…….. and if you’d care to look over our right shoulders the white blur on the hill is the Hollywood sign!!!!
To say we were totally and utterly star struck and overcome would be a mahoooosive understatement, and robust self pinching and the pinching of each other ensued not for the first time …...….. just to make sure we really were in HOLLYWOOD ….. OMG!
We have to admit our pictures are few and far between (above left: me in Hollywood Boulevard!!!!) and NOT the best, due to our mahoooooosive excitement and looking for Simon Cowell …. just in case we had the opportunity to show him that we had “Talent” and “The X Factor” and that perhaps he could use his celebrity wiles to persuade us to stay in the US a little longer to see if our potential could be further explorerated!!
At the Chinese Theatre we looked everywhere for John Wayne’s footprints …… but sadly we couldn’t find them ….
…….. dreaming that one day perhaps we would be asked for our foot and handprints ……
….. and people would come to look for our star …..
Sadly, we didn’t bump into the aforementioned Mr. Cowell but as we had made some business cards before we left the UK, we scattered them with profuse abundance ….. in phone boxes, restrooms and on restaurant tables …. just in case……..
It was another wonderful, wonderful day, we even got to drive past the cemetery Michael Jackson is buried and drive down Rodeo Drive, looking at all the posh shops where you have to make an appointment just to go in …… a day we will never forget which was sadly over far too quickly ….. but we had another five hour drive back to Last Vegas. Nigel and Darrell were soon fast asleep in the back of the bus …… no doubt dreaming of where they wanted their stars to be ……. paddling in the Specific as Nigel called it ….. and wondering what had happened to Simon Cowell!
