BCook and CocoGleam: just trying to make you two homesick by reminding you two what happens in late spring/summer in Pasaden - people having picnics at Levitt Pavilion for one of the Summer Music Festival concerts. http://www.levittpavilionpasadena.org/
BCook and Coco Gleam: It’s I’m A Horse Monday! This is what Pasadena looked like on Father’s Day evening at the 6 PM hour at Memorial Park. Bring backs any memories of past summers at Levitt Pavilion? http://www.levittpavilionpasadena.org/
Marisa Pl: Hello! Hope you had a nice weekend and Father’s Day too. If it was a dud 0 oh well. Down here there’s moments of smooth sailing and gets intense like a Class 4 rapid. Have a good week. This snapshot was taken last night at Chalk Festival at Paseo Colorado…actually it was taken in front of the Pasadena Convention Center. The entire main walkway at Paseo Colorado was taken up.
Marisa Pl: my memory loss is kickin’ in and I already forgot the name of this TV show, but all I know that this chalk drawing(painting) was real popular at Chalk Festival last night in Pasadena. I had to nudge and push without being pushy to get a decent shot. Is this an animated series on cable or on YouTube?
John9 and Rainbow Spikers: It’s that time of the year again and I’m not talking about Obon festivals but Pasadena Chalk Festival. After Father’s Day get-together meet up for boba and beer and check out the chalk drawings? Call me. http://www.pasadenachalkfestival.com/
My weekend house getway in my home state of California isn’t at the beach or lake - it’s a modern-era(mid-century modern) house in Pasadena. Hugs to all of you everybody!

Pasadena 1940 Forward: Residential Architecture of the Recent Past is a drive-yourself tour of 6 exceptional Modern-era homes in the Pasadena area. Experienced docents will lead tours through each featured private home, providing guests with a multi-faceted exploration of the work of several distinguished architects. Included on the tour will be Pasadena architect Lawrence Test’s own home, recently restored and open to the public for the first time. We will also highlight the work of the talented builder Te…d Tyler. Born in Pasadena,
Tyler began to construct homes during the postwar building boom and worked with architects including James Pulliam, Smith & Williams, and Buff & Hensman. This tour will feature two homes designed by Conrad Buff &
Donald Hensman, capturing the entire scope of their work from the 1954 Norton House to the 1983 Hamlin House. Harold Zook’s own1951 home will be open for tours, and Mr. Zook will be present to meet tour guests. The Dorland House, designed by Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright, will also be on the tour. Writing about his home, Mr. Dorland says, “It isn’t like living, it’s like being on vacation.” The homes selected for the tour represent the work of some of the most noteworthy practitioners of residential architecture in Southern California after 1940.
Jan2: my workout suggestion, play volleyball at the park or go for a run with a local running store (you’d be amazed how many people wanna play a pick-up match once you set up the net) happy running!
