The rain that pounded the Southland on April 13 did not douse the high spirits of the guests who waded through the puddles to arrive at the 48th Pasadena Showcase House of Design. In fact, more than 200 guests in formal attire came to take a first glance at the grand La Cañada Flintridge mansion that was built in 1927 in a Spanish Colonial Revival style. I think this old house and its first owners, Margaret Kinkelin Robbins and her husband Hunter Savidge Robbins, would have been very excited to welcome these well-dressed guests to their beautiful home for a house-warming party.

Whew! Tax time is over. Certainly not my favorite time of the year. Actually, I get quite cranky. Of course there is not a darn thing to be done about it. Ben Franklin once wrote in a letter, "Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. " Amen, Ben. --- The best part of the last two weeks is that I learned a new word, luthier. A luthier is one who makes stringed instruments such as violin, viola, cello, guitar, harp and lute.
