CHERISHING OUR VALLEY              2013

Any minute now my daughter-in-law will be delivering an heir to the Fecht family kingdom. So our family decided that we should follow the San Fernando Valley tradition of having "The The Salad" at the Caioti Pizza Cafe in Studio City. The six of us stuffed ourselves on an enormous pepperoni pizza and watched as our Rebecca added her comments to the cafe's "Labor Journal." (By the way the special salad is good!)  My grandson, Jake had a "Bubble Up" soft drink from a ice cold bottle. I didn't know that "Bubble Up" was still on the market.

After our lunch, my family explored the great little shops along Tujunga Avenue. To our delight we encountered Jenna Stewart at her new "Simply Succulent" store. This shop is worth driving to the Tujunga Village district, just for the pure joy of the experience.

Because of the hot weather, we were "forced" to stop to try out a gelao. My was a grapefruit ice - was absolutely terrific.
