Where did I leave my heart?

Happy Valentines Day to all.

Maggie went off to school with chocolate hearts for all her friends and teachers. In years past we've done more elaborate valentines, but she is going for the understated and classy approach this year. That and this day sort of sneaked up on us giving us no times to prepare. Oh well. The thought is pure.

We are looking past Valentine's Day and President's Day to Maggie's upcoming 18th Birthday. We are planning a big party and all energy is focused there. Maggie thinks the priorities are just right.

If you mention her birthday she starts waiving her hand in the air. She is actually looking forward to it, which I believe is a first. Maybe she's just looking forward to being 18, so she doesn't have to live by my rules anymore.

For those of you in San Francisco, pay attention to the Tuesday noon whistle/alert today. Instead of the normal air raid sound with the unintelligible instructions you will hear "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" because today is Tony Bennett day and the 50th anniversary of that song being released.

Edit update: 12 noon has come and gone, and no Tony Bennett over the emergency system. Too bad. I plan to sing it from my beck deck for all my neighbors. It's the least I can do for all of them.


  1. I LOVE that San Francisco is using Tony Bennett's beautiful voice and music today -- Happy VD AND TB day!

  2. Awwww man!!! Wish I was in SF today, wont hear it from Marin:(

  3. My husband said he heard the air horns but no Tony:(


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