Graphics Meeting in Santa Monica and Visit with Fred

I fly down to Santa Monica for a three day graphics meeting. I stay at the Double Tree hotel by the 3rd Street Promenade. On Thursday we have an outting to Hollywood Blvd., where we tour the Kodak Theater, explore the front of the Chinese Theater, and then see the Disney movie "Shaggy" at the El Capitan Theater across the street. I stay and extra night (Friday night) and visit with Fred in Hollywood. On Saturday, we tour Frank Lloyd Wright's Hollyhock House on Hollywood Blvd. and then go shopping and have lunch at the Grove and Farmer's Market. I flew home that Saturday night.

In front of the Kodak Theater. We couldn't take photos inside.

Wow, no one on the steps leading up to the Kodak Theater.

Keriann and Karen in front of the theater.

My hands in Marilyn Monroe's prints in front of the Chinese Theater. Also my feet in Alan Ladd's shoe prints.

We enjoy the preshow organ player and watching the actual Shaggy dog perform with his trainer.

After the show we had dinner at Mel's Diner, then we walk around and I take neon photos.

The graphics gang: Robb, Peter, Keriann, Me, Karen, and Russell (just missing James)

Me and Keriann!
