It's B.'s B-Day Today! Yay!

Someone has a big birthday today...and it's NOT Tallulah Mae (but she does look festive in her party hat!).

Happiest of happy birthdays, sweet B. {And many moooorrrre!}

Road Side Treasures

 Ah, the allure of um, "interesting" plaster "statues." We saw people buying, too (we'd stopped to use the bathroom).
 
 
 Ummm...okaaay...
 Also: a sheep playing hide-and-seek...
...and homemade menudo (is there any other kind?) made daily--so if you have a hangover seven days a week, you're covered!

Bird Silhouette

Hawkeye...

And here is a video you MUST MUST MUST see (there is sound, which is part of the experience). It's a video about birds of paradise in New Guinea. It is so so amazing; I have to confess that it made me teary-eyed, knowing that there is such wonder in the world (I know, I'm weird!). Here it is...prepare to be amazed:   http://www.birdsofparadiseproject.org/

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

"Leave me alone, won't you? I'm stuffed with turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, and pie, lots and lots of pie. And coffee. I must loosen my top button and sleep it off." (Oh, that's not Tallulah Mae speaking--that's ME [minus the turkey part]).

Turkey and Friend

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all! I'm grateful for, well, just everything in my life. I'm truly lucky. And I count all of you, my bloggy friends, amongst what I'm grateful for...thanks for stopping by and leaving such marvelous comments!

A challenge for my oh-so-clever blog peeps: we need a caption for this photo, stat! Leave your suggestion in the comments...

Don't Stop

Remember this? Here's another one, in a completely different part of town...I love them!

Apparently the guy (love that it's a guy) doing this has been told to stop (no pun intended). You can read about it here.

Line-Up

I love how they space themselves...how do they know how much space to leave?

Sky on Fire

Otherworldly...see the jet flying into it at upper right? What must the view have been from up there?

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

"I love getting that extra hour of sleep due to the time change--that takes me up to 22 and a half a day!" proclaims Tallulah Mae.

It's a Happy Place

 It's George's Wonderful World of Cakes! (Actually, apparently it isn't so happy--according to Yelp, it has closed.)
 But the signs live on, and they are fab!

Muffler Man Goodness

 A Muffler Man! It's the only one in this area, and I finally got to see it. We've seen quite a few others in the L.A. area, including the fabulous one-and-only Chicken Boy.
 
He's dreamy, isn't he?

V.O.T.E.!!!! (Woof Woof)

For all of you in the U.S., Tallulah Mae says: "Go vote! And then bring me a latte, please."

If you aren't in the U.S., you don't get to vote today, but you COULD still FedEx her a coffee, if you'd like. She won't care whether or not it's hot.

Tree Art

 Check out this owl: it looks as if someone drew it, yes?
In fact, it is just a random pattern on a eucalyptus tree trunk. Cool!

(I guess we can see now how folks can see Elvis/the Virgin Mary/Jesus on a tortilla/piece of toast/wall...)

Random Heart, Part Whatever

Another heart..this is actually a rock embedded in a path...
