A DAY IN LA WITH LUCY

Dec 9, 2013by tracey Comments

I did not call anybody.   I just want everyone to know that.  If I didn’t call you it is because I didn’t call a soul.  We made a brief trip to LA and took Lucy as we have been away more than usual this autumn.  Normally we go away together once or twice.  We then do our business trips alone. But this fall we have been away together more than usual.  So when Glenn had to take a quick trip to LA and I had one meeting there, we decided to take Lucy with us.

This was not a sights and museum, educational trip. It was boys, hair and make-up. Well, OK, no boys. it was hair make-up. eating and some stores. Then we came home. The End.

I swear this was our first stop. They apparently only them in Dubai, The Emirates and LA. Who knew?

It did not seem that special to me. We waited outside until they opened. But it was her trip. She has schlepped through plenty of Mosques.

When in Rome! We ordered one Hollywood milkshake. We each took one sip. It was awful.

This has nothing to do with anything other than it was a sign I liked on Hollywood Blvd.

He is known for his primer. In fact his motto is "Not to prime is a crime."

Then lunch. My favorite has turned into her favorite. La Scala. This is fried mozzarella. I was busy Tweeting about Nelson Mandela when it arrived. So it looks a little eaten.

For those of you who may not have known this - onsies are all the rage. Yes, those onsies. Like babies wear, feet are preferred. But not if you want to wear heels with them. I am not making this up.
