Sierra Madre Blvd, Christmastime
|Driving Eastbound on S.M. Blvd. with Keith.|
December in Sierra Madre at the corner of Sierra Madre Blvd. and Lima. They certainly are in the holiday spirit at Kentucky Fried Chicken. Back before it morphed into KFC ; look at all those syllables!
It always seemed out of a place in Sierra Madre. But it was there for a long time - but is now, to use a Kurt Vonnegut phrase; Defunct.
This was my first winter in the Hotel Shirley so my guess is K and I were returning from Pasadena after dining some place a little bit tastier. There were few eateries in S.M. back then.
As the rain falls, I prepare my dedicated Sierra Madre Pages. History half-remembered, wholeheartedly idiosyncratic - with no skimping on the syllables as prescribed by the Piedmont School of Thought.
