My daughter and her family were here for a short visit on their way from Hawaii to Florida, their next home. We managed to work in a trip to Hollywood to see the movie UP. When I was young, all new movies opened in Hollywood and often stayed there for months before going out to the suburbs. So most of us ventured into Hollywood to see movies, like The Godfather or Bullet. Our next stop was the Farmer's Market in West LA. One of my favorite places in all of Southern California. It is celebrating its 75th anniversary and 40 years ago I had lunch there nearly every day. I worked across the street from it. So, while the quality of this picture leaves a lot to be desired; it is precious to me. I was able to share a bit of my past with my grandchildren.
