Friendly Hills Bowl is the kind of place you would find along Route 66 or in your favorite 1950s teen movie. The architecture is a cross between The Jetsons and early Las Vegas strip. You can almost smell the bubble gum, here the sliding of saddle shoes and hear Sinatra spinning on a 45.

Our neighbors with the dogs don't have time during the day to walk their two, restless dogs. So, rather than the police removing the dogs, my son approached the neighbors and asked if he could walk their dogs everyday after school for a fair price. So now he spends 30 minutes a day, helping the dogs walk off their "barking."
The dogs are happy, the neighbors with the dogs are really happy, and my son is..., well happily employed.

A few weeks back, a few of us signed up for the Broadway Historic Theatre and Commercial District Walking Tour through the Los Angeles Conservancy.
For $10, the two-hour-plus tour took us down Broadway where we explored breath-taking architecture, saw hidden treasures most never see and even took in some scandalous, Hollywood gossip from the 1920s; it was worth every dime.

Since this is a historical post, I decided to display the out of doors shots in black and white. But once inside some of the theaters, I made the decision to use full color. You will understand once you see what's inside. I also included a few street photo shots just for fun. Click here and enjoy...
