Skeletons In The Closet

Things being the way they are, I'm rarely frivolous with money or time these days. However, today was an exception. Eric & I decided to complete New Year's Resolution # 1 on my list. Visit the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office Gift Shop, aka Skeletons In The Closet.

I had never been to the Coroner's office before, thank goodness, and certainly today's business was only of the funny kind. But I know that my words are not what you are interested in. You want to see the pictures. So without further ado, I present our field trip.

Welcome to the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office.

Parking is by permit only. Get your permit at the Receptionist's Desk.
Administrative Building. This is not where the Receptionist is located. We found out the hard way.
Ah, finally. The main building.
And at last... the parking permit!
Skeletons in the Closet. The Gift Shop.
They do carry a large assortment of stuff!

But don't write a bad check for it.

Or they might send you downstairs.

Claudia, guess what they were advertising in the Gift Shop!?!?! This one's for you, babe.
Yes, I really visited the Coroner's Gift Shop. The proof is in the picture. And also in the commemorative Beach Towel to remember the day by, although I admit that the "Body Fluids" Water Bottle was my sentimental favorite.

And the neon sign in the first picture spelled judgment wrong...Sigh. OK, so they spell it judgement in England, but here in the good old USA, the word is judgment!

Laura, remember when we went to the Latin district and saw all the Day of the Dead stuff? Very cool!
