Hello dear Sheri!

Thank you for taking us downtown with you... ;) That sundae is calling my name, although the weather is definitely turning here. Crisp, but sunny.
Wonderful photos, giving us a glimpse of a vibrant, exciting city.
Hugs to you,

I enjoyed this little tour of Downtown and I'm sure I would have liked the sundae too! A trip down Memory Lane with the Petula Clark song. I haven't heard it for such a long time. An uplifting song!

It's me said...

Have a Nice weekend my Darling friend....love Ria...!...

My first hot fudge sundae I have ever eaten was on a trip thru East America with my parents in the end 70s! I have never forgotten it - it was sooo delicious! Nice that you made me remembering it :)

Oh love, love this song and I too have wonderful memories of Hot Fudge Sundae's. My Mom's very favorite. There were many times when we would each get one from our local drive in, in the sleepy little farm town seven miles from home. It sort of became a tradition for us, after we had completed our Saturday afternoon grocery shopping.
Happy Thursday, Sheri-
Love,
Jemma

Sherri,

Boy, is that a step back in time!! I always loved Petulia Clark, every one of her songs!

That ice-cream looks divine and I wish I could have had one with you.

Have a great weekend!

Oh my friend, you have taken me back to when I was just a kid.....I used to LOVE to go DOWNTOWN Los Angeles with my parents. We'd go to Olvera St., to the Million Dollar Theatre for a movie, and this song would be playing. I immediately fell in love with the cosmopolitan life.

Ahhhh....love this song.

Straight back to my childhood with that song! Thank you!

I love Petula Clark and her music too. Downtown was a great song. Now I'm going to be humming it all day.

NanaDiana said...

I have always loved that song and Petula Clark. For some reason I always link it to Lulu and To Sir With Love. Both English maybe?

Anyway - great post- xo Diana

Dear Sheri, I want to thank you, sweet friend, for taking the time to visit all of my blogs...you are so kind!
I love reading your thoughtful comments, and want to thank you for writing from the heart.

I have not tried the pumpkin muffins from Starbucks, but if you like gingerbread, be sure to try theirs around the holiday time. Oh my, it is amazing. :)

Hugs,

Thank you for stopping by earlier. Looks like a purple autumn for me. ;)
