a little fuzzy...

...but you get the idea. This is in the women's bathroom at the Legion of
Honor. It's always a bit of a shock to see beautiful fresh flowers and then
I think back to the horrid days at Borders (and Barnes & Noble) when we
management folk were responsible for the upkeep of the bathrooms. So
many horror stories, I clearly remember one Sunday afternoon when I
cried in my office after a particularly disgusting clean-up. I do appreciate
the museums, I truly do.

love walked in


My three orange cats had been adopted, but check out these two. Oodles
is a poodle who was a mess when she came to us, but they just gave her a
cut and shampoo and she was feeling great on Monday. Katara is a big
love with a minor tummy ailment currently, but I think these two will
soon be in their forever homes. It's hello/goodbye at the SPCA.

the family gathers

Rob and John

G. dot Ceci returns
Rob and Sarah are here for just a couple of days, on their way up to golf
in Oregon. We met with John and Ceci last night at the North Beach
Restaurant - not the greatest food, but a fine table overlooking the busy
Stockton Street. The place was packed, North Beach was crowded with
regulars and tourists and a fine time was had by all. Next visitors will
be Lauren (sister to Ceci) and Nancy (mother of Ceci and Lauren)
with her husband Scott.  Separate visits, never equal...

are you watching?

Last night was the second episode of Indian Summers on PBS. It
is so physically beautiful. Even if we don't get all the sub-plots, it
is such a pleasure to watch. This all takes place when the British are
about to leave India, they just haven't realized it yet. Highly recommended!

I'll take three, please

I neglected to post this photo from last Monday. There is another
little orange head hidden up there in the Transamerica window.
We know I love the orange kitties and, in fact, Ellen has two: Salmon
and Roughy. Tomorrow is SPCA day already - I'll check these guys
out, but I have a feeling they are already in their forever homes...

car bnb

Everyone knows that there is no place to live in SF. Too many people
want to live in a too small city. Yesterday "the guy from Argentina"
(who is married to one of the women next door in the House of
International Women) told Husbando that someone had slept in his
beat-up old car the night before. The guest left him a thank you note
and $6.00. I'm sympathetic, but so glad that we have a garage.

the bride wore orange

 I worked with Kristin and Kevin at Borders about ten years ago and last night
we all gathered at Original Joe's in North Beach to celebrate their City Hall
marriage yesterday. It was a truly nice evening with a few tears and a lot of
laughter. The groom's name is Kevin McCarthy, so he is trending on social
media because of the conservative jerk who is running for Speaker of the House.
I felt honored to be part of the joyful party last night ~ the happy couple
will be off to Italy on Saturday.
