Illinois virtually vacationing

Hi! John here.North Central Illinois calling.Cold and snowy out here.Haven't been to California since the 70's when I was a youngster.My Grandmother owned Aletano's on Laurel Canyon and Victory Blvd., until she passed.I remember a big biker named Jerry that was her head cook.Went water skiing on Pyramid lake?Is that right? I remember Paradise Cove with the semi-circle house jutting from the rocks above,and the tide seperating the clothed people from the non-clothed.And Hollywood Boulevard was pretty cool for a kid of my age at that time.Like a bowl of Granola,Fruits,Nuts,and Flakes!Love to come out again sometime,John
