On the Road --- Day 7/137

Walk: No - Too busy passing Defensive Driving Test
Distance: 0, Yoga

So Ciwt passed her (required) online California Traffic School (grrr*) course.  After reading all those accident  statistics and cirmcumstances, part of her is reluctant to ever get in a car again.  The other part of her now needs to open her DMV Driver Handbook and start cramming for her upcoming license renewal test.

Three Different Reasons --- Day 7/136

Walk: AMC Kabuki (Three Identical Strangers)
Distance: 2 miles, Yoga

1. Interesting facts she guesses, 2. well done she guesses, 3. disheartening+ she knows, so in all Ciwt does not personally recommend Three Identical Strangers.  But Rotten Tomatoes and audience critics do, so your choice.

All By Itself This Time --- Day 7/135

Walk: Hood
Distance: 3 miles, wee yoga

Maybe part of why Ciwt finds this photo - by a 9 year old - so wondrous is that these are real stars, in a real sky, a hour or so from her home.  For so many years her San Francisco sky has had maybe 10-12 visible stars and often none at all because of our fog and/or city lights.

Talented Kids, part 2* --- Day 7/134

Walk: A few errands
Distance: A few blocks, a little yoga

Rene Magritte, Empire of Light, 1950, o/c

eat your heart out.  Here's one of Magrittes's paintings exploring sky, light and home.  And above is a photo by a college classmate's grandson.  He planned ahead at his grandparents' vineyard, waited until a certain hour, adjusted his new camera's speed and lens,  hoped for clear skies and shot this of the Milky Way in Northern California.  He is 9.

Where Do I Place My Paw Print? --- Day 7/133

Walk: Union Square
Distance: 1 mile, small yoga

Ciwt spent today enrolling her new cats in 'home pet sitting camp.'  Photos and form after form for each cat and each service.  She started off thinking "Okay, this time I'll just drop them off at a cat boarding place."  Well, the one closest to her charges - are you ready - $175 a day for her new little darlings.  The 'less expensive' places require her to bring all sorts of beds and toys that will cost a pretty penny plus the girls must arrive perfectly groomed with lovely nails and Ciwt knows what that means...( a groomer appointment).

Ciwt has her fingers and their paws crossed in hopes her adorable, clean, youngish, healthy cats will be accepted because, one of these days, she would like to take a trip.

Better Late Than....-----Day 7/132

Walk: Palace Hotel Garden Court, SF Playhouse (Sunday in the Park with George)
Distance:  None, 2 driving trips downtown to see an out of town old friend and later a play

Takes a while (30 years in this case) for Broaday to come to San Francisco, but always worth the opportunity to see plays as excellent as this Tony winner.
