My goodness, I certainly wasn’t ready for summer last week when the thermometer soared to 94 degrees in the shade. All sorts of heat records were broken in and around the valley a week ago today. I noticed that folks were getting a little cranky about the heat. At least it cooled off for the weekend. It doesn’t look like more rain is right around the corner, but that could be a surprise from Mother Nature, too. . Oakmont Country Club was spruced up for spring and provided a lovely setting for the recent La Cañada Thursday Club’s eco-friendly “Goin’ Green” benefit fashion show.

The clubhouse garden was showing off its spring finery with daffodils, tulips, roses and camellias all in bloom in perfect floral choreography.

On Monday I traveled from record-breaking 105-degree heat in Tucson into 55-degree coolness and rain in La Cañada Flintridge. What a quick change, but a very welcome one. I went to visit Jackie Manning, a former longtime La Cañadan. Jackie and her late husband, Whipple, were actively involved in our La Cañada social scene when they lived here. Jackie, an extraordinary host and tour guide, led me to a lot of surprise wonders in this desert city. We packed a lot of sight-seeing and cultural experiences into a short amount of time.

Our city's Fiesta Days celebrations last weekend were bigger and better than ever! There was one wonderful event after another. I liked it all, but my absolute favorite was Sunday night's fireworks show, sponsored by the Allen Lund Co., which is based right here in town. It is our very own "big bang" of the weekend, with glorious colors lighting up the night sky. There were lots of "oohs" and "ahhs" from the huge crowd that had gathered for the evening-long festivities in Memorial Park, which also featured music by the terrific La Cañada High School Jazz Band.

It was a lovely warm March day when the La Cañada Thursday Club held its annual fashion show luncheon. The event was a rousing welcome to spring and many of the 200 ladies attending the event were wearing their best chapeaux. It was fun to see the different hats - small "fascinators" such as what one might wear to have tea with Princess Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, to floppy-brimmed hats of bright colors just meant for an afternoon outing on a sunny day. Gracella Gibbs , who chaired the event, was everywhere at once and under her expert direction, the presentation was as silky smooth as some of the flowers adorning hats.

Labor Day has come and gone, and we are getting back into our autumn schedules. Cross-town rivals USC and UCLA have started the college football season, keeping tailgaters busy creating menus of tasty food and beverages that make this tradition so much fun. Kids are back in school and loading up their backpacks with books and homework. Right on track is the weather, which is always sizzling hot when school begins. There's something new this year: Mother Nature added a different ingredient, humidity, with an active monsoon-like atmosphere and threatening, rain-laden clouds.
