It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

M is for Marilyn Monroe


We were in Hollywood, California recently and were watching the stars (on the ground) while walking back to our car.  We walked over Marilyn's and I mentioned I should do her for M since we had a couple of pictures I could use. My dear sweet husband asked if I had her star. When I said no he said we should go back and get it while we were here!








Here is my husband with Marilyn at Madame Tussaunds (on Hollywood Blvd) - different trip

Our daughter is in the funeral industry. In the middle of office buildings in Los Angeles, California, is a Memorial Park that is really park-like and since we'd be nearby, she wanted to go. We saw several office workers come just to eat lunch while we were there. If you're in Los Angeles anyways check it out.
Here's Marilyn's
That's all I have for Marilyn but I did like Don Knotts' grave marker. Someone put A LOT of time into this one.
We wandered around (it isn't that big) to see who else was there. Ray Bradbury had a space reserved. Yes, he's there now but we were there before he was. The earliest marker we found was 1840 to 1912.

My favorite was Judi Craven, owner of The Top Drawer, a sophisticated dress shop on the Sunset Strip. Obituary

I read a bio on her when I was a kid and she had a pretty impressive life.

Wow, someone did put a lot of work in the Don Knott's grave marker. Very nice. Did the walk of stars years and years ago. So much fun!
