sideshow bob

Here is a walking stick kale, I think, in our garden out back.  Ming asked if I had watched the Simpsons, and right away I knew he was going to say our plant looked like Sideshow Bob.

On a walk we encountered a tree covered in these huge, luxurious flowers.  Someone putting away his trash can told us they were angel’s trumpet flowers.

post-birthday birthday trip

We went on a post-birthday birthday trip.  I was spoiled rotten by friends and family.  Here’s us at Guadalupe beach.  We’re standing in front of a body of water that is not the pacific ocean.  You can’t see them in the picture unless you zoom in really close, but there are some small birds in […]

art birthday part II

Here’s a sidewalk skeleton. Here’s some advice. And something about cops… Some graffiti in an alley.  Here’s a sidewalk stencil we saw twice: octopus with ship. Ask instructions. And finally, Mexican wrestling masks.  This is the store where Ming bought me a beautiful silver ring. When I was taking closeup pictures of the masks, the […]

art brithday in SF

For my birthday we went to San Francisco.  We saw a lot of art there on the street. We were in the Mission District.  We went to Mission Delores.  Here’s a picture of the ceiling of the mission near where the altar is. Here’s a stained glass I liked. Here’s a headstone I liked.  We […]

Here’s a tag, I suppose. Okay, now is modern times.  Yesterday we were in Berkeley, and here’s a Day of the Dead sticker […]

life update

Oh em gee, so much has happened.  The primary thing is that Kitty died.  I wrote some poems about it which should appear in the new hat genius. But I don’t want to talk about that.  The neighbor fixed my computer, so I am computing from home again.  Thanks, neighbor. We found two fans at […]

forget me not

Still got a virus.  Do you believe me that I’ll be back to blogging soon?  I will.  As for this moment, I’m at a library.  Life’s trying to get me down but I’m thriving like a plant that thives on neglect only it’s not neglect.  Of course, I could crash at my moment.  Wish me […]
