San Francisco

This past weekend, Jerry, Gracie and I went to the beautiful city of San Francisco. Jerry and I haven't been in about 10 years and I wanted to go for my birthday, so we packed up the car with junk food, pillows, and anything else one would need for a weekend road trip and made our way to the city by the bay. Hey, that rhymes! We took tons of pictures of course and I have 5 postings worth so instead of attemping to post 30 pictures at once I am going to break up the posts.

Some of the pictures below show our first night and day in SF. Gracie did great in the car although she did talk quite a bit. Gee, I don't know anybody like that. :) On the drive to SF, we had to point out all the cows and sheep and make the appropriate noises that go with those animals. We stopped halfwayto SF at McDonald's and Gracie announced to the restaurant that she had to go pee pee in the potty chair. I'm sure the people eating their hamburgers got a nice visual with that comment.

At the hotel, Gracie slept with me while Jerry got his own bed to himself, lucky dog. We couldn't push the bed against the wall and I was worried that Gracie was going to fall out so I didn't get much sleep the first night. Wouldn't you know that in the middle of the night, I felt Gracie tossing and turning and one toss too many and bam she fell out of bed! Like the trooper she is, she crawled right back in and went to sleep with no kisses or anything.

One of our first stops was Chinatown where although Gracie has plenty of them, I couldn't resist buying her a cute pair of shoes. What's shopping without shoes anyway?! We ate a delicious lunch and visited a fortune cookie factory which was more like a tiny store. They even had chocolate fortune cookies, and flat fortune cookies which are the cookies before they shape them. When we got home, Jerry found 1 regular cookie in our flat batch and this is what his fortune said, Fu Ling Yu Says (fooling you says): Caged canary should not fear kitten, a little pussy never hurt anyone. I kid you not, that was his fortune!

Yay, headed to SF!!

All tucked in and ready for her book
