I went to a yearly ‘20’s festival and unlike last year, I was able to get tickets to the Silent Films. Watched a Laurel & Hardy short, and Andy Gump short, and one whose name I can’t remember, haha. It’s a 2 day thing so I am probably going there tomorrow and catching a Buster Keaton short that I didn’t get to see.
And there was a fashion show. And other stuff which I will have to catch tomorrow.
And there’s a mausoleum where the family of the guy who used to own the land is buried. Haha! And they had a guided tour, and I went inside and it creeped me out because there are like 20 bodies resting there. And I asked the tour guide about Brown, that is, the guy who is and whose family is buried there if he was Irish, lol, only because the burial site seemed Catholic, and the tour guide told me no, he was English, but married a Mexican/Spanish woman and he converted to Catholicism hence the burial. Makes sense. Most of the local land here, think late 1800’s early 1900’s was owned by Spanish or English people.
Weird. I am so not a religious person, haha, but I am half Latino and culturally Catholic, and went I walked out of the Mausoleum, I did the father, the son, and holy ghost finger crossing across my face . I didn’t do it towards a God, but rather, just out of respect for the people resting there.
So, um, yeah, that was my day, how was your day?
