Thanks to a Meetup.com group, we found a beautiful new bayside park near the San Leandro Marina (where my dad used to moor his boat) that I had previously not known about, with off-leash areas.
It was great to see my sister and her beautiful family, which had come in from Tennessee and Arizona. I finally got a chance to introduce them to Shando and see a new grand-niece who was just born a few months ago. Yes, they have a pet prairie dog. While talking about our family history there I got inspired to join Ancestry.com again. I encourage people to join. Hopefully they will reduce the price if more people join.
After some rough sister rivalry, Bella and Cappy seem to have made up (since they sleep next to each other):
I met Eytan many years ago in New York City and now he lives in Los Angeles. This was his first trip to San Francisco and so we showed him the sites, including Fort Funston, Twin Peaks, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands.
My daughter, Alexandra Hayden, owner of Bossbabe, using an alias in homage to the “(She-) Wolf of Wall Street,” was on a panel at NYU (where I used to teach as an adjunct for a few years). I’m so proud of her continuing the media involvement that I’ve been doing since she was a little girl.
