One morning we woke up to rain. It’s the rainy season in San Francisco. It wasn’t a heavy rain, but it was enough. We had wanted to get out and walk and so we debated. We suddenly realized that we had not been to the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park for quite a while and that the rain would keep the crowds down.
The other day, we escaped the apartment and went to Golden Gate Park. While there, we took a stroll around Lloyd Lake. Please join me for some pretty scenery and a bit of history about this small jewel in the park.
As usual, Friday night is time for our boys to shine. I also decided to toss in a bonus pick of our Golden Gate Bridge. I have lived here for 8 years and I never get tired of seeing it. I hope you enjoy all three pics.

Now, both of them are gone. Anne Francis was born in Ossining, New York. She was a model and did soap/radio work early on. By the age of 11, she made her stage debut in Broadway’s “Lady in the Dark”. She had a very busy career and appeared in a great many tv shows and movies. One of her most famous roles was as television’s first female detective in Honey West. She lost her battle against pancreatic cancer on Sunday.
Our condolences to her family, friends, and fans. She will be missed.
Pete Postlethwaite has lost a long time battle with cancer. He was 64. Born in 1946 to a working class family in Northern England, he developed an interest in acting while in college. From his beginnings as a drama teacher, he branched out to the theater and then film and television in the 80s. In 1993, he was nominated for an Oscar for playing the father of Daniel Day-Lewis in “In the Name of the Father”.
As before, our condolences to his family, friends, and fans. He too will be missed.
Happy New Year everyone! I don’t have much for today. However, I wanted to post a favorite picture of mine. It was one of the first I took with my camera and I just got very lucky. The picture, as you see it, is upside down. It is a reflection in the pond at the Palace of Fine Arts here in San Francisco. I found the picture to be more interesting upside down, so here it is.
