What a great trip to my son's this week end. Barb and me went over to visit him for the week end in LA. We were lucky enough to have it be the week end of the Rose Bowl Flea Market. As you can see we found some great treasures. I will have to say it was very OVER WHELMING also. We didn't even to begin to touch the surface of the place. Jay bought lots of steam punk items to create a piece of art, which was exciting for me cause he hasn't worked on his art for along time. I found the wonderful tool box in the back of the picture. No plans for it, just a fun find.
The day before we went to The Grove and the farmers market there. I don't think there wasn't a food you couldn't find there.
After the day at the flea market the real reason for the trip began. Jay needed a colonoscopy so his prep had to begin. We had a great time teasing him his Valentines days being spent with the great prep for the test.
Barb and I were lucky though, Jay's room mate Wayne took us out for Valentines Day....He took us to the PINK TACO.....It was wonderful. We had the best lobster enchilada's . And we topped it out with the best fried ice cream I had ever had in my life. Trust me I have tried lots of fried ice cream. Wayne was so sweet to be our Valentine. Jay is very lucky to have such a great friend and room mate.
The test today came with good news. He had a polyp but didn't look like the bad type. They took a bx for colitis. We should have the results in about a week.
Can hardly wait to go back for a visit and to go back to the wonder flea market.
Have a great week...

It is so fun to have a great studio space. I've been working on my son's 30th birthday present and looked up and saw this mess. Then I wondered am I the only one who makes a mess like this? It just seems to get away from you when your not looking. LOL.....But it's nice to have a play area that you can mess up just like when you were a kid...Will post some pictures when I have the present done.
By the way my sister Fran is doing great. Getting stronger every day. We went to dinner tonight and she even felt like eating something. It was great to see....
Well suppose I should get to bed. Long work day tomorrow and then back to my play room....
