RED & BLACK ‘70s EL CAMINO – I think your name is Rick.  I’m Rebecca, long blonde hair, wearing short shorts and Crazy shirt. You changed my flat tire, Laguna Canyon. I want to repay you – drinks and dinner (my treat) at Las Brisas any night.  #GoodReward

BRANAHOUGAN RIDING ACADEMY.  Equestrian training – horseback riding – scenic trails.  We have both English and Western saddles.

Riding instructor available – sign up for classes.  Come to our stables and have a look-see at our horses.  #NoHorsingAround

ALLEMANDE LEFT – Forming a square dance club – no need to bring a partner – singles group, not gender-specific.  If you are a caller or dancer, you’re invited to come, join our classic dance group.  Gents – wear Western attire, gals – skirts/dancing shoes.  #Pardners

LOST:  Large teddy bear named Rufus.  I left Rufus in a rental car (Enterprise? I think) at Los Angeles International Airport.  Please return; large reward. I have had Rufus for about 15 years and will not be able to sleep tonight without him.  #GeorgeConstructionGuy

TEATIME – Just like London’s Fortnum and Mason. Elegant three-tiered serving platter.  Finger sandwiches, scones with lemon curd and

clotted cream, beautiful array of sweets with your choice of 40 different types of tea.  Served 3 to 6 everyday.  #TeaForTwo

  1. As you can see, the Branahougan Family enjoys putting their fortunes into start-up businesses.

    Maybe they will begin a High Tea service somewhere in Laguna Beach. It would be a welcome addition to all the excellent restaurants already here.
