Recent Adventures in Splurging


DSCN0862-The Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA

I was aboard the Queen Mary docked in Long Beach, California. I’m writing a novel set onboard in 1937 and I purchased several books, post card packets and other items to use in my research. I also treated myself to a beautiful white scarf in the couture shop on board and a lovely brooch in the Scottish store. A productive and fun spree.

Funny Sign


When I was in Burbank, California, I went to this donut shop twice. It’s called Donut Prince. They have the  freshest, best donuts I’ve ever tasted. They have a wall of photos in the place with lots of celebrities that have been there.  This sign is on the window.  The lawyer in me loves it.
