While at the Aliso Viejo Country Club for my husband’s company Christmas party this December, I stumbled upon these dandy Golf Rules Posters tacked to a bulletin board. I really found the drawings and scenarios amusing, but I am equally relieved to have been taught that I actually can’t mark my ball with a daisy. What a dunce, Nancy!
I have no sympathy for Ron in the second scenario, however. Nobody likes a poor sport – even if he does use polite vernacular such as, “Gee Whiz?!**” (Is that a questioning exclamation with an expletive at the end for good measure?)
When I decide to join a country club, it gives me tremendous peace of mind to know there are creative citizens out there that deeply care about teaching me golf etiquette with such brilliant posters.
Poor Clueless Nancy!
Gee Whiz Ron!
Speaking of dunces, look at these clowns monopolizing the photo booth at said party! Gee whiz!
Rule #1 of Photo Booths: Masquerade’s are Creepy.
Here is a photo we took at Elvira’s Restaurant in Tubac, Arizona last year. We go there about twice a year when visiting family. They always have unique, beautiful decor and I especially love the colorful blown glass covering the ceiling. In addition to the incredible ambiance, they have delicious Mexican food and margaritas.

You don’t often see one of these cute little cars driving down the streets of Irvine, dwarfed by Suburbans and Escalades. The bearded hipster driver of this gem was even in the right side driver seat.
You don’t see this level of coolness everyday in Orange County
In contrast, while in Newport Beach for a Halloween party last year, I saw this crazy vehicle pull up in all it’s glory.

Then, while in Lake Forest, I often see this spooky station wagon just lurking about.

Yesterday evening, I even saw a sweet Swiss Army truck with a Norwegian flag sticker on the driver side panel driving down El Toro Road in Lake Forest. I was instantly smitten! Unfortunately I didn’t capture a photo, as I was too busy driving and gawking. But I made a mental note that my next car will be a tricked out Swiss Army truck and I will buy it from Pinzgauer.com.
One of these Swiss Army trucks will be able to fit a family of five plus room for more!
These unique vehicles are proof that we do indeed have culture and character in Orange County!

Perusing through the FREE section outside the public library, I stumbled upon a stellar find. A Learn French record collection from 1959!! Who in the right mind could resist taking it home?!
The alternating voices of the male French teacher and the female who parrots the French phrases back are classic 1950s, reminiscent of the Mad Men era.
“Where is the dance club? Ou est la discotheque?” Female parrot: “Ou est la discotheque?” The French sounds extremely proper and upscale compared to the French instruction I had in high school and college. Perhaps I will be to conduct French lessons from my home office with these dandy records.
In all seriousness, I absolutely LOVE my Crosley record player. My last few purchases of music records at Urban Outfitter (Bon Iver and Adele) have also included a free digital download of the entire album, so it’s the obvious choice to buy the record. They look and sound amazing, bringing real character into the home office.
