Effie Yeah is on the American River Parkway in Sacramento County. I did a quick walk this weekend with the cousins and we saw a red-shouldered hawk and some acorn woodpeckers.

Dragon is happy to sit in the driveway for hours. Sometimes one or both of his brothers joins him. Sometimes he will sneak out at night to sit alone in the dark. Sometimes I'll stare out my office window and watch them watching nothing.
I got bit while breaking up a fight between two dogs. My thumb leaked for a week and you don't even want to see the other side. Fortunately both dogs are OK and I can feel my thumb again.
Maybe I'm forgetting something, but I think the last time I stayed in a hotel in San Francisco was during the 1990s when my Dad was living in a hotel here and I came for a visit.

Maryland fought for the Union during the Civil War so I never really think of it as a slave state, but slavery existed there for nearly 225 years.
I haven't spent much time in Philadelphia since leaving the area forever ago. I do not remember vegan cheesesteaks being on the menu in the 1990s.
My first vegan cheesesteak.
