Today I was picked up by some nice folks; to begin our road trip south. I am going to try to post something at least once a day, not because I think that you all care, and not because I think that my life is worth the documentation, but because I think that when I make blog posts, people seem to remember me, who they would have otherwise forgotten. And since I will be out of SF for a whole week, I am fearful that everyone I care about there will have consigned me to oblivion by my return. Anyway, Riley Farrell, whom I just told he was a freak for never owning a pet in his life, has been so kind as to help me out with my first post… Here goes. I cannot take the credit for this genius connection… hope you enjoy.
