Its a small world after all

Hello from sunny California... Today will be in the 80's... perfect Christmas weather LOL I don't care I am still gonna wear my UGGS and jeans... LOL

Yesterday Sam and I drove the Excursion with a trailer to Los Angeles to pick up the remaining items at Grampa's house. Escrow closes this week. We just happened to run into the new owner. She was really nice and so perfect to buy Dad's house! Sam's sister Tina came over to see us and talked about how wonderful Thanksgiving was again! She said "I know you and Gram Pam worked really hard to make everything seem so effortless and easy Thank you!" that was nice to hear!
We also took Bolts with us to Grampa's... I was NOT leaving all 3 dogs in the house to get into it... They have been being really good however I am beginning to see the problem is with Gigi not Bolts... the trainer said even tho I had both Bolts and Gigi fixed last month, the hormones are still in their bodies for at least 3 months... I am thinking the girls are being hormonal... Hell I don't know... I do know I just can't leave Bolts in exile... Kameron is gone riding this weekend and then he goes to school 4 days a week... He is gone most of the day! I just can't leave Bolts here to chew up the house yanno? So she is going back to the Hi D with us in a couple of hours...
Say a prayer for my dogs please!
Ok so where was I in my story about Grampa's house? Hhhhhhmmm Oh ya...
Kris came over to Grampa's house to help Sam load up the trailer... 3 motorcycles, a small trailer, a LARGE bar with bar stools my daughter wanted but never picked up...
[Hi Candice... your father was not happy with you yesterday... that bar is 7 feet long and heavy... it will be at the Hi D house when you want to pick it up... outside...]

I asked "Do you want to go to Candice's and drop it off Sam?"
Kris started laughing "Ya right, where is she going to put it?"
Sam said "Can I throw it towards her apartment at 55 miles per hour?"
We all laughed...

Anyway, we have it all loaded up and ready to take to the Hi D house...

While we were driving we were listening to the OJ verdict on the radio... I am pretty sure I have told you guys the story about meeting OJ in 1990?
Long story short... My friend and I had been shopping in Palm Springs all day and she wanted to go have a drink at a place called Cecil's on Sunrise... Well I had never been there and didn't know if we were dressed up enough... A Rolls Royce pulls up and 2 guys in sports coats get out... we thought uh oh we are NOT dressed up enough [we were in Bermuda shorts] suddenly this guy comes up to us "Ladies, Ladies, where are you going?" "We are not dressed up enough!" "You look fine!" "Hey I know you... your OJ Simpson" "Yes, I am"
So we started walking up to the door... there was a cover charge to get in and he paid ours... I could tell his friends were not happy with the way he was acting but I didn't know why till months later... My friend and I were both married so we didnt want to hang out with him getting picked up yanno? So we blew him off and went our own way... Later my friend said "Im going to go get his autograph" I said "Ok" She came back PISSED... I guess he was already trying to pick up on some other blonde at the bar and he got ALL shitty with my friend [I guess because we blew him off] My friend said "I just wanted an autograph but forget it" then OJ said "I'm sorry, here I'll sign an autograph"
Fast forward 3 months and we hear the infamous 911 call Nicole made about OJ on New Years Day... My friend called me and said "OMG he was married!" Now I understand why his friends didnt seem happy with his behavior... Anyway... all I remember was his HUGE HEAD... the man has the biggest head I have ever seen! Plus I always thought he would be taller! He is only about 5'11...


How about this for a small world... Christopher Dardin the attorney in the OJ murder trial lived across the street from Grampa... [he moved a couple years after the trial] but how strange we would hear OJ's sentence while driving to Grampa's years later...

Hhhhmmm Karma finally caught up to the man...

And that is all I have to say about that...

OJ is a murderer and a liar and a thug and was sent to prison yesterday as a judicial payback, IMO. I do remember well when i was a kid how beloved he was when he was a football star. I know Bolts will enjoy the time with you and Sam. XO

I remember that story. Always interesting to have brushes with the infamous of America. It must be sad leaving grandpa's for the last time. Hope you have a really good week beautiful. Take care.
