Double-Double with a chocolate milkshake and fries please. Oh, sweet calories! Next, we cruised down to the Harbor View Inn in Santa Barbara.
Tomorrow, I will start my trip! First stop will be in L.A. to visit my dear friend Malcolm for a few days before he drops me off at the airport to head to Narita Airport in Tokyo. I’ve been running around today to take care of some of the last minute details. So here’s the
