(Let Me Be) Your Teddy Bear by Elvis Presley

"Baby let me be, around you every night
Run your fingers through my hair
And cuddle me real tight
Oh let me be (oh let him be)
Your teddy bear..."

Disneyland in May

Amanda and I finally got around to going back to Disneyland this month. It has been getting harder and harder to make time to get to the park. This time around, we had a little game and a bet going. We had an alphabet scavenger hunt with our cameras. We each had to try to take a picture of something that started with every letter of the alphabet. If we were both able to go through the alphabet, each of us had to list three things that the other had to have taken a picture of during the day as a tie breaker.

As it turned out, we both missed the letter "k" and "n" but I won the tie breaker.

Does anybody recognize the lady with the microphone?

Of course he was the first one we ran into.

Anyone ever stop to take a picture of this?
Walt and Mickey

or this?

This is one of our favorite shows to watch.
Billy Hill and the Hillbillies

We were staked out at one of our favorite places to watch the parade when this caught my eye. It was just bobbing up and down over the crowd. I thought it was funny, don't know why...
Floating above the crowd

I saw a few of these seeing eye dogs in training throughout the park.

It wasn't until the parade that I learned that the Narnia movies were a Disney production. Here is Prince Caspian. I haven't even seen the first one yet.

Thing was she got more cheers from the crowd than Prince Caspian.
and the crowd cheers!



This picture is for the Yee family in Hawaii, New Mexico and Arizona. Hope you are all well!

May Downtown Art Walk

Every second Thursday of each month Downtown LA has an Art Walk. It was started by the Arts, Aesthetics, and Culture Committee (AAC) of the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council (DLANC) in 2003.
Jolene and I have joined Jim, Celia and Shannon twice now and there is always a great crowd. Here are some pictures from this month's walk...

decapitating parking meters
when the pigs blew the whistle like Winslow"

"And there's blue sky breaking,
Through the edge of the night.
I can see the light,
Oh, I can see the light."

Playground by Outfield

"I'm alone and I'm lost in this playground.
The lights are down on me.
All alone and afraid in this playground.
The city never sleeps"
