the huell howser legacy is online!

Bookmarked Huell Howser Archives at Chapman University by an author

Gold has struck! For those who’ve never heard of the enthusiastic Huell Howser, he created a show that ran for years on California’s PBS stations which highlighted his trips and research to various locations around the state.

Because of his show, I visited a few places in the state that I would not have otherwise thought about or known. In October of 2017, for example, we went apple picking about a couple hours east of LA and it was a really nice way to get out of LA proper and enjoy one of the many things that California has.

If you want a taste of what kind of show he made, try the episode about the Hollywood Sign.

He left behind such a great legacy and now I can see more episodes that I missed through the years!

California

We spent a day at the San Diego Zoo yesterday before we drove up to LA. It certainly took about a full 6-7 hours of seeing animals. We probably could have spent more but our feet and bodies were tired! Three thumbs up for this zoo!

After we drove up to LA, we first stopped in Hollywood (again for me). What happens again? I ran into the ESPY award rehearsal. We stood outside for a few hours watching celebs go back into their limos and cars. Not as big as the Oscars however. This event was an ABC/ESPN event so most of the stars were ABC celebs. The biggest people we saw were Andy Dick, Bonnie Hunt, David Allen Grier, Teri Polo (Meet the Parents), and Ernie Hudson (Winston from Ghostbusters). There were lots of other people, half of whom I didn’t know, but I have pictures of most of them. If we had waited long enough or gone back tonight, we could have seen big names like Jim Belushi and other sports stars. I also heard that Mark Paul Gossalar (Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell) was there but didn’t see him!

I have a little picture gallery I made up to post online but can’t get Internet access from Jonathan’s laptop. So if I can at some point, I’ll be sure to upload some pics.
