“I Was a Drunk by Age Sixteen” A SUPERB ARMCHAIR VACATION
“It was 1950 and two days after my sixteenth birthday. My family and I had just finished lunch, and my head was pounding. South Bend in the fall is my favorite time; I could always rest my mind in the calm of the season and the beauty of the trees. If I could only…” Lloyd Haynes—Taken from The Lloyd Haynes Story

A CALIFORNIA TREASURE

Old Hollywood glamour lives on at the historic Art Deco hotel established in 1933. I was completely captivated  and carried back in time! 

In the late 1930’s, the Hollywood elite flocked to the beach to escape the valley heat, and The Georgian Hotel’s popularity grew. As time passed, the basement restaurant of this gorgeous Santa Monica hotel earned a great deal of attention. One of the last strongholds of the Prohibition Era and considered a  Speakeasy, the Georgian hosted dozens of film stars, industry moguls and a few notorious. “Bugsy” Siegel, Clark Gable, Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, and Carole Lombard. Later, Rose Kennedy, (JFK’s mother) would spend her summers at The Georgian entertaining Hollywood royalty and journalists in the hotel lobby. 

Great food, service, and ambiance…this is a California treasure! 😀 ❤

A MOMENT WITH YOU

SHARING A MOMENT WITH YOU  
Dear Carolyn,

I read your book twice. There are so many new and interesting insights that, for me, twice was required. I was caught up in the spell of your perception and your experiences with Lloyd.

Since the Grant/Haynes friendship was rooted in the earlier, leaner years when struggle was our context and we were dependent upon each other’s ability to consult and problem solve together, and when we cherished our beach parties, teeming with kids shared picnic baskets, and always, music, strangers and friends.

Your book is a gift to those who knew and loved him. I recommended it to four others who have read it. The book sheds light upon the fulfillment years for you and Lloyd. I personally thank you for the book and for the call to alert me to it.
