February 6, 2010
Lots of rain yesterday and last night....thought we might wake up down on the highway or in the ocean this morning seeing all the mud that runs down these cliffs...

We drove to Venice Beach this morning and walked along the boardwalk....what a freak show...never seen anything like it. Lots of weirdos for sure...I saw guys wearing only american flag bikini bottoms with a choker on. Guys on rollerblades. An old weightlifter guy with bracelets like wonderwoman on and a ton of really strung out people, including a young girl laying on the middle of the road passed out cold. I still can not believe how many homeless people there are here. I guess in this climate it is a little easier.

We went out for a nice lunch and then Bill fit in a little paddle surf in Malibu, but unfortunatley I have not yet run into Matthew McConaghy...but I have been looking as he surfs in this area. I guess that isn't going to happen...

Women---are wearing boots, boots, boots, but the sad part is they are mostly flats....also cowboy boots are making a come back but you must tuck your pants in or wear them with dresses/short shorts or leggings. Also the big pointy 80s sunglasses are in...I wouldn't try either of these looks at home.....nobody is ready for it..
Guys --all look like Ferris Bueller skinny jeans, collars up and really bad glasses...

Hope you had a great weekend!


  1. Hi Deb

    This site says I have a message but it's not going through to my email. Apparently a glitch. So to let you know if the message is from you that I didn't get it. Hope you're having a great time!

  2. Hi Deb & Bill,
    Sonya wants to thank you both for the post cards. She enjoys checking out your blog to see what you guys are doing! She hopes to be back playing by the beginning of March for Regionals. She can straighten her elbow to 140 degrees now. I was talking to your Aunt. We use to work together at the Y. Small world!! We hope you are having a great time! I hope you are getting our comments.
    Sonya,Brad & Patti

  3. Hi Deb and Bill sounds like you guys are having a great time. Let us know if you run into Matthew

    Sheri, Tom and Girls

    Tom doesn't really care for Matthew but he would love to see any bathing beauty with no top. Ha Ha.

  4. Hi Deb,
    Just looked at the Paul Newman hand prints (and looked like Joanne Woodward next to his).
    He was my all time favourite film actor - ask me anything about him..
    You look great standing on Rodeo Drive - wow,what shopping could be done there if money was no object!
    Yes, lots of movie stars live in Malibu but you would probably never find them. Can't see Mel Gibson going to the hardware store..
