Great Plotnik didn't seem to mind...well, maybe a little. We also had two
Tiapos dogs (Dexter and Olivia) and waaaaaaaaay too much food, all of it
delicious. Thanks to Chef Sarah for letting us take over her delightful home.
Oh yes, we did some reading and commenting too - how lucky am I?

stop in to see if I can find that unexpected perfect bargain place so Ginger
can move here from Pleasanton. Ha! Here is one at 26th and Mission, not
the greatest spot in SF. It is new and does feature this deck, but we know
from experience that one doesn't use a deck very often here in the wind
and fog. It's a brand new condo, bright and sunny, one bedroom - all yours
for $800,000. I despair, she despairs. And it's probably been snapped up
by now by someone with a fistful of cash. Sigh.

book entitled Quiet Paris. I like how it's set up with the different
categories (museums, libraries, cafes, bookshops, etc.) and then in
the back the author, Siobhan Wall, indexes all the places according
to arrondissement. Beautiful color photographs. I am grateful.

visit any kitties. But I did say hello to Nola and her four pups, only one
of whom has her markings and is clearly her fave. She is known as
Fierce Mom and we all keep our distance until her litter is bigger and
a bit more independent.

Once in a while it really hits
people that they don't have to
experience the world in the way
they have been told to.
Yesterday I worked the short and boring morning shift at the DY,
then I met Dancing Jen for coffee and some pre-planning. We are
both getting excited. We leave on October 8th and it appears that I
won't be missing any Giants post-season excitement. We decided
to go to the opera and the cemetery. See? We do have our list started.
