Ah, back at the ole Lounge. Feels good. Feels right. More Hawaiian coffee, por favor.

Oh, I see that DP invited Judy Garland here to sing! I love that song. Yes, indeed, a very fitting song for that day. And I see that Spira brought in.... The Flower Duet! OMG, that is so my favorite song, that I sing it whenever I hear it... or even when I don't hear it.

Been busy. Been here for a few days. MrD said that Frank Sinatra's house might have too many bad vibes in it ....ghosts or gangsters or sumthin like that... so MrD and BFF and I chose this place instead. No bad vibes, but I did see a skunk waddle across the front landscaping by the gate one early morning, and another day a roadrunner ran across the driveway.

Oh, I see that Spira is on summer vacation. Let's see, I'm going to have to think up an essay to write when she gets back. Title, What I Did During the Summer.....

MrD is so full of wisdom. The other day he said, why is it that, when people go crazy, they do violent things, like shoot guns. Why can't they go crazy and do things like make cotton candy for everyone, or clean everybody's shoes? He also said that starting from now on we're going to celebrate birthdays for three days: pre-Birthday, Birthday, and post-Birthday. I'll admit that, with retirement, I coulda spent more time celebrating my birthday, so we're going to start doing that with the next birthday, maybe BFF's sister's Bday, then continue on from there.

You know, olaru, I was in the grocery store the other day, and an older cowboy tipped his hat at me, to say, "Howdy, Ma'am." Although my town is continuing to increase population with emigrants from Southern Ca and the Bay Area, I love living in a town where cowboys, ranchers, and farmers tip their hats.

I finally found something new to do. I wouldn't say I have a bucket list, but if I did, then horseback riding lessons were definitely crossed off a while back. So, what might I find new, if anything, to do at this time in my Life? MrD and I finally signed up for library cards at our local library recently, but that was about as exciting as, well, signing up for library cards. Besides, I'd had a card there years ago, when the library card was still made out of paper, and barcodes had just been invented. Well, as I was rummaging among my cd's for something to play, I saw an old cd of Swiss yodels. Hey, I could learn to yodel! Yep, I told MrD to set up a schedule to use our bedroom "studio"; he can play his guitar in there, and I will practice yodeling. So, how 'bout if I show you guys what I've learned so far? Here goes.....

...... wow, where is everybody?? .....MrD, what time did I sign up for the studio today? Can I have more time? Looks like I need more practice.

I sense a disturbance in the farce.... olaru!

Bill Haley. What an artist, crossing over into rock from country. Maybe the yodeling helped. Someday I will yodel like that. In re to the woman on the album cover, no, that is not me, but rather it is my mother, God rest her soul. People say I look like her, so you are forgiven for inquiring. She did like her share of country music. Maybe it was too many twangs of Duane Eddy's guitar, but none of her children developed a taste for country western. Actually, out of all the children, I think I'm the only one who even has an appreciation for the genre. Note: see above post in re to type of town in which I have lived pretty much all my adult life. I think I still may have that cowgirl outfit. I could rummage around for it and wear it when I open my summer yodeling concert series here at LN.

So, as I was going through my cd's, I noticed that my old Yosemite Sounds cd was missing. I ordered another one, but when I listened to this one, something was missing. Hey, I thought, all the animal sounds are there, but where are the sounds of the waterfalls and rivers?? I emailed the company to complain. I got back a very nice email explaining that, because of the drought, there were no water sounds to be heard, so they were taken out of this release.

I've been working on my back-to-school essay for Miss Spira:

What I Did on Summer Vacation

I went to this really cool house in Palm Springs. It had a pool and a bar. My favorite part was going to the bar from the pool. My least favorite part was trying not to slip on the terrazzo floors when I went from the pool to the bar. The End.

Well, back to whatever I was doing before I dropped by.

Oh, DP, yes! It was indeed Palm Springs!! Since we were there in summer, we had the whole town to ourselves (even Jensen's market). Now, I would advise people not to go to PS in the summer, unless they like heat, which we do. Although, even for me, I could only take so many days where the mornings are "cool" at around 80 deg. OTOH we have been to PS early in the summer some years and were treated to chilly 80 deg weather, when a storm would come through.

We love the mid-century modern and vintage architecture. I seem to remember that by the 1980s people went more to the latest, newest places growing around the area, and PS fell by the wayside. Then around 2000 there was a resurgence of appreciation for PS, and homes/hotels were revitalized. We didn't get to Melvyn's this trip, but that is a must for anyone who loves the PS Sinatra era.

The link I included in my first post on the page shows the house we rented. Perfect! Even though it is in a windy part of town (Tuscany area), the house was situated so that it blocked and slowed the gusts to a breeze. Also, could view the top of the tram while sitting in the living area and backyard. Next time, we might rent a house in the "Movie Colony" area in town, closer to downtown. One thing, no yard has green grass anymore! Oh, and we left the day that the wildfire started on HWY 5 in Cajon Pass; that was part of the route we took home, and if we had stayed even a couple more hours in PS, we would have been caught up in either that disaster or the resulting traffic nightmare. And then there was that bridge washout that closed Hwy 10.... to Californians those highway disasters signal the End Times


olaru, dear, my sisters said that we buried Mom in that outfit, boots and all. I could wear that blue dress here, however.

Jeeves, a round for everybody. Put it on my tab. .....Oh, MrP wants to know when I'll be settling up?? Kindly inform him that I will come back to the bar and settle my tab after I visit the new Lounge Noir Casino. ...wish me luck...
