a quick binge


Very well done, in my opinon. Ten short episodes now streaming through
Amazon Prime ~ a couple in their 40's having marital problems. (Stop
me if you've heard that before.) State of the Union allows us to meet
with the couple in a little pub right before their therapy session. In one
meet-up they argue about "Call the Midwife", a TV program she likes
and he doesn't. Written by Nick Hornby, starring Rosamund Pike, Chris
O'Dowd and British humor.

Karl, you're back!


It was with great joy last night that I watched Karl the Fog return to our
hot city. That meant better sleep and a cool down for people, animals,
plants and (I hope) tempers. Residents of SF don't have the hated air
conditioning, we just rely on Karl and he is dependable after a three or
four day max heat wave. Whoooosh.

down to the dock of the Bay



I had a good walk down Market Street after the dental appointment yesterday
morning. It is hot here. Sigh. Pat and I had coffee under the ginkgo trees
in the Plaza, but first I had to sit and appreciate the Bay. Cooler today, whoosh.

this was fun


I met Kumail Nanjiani on Silicon Valley (HBO) and now I am also a fan
of Issa Rae. The Lovebirds is a short movie on Netflix ~ a couple near
break-up get into a scary murder mystery situation and they dash about
NYC and I enjoyed escaping for an hour and a half and you might too.

back to this beauty


I was forced to leave my TV Saturday night in order to snap this sunset.
Please know that I did not enhance or edit this photograph one iota. And,
as usual, it was even more enchanting standing at my back window than
it is here. Summer begins now.

my new mask ~ now what?


One needs a wardrobe of masks these days and I bought this in a little
shop on Valencia Street the other day on a walk. Well, not in the shop,
they were set up in the doorway. It says so much (I think).

Crissy minus the three P's



It's been about twelve weeks since Ginger and I walked along the bay at
Crissy Field. Yesterday: no parking, no picnics and the bathrooms were
closed. I brought a thermos of coffee and we sat on a bench and had a
lovely day. We wore masks (except while sipping coffee and eating strudel
and enjoyed dog and people watching. Always Bill's favorite place, so
he was with us in spirit.
