Oh, I just don't understand the iPad. Usually all my photos download from my iPhone to my IPad so I can do a blog post. Tonight only some of them did. Then I totally lost the post I started. ARGH!!!
So . . . here we go again . . . sigh.
It's so good to be in LA visiting my older son. It has been way too long since I've seen him. Today he was able to take us to his current job site. He works for a high end finish carpentry company. He is currently working in a mansion of a famous late actress. It sits on 9 acres on a mountaintop in Beverly Hills. The have gutted the mansion to the studs. Very few original details remain which I find very sad.
Here is an original fireplace. My son Bill gives you an idea as to how big the fireplace is. The entire room was wood and it all was stripped due to lead based paint.
This was referred to as a bottle window. Each circle looks like the bottom of a pop bottle. (Or as many of you call it, a soda bottle.).
Italian tiles outside the front door.
View from the back of the mansion looking at the pool and downtown LA in the distance.
Spanish moss and orchids booming in a little greenhouse.
Fern growing out the side of the greenhouse.
Outdoor birdcage probably 10' tall.
From there we headed to the Getty Center (www.getty.edu).
Carved ivory, from the 1500's if I remember correctly.
View to the city.
This is the traffic my son deals with daily. UGH!
A very cool "tree" made out of rebar.
Little succulent garden.
There was so much more to see, but we ran out of time (and energy . . . lol).
This post has about taken me forever, so I'd best quit while I still have a bit of my sanity.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
