Doggy Weather

I found this on on 17th Street near Noe.  Pretty self-explanatory. Notice the alliteration (more visual than aural) “tootled through the tree trail.”

Mega Giant

I found this note on the sidewalk near my apartment one morning.

Full of Happiness

I live a few doors down from Dolores Park, and the amount of trash that gets blown into my building’s driveway & garage is pretty impressive. Usually it’s just paletas wrappers, empty beer cases, and pollen. A couple of weeks ago I was in a crappy mood as I went to get my car: someone … Continued

Have Mercy

My next door neighbor just moved out, leaving a dozen large-sized pizza boxes in the recycling. I was flattening them to make more room in the bin, and found this between the top two.

Gun Child

I volunteer at a thrift store on the weekends and while sifting through a box of junk in the back room, I found this picture sandwiched between some odds and ends. The date on the back says 1973. It now belongs to my friend Clint who proudly has it framed and hanging on his bedroom … Continued

Tow Me

I found this on my car.
