Harold’s personal tailor, Judy, thought that that he ought to have an aviator’s cap for those long “Magic Vespid” trips. So Judy sat down at her sewing machine and whipped up an adorable cap that matches his scarf. I set out to make him some goggles (out of milk jug screw-on caps and almost see-thru vinyl plastic container lids) and with the help of some hot glue, a dremmel and black cord… voila! Adorable, non?

So where did the Magic Vespid take us this Labor Day Weekend? Lompoc, of course… the city of flowers and mural art. About an hour above Santa Barbara and an hour below San Luis Obisbo… off the 101 sits Lompoc… not quite on the ocean… but right near Buellton and Solvang.

Harold spent a lot of time in garden-ey areas whilst visiting. Judy’s Mom’s garden and a lovely Garden Nursery called Rolling Hills in Buellton. If you want to see some photos of Harold’s trip, head over to Squid Row Mama’s Flickr set entitled Harold!
