Today January 6th, is the day of the Three Kings or the Three Wise Men.
The three kings were late to bring presents to baby Jesus. They finally arrived on January 6th. It is a day well celebrated in Latin America. Instead of believing that Santa Claus brings you presents, kids believe the three Kings bring them.
I got a present in the mail today from the three Kings!
Ok, so it was not the Three Kings that brought me a bottle of Tommy Lasorda wine. It was my friend Sandi who was here in the LA area visiting last week! Thank you Sandi! You shouldn’t have but I love it!!
After I picked up Sandi last week and we had lunch at Portos Bakery, guess where we went?
Here we are at Santa Barbara with Julie who is another Cardinal fan.
Coming back from Santa Barbara, we stopped at Jeff Suppan’s restaurant “Soup’s Grill”. jeff was the nicest person. He even gave us one of his baseball cards that he made specifically for the Grand Opening of his restaurant. Thanks Jeff! You rock! I hope you do sign with a team soon!
Sandi took a ton of pictures from the Rose Parade, the two wine tasting places, Soup’s Grill, the Equestrian Festival, the Griffith Observatory.
Thank you Julie for driving us to Santa Barbara. It was fun hanging with you two in Santa Barbara and Woodland Hills (Jeff’s restaurant & Trader’s Joes (Sandi had never been) Wine was good, company great and I loved Polo’s suggestion of going to the Santa Barbara Shell Fish Co. Is a small world that Polo suggested also to go to Surf Dog for a Dodger Dog. I know about Surf Dog because of Jane Heller.
Thank you Sandi! I loved having you here in LA and I got to go to places that I had not been to even if I am a local here.
Is great to hang with Baseball friends! The Rose Parade theme was just perfect: “Building values, friendships and memories.
visit Jeff’s Suppan restaurant at http://www.soupsgrill.com/ He has a ton of baseball memorabillia.
A while back when the Dodgers got Uribe, I posted a question on Ozzie Guillen’s blog. He responded! Thanks Ozzie!
Q: Since the Dodgers have Juan Uribe and he played for the White Sox, what can you tell us about him?
A: Uribe is awesome. He may look like a little Buddha, but he is an amazing baseball player. I think he is so good because he is not afraid of the moment. He really is fearless, maybe because he has no idea how big the moments actually are! (haha) I only kid with him because that’s my boy, and he will be great for the Dodgers.
As I always say, keep the questions coming!
Until next time …
Haha. Ozzie is funny. If you want to sent Ozzie any question, go to his blog at http://ozzie.mlblogs.com/
