new friend, old neighbor


 Nicole has lived in Bernal as long as I have but we only connected in the past couple of years doing left wing political work. She invited me to lunch yesterday which means I didn't have to worry about dinner and we had a pleasant time covering friends and family and our neighborhood.

13,146 steps



 It's been too long since I enjoyed (right word?) a really long walk, so yesterday I took off for Cortland Street and breakfast. Lots of hills, of course, and I was able to photograph the Bernal Heights rock which currently celebrates Ukraine. The huge stop sign on Cortland is on an apartment building and necessary the way some drivers zoom through our streets. A good day.

champagne and tapas



 Two of our neighbors are moving to Valencia, Spain, so Heidi and Rob produced this lovely party yesterday afternoon which meant, among other things, that I did not have to rustle up dinner. Their cat Ozzie is a delight and preferred the fireplace. I too have my fireplace going these days because our famous heavy Karl fog is upon us currently. I don't mind it the way I used to. Odd, that.

oooooh ~ Dark Winds


 Yesterday I had a delicious lunch over at Doug and Barb's and they recommended Dark Winds on Amazon Prime. Set in 1971 in the Navajo lands of New Mexico with the tribal police and FBI not working together very well. Based on Tony Hillerman's mystery novels. Excellence.

goodbye bun-bun


 Only Murders in the Building (Season Two) does not miss a beat as these three hapless sleuths return to run around, crack bad jokes and make me laugh. On Hulu and in NYC. Fun.

the beauty of SF



Back to the Botanical Gardens yesterday with Ginger and a thermos of coffee. What a treat with sunny weather featuring a perfect breeze. Still a few rhododendrons and poppies to admire. Then back home to memorize every word of the Jan. 6th hearings. Trump was (is) ruthless.
