Squirrel nuts, a snake, some dogs, a city, and some big, heavy balls…

a 1

Yup… that is a squirrel, hanging upside down on a palm tree… eating, what I assume, is some sort of nut. Now that we are all caught up on the Comic Con/Hamilton/sunset pictures, I can start to fill you in on some of our other adventures in the Bay Area… where we still are. Where did I spot that squirrel. you may well be asking?

We went down to Oakland… Jack London square, to be precise. That is a nice view of San Francisco, over past the boats and the big cranes used to unload cargo ships.

We met Willie, our godson, and his mom, Eva. Big Johnny was at work, and couldn’t join us. We went bowling, among other things.

Between rolling the bowling ball, William practiced his light saber technique with Dashawn, my daughter’s boyfriend.

There is my younger daughter, Mollie, still rocking the pink hair.

If you look right above the red set of numbers, you will see that I bowled a respectable 156. One of my best scores ever, and considering the fact that I was drinking at the time, not too shabby.

So, yeah, it was beautiful down by the bay.

Willie… rockin’ the octopus hat!

A statue of Jack London. You may have heard of him. He wrote some books.

On the way back to my mom’s house, we stopped in Berkeley, once again by the bay. The fog was rolling in. It was windy, and we have a cool new kite.

When you are looking up at a kite, remember to look down once in a while too. I almost stepped on a five-foot-long snake.

I also met a cool old guy with lots of dogs. Yes… I met the dogs too… don’t be silly.
