TH and I went walking along the river yesterday and 6 (six!!) deer crossed the trail a couple hundred feet away from us: a buck, doe, baby-buck and 3 baby-does). It was a beautiful site to behold in the city.
Sorry to say that our university restaurant actually had this "centerpiece" in a private dining room during a search committee luncheon. I had to photograph it with my phone just to prove how bad it is (but I was too embarassed to stand still so the photo wasn't equally bad!).
Late 19th/early 20th century Maori cloak KM and I dragged down from the loft.
Historic place-making on the Embarcadero--across from the restored Ferry Bldg.
No caption needed; welcome to San Francisco.
Father and daughter buying morning sweets in the Ferry Bldg.
A private school in Chinatown.
A cool building that a night-time iphone photo simply cannot do justice.
Our view from the restaurant where we had Sunday lunch. Yup, that's a rabbit in a dress.
The Bay Bridge and Treasure Island from the Pier near the Ferry Building.
Wine and roses on the occasion of the birthday.
Champagne the next night. Someone knows how travel.
(Above) Macy's window dresser trying to make Xmas happen.
Just liked the sign--that's all.
Ye olde campus quad.
Kiddies at my favorite shopping mall--we choose our hotel back home based on proximity to it.
TH indulges in dessert the day after the memorial service. He couldn't finish it. For once.
MP1 and MP2 do a sound check before the service.
FIL's on-campus home for nearly half a century.
On campus, before we left for home, Prop. 8 opponents and proponents squared off the day before the election. At least the presidential outcome was good.
Mar*us Fest (above and below)
No photos of Thanksgiving, but let it be said that there was lots of good food, toasting of a certain associate professor I know, and a miraculous win (by me!) of the card game. Now to the grading....
