Ray was almost eaten by a giant Troll. Fortunately the Fremont Troll did not find friend to be delicious. Troll spit him back out. We had a good Cheap Date at Ivar’s and Gas Works Park.

Seattle: Baby Boomer Travel and Hats

April 9, 2009

Why Hats Rock:

When you go on vacation, you want to get up and out of the hotel as quickly as possible. You want to see the Vatican Museum. You want to see the Great Wall. You want to see The Queen of England!

Well, if you weren’t born with wash n wear hair: Wear a flipping travel hat to get the most out of your vacation!

Seattle: Baby Boomer Travel Photo – Aix-en-Provence Eating Croque Monsieur

April 5, 2009

I am in Seattle, sitting at my computer, cold.

And, then I see this old picture of me (pink hat) and two pals. It reminds me that somewhere in time, I am smiling and warm and happy-go-lucky or holly-go-lightly or …. ok, I’ll stop rambling.

We were having lunch in Aix-en-Provence. (About 4 years ago.) I was eating a croque-monsieur sandwich because I knew what it was. I always ordered the same few things. Next time I will branch out into eating a croque-madame.

Anyway, this photo makes me happy. It reminds me of Paul Simon’s song “KODACHROME”. Funny this.

The Getty Museum View and my Friend Clementine

You can’t imagine how much I worship this free view and this free museum….and My Darling Clementine.

I also miss the other cheap fun things in Los Angeles like
“Pink’s Hot Dogs” at Melrose and La Brea. Yum.

I like Pink’s better than the dogs in NYC.
