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

Someday,when I get a 3 dog sitter,tank watcher,someone to run my shop,extra dough,the list goes on...I'll get out there!Wouldn't know where to start,I'd need the tour guide from hell to point me in the right direction so I wouldn't end up at Disneyland or somewhere else that would scare me. John
