opened March 7th and I haven't been working at the deYoung at all, but
I did yesterday, and appreciated it for the first time. I will return. There
are fifty-five paintings including Sargent (above), Monet, Degas,Vermeer
and Gauguin. It was a bit crowded because it was the last Bouquets to
Art day, and by now I'm used to solo gallery visits, so the show is back on
my To Do list. Closing May 31st - visit this if you can.

|an Atheist booth!|
|a convention of big, black dogs|
|San Diego celebration too - not just SF|
few of my discoveries that sunny day in the park. Why is that I can sit and
observe when on vacation but at home I always have to be "doing"?

|my hotel was located in Little Italy|
|the Harborview Hotel (with my view of parking lot in back)|
again this morning. I have been working all week but today is a day off
to catch up with Costco, the gym, the nap and then I have class tonight.
That is the shot in the arm that Ellen and I need currently. I now have a
new character named Lori who used to live in San Diego.

Mantel (who knows so much) and she suggested that I start with
Every Day is Mother's Day written back in 1988 (I think). I put
the book on my LindaKindle2® and have been reading it slowly
and enjoying it tremendously. It is dark, funny and tragic and very
well-written, so I'll try some more of Hilary's writing now.

a great time at the beautiful stadium Saturday night. The dome in the distance
is the new Library where Tanya works and it is impressive and welcoming.
She took me on a quick tour before the game. Then the sun goes down and
the lights of the city come on and it's still warm in San Diego - very special.
See the orange square in the bottom photo? That is an electric SF logo! Sorry
the photo is so poor, but I knew you would want to see that. And of course
the location is ideal, right downtown where the action is.

|Tanya and Scott|
fact that other cities have reasonable restaurant prices and such was the
case at the Queenstown on Columbia Street. I had walked by this house
with wide and shady porches (on the front and side) on a previous walk.
We three had our pre-baseball dinner there on Saturday. Burgers, fries and
and a "Mexicoke" for me. I did love all the walking in San Diego...no
hills, mostly wide sidewalks and surprisingly few other walkers. Some
small cottages and big old houses amidst tall city buildings - I'll save
those pix for later. I have a busy work week starting today because it's
the dreaded Bouquets to Art - thankfully I'm out at the Legion where it
will be business as usual. Quiet business, I hope.
