Welcome to Hollywood, what's your dream?
Okay, I finally have a few minutes to write about our short stint in So. Cal a couple of weeks ago. For the past couple of years one of the Christmas gifts I give my lover is a trip to L.A. We love getting away for a few days, away from work, away from children, away from the FFT. This year we stayed in a nice suite at the downtown Marriott and puttered around town in a convertible. On Friday night we had tickets to Riverdance at the Pantages Theater. We rode the Metro (just a few blocks from our hotel) over to Hollywood. That was very convenient. We really didn't know what to expect but we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Very good music, singing, and of course dancing. It was so nice to sleep in, get up and exercise. Marcella and I would exercise and then walk over to Starbucks for a late breakfast snack. One morning I got to swim about a mile in the pool. That was fun. We also visited Santa Monica beach and pier. By far the biggest highlight (especially for the wife) was the shopping on Melrose. Lots of fun shops. We really had a great time together and can't wait until next year.
