I’ve been ticketed by the blog police so I guess I better respond.
Nothing really new or extremely exciting happening around here. Since my last post some things have happened but most of you know about everything. Here’s a synopsis.
In December Ann moved into her own apartment. We are all very happy for her as this is the first time she’s been on her own. She moved into a one bedroom apartment that is about 2 miles from us. That means she’s close enough to take to bus if she needs a family fix. I think she’s got most everything she needs in her place now including broadband DSL from DSL Extreme.
Earlier this month Dale came to visit Southern California. You can read his description on his blog but I will add that it was GREAT having him here. The first weekend he and I went to the Getty Center on Saturday and the Reagan Library on Sunday. Neither place was all that much fun itself but spending time with Dale would have been enjoyable doing anything.
Last Monday Dale, Betty and I went to Universal Studios. I hadn’t been there in close to 16 years. It has changed a bit but the tram tour is very similar to what it was. The main difference is you don’t stop and get out now. They have added a few rides and shows and updated the others. The Animal Actors show still has the dog go backstage and bring out articles of clothing that a young boy is supposedly thinking about. Of course a bra is still the last thing. I guess they figure that never gets old.
After Universal we stopped by Dianna’s parents house to see if there was anything we wanted/needed from the estate. There were 4 of Betty’s paintings that we took to add to the one that was given to me many, many years ago. Then we went home, had dinner and said bye to Dale. Hopefully we will see him at least once more before he leaves SoCal.
The one thing different this year is we didn’t make the trip to Arizona yet because of Betty’s sciatic nerve issue. We are hoping we can go over in February when Dave and Lisa visit. We will have to see how she’s doing but I’m hoping.
