Happy Half a Century Sis…

So, today was my sister Jordana’s birthday. Her 50th! And, as it is a tradition in our family that we get together and do something unique, we headed out.

Now, I’ve lived in LA my whole life and never took the Metro. Uh hem, I mean the Subway. YES, LA has a Subway! “But where should we take the Subway to?” …we asked. Her answer was, “Let’s go to Olvera Street! Haven’t been there in a coon’s age!”

So, off we went. And you know? We had a blast. Felt like we were on vacation in our own city. We snagged the Metro at Universal City and took it downtown straight to Olvera Street at Union Station. (Union Station was used in BLADE RUNNER.) Then, we walked across the street and went right into O Street. All this, in 107 degree weather. Ouch.

But it was her Birthday. And Birthday’s are special. And she’s special. So,… you get what you want when it’s your Birthday. ALWAYS remember that…
