So today is my birthday. I am staunchly thirty-something. (Let's just say that the seventies produced many amazing things: leisure suits, the Hustle, Shrinky-Dinks, and me.) We made our way through Zoccoli's sandwiches, Bargain Barn's finery (including the salmon/tangerine floor-length Chinese housecoat-I am so stylin'), and then we found the ocean, right where we left it, underneath the pier,
bumping against the sand outside the Dream Inn.....
We've had guests. My little sister Jessica just finished an Art History degree at Cal State Fullerton and was finally able to break out of Orange County (or the Orange Curtain, as some call it.) She's bound for Sydney, Australia, and we'll be seriously missing her. And counting our frequent flyer miles. So, here's to you, Jessica Jessica Dragonette, aka Mildred Pierce. Don't ask me why. It's our grandpa. He gave all of us really goofy nicknames....our brother Ben became Benjamin Bun from Wilmington. But Amy & Matt..? No idea.
(And thanks brrtha, for the pic!)
