City Living …

We went out the other night with Ken Beck, my old pal from Princeton to see some music at Amnesia … We enjoyed three great bands …

I’m not sure how to describe these guys, except that they rocked! Killer guitar players …

We saw Cary’s old SV … Some motorcycle person resurrected it … So nice to see it back on the road, being loved … A ding-bat in a BMW wrecked it by turning left in front of her on Folsom Street a few years ago …

We spent a recent Sunday in Dolores Park, on a beautiful afternoon, with hundreds of other people … We had a nice picnic …

We spent an hour and a half trying to vote on Tuesday … First we went to our usual polling place and stood in line there, but they’d given us a new place, so we had to go and stand in line there … After getting to the front of that line they made us go home and find our mail-in ballots, which we had not used … Anyway, we finally got it done … Never saw lines to vote in San Francisco before!

We went and saw the kiddies four our Tuesday night dinner … Playing with Mommie’s doll house … My mother restored it for Rita Anne for Christmas back in the ’70s …

Last night we stayed at the Palace Hotel for Veteran’s Day … A fun city get-away … Lots of room service for us!
