In early January, I traveled to California with my sister. We stayed in Pasadena and I drove to L.A. to get some video and visit the Cannabis Cafe (In another Post). My sister was there for a Flower Arranging Convention and I went for fun.
I had a good time at the Cannabis Cafe while in L.A. You’ll have to read about it in another of my Post. I did get some good footage at the Hollywood Chinese Theater, you know, where all the Stars leave the cement impressions in the concrete. My video is on my YouTube Channel. www.SpiderMichaels.com
While in Pasadena, I took walks to see the city. On one walk, I went to Old Town Pasadena. On the way, I came across an antiques shop with several different sellers in one big building.
I found this cool box from India. I think I paid about $30 for it, but well worth it for a nice antique. Here’s the box I bought.
The inside is wood, which is nice.
I use it for my desk cigarette case and it works fine. I love my purchase. And it adds to the character of my desk.
On the way back from Old Town Pasadena, I stopped by Victoria’s Secret and bought my sister and neighbor, Palmy, a bottle of scented lotion. It smells really good. I’m sure they like it.
When I was in the antique store, I saw a few interesting things. These old pocket watches were cool. I had one as a child and always felt like I was in a Western Movie when I used it, lol.
Steven Spielberg started his career as a child with a camera like this one.
Back in the day, this Polaroid camera was a big hit.
Believe it or not, but there are young adults out there that wouldn’t know how to use this phone.
One day, my sister and I went on the tour of Paramount Pictures. It was fun and we learned some interesting facts about the Golden Days of Old Hollywood.
I got a pic in front of Bumblebee from the Transformers movies.
All in all, I had a good time back in California. Not like the time I was almost arrested (see another Post – Arrested in California).
I’m headed to NYC next so stay tuned for that Post.
Be safe and have a chill day.
