Does This Dress Make My Butt Look Big?

February 19                                                                       Palm Springs

    I have been reading about the Marilyn Monroe statue that is in downtown Palm Springs.    It was on our "to see" list", so on Tuesday we drove in to Palm Springs and found a nice parking lot that was right next to Forever Marilyn.   Be sure to click on the link and read all the details of this huge statue.  We approached Marilyn from the back, and could not help but think of the title for this blog.

Pretty toes!
     After viewing Marilyn from all sides, we walked the shopping area of downtown.  Al found "Lucy" sitting on a bench and had a moment with her.
"Lucy, you've got some 'splainin to do!"
     The girls did a little shopping, while the guys waited patiently (?) for us.  Gene was sitting on one of the benches that must be placed on the sidewalks for husbands, when a man came up and asked if he could share his bench.  He said his dad called these "Visa Benches".  They will forever be that for us!
     After lunch, we drove to the bike store to take my old bike in and pick up my new one.  We just donated it to the store.  They said they worked with the homeless and fix up bikes and donated them.
     My new bike is an Electra Townie 7 speed and is soooooo much better than my KMart bike.  (sorry, KMart)   Al talked me into buying it, and I am glad he did.  It is worth every penny.  So much easier to ride. 


  1. Great Pics of Marilyn. Like your new bike..may you have many miles of pleasure.Still waiting for a bike.

  2. My bike's name is Lucy. You've named everything from your iPad (Paddy) to the motorhome (iHome)...is the bike's name Electra?
