Magic Castle Fire Sale

We bought the panel you see in this photo at the Magic Castle Fire Sale. After the fire on Halloween, there were some things that didn't find their way back into the Castle. This is heavy wood panel that for decades separated the dining room from the hall leading to the Palace of Mystery. Milt Larsen autographed it for us. Maybe we'll use it as a headboard...

Easter Sunrise

A tradition with our neighborhood is to take a boat out before sunrise on Easter morning, and watch the First Baptist Church Sunrise Service from the lake with close friends. We take coffee, fruit, and breakfast bagels. This was the view this year on Lake Down. It is so beautiful and peaceful.

Mardi Gras Float Riders

Every year we ride in the Mardi Gras parade at Universal Studios. This float was a little scary! Called "Earth, Wind and Fire" - it made cackle sounds and shot steam and confetti every few minutes. The hard part of the job is grabbing handfuls of bead necklaces and trying not to tangle them. I wasn't so good at aiming, I think I hit about 10 people in the face! Oops
