March “madness”

A fairly quiet 2 weeks in San Francisco, mostly because of my guardian’s pterygium operation on the 14th.

I recall it was the 16th when I escorted my guardians down to Chestnut Street’s Squat & Gobble for an early breakfast.  Jodie and her companions happened by and, after greeting me by name, visited a few minutes.  (I usually see them at Crissy Field, see photo)

Then the next day I was on Chestnut Street for St. Patrick’s Day – what a madhouse!  No beer or corned beef for me – just a couple of errands, some sightseeing,  and compliments from newly made “friends.”

On March 19th my companions and I walked to Roses Cafe for a nice celebratory lunch outside.  I like Roses because they always have a well stocked water bowl plus healthy treats.  Plus the people-watching is excellent.

Last Thursday my guardian’s dear friend, Mary Lou, arrived from Denver, staying until this afternoon.  It rained a couple inches while she was here (but we’re still way behind normal for the season).  This kept us inside sometime but we still had a really nice time – lots of laughs,  a few walks including a good one this morning down by the Bay, and a lot of small talk.

Plus we watched some basketball – I’m pleased Ohio State made the Final 4 and the Stanford ladies are in the Elite 8 – one of my companions and I will watch the Cardinal tonight with my paws crossed.

I’m hoping that Mary Lou will give her perspective…

About MrWally

I was found in a city park in Southern California without an ID or name and adopted when I was about one. I then moved to San Francisco with my new family who named me Wally. I very much enjoy the parks and beaches. I like all my neighbors and everyone around seems to like me - in fact, many neighbors greet me by name and I'm really friendly with our US Postal Carrier! Occasionally I get to spend weekends at a ranch in Sonoma, and I've already toured much of the western U.S.

    Hi Wally! Thanks for keeping us updated about your guardians. If Skiff had a website (but she doesn’t) she would tell you she has noticed her guardians have their suitcases packed. This means she is getting extra attention this evening … including a new cat toy. As for rainy weather, well, Mr. Wally, you haven’t seen a winter in Portland!
