A Visit to Kite Hill Park

 


A friend of mine suggested that I check out Kite Hill Park in San Francisco and I am so happy I did. It is the coolest little park and it located between Twin Peaks and Dolores Park in the city. It has super cool views of the city and it is a nice place to hang out:








What is so  cool about Kite Hill Park is literally less than a five-minute walk from it is a mini-park called Seward Mini Park which small but has these cool slides. People leave cardboard out at the bottom of the slide, so you can slide down:



A visit to Kite Hill Park in San Francisco is a must, it still somewhat under the radar but it is so cool. Also, this is the first blog using my new Samsung tablet to take pics with.

Music Monday: Inspired By Winnie the Pooh

 Music Monday: This is going to be a little different as I am picking songs that are inspired by the great Children's Classic-Winnie the Pooh:

The first thing I thought of was the setting which was the Hundred Acre Wood and I thought of Rush's great song "The Trees": 



And Winnie the Pooh has a lot of Common Sense:



And has a lot of friends:


And he loves honey:



And there is always a lot optimism in the stories:



Hope you enjoyed my Music Monday, inspired by Winnie the Pooh:

Somewhere Outside of Las Vegas


 Just some pics from outside of Vegas in November. I was trying to head to Red Rock Canyon Park but it was closed due to COVID, so I took these pics of the scenery around the park:










Vegas might be a all concrete and everything but  outside of it is so very beautiful.

Saving Random Pictures


 Nothing going on here as my old laptop decided to give up the ghost and died on me. I had to go out and get a new one. It is what it is but I had some pics on there for this blog and tried to save as much as I can. Here is a random look on what I saved:







And some famous cars:

Herbie the Love Bug

Bonnie and Clyde's Death Car

And two Statue of Liberties made out of candy:

Made of out Twizzlers

Made of Hershey's Chocolate

And Finally some art from "Top Dog" in Berkeley:



Glad I was able to save some pictures. I got the cloud with new laptop. Sometimes old dogs learn new tricks.

Music Monday: Hoping for Peace and Love

 Music Monday: Just thinking about the crazy events of the last week. I don't care if you are on the right or the left, we all need to hope that peace and love replace a lot of bad feelings people have for each other right now. 

The only thing I can say is that everyone who comes and visits my little dribble here on the internet is my brother and my sister. I don't care what color, what ethnic background, what religion you are or who you voted for, you are a sister or brother of mine:










Because we need to remember that Love is Actually all round in the world:


I wish everyone peace and love and have a wonderful Monday.

Good Bye Haight Ashbury T-Shirts

 


This is kind of a sad post as I went up to the Haight in San Francisco and found out that one of my favorite places to shop-Haight Ashbury T-Shirts is closing up shop. The place is an icon in San Francisco and has been around for 43 years. It started off as a bookstore and morphed into a clothing shop on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco and has been there every since. Most of my T-Shirts are from there. It is a treasure trove for tie-dye and t-shirts. 

It has been a family-run place for all 43 years. They say that they are closing due to COVID and subsequent lack of tourism. 







Here are my last purchases from Haight-Asbury T-shirts:



And I had to get these fridge magnets

Good-Bye Friend. You will be truly missed. You were an icon and place that I grew up with. Thanks for enriching my life so every much.
