The greeting committe.......




My partners in crime for the day........

There's some good stuff in here. I'm not checking in as often as I should, but I always have fun when I do.

DP,
I had to visit a portable MRI truck, non-open (tube?) type machine to get my knee checked a couple of years ago. The assistant doing the pre-scan questions, really wanted to be clear that it could feel confining and wanted to know if I was sure I wasn't claustrophobic. She was satisfied when I told her that I lived on a submarine for four years.

Enjoyable RR, thanks for posting.

The Golden Gate Bridge.

I love this bridge.
We were supposed to go up to the top (or close to it) of the north tower this afternoon.
Didn't happen, plan wires crossed......
But we did tool up into the headlands for a most spectacular view..........


On the way up.......




A sneak peek behind the scenes.....








The Bay bridge and SF.......






Get ready......................





Now this is cool. I couldn't have asked for better......
esp. with all the tourists I had to keep shooing away and the fact I was sweating to death.....










Next week...........




The British Peach.........
we don't look alike at all.

This fellow had just arrived for the first time in SF that morning.originally broke in to conversation by asking whose Triumph that was and that he had an 05 tiger and the daytona (oooh) with the 955 motor

So, of course................






Old brick from the remains of the structures.........




IN one of the barracks......
