OM has given us a challenge to talk about where we live.  I have looked at some of the responses and I have to tell you that there are some amazing looking places.  Some are bright and colorful, some look quiet and peaceful and others I can’t put into words.  My photos are not like those.  I live in a beautiful suburb of Los Angeles, California called West Hills.  Many of the cities around here have changed their names to some kind of hill or other.  But, we are still L.A., so I am going to just show some places that we have here close by.

There are so many places to go, so many things to do.  I have lived here all of my life and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.  I grew up going to Disneyland three or four times a year, eating at the Brown Derby in Hollywood, seeing Ray Charles at the Greek and Fleetwood Mac at the Hollywood Bowl.  We took our first trip to the beach (Santa Monica or Malibu) every March and went to the Disney Christmas Party that was hosted by Walt Disney in December.  The best time of the year was summer when we went water skiing at Lake Isabella, rode horses at Griffith Park and picked apricots in our backyard.  Obviously, I love L.A.

    Hey I live in the East Valley. We go to the Farmer’s Market often especially during the holidays when they have the snow.

      I always go at Christmas times. I love the dressed up carolers and, of course I have to go to Dupar’s! Aren’t we lucky?

      I just reblogged it. OM allowed us to do it so he is the host. But I am glad that you took advantage of it.
