I LOVE waking up and having it pour outside! Maybe it will even wash the car for us, as the rain we had the other day was the typical AZ rain that just stirs the dust around on the car and makes it look worse than it did BEFORE the rain. The only problem with rain is it brings humidity and that reeks havoc with my fibromyalgia. When I took that first step out of bed this morning, I thought I was stepping on nails! My whole right leg was killing me, starting with that "fiery" feeling in my foot all the up to my thigh. That nerve involvement is getting worse in that leg, I can feel it everyday. And no matter how many neurontin I take now, it doesn't really help. I'm on the maxed out dose, I think. I've never tried Lyrica, wonder if that would help? If anyone of you has tried Lyrica, let me know what it does for you. You see the ads on TV all the time how it helps, but those are just ads. I need REAL advice! :0)
OK...here's another episode of "Down Memory Lane." I remember when my folks first came to AZ, they were really excited (as was I) to visit California. We went to San Diego first (which I already profiled in a past post) and then moved up the coast to Los Angeles. My dad has a thing for cemeteries, so naturally, we had to stop at Forest Lawn, outside of Hollywood, I think it was. Speaking of Hollywood, poor Mom was driving down the 101 at top speed to keep up with the other drivers and I kept getting blurred pictures of the Hollywood sign. So she must have driven down that about 4 times and I never did get a picture of it! How frustrating! I did get lots of other good photos, though, I 'd like to share with you.
Somehow, Mom got Dad back into the car, even though we never did find Marilyn Monroe. Dad was almost positive she was buried in Forest Lawn cemetery. Oh, well. We did find a lot of celebrities we didn't expect to find, so I think it was a fantastic trip. Now we are in our air conditioned rental car, heading back to the motel. Tomorrow we head back to Yuma. Boy, was that a fun birthday!! One I'll never forget, that's for sure.
Thank you, Mom and Dad for an excellent 24th birthday party (June 24, 1994). I love you both dearly!!
Thank YOU, folks, for coming along with down memory lane and my birthday bash "Dad style." Which that always includes a cemetery or two! We later found out that Marilyn wasn't even buried at that cemetery! I forget where she actually is buried at, but it isn't Forest Lawn that we were at!!
Hope you all have a great Wednesday and be sure to go blog hoppin' with linky down below. Just add your site, "follow" with Google Friends the 1st slot (which is the hostess) and then whichever site appeals to you. It is so much fun, don't miss out on it!! Every day I'll have a different linky that corresponds with the day of the week it is.
Until next post,
