Flypaper thoughts last night in San Francisco version

  • Spent a week here with the kids
  • Who needless to say are good sports
  • Really, really good sports
  • Just ask them
  • Interesting trip
  • First leg with my mom being the kid
  • Next leg with my kid being the mom
  • Things change but that also brings in such nice surprises
  • Got to know my daughter-in-law a little better
  • Let me tell you this family sure scored with that one
  • So kind, thoughtful, and interesting
  • They are a unit, a good unit
  • It doesn't get any better than that
  • For your kid or for his mother
  • What did I do here?
  • Went to Britex which was nice but very overpriced
  • Strong sense that my NYC garment district negotiating skills would not get me far
  • Feel shrugging and walking away would just lead to 
  • Well them watching me walk away
  • As opposed to saying
  • I can give it to you for ... probably more than the marked price actually
  • Had lovely folks in a another store show me the inside of designer clothes
  • Pics to come
  • Walked and walked and walked
  • Up hills more than down hills
  • Not sure how they do that
  • This city is so beautiful you can't compare it to anything else
  • Reminded me more of Europe than anywhere else
  • Need to get the travel wardrobe down much better
  • Continuing my policy of packing mostly shoes and clothes for some other climate
  • Middle son is moving to Austin Texas
  • This family, honestly
  • They know there is no point
  • I will just come and visit
  • Got the spouse seeing what the state parks are like in Texas
  • What I am learning about packing
  • You don't need to pack three hats
  • You do need to a pack one sweater
  • Just because the label says California this town isn't
  • People smile here
  • I am sure I recognize that smell in the air
  • The bus driver is driving a bus until he can sell his software idea
  • I am considering calling my fabric collection
  • A non profit based start up investment concept
  • Going to sell my husband on the concept of being a VC
  • Have to explain that means venture capitalist not very confused
  • Which he often is when I explain I am spending money to save money
  • Or I might if I could get the start up part of this operation launched
  • Before the first quarter
  • Or new pattern releases whatever comes first
  • Borrowed a dog to walk from son's co-worker
  • Walked across the Golden Gate bridge which is orange
  • That part without the dog
  • Went to the first winery started by a migrant worker
  • Gave dating advice to son's co-worker
  • A topic I really know a lot about
  • He's doing tons of first dates from some app
  • I have three sisters so I know what women want I said
  • Did not mention that all sisters, plus myself, have seen menopause come and go
  • Good advice is still good advice
  • I thought he was pretty impressed
  • Son cleared the table
  • Well at least I scored some dog walking didn't I?
  • Tomorrow back for another short stop with my mom
  • The kids can recover 
  • Then home
  • Did I mention I got a new Juki serger and cover hem?
  • More on that later
  • Got a real deal
  • Just ask my VC
