See that huge gigantic bird going from right to left? I see it too. Thing is huge. This is where Redwood City meets the Bay. Did not realize it at the time, but a full moon was rising right behind us. I’m sure the gigantic bird could see it.Read more "down to the waterline"
Out to dinner tonight at Milagro’s we were seated next to a couple of loud talkers, and so I feel that I can relay some of their conversation (in case you couldn’t hear them from your location). They were at the end of a day of sailing, apparently as skippers of a sailboat on the […]Read more "the gate"
After traveling around the state last week, I would say that we’ve settled down in the right location. The crickets have arrived. I heard them during my evening run at Edgewood. And there are a zillion frogs along Cordilleras Creek. From up high on the Edgewood Trails I could see a sailboat class in progress […]Read more "this must be the place"
The Hetch Hetchy pipeline replacement project is underway, and making its way through the neighborhood. I took a few pictures.Read more "coming through"
That’s what I intend to do, and I encourage you to do the same. On the agenda this weekend: a visit to the barbershop, a test run at the cross-country course, finish up with the sprinks project in the backyard, and give the resident megafauna a dose of the Advantage. And in case that’s not […]Read more "have a great weekend"
This morning I made a run over to Orchard Supply to get a couple of things, and my first stop was their garden area where I hoped to visit with Ivy, the resident cat. They had all these people wheeling in racks of dumb bedding plants (who buys these?) and I didn’t expect to see […]Read more "taking my business elsewhere"

For most of January and February, our normally clear tap water was all cloudy. They told us it was just air, resulting from work being done on the water pipeline, but it also had a funny taste. Didn’t taste like air, however. Now we’re back to the good clear Hetch Hetchy water. I think I’m […]Read more "that clears things up"
Superbowl weekend is here, and once again the Bay Area is available to be enjoyed by the miniscule sector of the population that won’t be watching the game. That includes Mellowcat and friends, and we’ll take advantage of this rare moment. Used to really be a ghost town around here during the ‘9ers Superbowl heyday, […]Read more "out on the weekend"
On the drive in to see the cats this morning, we saw a group of Niner fans in full red and gold regalia standing on Brewster near El Camino, waiting for the bus to Candlestick. And as we tended to the front garden in the early afternoon, the street was very quiet. Hardly any traffic, […]Read more "football town"
