Before our rich uncle moved to the Tarzana area of Los Angeles, he was in a big apartment down by the lake, just a few miles away from our parents’ house.
He invited our siblings as well as I over every single week, hosting small barbecues in the backyard. His above-ground, metal-framed swimming pool had a custom wooden deck built around it with a small water slide linked. Everyone in our family enjoyed swarming our uncle’s apartment while I was in the Spring as well as Summer seasons when the temperatures warmed up enough for us to swim in his pool or in the big lake a few steps behind his back yard. It was a sad day when our uncle had to sell his lakeside apartment as well as transfer to Tarzana, CA because of work-related reasons. However, he received a raise from his supplier as well as managed to snag a apartment right on Ventura Boulevard despite the high cost of real estate in this coveted area of Los Angeles. Now our rich uncle spends his nights smoking joints as well as blunts of weed when he’s not tied up at the office. I visited him recently from our beach apartment in Flagstaff, AZ as well as took interstate 40 west until I reached interstate 15 in Barstow. Instead of driving through the town portion of Los Angeles, I took state roads 18 as well as 14 to get around the Angeles National Forest from the north. The drive to Tarzana was beautiful as well as I was delighted by the cannabis our uncle had in his apartment on Ventura Blvd. My trip to Tarzana was one of our most stress-free getaways in years!
