Elliot introduces us to the forest animals that populate her world and she regales us with a convoluted tale from the wilds of the playground . . .
The Bears won, I played with my daughter and had dinner with my gorgeous wife at my favorite restaurant—it was a good birthday.
Elliot and I decided to spend a beautiful autumn afternoon at The Plaza. We started off at the playground, but soon discovered we were amidst a sea of fallen leaves.
It wasn’t long before we were building and scattering piles upon piles of leaves. Then her friend Sophia, along with some older kids from school, showed up . . .
Sarah met Bobby on her first day at USF. They’ve been best friends ever since (or “Tacos” as they call each other.) Peter met Bobby on his first day living in SF. They were friends immediately and have been so ever since.
We love Bobby’s genuine friendliness, intelligent humor, creative positivity and musical talents (he’s a world-famous rock star, you know . . . ) He was a groomsman in our wedding and has been there over the years, even when he was living all the way in Minneapolis. We were delighted when he and his girlfriend Mary moved back to San Francisco (in our old ‘hood, nonetheless.) They rented a zipcar and drove up to Sonoma to visit us recently. We took them wine tasting (Scribe, of course) and then to the Plaza for a wine country picnic dinner. We look forward to more visits with Bobby and Mary now that they’re close again!
On Fridays, Elliot has the afternoons off, which we spend at the Plaza playground before going grocery shopping.
