Henry is home from school today. He had an allergic reaction to shrimp last night so Debbie took him to the emergency room. They were there till 11:30pm getting an IV drip , watching ESPN and Malcom in the Middle. He is feeling fine this morning, just a bit tired from the late night at the E.R. We got a couple of errands to do before the pick up train begins at Ocean Charter School.
First stop is Westwood Tennis. This store in the heart of Westwood is great. It’s all about Tennis, that’s it. Henry is getting one of his racquets repaired and he wants to demo a new racquet. His birthday is coming on June 15 up you know.
We enter through the back door which is lined with boxes of tennis balls. The rest of the store is basically racquets and more racquets with and occasional animal mounted on the wall.
Next stop is to drop off our dining room table to be refinished. We’ve had our Heywood Wakefield for close to 16 years and it’s due for a face lift. In the meantime we’ve brought out a small folding table. We will see how this goes for the next couple of weeks.
After picking up from school it’s snack time. The perfect snack, in my opinion is a taco. Right near Ocean Charter School is a really good place, Taqueria Sanchez. Good carne asada and great carnitas- you can’t ask for anything more. A good sign for a taco place is the sighting of a gardener’s pick up truck parked out front. These guys know where to eat. And sure enough…
The salsa bar is also a nice touch in any taqueria. It gives the boys the freedom to choose their own salsa. Sanchez’ even has spicy carrots along with an excellent salsa roja and guacamole.
So where are we going. Good question. We are going home. Ahhhh home. I’ve been away for the past couple of weeks on shoots in San Francisco and Mt. Hood, Oregon. So sitting elbow to elbow with my family is a good thing.
