Oops! I hope the Lord got a chuckle from my mistake Sunday morning on the way to Church. I needed to call our daughter, so had my cell phone in my hand, and was thinking out my call when Don said "Honey, pray for the day and a safe journey to Church". So I said a simple prayer, asking the Lord for a good day to worship Him and a safe journey there and without thinking ended it by saying "Talk to You later, Bye." Don looked at me, I realized what I said, and we both cracked up. In all the years I've been praying I've never said that!!! Silly cell phone!!
Mr. Boddy's office in the Boddy House
Boddy House is the original 22-room house built by E. Manchester Boddy, publisher and owner of the former Los Angeles Daily News, and designed by James E. Dolena in the Hollywood Regency style in 1937. Boddy originally owned the property on which the Descano Garedens is now situated. In 1953, Boddy sold his estate—including his house—to Los Angeles County. At the same time, a vigorous volunteer group sprang up to lend assistance and support. Known as the Descanso Gardens Guild, this nonprofit volunteer group led many of the improvements that subsequently have shaped today’s Descanso Gardens.
When Jon and I visited Desconso Gardens, he took this picture of the typewriter on the desk of Mr. Boddy. Can you believe this is the typewriter that he typed his articles for the Los Angles Daily News. We've come a long way...
Dinner at The Olive Garden was a treat for a "Date Night" Sunday evening. It was very crowded, and parking impossible ~ but then a little blessing from the Lord ~ a park opened up very close to the restaurant, and the 45 minute wait, turned out to be 10 when a small booth opened up. The food was delicious. I had the Herb crusted Salmon.
My dearest chose the Chicken Marsala on Angel Hair Pasta. We each brought home half for dinner tonight. The bread sticks with oil and vinegar dip, and the salad made for a perfect date and meal. The best part, we used two gift cards so the dinner was a gift too. A very good weekend.
