My ong co (Vietnamese great-grandfather), ba noi's father's, death anniversary back in February.
Last weekend, Gourmet Pigs had an extra ticket to the LA Opera so she took me to see Franz Schreker's "The Stigmatized (Die Gezeichneten)."
Umm, LA Opera? I'm still traumatized by the gratuitous nudity and rape scene at the end.
I much prefer Italian operas thank you very much.
Before the show, I snapped some shots of the fountain in front of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
The Dance Door with a view of city hall.
Lots of stuff happened in between, but I'm a little too tired to go into all that right now.

1 year ago today, Autumn Sunset climbing rose.
2 years ago today, boat people, my friend Don, and his mom's pho bo (Vietnamese beef noodle soup).
3 years ago today, after a cold frost, everything's growing again in my garden -- Lady Fairbanks roses blooming over a trellis, strawberries ripening in the side herb garden, and wildflowers popping up at random.
