He's very cute. I can just imagine GBabe turning into a shy little girl around him. LOL. Our future looks bright with this new generation.

Oh that would be so cute. If you're ever in the North San Diego County area give me a headsup on Crass and we'll try to make it happen.

It is just raining right now here in N. San Diego County. The forecast is showing the winds to not be as strong as anticipated. Yay. Maybe we won't loose power. I am stocked up, hunkered down and ready to do this thing. Of course my neighbors want to have a "hurricane" happy hour at their house. Okay then!
I'm peacefully watching my hummingbirds enjoy their breakfast and their little hummingbird swing. Kitty TV for Lili and Lola.
I think the desert is going to get hammered.Hope everyone stays safe.

The pinball machine brought back memories I haven't thought of for a long time. Years ago I worked as one of the pre-production secretaries on the Brooke Shield's movie, Tilt, where she played a pinball savant. She was still a child and her crazy unpredictable volitile mother made the production challenging.
The director would send limos to pick up various aspiring young actresses to bring them to his office to audition for supporting parts, The ultimate "casting couch" situation. Many shenanigans & colorful characters.It was the 70's baby!

I have been remiss in posting. Been busy with tax season. Nothing like the hours I used to put in, but still a lot for me. I'm in beast mode. After the 18th, I will go back to working a couple of days a week for the rest of the year. My garden awaits.

Checking in with some random thoughts.

Tomorrow we are having my daughter's birthday celebration. She will be 43! Her past few birthdays have been a wash for her due to covid and some other issues the past couple of years. So this year we are going to make it v nice!
GBabe is quickly becoming a tween.I took her to Hot Topic & the mall the other day and she was beside herself in glee. I bought her some Madonna gloves. She said the 80's are a big thing at school rn. I told her that the 80's her friends think of are nothing like how they really were. I left it at that. I also bought her a big faux fur coat reminscent of Penny Lane's. teehee.
I can always tell when Faux News is on a tear about something, because Lonnie my neighbor puts out her 'merkan flag. It's out today, I presume it has something to do with her King's pending indictments.What a nut!
My little rescue one eyed Siamese kitty, Lilibet is growing like a weed and is so much fun. But much like a toddler, if it's too quiet she is either doing something dangerous or destructive. She and Lola are BFF's. It was the perfect match.
I has a sad because I can no longer wear sexy high heels (havent' been able to for a long time). I should know better than to cruise shoe websites.
All the rain we have had makes me think of Seattle and I am ready for some sunny days.

I'm glad I didn't miss my window to post. I didn't have time the other day. I have had a lot of free time the past few months, so I got a lot of reading in. Here are a few:

The Red Widow: The Scandal that Shook Paris and the Woman Behind it All (current read)

Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents
Isabel Wilkerson (She is such a beautiful writer)

Sweet Soft Plenty Rhythm (about an aging jazz musician)

The Ensemble (I think this turned out to be YA book, but it was enjoyable)

H is for Hawk (a little gruesome in spots, but good)

Blonde a Novel by Joyce Carol Oates (Hated it)

Washington Black: A novel
Esi Edugyan (Loved this book!)

The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music
Dave Grohl (meh)
