Southern California

shoes shoes2

If you are wondering if Ringling Brothers Circus has started designing shoes, and I am featuring them today on The Association you would be wrong.

But if you are wondering what is the latest, coolest, hottest thing in footwear for young boys in Southern California right now….I am sad to say…YOU ARE LOOKING AT IT.

And yes, both of these were picked by my boys against my not-so-subtle gentle protests.

And when I could see I wasn’t making any progress I pulled out the totally sexist opinion “seriously pink? Are you prepared to get mocked at school?’

Jack replied… “Its the pink that makes them cool. You can’t understand because you are a mom

Oh no he didn’t.

Oh yes.

HE DID.

Yorba Linda Country Club, California   The funny thing about Southern California is while it is usually 90 degrees on Christmas it can very easily be cloudy and a cool 65 degrees on the first day of Summer vacation. Newscasters around here like to call it ‘June Gloom’. But it never stops my kids from [...]

Okay the suspense is killing me. Can anyone please tell me WHAT the top secret Christmas-tree shaped project is??? What could it be? One of Marie’s dolls? How about plans for another creepy brother-sister talk show come back? Maybe it is the book of Mormon as told by Father Osmond. Oh someone tell me!

AlbumTalk: Blame it on Cuba.

In an attempt to distance themselves from their Uncle Castro back in Cuba, the sisters added the ‘De-‘ to their last name when they came to America.

In my HEAD I know they are just made up stupidness printed at a factory in San Francisco, but part [...]

8: 47 PM ~ Newport Beach, California ‘ It was a long shot. Literarily. A photo taken on faith. It was all but totally dark, and I stood on the Newport pier next to the night fisherman setting up for the evening. As I watched them cast their lines with glowing lures to guide the [...]

His off season…

You may recall I saw Santa recently at a car show, and last week I ran into him in Newport. I wasn’t sure at first it was him, but the front of his shirt said ‘North Pole’ and the back? Well, as you can see…I am certain it was HIM.
