Barring a last-minute air traffic controller strike or major earthquake, long about this time tomorrow night, I will be dining on Dodger Dogs and watching Manny Ramirez mangling routine fly balls in left field at Dodger Stadium, as my long-awaited Californy trip commences. It's been a long time coming, and I'm very pumped about seeing La-La Land for the first time. The itenerary goes something like this: LA Thursday, San Diego Friday, back to LA Saturday, up to the Bay Area Sunday-Monday-Tuesday (Sacramento/Tahoe/Reno area included), then back to LA Wednesday and Thursday next week and returning home Friday. If I can find some cheap Internet access along the way, I'll try to write and update y'all on how things are going, especially if I wind up having dinner with Renee Zellweger or Kate Winslet, or wind up staying the night with Gene and Shannon and the kids. Otherwise, the blog will obviously be on hiatus until my return. Photos and complete details will follow, of course.
I am now free to move about the country, so as the CB radio-types used to say (and probably still do): "Catch you on the flip-flop!"
