LA Pride, Dad and Ink-N-Iron

LA Pride

Staple Center - LA Kings
LA Kings Celebration 6-16-14 Staple Center

I’m a Los Angeles native who loves her home town.  There are so many LA haters so I feel it is important for me to show my LA Pride.  Today the 2X Stanley Cup Champions, LA Kings had their victory parade in Downtown.  As I watched on TV, I noticed how very excited, happy and respectful the Kings fans were.   I felt a lot of pride that the LA public were out there supporting our team’s victory in a way that shows how great it is to be in Los Angeles.  Even on the night the Kings won the final game the fans did not go berserk or cause riots, etc.  There is a diverse cross section of different types of Los Angeles citizens who adore the Kings and they show it in a classy way.

To the rest of the USA, Canada and the world… you may not have thought this before, but LA IS a hockey town and a really great one 🙂 #LAKings #LAPride

Dad Celebrated

Dad says the won ton is terrific!

Yesterday was Father’s Day and I celebrated with my Dad by going out to brunch at a lovely Thai restaurant in Montebello.  My Dad is 92 years old and I am sooooo blessed that I have had the opportunity to celebrate with him all these years and I think for many more years to come, because my Dad is still in pretty good health.  He is exhibiting signs of poor short term memory and his sight and hearing are getting weaker, but he does enjoy a great meal and getting together with my lovely step mom, Fely and me.

Happy Father’s Day, everyday, Dad!

Ink-N-Iron

Last week I went to the Ink-N-Iron festival that was in Long Beach at the Queen Mary.  It isn’t the kind of festival that I would normally go to, but my friend Don Randi, whose biography I am co-writing, was booked to play keyboards with Rockabilly greats, Ray Campi and Danny B.Harvey, so I went.  On the same stage Wanda Jackson and Ray Rapid.

It was a great time and very interesting.  The people who attended the festival were of course fans and clients of tattoo artists.  There were many people there I saw with amazing tattoos.  But all that amazingness did not convince me to get a tattoo… I do not have any.  There were lots of vendors selling all kinds of artistically themed items.  But I do love music and there were great artists there to enjoy and Don Randi played with two of them, Ray Campi and Danny Harvey.  Then there was a car show, representing the iron of course.  Food was good although expensive.   Overall, I really enjoyed myself and was pleasantly surprised by the nice feel of the festival.

Here’s a photo gallery of that day.
