Monday Off

You're right. I'm dreaming.

A good place to dream might be a bench overlooking the "ball field" at Hahamongna Watershed Park. I walk Boz there often but we've never seen anyone playing ball, unless you include throwing a ball for a dog.

Hahamongna was a chief of the Tongva Indians who were living here when Gaspar de Portola showed up in the late 18th Century. As his tribe became Christianized (and indentured), Hahamongna changed his name to Pascual, which means "born on Easter," or "child of Easter." I couldn't find "Hahamongna" on any of the baby names websites.
