2/18 ~ Lets see. I’m in Riverside at my Aunt’s house. My Aunt doesn’t have WiFi, so I fixed it. Sort of. I went to Walmart and bought a no-contract Broadband card and one of the cards for some time online. At least I’ll be able to occasionally upload some blog posts while I’m here. Now, where did I leave off in the last post? Oh yeah! In Palm Springs 2 days ago!
2/16 ~ Once the Holiday Inn moved us to a different room, we had a working WiFi connection and I was able to at least let the family know where we were and what we were up to. Only I didn’t tell everyone what we had planned. Mom and I had decided that we both wanted to take a ride on the Palm Springs Tram. The weather report for the day was kind of iffy. They were expecting rain in the valley and snow on top of the mountain. It was still nice when we set out towards the Tram station, though. This picture shows our view back at the base station shortly after beginning our trip. The gondolas on the tram rotate as you ride up the cable, so your view constantly changes. Having the gondolas rotate made it a pleasant ride up the mountain because there was no jockeying for position as people looked for things to take pictures of. We all got to take pictures of the station at the bottom and we all got to take pictures of the cables, the towers and the mountains.. And the view of the valley below. It was absolutely spectacular. This picture of the valley was taken from the patio at the mountain station. It was quite a bit colder at the top. When we walked out onto that patio, I hit a patch of ice and skated for a few inches. I moved over and followed Mom along the wall of the building where it was dry.
3/16~ Wow.. It’s been a month since I wrote the beginning of this post. Sorry about that, folks! Things got a bit hectic when we got back home and then I had my granddaughter come from Utah for a weeklong visit. It was pretty busy while she was here.. Lots of activities and fun.. For now, I’m going to pass up posting pictures and stuff from the rest of the trip. Just take my word for it, Mom and I had a wonderful trip. We saw lots of neat things, did a lot of fun things and had good visits with friends and family in Southern California.
Now for a small “rant” aimed at a certain “anonymous” person who keeps posting comments that I will not allow to be published. Stop. Now. I’m tired of reading your little rants/comments. I will not publish them, nor will you miraculously change my opinion, so you might as well give up.
I do not hate anyone, Phil Spector included. Keep up your garbage, and I might come close to “hating” you. See, the thing is, “hate” is an emotion that you have to work at maintaining. It's not a healthy emotion. Plus, you also need to know the person you “hate”. I don’t know Phil Spector, nor do I know his wife so I don't "hate" them. Mr "Anonymous", I don’t even “hate” you for what you are doing. But, today, you must be feeling very proud of yourself. You managed to start a ruckus that got the Phil Spector Appeal thread closed for the night. Wow.. What an accomplishment. Hopefully no one got banned because of your “fun”. Go ahead and keep posting links to my blog… I really don’t care. The post you keep sending people to is almost 2 years old and has absolutely no relevance to what is going on today. Ok. /Rant off.
