    Sign on the BART to remind you that “the Man” is always watching

    Me on the Subway

    Pretty cool quilt created out of old upholstery and ties in my hotel lobby—I should learn how to quilt….

    Me and my friends Jeff and Eric outside the Mascone Center the day before the big day of WonderCon

    Here comes the Cable Car to rescue our aching feet!

    The cable cars are manually turned around

    Almost turned around

    I am so excited!

    Glad to see the sea lions made it back to the Pier

    This guy had a lot to say!
  •  
    At the Musee Mechanique near Pier 39, you can play fantastic “old school” games like the Opium Den
  •  
    If the Opium Den doesn’t excite you, try the “English Execution"
  •  
    Another shot of the English Execution game
  •  
    You can get your fortune read by a scary old man
  •  
    Drop a quarter on this, and you get a large mannequin singing opera
  •  
    We finally arrived at WonderCon and my friend Colleen and I just had to get our picture taken with StormTroopers

    Don’t make this guy angry, no one likes him when he’s angry

    Excellent Costumes

    WonderCon only open ½ hour and the masses are filling up the joint

    Jeff used to live here on Powell and Clay up on Knob Hill—or is that Snob Hill?
