But they barked at each other through the wire mesh fences, constantly). The li’l crits were in heaven.

So, self went to the City (successfully negotiating BART, but it took her an hour and a half, starting from the minute she exited her house to the arrival at the Civic Center station — compared to New York’s subways, BART is pathetic), and watched Luis’ play with niece (Super-entertaining! And not a dull moment! Self couldn’t help wondering, afterwards, why Read the rest of this entry »
