Dancing Jen and John's Grill

 We had a lovely pre-birthday lunch at John's Grill (outside) yesterday. Lots of catch-up and always so great to see Dancing Jen and to hear about her never dull life. And of course we all know how much I love to be downtown. Today is International Women's Day ~ we all celebrate!

Slow Streets Sanchez mural

 Here is Amos Goldbaum, local artist, celebrating his Sanchez Street line drawing. The project was funded by the Friends of Slow Sanchez and I will get over there ASAP to take my own iPhone photos. Adam is a resident of Noe Valley and we see his work all over. But this? Wow, what a project. Oh, and it is only a block or two from Doug and Barb's home on the now-famous Slow Sanchez Street.

to Paris with JOY

 I started watching this hilarious show and then stopped for some reason. Holidays? Covid? Cat? I returned this week and now am loving Call My Agent all over again. Such fun, so French. Thank you Netflix for this creative journey with all these me/me/me actors and agents.

to the big Botanical Garden

 The rhododendrons are starting to fall now, but it was still an excellent and beautfiul walk on Wednesday, when I met Terri for some catch-up out at Golden Gate Park in the Botanical Garden. This is such an amazing place and FREE for SF residents. I will return, and soon.

an amazing woman

RIP dear Jennie Politis. An amazing woman who will never be forgotten. I wish we could sit at your little kitchen table one more time and have some tea. A long, good life. I am glad you spoke your parents native Greek when you were dying. I am so glad I knew you.

who let the dogs in?

 Yesterday Ginger and I went to play at the brand new dog run in Golden Gate Park. Posh. As it should be. We parked easily at 36th and Fulton and did some serious dog watching before heading south to North Lake and walking there. That is a wild overgrown lake, completely different than pristine Stowe Lake. A delight ~ filled with wild flowers and little animals. Then coffee and home grown coffee cake sitting in the sun (you can barely see the lake, but it is there) at the one picnic table. Excellence.

private public transportation

 Except for the dentist, I had a delightful downtown SF yesterday. Took the #27 Bryant (top photo) and BART (third) for the home trip. Sparkling clean. I am such a huge fan of public transit. It's been a year and yes, I was very happy. Did a little sightseeing and stopped for lunch outside on my walk home from BART. I do feel that life is starting to return to what some might call normal.
