Gee, sorry I'm no good at keeping up this blog thing. Maybe y'all thought I fell into the Salton Sea! (Almost did, metaphorically speaking; did you know you can buy land parcels out there for under $1,000? Oooh, I was tempted!) I've been without a home internet connection for quite some time, and kind of bouncing around. I just finished up a strange stint living in a motel while looking for a place to live after fleeing from the Housemates from Hell, but now at long last I have a groovy li'l sublet and am starting to feel a bit more relaxed. So hopefully it won't be so cobwebby up in here anymore! I have so many fun Californian adventures to share.
Shields Date Gardens... heavenly for eyes & stomach alike!!
Now here are some fabulous DATE QUEENS from date festivals past!! The Riverside County Fairgrounds itself, where all this is still held, is the most magnificent midcentury approximation of Middle Eastern exotica. Also, I believe the day's events include camel racing and some sort of ostrich rodeo; totally wacko!!

Did you know that yours truly has also ridden a camel? Well I have. Her name was Cleopatra and she had the most spectacular eyelashes.
See ya soon! ♥
