If I get a ticket for dangerous driving.... I will not contest!
Photography while driving is as sure to cause an accident as texting - do not attempt.

  1. Linda. I am having a basil gin martini tomorrow night! I had a drink at the Left Bank restaurant here with basil, but it was too sweet. This sounds so good. Love basil anything.

    Very cool car. Remember," Herbie Rides Again?" I think I saw that or something like, "Superdad," with a beatle for one of my first walk-in movies in 3rd grade. Those bugs are so darn cute. Very So. Cal.

    How are you doing? I am always tempted to snap photos and drive too!


    1. Hello Kim! Thanks for asking, I'm doing well. :-)

      Too sweet is a problem with most martinis.

      Which got me to thinking about one I've had at White Bark in the Westin in Mammoth Lakes. Vodka, cucumber and Jalapeno - yum!

      And cocktails from the list at Little Dom's in LA / Los Feliz.... must find a reason to go there again.


  2. Love basil always and truly, will have to try it in a martini. Sounds like a splendid summer sip!

    1. There are "martini days" when this is the only one that will quench my thirst!


Hello! Your comments are the interaction I look forward to while writing my posts.
Cheers! Linda
