Miami, Florida - August 20, 2010 (12:10am)   All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown) and the sky is gray (and the sky is gray). I’ve been for a walk (I’ve been for a walk) on a winter’s day (on a winter’s day). I’d be safe and warm (I’d be safe and warm) if I was in L.A. (if I was in L.A.). California dreamin’ (California dreamin’) on such a winter’s day. Stopped in to a church, I passed along the way. Well I got down on my knees (got down on my knees) and I pretend to pray (I pretend to pray). You know the preacher likes the cold (preacher likes the cold), he knows I’m gonna stay (knows I’m gonna stay). California dreamin’ (California dreamin’) on such a winter’s day. [Flute solo].

We are at Little Hoolie’s Sports Bar & Grill, which happens to be one of my favorite places to hang out at. I am surrounded by the beautiful twins from the band Gypsy Queen. Just a few minutes earlier, they put on an absolutely fabulous performance and I was delighted to see them sing and do their magic once again. In this photo, I am in dreamland, my eyes are almost closed and I am reminiscing of the fun vacation I took in California back in 1985 with Rhonda the surfer girl (who was my girlfriend and neighbor back then) right after Paula and Pamela sang California Dreamin’. This was also the same year that Rhonda and I saw Gypsy Queen for the first time at Rollo’s, which was very close to where we lived. Look at Pamela’s eyes: I think she is absolutely mesmerized, wouldn’t you say? (Nikon D50)
