What began as a cloudy day turned into rain by late afternoon. Where’s my sunny Southern California? More important, will it rain on ‘my’ parade. Please say no.
The ‘Easy Monday’ tune was “What A Fool Believes” by The Doobie Brothers. Last seasonal ‘Zany Day’ song is:
“Everybody pauses and stares at me. These two teeth are gone as you can see. I don’t know just who to blame for this catastrophe! But my one wish on Christmas Eve is as plain as it can be. __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ ….” Clue: He wants back what is missing, that’s all.
It goes without saying that it’s cold here. The afternoon rain yesterday was very different than the rain in Chiang Rai. It was cold rain. When it rains in Chiang Rai, it’s warm and that makes a big difference. Of course, there is the advantage of just having a downpour as opposed to a monsoon with sideways rain. Hmm.
After sleeping late we drove up to Brentwood to have lunch at Enzo & Angela’s, an Italian restaurant that I would highly recommend. We met our friend Richard and had a delightful time.
A few days ago we were driving on Duquesne Ave., where we lived for over 30 years. At the duplex where we lived we planted a maple tree. Today that tiny little sapling stands as a magnificent memory of another time.
Today’s photo is The Maple.
Hey, it’s New Year’s Eve. Have fun and be careful. Just think, it’s already 2015 on the other side of the world.
It must be Wacky Wednesday.
