California Dreamin'

It was cold again here over the weekend, which means that the little shoots of flowers that were starting to peek out were shivering in the ground. Just as well that we didn't take the storm windows down.

Like these postcards and pamphlets we've found of sunny California :) Ahhh, Catalina Island...decades ago.

And the famous, S.S. Catalina...

Decisions, decisions. Where to go first?

Wow, the Hollywood Bowl looks impressive.

So, are you going to tell us who it is? I knew the CTA before it was the CTA & I don't recognize him. To me, it looks like Harry Carey in his younger days.... POPS"30"
