October 20, 2023 – Alhambra, CA – Sunny Skies – Low 80s

Another pretty quiet night. I went down and got the same breakfast – corn flakes and a freshly made waffle.  It was still good the second time.  I did have a unusual problem this morning.  While eating at an outside table – to distance myself from other folks – one of the legs of my chair got stuck in the pool deck drain (as I tried to move my chair a bit closer to the table).  The leg collapsed and I went down like a ton of bricks – I landed on my hand and side but I was able to get back up by myself and finish breakfast.  No one came over to help but one guy did ask me if I was OK.  Back in the room, I found that I did not land that gracefully displaying scrapes on my left side and left arm.  I put some Neosporin on it but the area is red and tender.  

We decided to visit the Cemetery – Home of Peace – where most of the family is buried.  It’s usually a long ride from the Hollywood area but from Alhambra, it is just 15 minutes away via the streets.   We found all of the headstones (including Trude's) and I said Kaddish and El Molay Rahamim and we placed some stones on the headstones. 

We had leftovers for lunch in the room and then got ready to go to Noah’s place for Shabbat Dinner.

We went to Noah’s early to spend time with him and to meet his roommates.  

They all live in a terrific house in Pasadena about 10 minutes from the hotel.  There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms and a nice little backyard. We tried sitting out in the  I think that Noah has four roommates including Harper, whom we met last time we visited.  There is Levi and Kyle and Alex.  

The roomies are all very nice and the dinner was nice as well.  Noah made Kiddush and everyone seemed to know what was going on. Noah cooked Shells Alfredo and it was pretty good.  After dinner, some more of Noah’s friends came over along with their parents – it was parent’s weekend at Oxy.  We stayed and chatted for a while and then headed back to the hotel
