Standing at the cash register at Frank's Famous near Montrose on Wednesday, Roger Frey can't focus on ringing up my sale. It's not just because I keep peppering him with questions. It turns out he spent the wee hours of the morning roasting and carving a whole slew of turkeys, and multiple side dishes, for customers like me who didn't want to do the work themselves. The chef is spent. His eyes are bleary. He jokes with me that he'd just as soon eat an In-N-Out burger than look at another turkey come dinner time Thursday, but that he's already been forewarned he'll be expected to do the honors of carving one of the big birds for his mother-in-law's table.

Sunday dinner: The phrase conjures up images of a yesteryear, Norman Rockwell-esque feast welcoming family and friends. Today however, living in the Concorde set (aka "Jet Set" in previous years) (not to be confused with the "Jetson" set, in spite of similarities) gives generations multiple options to divide across the globe. It also makes it possible for us to become lost to one another. But... have you noticed? As with many things retro, there has been a growing movement of late towards reclaiming traditional Sunday dinner.

Spring has sprung and so have the high desert wildflowers that are growing more abundant as each day passes. I have often made the wildflower pilgrimage to see the golden glow of the fields of California poppies (our official state flower) lupin and a myriad of other beautiful little flowers that just don’t want to be corralled into formal garden spaces. The Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve staff is observing each day as the high desert comes alive with wildflowers.

The La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation received a generous boost in their fund-raising efforts late last week thanks to the Korean Parents Committee. In a low key ceremony Nov. 9 attended by only three participants, Janna Gosselin, president of the Foundation, was handed a large ceremonial check in the amount of $45,482.64. "Due to language and cultural barriers [we felt] that many parents weren't aware of what the Foundation did," said Heaga Kim, president of Korean Parents, who was on hand to help present the check.

Guess what? I'm another year older today. My, these birthdays just sneak up on a person when you're not looking. I must admit, however, I always like the way I feel when it is my "special" day because it is just that - special. I share this day with my twin sister, Elaine, who lives in Santa Barbara. We were surprise May baskets for my mother and father, lo those many years ago. Nobody, not even the doctor, knew two babies would arrive that day. I came first and there was much joy on my arrival.

My garden loved all the rain we got when February came to an end with a series of storms. The leaves on my camellia bushes seem shinier, the azalea bushes are abundant with glorious blooms and the lemon tree is very heavy with fruit. It looks like I'm going to have plenty of juice to freeze for summer's lemonade. Last weekend I basked in the warmth as I plumped the pillows on my favorite swing in the back patio and settled in to read a book and listen to bird song. An occasional butterfly would momentarily distract me from the pages of my book.

Though Meatball, the celebrity foothills bear, has moved on, La Cañada Flintridge residents aren't lacking for ursine encounters. Christina and Jaime Corvalan found that out Saturday night when the security system at the couple's Hampstead Road home caught footage of a large black bear prowling their property before raiding their trash bins for a late-night snack. Christina Corvalan said she and her husband heard a commotion outside at around 10:30 p.m., then saw on their multi-camera home security system that they had an unexpected visitor.

Santa, that man who wears a red suit and carries a bag chock-full of toys, is getting ready for his yearly mad dash around the world in just two days. My grandchildren are very excited. They wrote their letters to him weeks ago and are hoping that they will find what they asked for under the tree on Christmas morning. Of course my little grandchildren in England - Aidan, Lucan, and Morgan - will get to open their presents way before their Palo Alto cousins, Catherine and Ryan.
