I was told by several friends that the new Getty Villa was “sold out” until June 06. I did some extensive internet hunting and heard a rumor that the Getty releases a few extra sneaky tickets every now and again on their website. I checked it for two weeks straight, every day and night, until BINGO! I hit the jackpot. What a perfect way to surprise my mom on her birthday with the golden tickets to the perfectly restored Malibu sea-view museum. The last time we were there together was when she chaperoned my second grade field trip! We were in total “zen mode” admiring the gleaming statues, down through the budding blooms and manicured lawns overlooking the Pacific Coast.
Isn’t my mother beautiful?
