There is a place here in Redondo Beach that is my mother’s favorite. It has become ours, as well. The food tastes as good as this place looks.

In the midst of all the sadness, we have made this our place for lunch. It doesn’t hurt that it is so photogenic.

Now, just to raise my spirits, would you mind letting me know which of these is your favorite? I am having a hard time making up my mind. If you want, you can let me know why, but otherwise, a vote will be anonymous. Thank you.


Major storms! Big Sur Valley reported 2 inches this morning. I am in SoCal with my dying mother, but the news reports are pretty amazing about the snow in the Rockies, the Sierras, and the rain every where – my daughter made it across the Rockies last night, just in front of the snow storm, and will hopefully be here this afternoon in time to say good-bye to her grandmother.

Next break in the weather is Sunday, looks like. Be safe, all.
