This is the story of our adventures -- every day and extraordinary; our dreams -- tiny and grand; our gardens -- ornamental and sustaining; this is the story of our journey.  We are a family of four living a mindful, simple life here in Los Angeles County.  We are green, conscious, and forward thinking.  We keep an eye on the past because some of the best things have already been done and bear repeating.  Walk and talk with us, have a glass of wine, taste a peach or a tomato, blow some bubbles and watch them drift up over the canyon ridge.  Enjoy!

Blonde Jokes

Today we drove to Westlake Village to pick up the Land Cruiser for the big CenAm journey. Gregg drove it home and the girls and I slowly meandered home in the Volvo, stopping for lunch and at a store to buy notebooks for my journal, finally driving Mullholland to Old Topanga, a pretty ride after all the rain. The girls were in a great mood and laughing and sharing stories in the back. At one point I heard Alex laugh and say, "Oh Greggie! You are the bean in a jelly bean!"

Then Alex said to me, "Mother, Greggie is putting the stickers [the checkout lady at the book store gave them stickers] over her eyes!" She turned to Gregorie and said, "I just love you Greggie! You make me laugh so much!"

Gregorie giggled and Alex said, "Oh, you are SUCH a blonde!"

I honestly don't know where she heard it. Gregg and I aren't "joke" people and we have no television. Maybe on the radio!
