Busy, busy, busy!

We had a full day in Las Angeles yesterday, picking up Judy’s Brother, Howard and his Wife Terri at LAX.   We left LAX and headed to Hollywood, as we had tickets that Howard arranged for to get into see the taping of the Jay Leno Show!  It was a blast.  We enjoyed.

After Jay was finished up, we headed over to catch a glimpse of the famous Hollywood Sign!  It is harder to get a good look at than you would think, but we did see it!  Next we were off for DHS!

Here we are fresh off Air Canada at LAX!


Below we are enjoying the nice temperatures outside NBC in Burbank!


After searching for the Hollywood Sign, we got hungry and Howard and Terri treated us to dinner at the Elephant Bar on the way home from LA.


Yes, they have an  Elephant!


We took in the College of the Desert today, and low and behold ran into Bloggers Trent and Teresa from Sask.  Great to meet them!  You can follow them at Trent and Teresa  Great to meet Fellow Canadians on the Road!  Just as I met Trent, he had just bought a hat, that might look a little like mine! 


After we left COD, we took a trip downtown Palm Springs, and found some classic cars!  Howard and Terri are “Car People” so they were right in their element!   We had a blast and also took in the Palm Springs Cruise Night!  Howard found this cool VW Van below, it was mint!


Below is a cool 1949 Wiley's Jeepster we found… it was neat!


Howard and Terri own a 1915 Ford Model T, and enjoyed the old cars at cruise night!


Ya, the cactus plants are in bloom!


This tricked out Truck at the show, actually sat on the ground!  Weird!


Lots of people enjoyed the car show… it was a nice night!


Till tomorrow…

  2. Looks like a great time in Palm Springs...and great weather. How fun to get to see the Leno Show in the making.

  3. We were so happy to meet you, John and Judy !!
    Wow, you have had a very busy time !!
    Sorry you couldn't join us for supper, but we realize your family is here visiting.
    Hope to see you again before we leave.
    Take care ... TnT

  4. Found you thru TnT's blog, nice to run into fellow bloggers, so far away from home. We are from Southern Ontario.
    Enjoyed reading your blog, and the cruise night is right up my alley.

  5. Nice to see your having a great time with the family. Just never know who you might see when visiting COD. You and Trent look good in those matching hats. Have a GREAT SUNDAY!

  6. I guess I may have to go to the COD and buy myself one of those hats. On second though - maybe not!!

    We were in downtown Palm Springs last night, too bad we didn't know about the car show, it looked like fun.

  7. John,

    We're neighbours now! We rolled into your Caliente RV Park yesterday and, knowing that you are busy with visitors, Jeanette and I will drop by to say hello.

    We will be busy with our Vancouver golfing friends on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday...but we'll make the time to drop over. We're due east of your spot, closer to the club house.

  8. Hey, John. You don't have to worry about us getting our hats mixed up anymore.
    Teresa was afraid that might happen so she dyed mine a bright pink !!
    Problem solved ... LOL
    Take care ... TnT
