I liked this sign. But what I really liked was someone added a flower. New rule, all flyers must have flowers.
Same as the licks to the Tootsie Roll center, 3.
Phil says they look philosophical hahaha
They were actually super cute in real life.
Which Phil and I moved to the backyard with our little toy wheelbarrow and two shovels. It took 3 hours so afterwards we had to go to Nopalito for lunch and a Margarita. Urban farming is expensive.
Finally going through the boxes of hand me downs in the storage. Found this with acres of tea cups.
A considerate someone in the Castro concerned with the comfort and well-being of stoplights.
All this rain will definitely help our first crop at Rancho HayBro, cardboard.
The swell Palo-Mar Stables on Skyline just south of SF lets you come and get all the horse manure you want.
Here is Colette, shoveling shit in white converse.
Thanking this handsome guy for his contribution.
These guys too. In other news, the name Rancho Ding Dong has been voted out by the minions. We are now Rancho HayBro (Hayes@Broderick)

Step 3. Post it on facebook and twitter so someone can tell you what to do next.
How have I never seen this before? Fair Oaks near 25th.
In which the lone camellia of a bush that survived drought (not draught as previously somewhat erroneously reported), pests, pestilence, small boys with big shovels and saws, gets done in by the cat.
Check out the protoplasm at my favorite parklet at Fabric8. OK maybe it’s bird related.
I don’t think that tiny fence will protect city hall.
Is it the work of the Talidutch or the Dutchiban?
Modified Cone of Shame.
The first one was a photo I took of Lisa Mendelson’s Bukowski lingerie poetry embroidery at her old place Soap Gallery. This one is thanks to my daughter and her friend Cade. It really is about who you know.
OK, so I didn’t put a lot of time into the graphic, but it’s a pretty cute tag line, geographically. Also important, politically.
The over-all feel of the celebration, because with teenagers, the less specifics you know the better.
Really really really do wish you the best in everything for the new year, even the cats.
