Fun Day With My Neighbor Jean

Original plan for today was to catch the Metrolink Train at 6:14 am and head down to Los Angeles for another dry run of me going to jury duty at the Federal Court House, but since I got excused from the jury duty, I told Jean we had to figure out something else to do, so we headed down to the Gene Autry Museum of the American West. It is across the street from the Los Angeles Zoo in Griffith Park. They were having a special Route 66 Exhibit that we wanted to see, but we also went through all of the other galleries which included Native American Art and a lot of old west things like rifles, revolvers, old western clothes, etc. We really had a nice time there even if the place was being overrun by kids from various s summer camps. Seems like every time Jean and I go somewhere like that, we end up being surrounded by little kids. We were wondering if there was some way we could find out a day to go when there would be no kids (LOL).
I was told in two of the galleries that I was not allowed to take photographs, but I “sneaked” some anyway. They let you take photo in the galleries where everything stays year-round, but they don't want you taking photos in the special exhibits.
Anyway, I will be posting and emailing my photographs from today a little later once I get them uploaded to my computer and can sort them out.
There was a cafe at the museum, but we walked in and saw the prices and turned around and walked right back out and headed over to “Beautiful Downtown Burbank” (remember “Laugh-in”?) and had lunch at Fuddruckers. They have such good burgers. We were surprised that they were not crowded because we got there just a little after 12 noon.
Got back home just before 2 pm.

  1. Lunch looks scrumptious. You do not look happy in that jail cell, even though you were having FUN.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
