First Anniversary

One year down!
We celebrated our one year anniversary this week. We went to dinner at The Little Door, a french restaurant not too far from us. For our wedding Gary's parents gave us a big (magnum?) bottle of wne, which everyone signed at the reception. The idea is to open it on your first anniversary, which we did.

Burgers in Glendale

Gary works in the "IBM Mobility Office" in Glendale about once a week. The mobility office is really just a floor of cubicles in one of the main office buildings in downtown Glendale. It's primarily meant for sales teams, since they all work from the road or home.

Working there this week the building owner had a summer burger day for all the tenants. $3 burger, chips & a drink from the traveling In & Out Burger truck. Good stuff.

Alan ready for the rain

When we visited Alan (Sarah's dad) the other weekend, he had mentioned he was going to get a rainjacket. When we visited Yosemite a couple years ago, we got ponchos for our hike to Bridal Veil Falls. Since it does not actually rain in Los Angeles, we had no need for the ponchos and we brought them to Alan.

He graciously modeled one for the camera.

What is this a picture of?

So what is this a picture of? A rock? A pebble? A precious stone? Nope. It's a piece of Gary's top right rear molar. I felt something on my tooth, and when i picked at it, this piece came off in my hand.

Thankfully it wasn't down to the nerve, so there was no shooting pain, but I need to go get a new crown this week at the dentist. More gold in my mouth, pretty soon my body will be worth a lot.

Last night we went to our friend John & Julian's place to see their new puppies and meet for dinner. Their dog Kara had 5 puppies about 6 weeks ago. The puppies are adorable and also a little noisy. Sarah would not let me take any home. Julian said I could come back for my "puppy fix" any time.

So we set out to their place, in the Mount Washington area, about 10 miles from us. We set out at 6:30, and arrived at 8:30. A parking lot for miles for all routes. grrr. LA traffic at its best.
