The calm before the storm.
While most stores are trying to salvage their year or even stay alive in our current economy by enticing customers with Black Friday hours and sales, that door has already closed for Mervyn's.
This will be Mervyn's last holiday season. They are going out of business and taking a lot of jobs with them.

L.A. County plans to clear this about once a year now instead of letting it grow over for many years like it did up until earlier this year.
The entire clearing job, other than the water truck to keep the dust down, will be done this time by one man in his truck. The one partially hidden under the spray of water. He's got a cutting attachment on the end of a telescoping arm and can make quick work of anything from weeds to trees.
It should take him a little over a week.

Today's photo was generously provided by Robert C J Parry from the NorthPrimrose blog.
This is a great photo of the band in action at halftime during last week's game in which the Wildcats clinched the Rio Hondo League Championship.
Tonight the team takes on El Monte High School in the 1st round of the CIF playoffs. It's a home game at Monrovia High School. Be there!
Be sure to check out more info on the Monrovia High School Marching Wildcat Band here.
Support the band!

This one was born out of inspiration.
I was thinking of this image from Tash at Palos Verdes Daily Photo while driving against the rush hour traffic. Then there is the influence of the amazing black and white images from Laurie at Glimpses of South Pasadena and Babooshka at Ramsey Daily Photo. This is the result.
This is exactly why I started this blog. To become better by continually learning new things and trying new things. And because it's fun.

It was such a beautiful day yesterday it deserved a photo.
This is on Myrtle Ave. looking north toward downtown with the San Gabriel mountains in the distance.
On the left behind the temporary wall is the construction area for the "Courtyards At Old Town" apartment / retail development.

This sign was placed along the new section of the Ben Overturff trail as a thank you for helping to rebuild the trail after part of it had been washed out.
Members of the CCC also volunteered for, and played a huge part in the success of, the recent Haunted Hikes.

Going through some old photo's and came across this photo of Huntington Drive from 1976. On the right is the familiar Le Roy's restaurant with the old sign. On the left were businesses and homes in the space that eventually became the Huntington Oaks shopping center.
On the left you can also see the location of my first job: Der Weinerschnitzel.
It was located in the spot where the Black Angus parking lot is now.
