So.... stalker or no stalker, I am gonna share... /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70371-jump.gif


Yesterday we went to the Haight St. Fair in San Francisco.

It was Imanni's 2nd time in the city, and he had a ball...

http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e297/IrieBandana/San%20Francisco/IMG_1671.jpg


His Father lived in SF for many years, and was glad to be in his old stomping grounds for the day.

I love the city on occasion, and planned to meet up with an old friend at the Street Fair...


So this is my report of a day in San Francisco /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70371-jump.gif

I spent probably 3 hours twisting Imanni's hair on Saturday...

He was so good, he sat still and would help me hold a piece here and there /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif we took breaks in between sections, and by the afternoon his head was done... /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70371-jump.gif

On the way to the city he could not stop shaking his head and pulling on the twists... I think he really likes it /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif

We make our way through the crowd, stop to listen to the live band, grab some food, and water...

Finally my friend calls and we decide on a place to meet. When we find each other, we decide the place is too crowded and not our scene. So we agree to go to the park and check out what’s happening there... The park is back the way we came, and it takes a while to maneuver through the crowd /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70392-silly.gif Imanni's Dad is getting stopped by what seems like every Rasta on the Haight... "Hey man where you been, what's up Ras good to see you" /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif so it took a while to get to Golden Gate park... all the while Imanni is in his stroller being good an people watching...

You could tell he was getting restless tho:

Some of my best memories are of waking up at Sierra Nevada World Music Fest to the sound of drumming...

At first it's 1 maybe 2 drummers doing nyabinghi, with each strike they call to the others, and by the time the sun is fulling shining the drum circles are HUGE... You can feel the beat in your chest, and a spiritual vibe is in the air to start another day of music....

I can't wait for Imanni to go to another Reggae Festival /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70409-waytogo.gif

LOL /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

No, I don't think so ROOTS /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70402-thinking.gif

This is what I think it is...

A pocket gopher /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Botta’s pocket gopher or valley pocket gopher are two common names for this fossorial (i.e., digging or burrowing) mammal. Botta (or bottae) honors Italian Paolo Emilio Botta, a 19th century naturalist, who visited California in 1827 on a collecting expedition for the Museum of Natural History of Paris. He is known to archaeologists as the discoverer of the Assyrian ruins of Ninevah. The generic epithet "Thomomys" comes from the Greek thomos, meaning heap, and mys or mouse. Gopher is derived from the French word gaufre, for honeycomb, a reference to the animal’s subterranean network.

Description

Rat-sized rodents with short, mostly hairless tails, minute eyes and ears, and large forelimbs with elongated claws. They weigh six to eight ounces and range in color from pale gray to russet to black, depending upon soil color. The lips close behind the large front teeth, which lets the animal dig without getting a mouthful of soil. On each side of the mouth is an external, fur-lined storage pouch.

Range
All of Arizona, southern half of Utah, most of California, western half of New Mexico, southern third of Nevada, and south into Mexico.

The diversity of people in SF is WONDERFUL!

Having the digital camera makes it so much easier to take pictures.... I still have film un-developed from our trips to visit you and Swedish when Iman was just a baby /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70392-silly.gif
