The West Jet attendants, upon our landing in Los Angeles, took the lions share of credit for the fifteen minute ahead of schedule flying time with a footnote of a compliment, that included the pilots and engineer, and of course the secret servicing Air Marshall with his sniffer dog curled up under My seat.
Down here in LA where the population is close to eleven million, and without a single highway toll or Shadow Toll .... to be seen.... Highways are five lanes wide in each direction. I saw one CHiP yesterday writing a ticket. HOV lanes are empty, except for the vehicle I'm in and I can see another vehicle about twelve blocks ahead.
Yesterday I went to a place where $25 would buy a customer two sheets of Russian Birch Plywood, 5' X 5'. Great for cabinet makers, with lots left over for other projects. Pacific Western Wood Products
Then there's a look alike of Metro Vancouver's Lee Valley Tools, and outfit Rockler, woodworking and hardware since 1954. I've got their catalog, and bringing it home to compare to LVT.
Here I am with so many places to go, places to see, like the Tar Pits, but fate intervened, just now and back in '54. Can't he remember what happened in '54, oh yeah, traffic jam trying to get to see a Golf game and involving some guy called Bob Hope.
I was told that Alberta's got something much better and bigger, its called the Tar Sands and it will be coming to British Columbia via Enbridge, FREE OF CHARGE, for the next 990 years.
I'm missing my Monday and Friday morning two hours workout at Harry Jerome Rec Centre, but just watching one of my off-springs doing her bi-weekly dance work-out at a place called Hama's Dance Center on Moorpark Street, Studio City, left me short of breath. I've seen plenty of local shows at the Vancouver Stanley Alliance Theatre, Theatre Under the Stars, and Queen Elizabeth Theatre (La Traviata) , but today I got to see a different kind of show, a solid work-out lasting an hour an a half at the Hama's Dance Center, by professionals.
Michael Owens was the "teacher". Phil LaDuca was just one of the professional "students" in a class of fourteen. LaDuca I've heard of before, many times, from my daughter, because of the character shoes she has purchased over the years.
LaDuca shoes, she says: "they feel like they're part of your feet".
The Gamble House tour, I had last year, went back today to take a closer look at their book store contents which was the two car garage for the homeowners. Gamble, as in "Proctor and Gamble", almost had their house torn down, but was saved. The architects were Greene and Greene.
