Julian Romero and Efrem Rensi were both in Los Angeles this weekend and we had a fine and pleasant, but hot run with my neighbor Bernard and myself. Then Efrem, Julian, and I too Psycho Herman out for a walk, while I also gave Efrem and Julian the architectural tour of Sunset Beach. When we go to the water tower house, Efrem noticed the farmer’s market across the street, and none of us, except maybe Herman, had much to eat yet today, and it was getting near the late afternoon. So we crossed the street, and shared some fresh fruit, and listened to the live music at the market. Then we sampled a bit of 47 Ronin in 3D at home.
