Meet my brother, Rick.
Me and Rick
He lives in Colorado on a horse ranch...along with his daughters, ages 16 and 19 and his wonderful wife.
I'm flying out for a 3 day visit this weekend. I emailed and asked if I should bring a heavy or light jacket. "Bring everything!" my 16-year-old niece wrote back. "It's snowing right now." Snowing? Oh...and it could get warm.
So I'm boarding the plane with a heavy jacket and a wide-brimmed sun hat.
This is what my brother and I used to look like.
So I'm leaving Mozart. But first, we will have a date...an evening at Newport Beach.
He just finished working on a movie about the history of surfing in Newport Beach. It's premiering the night before I leave. It should be a lot of fun.
Yes it's quite an exciting week...with my work sandwiched in between.
Speaking of exciting...I took Letty to JC Penney so she could shop for some snappy new tops and when we returned to the car, there sat a $350 parking ticket.
We had forgotten to put up the handicap placard. We drove straight to City Hall to explain ourselves. We came up with some good ones like..."I'm 80 years old—and you expect me to remember everything??"
City Hall was closed until Monday. So today we drove up there, again.
Guess what. They lowered the ticket to $25.00. Hooray!
Thanks for visiting...and I'll be back to report on Colorado!
