* The Traveling Salesman
Did you hear the one about the traveling salesman who was visiting Newport Beach and without prior notice suddenly needed a clean dress shirt for an evening sales meeting? He went to Macy’s at Fashion Island and paid full price!
* Mimi’s Restaurant
My wife, Mimi, has a favorite restaurant: Mimi’s. The food is good, dependable and reasonable. Going there for lunch or dinner also makes us feel and look younger.
* More Mimi’s
Another reason we like Mimi’s is that the parking lot makes our aged car look newer.
* The LA Angels of Anaheim have been playing so well that even ESPN, with its blatant east coast bias, mentioned them once last week.
* Jerry Dipoto, General Manager of the Angels, pulled another rabbit out of the hat when he plucked top gun relief pitcher Huston Street from the San Diego Padres. If he keeps this up Dipoto should be a strong candidate for the GM of the Year Award.
