It's a holiday weekend here, but, after living some years on the Swiss German holiday schedule, I just plain forgot about the whole thing. On Friday at the shops people were wishing each other a 'happy long weekend' and I thought, aha--something's up! The usual thing seems to be to barbeque, so I rang up some friends to see if they'd like to come over and break in the new grill. Of course, they had already made plans by this time, and to top it off the San Mateo bridge is closed the entire weekend, making it especially hard for folk to travel to and from this area.
In the early/mid-nineties, my Uncle took over ownership of one of the seminal rock clubs on Haight Street in San Francisco. This was a club that I, a music-obsessed young person, happened to frequent. Unfortunately, his was not a totally successful run as the previous owner had 'cooked the books' and Ken assumed a massive amount of unknown debt upon taking over the venue. After only a couple of years, Ken got out of the music club business and he took with him these two, fabulous mementos of his time as owner.
Whenever I'm in the city, I travel by bus almost exclusively for the views afforded me.

I also love walking the city. Yesterday, I spent a lot of time exploring the Richmond. I knew I was in the vicinity of this church, but when I turned the corner and there it is was in front of me, I was quite excited & had to snap this picture.
