…..were the dances of choice for ‘DANCE DOWNTOWN’ at the Music Center Friday evening.  Saw lots of cowboy boots as a lot of people seemed to have gotten the memo.


Tomiko & I were on our way to Kendall’s Brasserie…. and once there the menu had to be studied (although I think we have it memorized).


The Chilled Tomato & Cucumber soup with Avocado, Mango & Tiger Shrimp is a must have always……


…’s so good but the Sea Bass was incredible!


I get so sated & bleary eyed that I always forget to photograph the desert.  A Baked Apple Tart with Vanilla Gelato & Caramel Sauce was hard to share. You’ll just have to imagine….

Then it was on to the Ahmanson for ‘The Scottsboro Boys’.  This ‘minstrel show’ with music & lyrics by the brilliant (Chicago, New York, New York, Cabaret) John Kander & Fred Ebb, was based on the tragic but true life story of nine young black men wrongfully accused & sentenced to life imprisonment in Alabama.  They were pardoned 80 years later but I suppose that was of little good to them.  As bright as the music was I found it to be too sad.


O.K., back to work.  At this point in cataloging my work, Nikka is completely surrounded as she makes entries in the lap top.  We’ve got a great numbering system going but I suspect it will be tweaked as time goes on.




….and more….


….puppy’s wondering what on earth we could be doing for so long…


It was definitely time for a ‘Habit’ break!


I like to kid myself that a ‘lettuce wrap’ is fewer calories and therefore it’s O.K. to pig out on their delicious fries!!!


Sweet potatoes are good for you….right????


Tonight it’s Kentucky Fried for Father’s Day….oh boy, I’m in trouble now!


Mom loves their chocolate cake!


I need a nap!
