Bag of Tricks

After four days of dripping fog, I can actually see the sun! Woot! The fog is very San Franciscan and all that rot, but it is dreary and depressing after a while and blue sky is a welcome change.

Yesterday, was one of the drippiest fog days of all. It was both cold and wet. In fact I had on my winter coat while I ran errands. While I was at the bank, I was looking for my bank card that slipped into the deepest recesses of my bag and I receivef a rather strange look from the the teller as things came out of my purse.  I carry a bag that is part purse, part emergency medical supply kit. The teller raised an eyebrow when a giant tube of 70spf  sunblock appeared. Maggie will burn in a heartbeat, so I’m never without sunblock, even on a foggy day.

 If she thought that was weird, it's probably a good thing she didn't see the feeding tube, suction tubing and catheters that I didn’t pull out!

P.S. If you get the chance to see Peter Pan from Theatre 360 – GO! The show is fun and an incredible visual experience. It’s not the Disney cartoon or the old Mary Martin version, it’s something new and different. You feel like you are flying across the London rooftops!


  1. First of all, I had a vision of Mary Poppins pulling all that stuff out of her bag as you described your own bag!

    And if we make it up to SF, is the Peter Pan show something going on all summer or is it a limited time? I went on the website and couldn't find an end date. It sounds fantastic --

  2. I'm not positive Elizabeth, but it should be here for the entire summer at least. I think it's one of those shows that will be here as long as people are coming to see it. The Teatro Zinzanni has been here for 10 years.


Hi Maggie loves your comments. It may take a while for the comment to post, but you will see it eventually.
