Friday Night Potpourri

Junk and stuff for a Friday night with good weather:

  • I watched Johnathan Sanchez of the San Francisco Giants pitch a no-hitter on TV tonight. I had a ticket for last night, and my family has tickets for tomorrow night. Not the best part of a sandwich to not eat. Congratulations anyway!
  • I had a business call with somebody from North Carolina tonight. He asked about our rainfall here in California. Uhhhm, we don't have any from May to October, I told him. Or very little. He said he visited the East Bay (Oakland area) several years ago, and it was cold, so he had to wear a jacket in summer. Uh, yes to that, too. Living here is weird because San Francisco is famous for its fog and cold evenings, yet California is famous for sunshine and hot weather. Outsiders can't figure it out.
  • I understand that it was the 500th birthday of John Calvin. I'm unemployed so I can't even afford that many candles.
  • I've written several posts on this blog about the dog doo on my front lawn. I figured out it's really cats.
  • Do a Google Maps view of your neighborhood, then type in "church" in the search box. Interesting.
  • For Father's Day I recieved some CD's: Foreigner's Double Vision, The Who's The Who By Numbers and UFO's Strangers In The Night. Excellent all.
  • More pages are falling out of my bible than ever. I've had it for almost 30 years. Time for a new one?


  1. I went to a Giants game in July some years ago when Bonds was chasing the single season record. We lived in Cincinnati at the time, so a July game means shorts and a t-shirt. I knew I was in trouble when people in the bleacher section I was sitting in sat down with jackets and wool hats. I was so cold by the 4th inning that an older lady gave me her sweatshirt. Live and learn.

  2. Abby was at the game last night. I posted about it this morning.
