty view from my 12th floor office looking north to the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory. Good weather for hiking the Ferndale Trail up to the Observatory.

La Mano Press

Will and I took a trip downtown to stop by La Mano Press' art sale. They're shutting down the Los Angeles shop. I picked up a piece by Emilia Garcia printed on an alter candle, and Will a great piece by Artemio Rodriguez himself.

The day was cool and we had just left Costco where we bulked up on pet food, litter, and Diet Pepsi. The place is always, always a nightmare of clueless drivers clogging up the traffic flow in the parking lot. I really never ever cease to wonder why some people will sit there with three cars stacked behind them and wait for someone to unload and pull out of their space, rather the park in a spot that would require them to walk a little bit. So, as we inched around just such a tardo, and drive on back to the rear of the store, there are literally dozens of available parking spaces.

With that chore done and behind us as we passed a Christmas Tree lot with day-glo flocked trees lined up against the chainlink fence Will scolded me for not having my seatbelt on, which caused me to then miss my shot as we shot by the day-glo flocked Christmas trees. Recovering I "click it or ticket" and we continued our way across the bridge to the artists space near the San Antonio Winery. No tardos, no hassles, no lines at the check out. Just art and artists, and a bowl of Reeses penut butter cups, and Chicklets gum, and my sweetie pie. Happy days.
