This blog is a reflection of me. Those of you who know me know, I can be as serious and sensitive as I am silly and obnoxious. We lost a matriarch of our family this week, Tia Mafalda. She lived a long and full life filled with family and children, and grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was warm, kind, loving and left a lasting impression on all who knew her. I stumbled across this article today and I found it timely and more importantly comforting. I hope you do too.
So Dina and I had an amazing dinner with an old dear friend on the westside and gave them a ride to the airport #LAXTraffic. The banter here about #LATRAFFIC and #Truelove was funny to Dina and I, maybe you will enjoy it as well.
So since last week Dad Has been intrested in getting Corn beef , pastrami and matzo ball soup. We are at Brent’s In Northridge and the feast is coming to a screeching halt. We have quite a few leftovers so that’ll keep Dad busy for the next couple of days.
So I just got home from work, the week had highs and lows, roller coastery if you will and ended on a very high note. The hellcat needed some TLC which turned into a weeks worth of downtime, and that week was up around 5:30pm this afternoon, and there it was, in all of its Hellcat glory. Abstinence makes the heart grow fonder…just sayin’
I got home, and put on some Primus. Primus is a love it or hate it band, I am clearly the former. I am listening to Jerry was a Racecar Driver is on as I write this…dog will hunt!
However, I put on Sailing the Seas of Cheese because of the powerful song American Life, lyrics are short and can be found here. This puts a lot into perspective, I/We need to be very thankful because yesterday, today and tomorrow people are living this. Anyway, even if you don’t like Primus, think about reading it, you might find yourself more thankful for what you have, I did.
We went to Sushi by Jin tonight. An all you can eat sushi joint in the valley we like for the value. We swing by there every couple 3 months for a feast. On this trip, Dina decapitates the *Blue Man* sushi. There was some spicy sauce on top and Dina likes food with a mild kick at best. Tonight’s service was notably underwhelming due to a couple runners who were new and apparently uninterested or having a bad day. That said, everyone else was very nice as usual and this will not stop us from coming back. Enjoy
Dina and I have had a blast this summer racing the car. Hard to explain the amount of fun we have had so far. I am really grateful to have such an understanding with and with the super bonus that she is becoming the photographer. As fun as it looks!
Dina discovered a baby snake in Zion National park, in Utah. Dina saw it first and everyone walking on that path stopped in their tracks. This slithery baby snake added excitement to the hike. You know, just enough excitement…a small scream, then some whining, but no ambulance. That’s about as good as it gets.
