Every Visit An Adventure
This very impressive monument on the left was honoring Francis Scott Key, who wrote the Star Spangled Banner. In the background is the de Young Museum of Art. They were having a Picasso showing. I didn't have that much time. but I made it up to the 9th level and observation deck. For some pictures.
As I needed to be heading back I saw the Shakespeare Garden on the map and thought to myself, 'To go, or not to go. That is the question." But because I have chemo brain, I forgot the question and just walked to it.
Then back for a quick visit with Dr. Burch's office to present a report from my physical therapist, and a chat about my lack of progress with the injections in my back in preparation for the anticipated oblation, and an authorization to play tennis IF I didn't do something stupid (moi?) and hurt myself. I assured him that I hadn't with the bicycle riding and the golf so far...so he said go ahead and try it. Report in the near future.
Then the highlight of the trip. A friend from Paso, John Adams, "knows a guy who knows a guy that can get us tickets to the Giants games. The next day was my physical therapist's birthday, but she had to work all day, so I was able to get us some tickets to the Giants - Dodger game that night. She's a big Dodgers fan. I am a big fan of goofing off. So it was a fit. She and my daughter Candice, who is her aide and is now a certified trainer (health fitness specialist), got off work in Paso at 2pm and headed north.
