Dan, Noonie and I went to a late lunch at Manhattan Pier and then walked down the pier. Then we drove down to Redondo Pier and got some yogurt and walked around the stores there. Noonie actually stayed the night. And the next day we both worked on our computers (me, job hunting; her, actual work), went shopping at TJMax, lunch at Chipotle and then she was on her way to her next gig in Santa Monica. These are the times I will treasure with my pal now that we are 3-1/2 hours away. We email, text, call once in awhile, but to be able to BE together is the best.
