how l-o-n-g until November?

This is the nastiest and worst presidential campaign ever. Everyone knows
that this blog loves HRC and I don't know how she can withstand the
absurd attacks from numb nuts Trump. I just want to go hide until my
ballot arrives in the mail, but of course I keep watching and reading and
getting all pissed off every single day. Grrrrrrrrrrrr. Be brave, Hillary...

yet another lunch

Gini and I were able to sit out in the patio at Starbelly (Market and 16th St.)
and she insisted on treating since I am newly retired. So far I've done VERY
nicely with this gifty-lunch celebration thing and I am grateful and also
in need of the gym today. I had the French toast with a side of b-a-c-o-n.

reading and enjoying more

The Nest was a retirement gift and I am enjoying it thoroughly. GREAT
scenes of NYC and Brooklyn and really fun characters in this family
with four adult children bickering over money, as so many families do.
Yes, indeed I do recommend it!

balmy alley

It's been quite a few years since I've had the time and/or energy to walk in
Balmy Alley here in the Mission. It is still as fantastic and colorful as
ever and there were many appreciative art lovers with cameras. This all started
back in the 70's and thank goodness it just gets better.

do not miss this!

Stranger Things reminds me a lot of Stand By Me with a whimsical
touch of E.T.  A small town in Indiana back in the 80's. Winona Ryder
is a single mother raising two boys and suddenly weirdness arrives
in many forms. There are eight episodes on the Flix® but we can only
watch one at a time because the show is so INTENSE.

green women & thai food

My retirement lunch yesterday was deeeee-lightful and I'm grateful to Linda
for treating me out here on Taraval-in-the-fog. We talked of many things
and I ate too much and had a really, really nice time. I recommend Vanida
Thai Kitchen to one and all.
