As we go further into February, you would think that the Doo Dah Parade has become a distant dream, but it is still very much a part of my life.
For example, I took my mother, AKA the Royal Mum, to the Fret House in Covina for its Open Mic Night last Saturday and they announced that the Doo Dah Queen was in attendance.
And at the mardi gras party at Mr. T’s Bowl in Highland Park Tuesday, people were still congratulating me and commenting on how they were so pleased that I am the reigning Queen. The most amusing – and sweet – comment that evening came from a shy guy, who looked down at the floor and said, in between furitive glances at me, “I saw you on TV. You had your dog with you. You were pretty.” Awwwww….
I am still waiting for the Pasadena Museum of History’s (www.pasadenahistory.org) slide show to be added to its exhibit, but here’s a couple more photos from my fun day with the wonderful and always in focus photographer Terry Miller.
You may also want to make reservations for Esotouric’s “Renyer Banham Loves Los Angeles: Route 66” tour
March 1. Not only will it be a fun time, I will be in attendance to help entertain, inform and share my glory with those on board. Visit www.esotouric.com for more information.
Yes, it is good to still be the Queen!!
