On Saturday, February 1, 2014, we adopted Sparky from Berkeley Humane Society.  He is a 2 year old poodle mix.  He likes kids and other dogs.  He doesn’t shed so I’m not allergic to him.  He loves to go on walks.  We are having fun with our new doggie.

The week before Christmas I went to Frank and Brian’s house to decorate Frank’s Christmas tree.

I took a walk around the piers in San Francisco to see the Christmas decorations.  This Burning Man art was in front of the Exploratorium.  I saw this at the Burning Man Festival a few years ago.

Golden Girls

On Friday, December 13, I went to see the “Golden Girls Christmas” show in San Francisco with my daughter, son, the “Flock of Sea Girls” band and friends.  We go every year and it is hilarious.  This year we all wore ugly Christmas Sweaters.  Here are my photos:


My son Brian and my daughter Jennifer.  Brian decorated his sweater.

This guy made his own dress.  He was sitting in front of me.
