We went to the Bay Area (where we used to live) a few weeks ago and I have been so busy since that I haven't had time to update my blog. First we spend a whole day with my son Alex who studies Game Design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. We went shopping in Japan town and then we had sushi at Isobune where they have the little boats going around, we love those... We also went to see my friend Megan's talk for the River Otter Ecology Project at the Randall Museum. Because I donated to the cause at the bioluminescent level, I went home with this fabulous river otter puppet that I am totally crazy about. Then, Alex took us to this fabulous place in the Haight called the Ice Cream bar. I had "fromage blanc" ice cream, so delicious but super rich.
On Saturday we were invited to my friend's Jim 60th birthday party that had a 60's theme. Dave looked pretty good with his afro. The party was a total blast and Jim's band, the Earthtones, was on fire!!! And of course Mary and I are the official Earthtonettes dancers, so we did what we could to liven up the party, but we didn't have to do much as everybody got into the spirit of the 60's so it was pretty hilarious and fun. Happy birthday Jim!!
