#tbt Throw Back Thursday - 1992
|Phil and Larry, Mid-City L.A., 1992|
I snapped many photos in 1992. This was the year that Larry and I were married. We tied the knot at the L.A. Courthouse in March. In April, my parents had a mini-reception for their friends and some family at Del Rey Yacht Club. In early August we had a big reception for our friends in our backyard. It was a grand event with a Louisiana-style dinner and the music/dance stylings of The Zydeco Party Band. I painted three large portraits of Larry and I and attached them to the set. A few weeks after our reception we decided to hold an informal get-together with a few friends that could not attend the reception. This photo is from that evening.
The set of KTLA's "The Late Mr. Pete Show" was the back-drop for our party. I worked on the show and the back-drop was going to be trashed until we saved it! It lived in our backyard for years until it finally disintegrated! I just LOVED that set. It made our backyard so colorful and fanciful for a long time. We used it as the background for many parties. The photo above is our friend, Phil with Larry, posing in front of the "swimming pool."

We might have one tiny remnant of the set in our garage. I'll have to dig it out one of these days!
