wendy's a-visiting....!

This is where our dear sweet Wendy and her darling husband Mark are staying right here in Hollywood. This was a photo that I took back in April, before I even knew that Wendy & Mark would be staying here...I can see this from my home...

And another shot of this beautiful hotel, that I did not take.... This is from the Hollywood Blvd. side....pretty, isn't it?
There is so much that dear Wendy & Mark can see right there really close by and within walking distance, too...Like.... Everyone knows this image, don't they? Grauman's Chinese Theatre, now called Mann's Chinese.... but it will always be Grauman's Chinese to me....here below is a photograph of some of the doors to the theatre... You don't hardly see doors like these anywhere anymore....And of course, the famous forecourt with all the signitures and hand and foot prints in cement started by the original owner, Sid Grauman... And this wonderful old Postcard that shows quite a bit more of the forecourt prints though it is in the abstract sort of....But a very clever postcard none the less, and really old, too.... And also right close by is the famous Hollywood Walk Of Fame...which, over the years has become a huge tourist attraction and righfully so...These are just a few of the things that Wendy and Mark could do right there in their neighborhood! When I see them, I'll find out if they did any of these things, and I will see them later today....Hooray!

And , I assure you, pictures will be snapped, and snapped, and snapped, for sure...

I had a lovely long conversation with Wendy on Wednesday afternoon, right after they arrived at the hotel....

Thursday was a day of "tours" for them, which I am sure I will hear all about when I see them later today...I am hoping to take them on my own private "Naomi's Hollywood Tour"....if all goes well....!

So, till Saturday, please be patient, my darlings, and ALL will be revealed.....(lol)




More To Come, you can be sure......

Oh so much fun. Can't wait to get back to LA next summer. My children would come now, but they aren't exactly taking in to account that they are in school right now and we can't just go zipping off for a week. Keep up updated.

wow, seeing all those Hollywood pictures makes me miss being there! I was at Graumans (Manns) when the Star Trek folks put their handprints in cement.. it was nice to see that they still did that. I'll have to dig out the pictures soon and do a post of it..
I also took care of DeForest Kelley's star along with Richard Widmarks and AC Lyles..(the only one I didn't know personally is Widmark) it was fun while it lasted *sigh* you sure make me miss living out there!

I always liked the Chinese Theater.

Cinemas today look like warehouses.

I am cracking up! We both did a spotlight on Hollywood this week, and our photos are very complimentary.
I can only imagine your tour of Hollywood is divine.

That Hollywood Walk of Fame brought back memories of my trip to Hollywood in the mid-80's. Have a photo of those stars in the sidewalk someplace.
Enjoy your visit with Wendy and your tour....looking forward to the photos and all the details.

Those are such nice pics, I love that hotel at night. I had no idea that the cement looked like that, almost like steel. And oh, Shirley Temples! Can you believe I've lived here ALL my life & have never seen any of that?

I look forward to seeing your pics taken with Wendy & her husband. Have fun together!

I've been there, but I am sure that my tour was not as much fun as your will be! Can't wait to see the pics, Naomi.

How nice that they will have such a wonderful personal guide. Will you go to the Emmy's or just watch on TV?

I've been blogging and having no trouble sailing through the internet. THEN, I had trouble getting your comment box to open for me. I think Blogger is targeting YOU today!!!!

Hooray! You have a visitor!! I hope to visit you some day when I visit my brother who lives in South Pasadena. When we come to see you, I will have him play the piano for you. He is superb!! He can play ANYthing you put in front of him and he can play anything he's heard by ear. Amazing.

I hope Wendy and her hubby have enjoyed a wonderful time in Hollywood. Our family has been there and made sure our kids had the whole Hollywood experience.

I hope you are having a good weekend, even if Blogger is being a BUGGER!!!!

I had a blast when I went to visit LA a few years back! The Theater was my fave on the trip, I must have spent hours seeing if anyone's handprints would fit my hands *chuckle*
