On Sunday, Aug. 27, members of the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada gathered at the lovely estate home of Dr. and Mrs. Paul Toffel, who graciously open their grounds annually for this event. Social chair Harriett Hammons and her committee of Linda Magarian and Patsy Christianson set the tables under the oaks and deodars with red, white and blue table cloths decorated with lovely understated centerpieces of camellia leaves and white sea shells. Clyde Hemphill and Bob Wallace set up and tended the bar while trusty treasurer Howard Backer kept track that everyone's drinks were tallied.

We are going full steam ahead into a new year. As usual, my lament is: where in the heck did last year go? I?m another year older and my bones are feeling the pull of gravity. Suffice it to say I just can?t pick up a 2-year-old who is as tall as a 4-year-old and weighs more than 40 pounds with the same ease I did when I was in my 20s. Two of my grandchildren just left after a spectacular week of Christmas magic. Oh my, I did have a good time with Cate and Ryan, children of my daughter Heather.

University of Southern California mascot Tommy Trojan and his trusty steed Traveler enjoyed sunny weather Wednesday at Descanso Gardens for a visit with the Kiwanis Club of La Cañada Flintridge. Traveler's owner and trainer, Joanne Asman, was the guest of honor at the weekly luncheon, where she entertained members with stories of the 19-year-old Andalusian gelding's training and performances. Tales included how Asman, a Burbank resident, trained the horse not to be startled by Stanford's tree mascot by exposing him to a moving replica tree.

The excitement of little ones can hardly be contained as the time draws nigh for Santa Claus's visit. Yes, I'm even running on high octane too -- after all, this is my favorite holiday. The other evening I could hardly believe my ears when I heard the clip-clop of a horse's hooves traveling down my street. I ran to the window and saw the Montrose Shopping Park's bright red trolley and its trusty steed passing by. The trolley was all lit up and it was quite magical as its passengers waved hello.

Sometime in the past decade, our daughter pointed out that cellphones are so good at keeping us plugged into everything imaginable, including the time of day, that wristwatches were nothing more than antiquated accessories. She stopped wearing hers and I, like the ewe that I can be, followed along. These twin habits of relying on a cellphone for reliable time information and following others off of precipices put me in places at the wrong time while on vacation this month. A family friend accompanied me on the drive across the desert a week ago Sunday as we headed to our Sedona place.

Valley View by Fereva Many (many) years ago when shopping at a Navy or Army discount outlet was cool (Navy had the best bell bottoms, obviously) (No, NOT that "Old Navy" -but as usual, I digress-) I bought a pair of men's size five, black rubber cement work boots. Knee-high, and actually pretty cool looking. A man's size five translates into a woman's size seven, and how many guys do you know with feet that dinky? Technically, I wore a size six in women's and had to wear two thick tube socks to fill the boots.

Last week we were shopping for clothes for the girls when, out of the clear blue, Kaitzer exclaimed, "Joe, I need a new knife!" Hmm! We've been married for years and I never knew Kaitzer carried a knife. Sometimes we learn about another through serendipitous moments. I thought only guys carried knives. However, I could readily understand one's need for a knife, as I've carried a pocketknife since I was 6. You have your wallet, your keys and your trusty pocketknife. When I'm in the woods I take my old K-Bar and my Gurkha knife.

Thoughts From Dr. Joe by Dr. Joe Puglia On fields of dreams, they bring their dreams carrying baseballs, bats, and gloves. Heading to stadiums, fields, parks and empty lots, they play out once again the simple drama of a simple game: you throw the ball, you catch the ball, and you hit the ball. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, and sometimes it rains. Think about that for awhile. I have always loved baseball and have loved the Yankees since DiMaggio. I remember my first game at Yankee Stadium.
