School of Rock

School of Rock!  I love seeing shows at the Pantages because I remember going there with my Nana when I was just a little kid.  It's always held a magical feeling for me since the theatre is one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever been in.

Malibu Canyon

It's always gorgeous in Malibu but with the rain came green grasses, flowers and water in the streams, all adding to the natural beauty.

Sherry almost got a $300 ticket for bringing her dog in to the park.  Oops, we didn't read the signs and got an earful from the ranger but thankfully he believed us when we told him that we didn't see the sign (Sherry and I were too busy chatting away to notice signs :)

Stardust - a gorgeous modern dance featuring Bowie Music.  I was in tears at the first note of music (Lazarus).  I heard two other women say they started crying too.

Lunch at the deli

While visiting Lorie and her dad Lenny I also got to have a deli platter fix, which I had been craving for a month.  There's no deli's in our neighborhood.

I love spring

Spring in Placerita Canyon is alive and well:

I love lupine.  Here they are in a field enjoying the sun:

A Real Trouper

Most actors are dedicated to their work...
But this guy is a real trouper...
He had an accident last night and was at the hospital until 5:00 in the morning but made it to our 9:00 a.m. record session.  What a pro!  And he did a good acting job under the worse circumstances with a smile on his face.

Mick Wingert and Tara Sands:

Talent Week at USC

I enjoyed hanging with Saul and Wes at USC's Talent Week.  The theme was the Collaborative Process of Casting for Animated Films and TV Series. 

Oh right...bring cards with me...duh!

Easter in Solvang with Mom.  We got there on Good Friday and found ourselves at the Santa Ynez Mission:

It was extra pretty being there in spring when everything is green.

We stayed at the Chumash Resort which my mom loves for the gambling and buffet.  You should've seen her plate!

I would like gambling a lot more if they didn't let people smoke in the casino.  This cigarette machine is placed right outside of the "non smoking" gambling area.  Ha ha!

I enjoyed playing video black jack with this guy and I'm happy to report I walked away even after playing for an hour.  

Get the windmill in the background!

We stopped at Lake Cachuma on our way to visit Lorie in Santa Barbara.

Sina At The Rescue - Baby Squirrels

When baby squirrels are screaming for help you have no choice but to save them.  Sina captured four of them over a couple of days.  The mother must have gotten killed.  Sina will raise them and then release them when they're old enough.

They love avocado:
It's amazing how trusting these little creatures are.

Vince was brushing it and it just sat there.  You could tell it really loved being brushed.
I think this was baby capture #3.  The poor little thing walked right up to Sina.  It must have understood that she would help it.

Jasper Johns Exhibit at the Broad

A perfect diversion on a rainy day...a Jasper Johns exhibit at the Broad 

 These are my favorite JJ's.  I like his number series.

Who's the boss?

A Robert Longo.  I knew Robert back in the day and have fond memories hanging out with him in Paris and the lovely memories he made for my Nana.  When we arrived to our Paris hotel there was a giant bouquet of flowers addressed to my Nana saying "welcome to Paris Nana" She was so impressed.  I love that he did that.  Sweet.

I extra like this photo because:  Vince is taking a photo of a Barbara Krueger piece and the Robert Longo piece is in the reflection.

Apparently we're terrified of rabbits!
