I never have good answers to any of them so they frustrate me. But there’s one question that if asked my answer will […]

One visit to San Francisco changed me. I went hiking. (Yep hell hath frozen.) Eric and I went to SF for our oldest son’s college graduation. It was our first trip to the area so we started with the typical sights. First, there were these seals. (They are technically sea lions, but they said I […]
