you couldn’t make this up.
we had a lovely supper (it’s LA darlings of course it was sushi!) with MN and then decided a little twilight drive was in order…….
and we ended up at Rowena.
the lights were on on our old house (but it isn’t a house anymore) and so we went in……..and had the most glorious time with Eric (brother of Sophie, the co-proprietor and son of splendid jewelry designer and investor mother – we’re sorry, we forgot to ask her name) and did a virtual walkthrough explaining where the roses used to be and the original 1940s stove and deep sink and the french doors that opened to what would have been a small dining room (but was our room a decade ago) and the tiny bathroom (‘that’s still there!’ he said) and suddenly we got sad and then took a deep breath and said ‘we wrote a movie partly set here when we lost our job and our work visa for the USA and our life changed for the better – but not right away’……..
we will dig out some old pix and email them.
as we strolled away we cheered ourselves up by thinking. ‘maybe the movie will get made and the location scout will book the broome street general store for the opening ten pages’
you never know.
we have lots of adventures. we’re that sort of a team gloria (yes, that is a paraphrase from Paddington ;)
that’s the name we gave our character in the movie that starts on Rowena.
isn’t life grand? :)
