welcome, welcome, welcome!


Oh, yes ~ I have admired Andrew McCutchen for quite a few years
and now he is a Giant.  I know his fans in Pittsburgh are grieving
today, but we celebrate and wonder if he will play center, left or
right field. And what will his number be? It is almost time for
pitchers and catchers to report...

brunch at the supper club

Pamela, Joe and your Blogger

We celebrated Joe's birthday at the Hillside Supper Club yesterday. I
asked the waitress to cut up my French toast because of the cast which
I am still contending with. That worked well. It was a lovely, long
get-together with just a sprinkling of gossip. So nice of my friends
to come to my nabe so I didn't have to travel far.

two old and trusted friends


We watched the new David Letterman "Needs no Introduction" program
on Netflix and it was so refreshing to be with such an intelligent and
thoughtful president. My, how we miss Barack Obama. Great TV!

walking along The Creek

Amazon brick & mortar store

Puma meets her mouse match

Yesterday Carlini and I had a good long walk to/fro his home to
downtown Walnut Creek where I finally got to see an Amazon
store. Even though they helped put so many of us out of business
it just felt so great to be in a bookstore again. I bought a Fire Stick
for our TV, but was tempted to buy about 20 books. It is a most
vibrant community out there in the East Bay. Who knew?

not her cup of miso


Unbeknownst to us the Blogmaid doesn't like Japanese food, but
Husbando and I slurped ramen at Fumi Curry on Mission Street
yesterday after a busy morning at his doc's and his shopping at
Trader Joe's. (I relaxed outside TJ's with a Peet's latte and my
phone.) Blogmaid was kind enough to meet us for lunch, but was
forced to stay hungry. Still so nice seeing her again and she
re-braided my hair which remains a problem due to dominant
hand being somewhat difficult. But hey, you already know that...

before storming the Bastille


I spent all day at Fromm ~ in the morning we had a relaxing introduction to
the Wonders of Science and then the French Revolution in the afternoon.
There are no USF students currently so we enjoyed our sandwiches in
front of the big fake fireplace in the student union. A lovely way to live
with or without two arms. My, they were a blood thirsty bunch back in
France in the 1790's. Heads a rollin'.....

surprising heroics


DiFi made us proud yesterday by releasing the 312 page document from
the committee. Our Senator is not one to break rules normally but she
did so yesterday. "Sunshine is the best disinfectant" ~ an old truism.
