Visited Temecula on Tuesday, 05May09.   Good decision.  Lots of antiques.  Brought back a lot of good and happy childhood memories. Remembered Lola and Lolo in the process  (mother’s side, of course!  Is there another?)  Ate at the #1 hamburger place in California.   I have one or two every now and then, but their claim is justifiably right.

Bought a tin plate that said “Things happen for a reason....Just Believe“.  Very apropos.

The weather was perfect with a cool breeze…you could almost touch the mountains…it was your backyard!

Walked into the Olive Oil Company.  A variety of locally produced olive oils…I then drifted towards the olive oil soaps – yes, soaps.  I got one, and I love the feel.   A little steep ($5.50) for a tiny square of soap, but it delivers.  Took the basil olive oil and the balsamic vinegar home.
