Paul started the day with another CT chest scan to try and figure out the bronchitis issue going on! Paul and the CT Scan Technician are worried that people will talk… We know each other quite well these days! She says “You again?” and Paul undresses (i.e. takes off his watch and puts away the iPhone). He was done by 8:50 AM and immediately headed for home so the days adventure could begin!
We are off to Pasadena to see the Rose Parade floats… Our first “journey” of the year. This year Joanna joined us making it special. Joanna is employed by the Rose Garden TeaRoom in at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens and has served us for several years. She is well known by Irene and Greg (both of which stayed home today and did not brave the cold!)
We departed at 9:00 AM and arrived just before 10:00 AM which was perfect as Joanna joined us within two minutes! Joanna is a Pasadena local.
The crowds were minimal early on so the walking was pretty easy. All in all the walking was easy and certainly no dust on the ground as it had rained a couple of days earlier.
After walking for several hours, we went to Old Town Pasadena and dined at Cafe Santorini which always is a wonderful experience. The Greek dining experience was outstanding.
After a delightful meal and a super visit with Joanna, we went home and on the way decided to stop at Patty’s Place. We visited the locals, exchanged serious words with Chuck, and then home for the evening.
Sue did the treadmill and we watched reruns of Cheers and Last Man Standing on TV. Netflix is such an outstanding deal… No commercials and bing watching is so very easy!
