7:52 am - Saturday - November 4th - SoCal - 50º F, humidity 76%, wind 1 mph out of the northwest.....clear blue skies! Forecast high for our corner of SoCal is 68º F.....great day for an outdoor wedding!


We didn't wake up until after 8 am Friday.....I always remark that the first night in a 'new' bed, or place I don't sleep well, but each time we return to our son's home I sleep better the first night, and this was the best I have slept....I think this is the 3rd, or 4th time we have stayed with Chris and Rochelle, so I guess I'm getting used to the bed.....it is a good bed, don't get me wrong.....I'm just used to MY bed.

We had a busy day scheduled so we were out of the house by 10:30 and on our way to our first appointment.......a haircut at Supercuts for moi......it's been almost 6 weeks since my last haircut and if I am going to a wedding I needed to get my ears lowered significantly.  I was able to walk right in and sit down in a chair manned by Cassandra.  She gave me a wonderful cut and shampoo in 20 minutes flat.  Then it was just a few doors down to visit the local Trader Joe's to stock up on some of our favorite wines and single malts.....it will be a while until we are close to at TJ's once again.

From there we moved south on Haven Ave. to the local Goodwill where neither of us found anything without which we could not live, then it was over my son's (Chris) office to pick up our mail, of which there was little.  We then spent about 30 minutes back in his warehouse going through my backpack stuff to pickup two Kelty down sleeping bags, my Kelty tent, a couple of inflatable sleeping pads, two Kelty internal frame backpacks, my Jetboil backpack stove, fuel, eating utensils, cookware, etc. in preparation for our planned trip to the bottom of the Grand Canyon in the near future.  I'm so glad I didn't get rid of this stuff!

Then it was on to a local tire store where I planned to get the two new tires I wrote about yesterday, but they didn't have my brand in stock, so they ordered them from one of their other stores, and we made an appointment for Saturday morning to have them installed.  Next it was across the parking lot to Home Depot where I stocked up on a few things I needed (a couple of drill bits, some electrician's tape, some more shrink wrap tubing, etc.).

Next we moved another mile down Foothill Blvd. to the local BevMo to pick up a few more adult beverages, then across the street to the local 'The Hat' for some of their world famous Pastrami Dip sandwiches, and onion rings......it has been a long, long time.......


.......TLE an I split on Hot Pastrami Dip, and the onion rings, and we still ended up being 'stuffed'!  Everyone who tells you about 'The Hat'  Pastrami Dips will tell you enough pastrami falls out of the sandwich while you are eating it to make another 'Hot Pastrami'....you could almost feed four people with one of them!

We had two more stops to make before we headed back to Chris and Rochelle's home.....COSTCO and TJ Maxx (TLE wanted to buy an extra set of sheets for our bed)....we were back home by 3:30 where I took a much needed nap.....shopping wears me out!

Around 5:20 we got back in the VW to drive down to Nick and Kate's home (used to be our home) to visit them and their children (Elijah, Charlise and Jolene), and while we were there Meredith (our oldest daughter) and Rod (Sharon's husband) dropped by with their son (Rod and Sharon's) Brayden.  None of the kids will be coming to the wedding so we wanted to get in some grand children time.

We were back at Chris and Rochelle's by 8:30 pm and settling in for the night......that may be an average day for someone on the workaday world, but for us that was a jam packed day, and we were tired.....but not tired enough to not watch a few more episodes of  'Mad Men'.....

Thanks for stopping by!
