Great Sunday!

March 14, 2010

Grandpa Ron and I had a great Sunday! We started by going to the Wayfarer’s Chapel for the Sunday service. The celebrant, Jonathan Mitchell was brilliant as always. We really get a lot out of the services. The chapel is a very special, spiritual place for us. To top it off, the Wayfarer’s Chapel Gift Shop ordered more copies of my book Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! as they had sold out of the ones they had! Woo! Hoo! After a wonderful patio lunch in the warm sun and light ocean breeze at the San Pedro Doubletree Hotel, we did a quick tour of the harbor and then did our weekend chores. It was a super day!

Photos From Book Readings

Here are some photos from two book readings of “Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too!” that I did. One was on June 19 at a day care center in Long Beach, CA. The other reading was on Father’s Day at Wayfarer’s Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. I first blogged about them on June 15 and on June 22, 2009.

The Bucket List

June 22, 2009

Hmmmm…the buzz is beginning about Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too!. After the reading at Wayfarer’s Chapel last Sunday, one listener likened it to the movie “The Bucket List” in that you understand the deeper meaning contained within – when you ponder the simplicity of the situations and the significance they have later in life – given similar personal experiences you had yourself with your own grandparents. After the reading several people, most of them grandparents themselves, thanked me for putting into words all the kinds of experiences they had and their wonderful thoughts and memories they have of their grandparents.

The children at Long Beach Day Nursery also reacted very positively to the story last Friday. During the reading, most of them were very eager to share their own experiences with their grandparents or at least with static electricity – and the plastic slide! In fact, they voted to have me read it to them a second time!

Both readings were a lot of fun! NEW PHOTOS


A Quiet Place – Wayfarer’s Chapel

April 10, 2009

One of my favorite peaceful places in the Los Angeles area is Wayfarer’s Chapel in Palos Verdes. The grounds and gardens are absolutely beautiful to walk around. The expansive ocean view is awesome. The chapel, designed by Lloyd Wright, is one with the redwood trees surrounding it. Grandpa Ron and I also enjoy the 10 am Sunday worship services when we are in town. Check out the Wayfarer’s Chapel website to see what I mean! I’ll get some pictures on soon.
