We played nine holes of golf but it was cold… The temperature was 62 but the wind was about 6-8 miles per hour and blew right through us. Charlotte, James, sue and Paul took a vote and the answer was nine holes only.
We did some Happy Hour with James and Charlotte and then Bunnaford joined us for a while. Great fun.
We headed for home and Sue did the treadmill while we watched some holiday movies. We watched the Hallmark Channel. Fantastic.

We headed to Old Ranch to play golf. James celebrated his 75th birthday with his family so we did not see him. We stopped after fourteen holes as it was too cold.

We slept late…. Something new for us! We went to Downtown Disney and had kunch at Catal and then went into Disneyland and met up with our son Joe and his beautiful family. We went into the Star Trek exhibits and then we rode the train all the way around the park.
The kids stayed for a while but we headed to Malarkey’s.
We met up with Greg and Irene at Malarkey’s and laughed and giggled for a couple of hours before going home to the treadmill and the TV.
We are still dragging bit after this weekend.

We got up and packed to head for home. We decided to go to Temecula and taste some wine before going home. Colleen joined Robin & Bob and Pete & Lisa for the adventure.
We stopped at Falkner Winery and had lunch at Pinnacle. Everyone went their own way afterwords. We headed for Thornton and Europa before heading for home. We then decided to drop by Old Ranch for a glass of wine before going home. The Cathey’s dropped in along with Bunnaford.
When we got home, we were ready to crash! We were in bed by 11:00.

We got up and headed to The Claim Jumper with Colleen, Mitch and Luisa. Great time and lots of fun. We went back to the hotel and got ready to go to the venue and assist in setting things up. It was so well organized that all we did was to take pictures!
The wedding went wonderfully and we all had a great time.
After the reception we headed back to the hotel and continued to celebrate.

We did some chores and got ourselves packed up for the “The Wedding Weekend”. Our second oldest grandson is getting married Saturday at Green Mountain Ranch in Lytle Creek. We headed out about 11:30 so as to arrive at 3:00 for a rehearsal. We did not know that we were in the activities so we have to practice walking down the aisle. Being grandparents has its perks!
The reception was adjacent to the wedding area.
The venue did a great job of having everything ready.
After the practice, we headed back to the hotel for some drinks before going to “”The Old Spaghetti Factory for the rehearsal dinner.
Mitch, Luisa, Penny, and Don enjoying dinner and swapping stories.
They were having a great time enjoying all the family and friends.
It’s going to be a long night. We headed back to the hotel and proceeded to close the bar1 No worries, the bar closed at 11:00!

Paul started the day by taking the Avalon for its scheduled maintenance. It was supposed to be one hour and it turned out to be three hours. After returning home and eating, Sue did the treadmill and Paul worked in the website.
We mailed out the invites to the New Years Eve party to 30+ people. It’s going to be fun!
We got cleaned up and headed to the Phoenix Club for the last time this year! Great fun with friends a loads of chocolate cake! Connor joined us making it a special evening.

We played golf and it was quite delightful. The day was just right. We did some Happy Hour with JR & Karen before heading for home to change and get ready to go to the Orange County Performing Arts Center to see “42nd Street”.
Based on the novel by Bradford Ropes and the subsequent 1933 Hollywood film adaptation, the show focuses on the efforts of famed dictatorial Great White Way director Julian Marsh to mount a successful stage production of a musical extravaganza at the height of the Great Depression.
Afterwards we headed for Jan’s home (our dear friend from various dancing venues) and visited with her until midnight. We had a load of fun sharing stories from our childhood…. Dinosaurs and everything!
We got home about 12:20 and crashed!

We are saying a prayer today. Cousin Tom is getting a pacemaker installed at 8:00. It should be no big deal but he is Paul’s age so that is always a consideration!
No walking this am, too cold and we have a golf game at 10:52.
We had breakfast with Little Lisa and the Kuhn’s at Old Ranch before playing nine holes of golf. James played with us but had to leave early because of a heater problem at home. We decided to do nine holes also and then head home to do the treadmill and get ready to go dancing with the Rondeliers. Join the fun.
We had a fantastic time but were saddened by the terrorist attacks in Paris.

Paul did the morning walk around the hood taking about an hour and 20 minutes to make the rounds. Join the fun!
After the walk, we got cleaned up and headed to Preveza Restaurant in Los Alamitos to catch up with Donna Westermann and Jery McGinty. Great fun with our work (mostly retired) friends!
We got a few minutes at home before heading to Downey to celebrate George Lee’s retirement… Robin and Alice joined us.
George was a finance guy in the IT Department at Rockwell when we first met him. Just an all around neat guy. we have kept touch over the years and plan to keep doing so. Alice was Sue’s secretary for a long time and we know her from back in the 1980’s
After the visit, we headed to the Phoenix Club to dance until about 10pm. Connor knows our friends and we believe he enjoys seeing “old folks” having fun! We are trying to get him up and dancing… Our goal for next year!
The club always reserves us a table as we always have cast of 1000’s joining us! Great fun!
Mike snapped one of us reviewing Zack’s bachelor party pictures.
It’s OK, the boys went up into the mountains shooting and Zack tied one on. Grandma spent two weeks with Jon and Zachary on a cruise so this little adventure was nothing!
By the time we got home we were pooped and crashed about 11:45…. Count not even make it to midnight!

We did our morning chores and decided to have lunch at the Himalayan Grill which is always delightful. We then went to Costco but after driving around the parking lot we gave up and went to Old Ranch for a glass of wine. To our surprise, Linda showed up and then at 4:30 James and Bunny. We visited for a while before going home.
We got a text message with the latest picture on Calin. Looking good!
Once home, we did the treadmill and watched TV.

We woke up this morning at 6:15 and it was 47 degrees outside. Paul kicked on the heater to take the chill off before starting to move. When it hits 55-60, Paul will set out on his walk! Join the walk in the leaves. It got to be 67 as a high today and we expect a 72 as the high tomorrow… Fall is in the air!
We worked around the house and went to the nursery to get some planting mix as Paul got 20 three year old asparagus plants (he could not wait two more years for the small ones to be ready). We planted the asparagus, marked them and now await spring to be rewarded with fresh asparagus every morning a for about two months!
Our microwave went on the fritz yesterday so we have a guy come by and replace the door interlock switches… We are back in business. PAul gave it a try but it was cheaper to have someone do it than spend two weeks chasing specialized parts down!
We were getting cabin fever so we headed to Malarkey’s to watch the sunset and then to Patty’s Place for a cocktail.
We got a great picture of how we deal with gun control! Pictures is our son and two grandsons on a trip to use their weapons! They are looking good!
We came home to watch NCIS, the Republican Debate and a little bit of the news. Nice to see how professional journalists asks questions instead of the liberal socialist dirt bags at NBC do it.

Based upon the weather report we decided to go to the movies today. The rain never showed up except for a three minute dribble.
We headed to Bella Terra and had lunch at Kabuki. We saw 007 Spectre in the super high definition theater.
After the show we went to Malarkey’s for our Monday afternoon get together. We watched the sunset at 5:51 and it was again spectacular. There was lots of discussion on the sunset around the table!
After the happy hour we went home to do the treadmill and watch “North By Northwest”.

“If I am walking with two other men, each of them will serve as my teacher. I will pick out the good points of the one and imitate them, and the bad points of the other and correct them in myself.” – Confucius
We then had a great breakfast… Sue made Paul a “chili size” for brunch! It was terrific! We then did the treadmill and Paul put the finishing touches on Sandy and Bobs vacation site.
Afterwords we headed to Old Ranch for our monthly dinner dance! Great fun, we got home about 9:30 and watched an NCIS before crashing!

We did some chores and got ready to go to the theater. We headed for Seasons 52 for lunch before the play.
The play today was at the South Coast Repertory which was featuring “Abundance”. Super production and had us laughing and crying.
1860. A stagecoach pulls into a station in the middle of the Wyoming Territory. Off step two mail-order brides, one innocent and wide-eyed, the other spunky and assertive. For the next quarter of a century, they struggle with the incongruities of fate while clinging to their dreams in a fierce and funny story set in a wild west that would have daunted even Thelma and Louise.
We took Greg home and then headed to Garden Grove to go dancing with the gang! Great fun!

It’s starting to look like fall finally… We turned on the heater for the first time this year!
We did some errands and then headed to Chapter One in Santa Ana for lunch! It is an eclectic restaurant in the artists area of Santa Ana near Main Street.
After lunch we went to the Bowers to see “Red – The Color That Changed The World”. It was a n interesting display of how little bugs getting squashed could have had such an effect on the world!
We then headed for home to do the treadmill before going to the Phoenix Club to dance the night away.

Paul did a short walk before coming home and getting ready to play a round of golf! We played nine holes but the back nine was so tied up, we played the first seven again! We had a drink and then as we were about to leave, here comes James and Linda.
We decided to go to Patty’s Place for dinner with a 5:30 dinner reservation. Paul did himself in with a Patty Burger… Thing must have weighed ten pounds! We left about 7:00 to go home!
We headed for home to watch a movie before crashing for the day!

Off to golf!

The day started with some garden work. We are getting ready for the winter garden ad the last of summer must go!
We played golf with James today and it was “cold”… OK, it was 68 degrees but after the past month of hot weather, we almost froze!
The beauty on the course made up for the questionable hits.
The clouds were like giant snowballs in the sky!
Paul gets happy as we approach the 19th hole!
We did some happy hour with James and then we stayed around for soup and salad before going home.
At home we watched a movie and some TV before crashing!!

Paul took an hour long walk… Interesting to see how many people are “un-decorating” for Halloween”. Join the walk!
We put away Halloween decorations and got cleaned up before heading to the Apple store. Sue decided that Paul needed a laptop so he would stay awake when she did the treadmill!
While at the shopping center we got the latest Reyn Spooner Christmas shirt and then visited the “doggie store”.
Then we were off to Cucina Enotica for some infusions! Paul took advantage of the menu addition – Large Meatballs – Simply delicious food.
From there we headed to Malarkey’s for Monday Evening Happy Hour with Greg and Irene!
We then headed for home and Sue did the treadmill.

The time has changed and it is dark at 6:00pm… We want our sun back! Today we relaxed a bit from the Halloween celebrations!
We went back to Cerritos Performing Arts Center with the Branders to see The Bronx Wanderers. Again, only about 30% sold out but what a show! It took all of our willpower to keep from jumping up and dancing in the aisle way!
After dinner we went to the Elephant Bar and Grill and met up with Amy, Joe, Charlie and Alex. Great fun and Leon and Marcia joined us making it even more special! When we arrived the outside lights were not on because of the time change so we ran in and asked the manager to “turn in the lights” otherwise Leon and Marcia would never fine it… We almost missed it!
We had a nice meal and got time to visit before the holiday season really begins in earnest!
We headed for home and watched some TV while Sue did the treadmill!

Paul did the last walk of the month. No more ghosts and goblins for a while.
Sue went for the monthly haircut and then we went to Thailusion in Los Alamitos. Great place to dine on Thai food. The atmosphere is wonderful! We met up wit some olf work friends for years and years ago!
Then back to work… Sue hit the treadmill and Paul did some yard cleanup!
Now the fun starts! Off to the Santa Ana Elks for the Annual Halloween Ball. We had a fantastic time dancing to Jerry Benton and visiting our friends who we have not seen in days!
The gang was here although we really missed the Roberts and Michael! Next year for sure.

We had breakfast at Old Ranch although it was a challenge with no cottage cheese available. We played with James and two others but finally decided to call it quits at the turn… Too many people were out enjoying the day!
We did some Happy Hour before heading home to get ready for dinner at the Arte Cafe with the Branders.
We went to the Cerritos Performing Arts Center with is close to the Arte Cafe to see Steve Lippa. Steve is a Sinatra look/sound alike. The theater was only about 30% sold perhaps because f the World Series but the show was magnificent!
“From the moment Steve Lippia starts singing … you would swear that Frank Sinatra has been resurrected.” – New York Daily News
It’s a celebration of the life and timeless music of Frank Sinatra as Steve Lippia takes audiences on a musical journey from Ol’ Blue Eyes’ early crooning days to the Sands in Las Vegas and his epic concert at Madison Square Garden. Lippia performs the legend’s biggest hits, including I’ve Got You Under My Skin, The Lady Is a Tramp, My Way, and The Best Is Yet to Come.

Paul did his hour walk and took more Halloween pictures. Join the fun!
After getting home we were off and running. We went to Downtown Disney for breakfast at Catal. The meal was excellent and the Schramsberg Champagne topped off a terrific breakfast!
Then we went to get Sue’s golf clubs regripped, to the shopping center to get glasses adjusted, went to Baby’s R’Us to get a gift certificate, back to the golf shop to pick up the clubs, then to El Dorado Golf Course to deliver Tim’s anniversary present and finally to AAA to transfer our truck. Wow! Glad that is done!
We then headed to Phoenix Club and danced. Connor joined us this evening which is always nice!

Paul took a walk… Only an hour because we had to go to the movies. Join him!
We went to see “Bridge Of Spies” which was excellent albeit a little slow… Perhaps because they wanted to tell the audience how slow the negotiation process really is!
We dined at Kabuki before the movie as they now have several vegetarian selections. Sue took Paul there so he could have sushi but Paul found a “Sea Food Hibachi” which was sea food served on a very hot plate of onions and mushrooms! Outstanding!
While awaiting our meal to arrive, Paul texted Dominic (a friend who left Downtown Disney and the Patina Group) to find out where he was working now… AMAZING! Dominic was about 500 feet from us working as the manager of the Buca de Beppo! After the movie we went to see him and have a drink!
From there we headed home to change clothers and get ready for the Orange Country Reperatory Theater to see “Vietgone”. We took Greg with us and had a drink at the hotel before the theater. Great play albeit a little rasty in the language department.
An all-American love story about two very new Americans. It’s 1975, and Saigon has fallen. He lost his wife. She lost her fiancé. But now in a new land, they just might find each other. Using his uniquely infectious style The New York Times calls “culturally savvy comedy”—and skipping back and forth from the dramatic evacuation of Saigon to the here and now—playwright Qui Nguyen gets up close and personal to tell the story that led to the creation of…Qui Nguyen.
On the way home Paul spotted something strange in the sky. It looked like a firework but that evening he found out that southland sky watchers will likely be staying up late tonight and tomorrow night in hopes of getting a glimpse of the Orionid meteor shower, with Los Angeles-area skies expected to be mostly clear for the aerial spectacle.
The Orionid shower actually began Oct. 2 and will continue through Nov. 7, but tonight and tomorrow night are considered the peak nights for viewing, according to officials at the Griffith Observatory.
The best viewing times will be after “moonset” at 12:31 a.m., continuing until dawn at 5:49 a.m.
Skygazers could see as many as 20 meteors per hour as they stream out of their “radiant point” in the club of the constellation Orion the Hunter.
We came home and watch NCIS before crashing!

Paul did a walk around Rossmoor this morning…. One hour forty-five minutes! Almost 700 calories gone! That means 1/5th of a pound! Any amount helps! Excellent exercise. Join the walk!
We did our chores… Bank, cleaners, market…. boring stuff! The market did not have enough pumpkins for our carving activities on Sunday so we went to the local “pumpkin patch”.
We got some help pulling the wagon and loading it into the van! $160 worth of pumpkins ought to keep the kids and grand kids busy!
Malarkey’s is just around the corner so off we went to meet up with Greg and Irene!
The sun was beginning to set but it looked so black and white then all of a sudden….
…bang! The sun broke out in bright orange and reds! Amazing! We headed home so Sue could do the treadmill and we watched a little TV before crashing!

Psul took another walk this morning in preparation for playing golf. Enjoy the walk.
We played fourteen with James… The humidity was just too high and Paul woosed out!
We did Happy Hour for a while and Sue suggested we go to Patty’s Place for dinner and a drink! We sat down and a lady across the bar kept looking at us and finally said “I know you!” It was Karen Holman who used to work with us and then she went to Virginia for a few years before coming home! We enjoyed catching up and Paul enjoyed some lamb chops!
We headed home at watched two movies before crashing. We are doing something different tomorrow.

We then went to O’Malleys on Main Street in Seal beach to kill time and have a glass of wine… or two! This was our pre-Happy Hour activity!

We worked around the house most of the morning. We departed for the theater at 11:00 We headed to Season’s 52 in Costa Mesa to have lunch with Bob and Donna… That means loads of giggles. We have 12:00 reservations so we had plenty of time to laugh!
We crossed the street to South Coast Repertory (SCR) to see “One Man, Two Guvnors”.
Summary: Gleeful critics have cheered from London (“deliriously daft and diabolically joke-stuffed”— Independent) to New York (“splendidly silly”—The New York Times) over this delicious farce set in swinging ’60s Brighton. Francis, a failed washboard player with an insatiable appetite, finds himself in the employ of both Roscoe, who is really his own twin sister (in disguise), and Stanley, a well-bred twit (who actually killed the real Roscoe). And that’s only the beginning! In this adaptation of The Servant of Two Masters, food flies, pants drop and madness abounds, to the tunes of a live band (minus its washboard).
After the play we all went to Leatherby’s for a drink and appetizers. They… Homeward to do to treadmill!

Paul did a short walk and then we got ready to depart at 10:00 for Claremont to visit the Candlelight Dinner Theater to see Sentimental Journey. Brian and Jan joined us for the adventure. The Candlelight Pavilion opened its doors in October 1985 with its premiere Jubilee. Now, 30 years later, we were invited to attend the 30th Anniversary Celebration: A Sentimental Journey. We dressed to the nines (perhaps 7 and 3/4) and danced the afternoon away to the music of the 1930’s and 1940’s as the Candlelight Pavilion was transformed into a ballroom complete with a live orchestra; reminiscent of the Big Band era supper clubs.
After the show we headed home and then to Whittier to celebrate Frank’s 83th birthday! Loads of fun at the Klix household! Then… of course, dancing at the GG Elks with the gang!

Paul went walking and was on the lookout for spooky things! Join the walk!
We did chores around the house and Sue did the treadmill! Around 4:00 we started getting cleaned up so we could join the Ward’s in celebrating Shaun’s birthday! Great fun! We departed the party a little early as we had to meet up with everyone at the Phoenix Club!

The Finch’s joined us for a day trip to Los Angeles.
We went to Los Angeles Farmer’s Market and dined at Monsieur Marceau Restaurant. The Farmers Market was not too busy today and it was easy to wlak around and see the sights.
After a super meal we made the trek to Griffith Park and the Griffith Observatory!
After leaving we went VFR to Old Ranch and enjoyed a couple of drinks on the patio. After Brian and Jan departed, Sue headed for the treadmill and ran for two hours!

We worked around the house. Sue did invitations to one of our dance clubs and then bills! Paul hit the yards cleaning up the back yard and the attacking the kumquat tree out front! At 70+ years old he ought to know better but the tree needed trimming so…. In the afternoon we watched a movie while the Energizer Bunny did 90 minutes on the treadmill!
Then time for fun! Off to Malarkey’s to visit with Irene, Greg and we were surprised by Wally and Ghislaine! Brian and Jan also joined us for and evening of giggles!
