Vintage Photo Friday

Larry and Ellen as Kids (Photoshopped)
No, we didn't know each other as children)

We're driving to La Quinta in the beautiful California desert tomorrow morning for a few days. We just love the desert. The sitelines of sand, mountains, clear blue skies, cactus and clear air is always breathtaking. Our friends, Jacquie and Bob have a lovely home there, with plenty of room for houseguests. This will be like a playdate for us kids!

Jacquie as a little girl

Bob, as a little boy

Jacquie and I have been friends since we met while working at USC in the mid-1970's. We both grew up on the westside of Los Angeles, led parallel lives and have much in common. Later, we both got jobs at 20th Century-Fox Studios. I'd say that Jacquie is probably my best CONTINUOUS girlfriend. I am still in contact with friends from high school, but those friendships come and go. Jacquie and I are gold.
After leaving 20th, Jacquie's interesting life took her to Hawaii to live on a macadamia nut farm with her long-time b.f., Bob. Since leaving Hawaii, Jacquie and Bob have lived in Las Vegas and La Quinta and traveled around the world.
Luckily, the four of us get along famously. We plan to take a few desert area field trips while we're out there. Also, quite close to J's & B's house is a newish yarn shop called The Ultimate Point. I'm always up for a tour of a yarn shop!

I believe the real question is, Has Larry been wearing THE SAME PAIR of glasses since he was five?! :)

Wow. All that and a yarn fix, too. You have a great weekend!

Love that idea. I think I'm not skilled enough to photoshop a photo of my husband and myself together but I'm going to give it a whirl.
