February 20--The lament of the lesser kidney

I wrote an entry that covered the 5 days I missed, and talked about how I was in a funk and didn't feel like writing, and I added pictures and everything, then it disappeared. I don't feel like writing it again, so I am just gonna put the pictures in and call it a day.


A sailboat sails in front of Mare Island, an old submarine shipyard. Taken from the ferry we took to San Francisco Friday. It was a perfectly lovely day, with lots of sun and no wind. We sat outside on the ferry trip across the bay.

Once we got to SF, we had lunch at the Ferry Building, then wandered across town. Malida enjoyed taking pictures for her photo class, and I just enjoyed taking pictures.

A street musician across from the Ferry Building. He looks like he is playing the blues, but he is actually singing a Sting song.

We walked through Chinatown and there were all sorts of people setting off fireworks for the new year.

Saturday I took my car in for a recall. Bad air bags. It was a "most of the day" service, so I decided to walk the 4 1/2 miles home. I took my time and stopped for coffee along the way. When I got home I discovered that I didn't have a house key, and was locked out. I took Lyft to Malida's work, and discovered that she didn't have one either. I ended up driving her car home and getting in through the garage via her garage door opener.

Sunday I went for a walk and saw turtles.


One of the turtles had a busted shell.

Monday it was cold out, so I watched movies and took a walk in the late afternoon. I wore a warm hat.

Today I lectured on fluid movement and electrolytes, then went to the dentist for my regular cleaning. Everything looked good.

So there you have it. I ended up writing more than I did the first time, and even added another picture.
