Leftovers, Pixies, Milk,Gutter Balls and Parades?

Good Morning, I hope everyone is doing well and kicking off their holiday season. Can you believe it is December 1st? We had a great Thanksgiving, Thursday we had some friends over to enjoy Thanksgiving with us.

Friday, we relaxed, started decorating for the holidays, and later decided to go and see the film Milk. We tried to see it at one theater and all the remaining showings were sold out. So, we went to see the 11:00 pm showing at the ArcLight in Hollywood. We really enjoyed the film, in our opinion, it was very well done. It also seems very fitting in recent political events. If you have a chance, I would recommend this film. Outside the theater, they had some memorabilia from the film.

Saturday, we went bowling at the Lucky Strike lanes at Hollywood and Highland. It was so much fun. I do not think I had been bowling since I was . . . Maybe 12 years old. I started out by putting my bowling ball in the gutter a few times. I thought, better to put it there than split the pins. I even got a few strikes! We had so much fun, I think we will be doing that again soon. After bowling, we went on a hike in Runyon Canyon. We were changing our clothes in the car and almost got busted by some walkers by. While hiking, we saw Pink. Nice to see everyone, even famous people have to work to fight the Thanksgiving bulge. Lol

Sunday, we went to see our friend who is having surgery today. Then, we took her family on the Subway to see the The Hollywood Santa Parade.

The cast of Twilight was there too.

We actually did more than I thought, now that I am sitting here listing it all out. I hope you had a great holiday also. So . . . do tell . . . what did you do? Smile and know you are appreciated.

Looks like you guys had a fantabulous weekend by the photos you have shared. Parade looked like a lot of fun. But I still am waiting for a photo of a gutter ball (or two). ;-)

I had no idea that Hollywood still had this parade! LOL!

Glad you saw MILK, I'm hoping I can go this weekend and catch a screening, as I am very much looking forward to it.

My, what a purty bowling alley.
