L.A., Baby!

(Los Angeles)-It's been a wacky travel day. I flew from Laredo to Houston to L.A., while the wife and son flew from Shreveport to Atlanta to L.A. The flights were without incident. In fact, mine arrived a little early.
We are all exhausted, of course, and trying to adjust to a Pacific Time Zone schedule, which isn't so easy. I had to see the Pacific Ocean, which is something that doesn't happen very often for me. So, we stopped by Venice Beach to smell the salt air and watch the Californians go by. This isn't a vacation, really. We're here to look over a handful of California colleges. The son has a notion he wants to go west when the time comes in about a year. We'll see how that goes. This is an enormous decision. It's a little stressful.
I'm also looking forward to L.A. traffic. Yep. I have to find my way around southern California on a Monday morning. Not that it will help, but I've already learned a little of the language. Today, I've been on "The Five," "the Four-Oh-five" and the Santa Monica Freeway, not to mention the Pacific Coast Highway.
To let you know how things are going, I'll have my people get in touch with your people.

Oh, you're in yet another neck of my woods.

I do miss LA, there is much cool here, if you look hard enough.

Might I suggest Diddy Reese cookies in Westwood Blvd. They're just a few short steps off the UCLA campus, and they're just about the cheapest/best cookies you'll find.

I may race you to the Faroe Islands. We will be trying to see our daughter today. She, coincidentally, is here.
Maybe I'll buy her some cookies.
