The Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942

    • February 19th, It was my first time going to the Great Los Angeles Air Raid 0f 1942.  It's a great, fun historic reenactment of the LA air raid that occurred in '42 when an unidentified flying object was reported. No one knew if it was a Japanese war plane or an actual UFO? So to celebrate the historic Fort MacArthur in San Pedro, California holds a dance and WWII reenactment. I apologize for not posting this in my 'Upcoming Events', I've been distracted and yeah lazy too.  At the last minute I didn't even know if I was going to go, it was pouring buckets! Eventually we went and I'm glad I did, I met a new people made new friends, checked out guests wonderful outfits and had fun! Though it was so cold and rainy, hopefully next years will be bright, warm and sunny; which would make for much better photos too. Hopefully by next year my swing dancing skills would be better as well! I was stepping all over my friends toes, haha!

All us gals were soo envious we wanted one! Her entire ensemble was made by her brother Mr. Tiny of Wacky Tacky . Amazing, what isn't to love?
