There is a rule at my house about killing spiders. Since I often live with a cat or cats, the rule is you may only intentionally kill a spider if you eat it. I like my house rules to apply to everyone.

That's a good rule. Hopefully Stirling hasn't had to eat many spiders!

Fixin' to go over to my daughter's to feed their cat and dogs, and spend a little time with them. Daughter, SIL, and grandson are on vacation this week, having the time of their life. Major league baseball, Universal Studios, shopping, going to the beach, whale watching, and this evening is an ocean sunset cruise.

I tried to go shopping for groceries and wine. There was a major gas leak and traffic was rerouted. It was a mess. The grocery store and the liquor store were closed. I guess they were too close to the leak.

We're on our way out to a talk by one of my fellow master gardeners, on hops. He brews his own beer.

They live in California and went to Florida to see Universal Studios and other sites that are just in their backyard? Don't tell me they also are going to Disney World when they have Disney Land right at home. Disney World is so, so pricey. You need to own the BOA to go there.

Reminds me of a fare that Pirate had in his cab once. They were going to the Falcon Pier to catch their cruise boat. They were going to catch the cruise to Canada on the east coast. Where were they from? You guessed it. Western Canada. Pirate has never gotten over that one.

What make think they went to Florida? There's a Universal Studio in Cal. There's an ocean with sunsets. There are whales.

The West Coast of Canada is gorgeous, but so is the East coast, in a completely different way. There is also a whole lot more coast on the east side of Canada than on the west side.

That's true in the United States, too. The climates are different, the landscape is different, the history is different, etc. DH and I once visited my sister in Temecula, then drove up the Pacific Coast Highway to my dad's in Salinas. The coastline there is nothing like the East Coast coastline. The mountain cliffs meeting with the ocean are spectacular.

What's to get over?

Yes, Addie, like Taxy said, my daughter and family are enjoying all those fun activities here in SoCal. They're staying at my older daughters in Valencia, that's less than a 2 hr. drive from here.

Universal Studios is in Hollywood, a 1/2 hr. drive further south. Anaheim Stadium is another 1/2 hour further. The beach is right there too, so basically, it's all in pretty close proximity.

It's been 'active' at my daughter's house. 4 little boys having a blast together, ages 2, 4, 5, and 6.


And yes, GG, the Pacific Coast Highway is breathtaking! All of our coastlines in North America have something beautiful about them to offer.

You both failed to notice the winking eye. It was said tongue in cheek.
