WALK! They say it helps you lose weight. It's true, I've lost some 25 lbs. but that's another story. Every morning my dogs, Rocky & Luna, take me on a fast-pace, get-out-of-breath, walk.

Yip, my hood is that festive, we got the colorful Dia de los Muertos Altars through out my community. That's thanks to the Muertos Festival put together by the Sherman Heights Community Center and the Historic Barrio District.

Neighbors are encouraged to set up their altars and ofrendas... and many do. Thank you vecinos!
|Native American Altar|
If you wan to see some mega Altares, make sure to stop by the Festival this Saturday, November 1st. I'll be vending too, so you can always stop by the Wink booth and say hello (and snatch your wink!).
In any case, I hope the pics of the altars right around my block are enough to brighten your day.

Perhaps, you get motivated to set up your own altar in your front lawn. If you do, make sure to send us pics. We would love to see them.

As always, rock your wink!
