New Life?

Passed by this house thru the years and it always had a new weekly word, or words. ALWAYS tagged up. At roughly 26th and Griffin Ave.

The real estate listing states..."Two separate historical bungalows on corner lot... Bring your vision and improve these vintage homes to their original splendor."

Guess the old owners had enough or just ran out of paint. And split. Good luck future owners.

Out above the old Indian caves.

Wisps of the original Arroyo locals past.

Miss those spring cloudy sunsets.

Do like Pooh Bear.

Sit on the curb and don't care.

All unstuffed and bare.

Beauty of a night to go for a drive around Los Angeles.

Of course the dirt roads in Montecito Heights are wide open as always.

Carmageddon what.

Third big tree that has fallen on Montecito Drive since last winter. It was slumping down early afternoon and by sundown it had fallen. Thankfully no one was in the wrong spot at the wrong time.

I love trees and would hate to see all of the slanted ones removed. Hopefully the City can give them some support.

Yeeeah, they'll get right on that I am sure.

Everyone gets along up in the hills.

No see colors.

Racism is schism on the serious tip.
