Couch on the Freeway

COVINA, CALIF — Watching the morning news. KTLA’s chopper had a cool shot of the Rose Bowl Stadium. It’s all decked out with the colors of the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Oregon Ducks. According to the pilot, choppers are not allowed to fly over the Rose Bowl on Game Day. That’s a damn shame.

A few minutes later, he flew over Highway 134 and showed us a CHP officer dragging a red couch out of the middle of the road.


This is my idea of the perfect winter day: Sunny skies, 70 degrees and people playing on the beach.

It’s my last day of my Christmas vacation in Southern California. The other day, I ran 4 miles by Newport Beach. My waistline needs all the help it can get after all the holiday eating.

I’ve told my hubby that this is how my family says “I love you” – Cooking up a feast and watching us come back for seconds.

Another holiday tradition – spending about 4 hours on I-15 and hanging out in Sin City. My dad hooked us up with a beautiful room at Mandalay Bay. It was a cool time – taking a swing at the slot machines (the Glitter Kitty machine snagged about $20 from me. Bad Kitty!) We also spent some time at my Ate’s house. I really wanted to visit her since she had to work on Christmas day. I know what it’s like to work on the holidays.

Now – getting ready for our road trip up I-5 and back to Cow Town.
