Now. . .you would think getting your very own Hollywood Star
would be “extra, extra special”. . .right?

hmmmm. . .well. . .there are sixteen BLOCKS of these “Stars”
lining both sides of the street. . .whoop tee doo is what I thought. . .

if you breathe (and generate a certain number of $$$$$$ signs)
I guess you get one. . .’cause I’m tellin you. . .

some of the folks names I saw all glittered up
were not really all that special (in my opinion – you understand)

by the time we made it back around to explore the handprints/footprints further
this is how the courtyard looked. . .LOL! 

Wall to Wall Tourists. . .extremely entertaining. . .

at this point, we all decided we had pretty much had our fill for the day. . .

We came. . .we saw. . .we did NOT necessarily conquer. . .
but we sure had fun trying!

See you next time at the Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach. . .whoooo weee. . .

’til then,
