Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard. >^..^<
Sat, April 18, 2015 - San Francisco Giants 2014 World Series Championship RING Ceremony! Skydivers gracefully steered their way to the field carrying two of the rings, while in the stands we were all proudly wearing our replicas.
Mine slid off every finger including my thumb, so it is now safely on a chain.
The one place it WON'T find itself is on Ebay, although that's where I heard
the girl sitting behind me say she was putting hers this week. (Booo.)
Admiring our rings, while catching skydivers & World Series stars on the field.
Enjoyable show down below, but our ecstasy came from getting our rings!
Fresh, authentic cookes from Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory on Ross Ave in Chinatown. I walked there to pick some up. When I got home, I put my bulging bag down on the couch and turned away for 2 seconds. Here's what happened:
Meanwhile in the kitchen, Shana doesn't care about cookies, she's into my bamboo! Maybe she thinks that pruning it will make it luckier?
Meet Diana from Pleasant Hill, a loyal KOIT listener!
When I posted a picture last weekend on the KOIT Facebook page of my dog Sasha
on Ocean Beach, Diana replied underneath it that she was coming there on Thurs with Jackson. I thought, "Gee that's so close, why don't I go out and try to meet her
& her dog." I had never met Diana, but she seemed like a really nice person, and we always had nice converstations on the KOIT Facebook page.
Well I was wrong. Jackson ISN'T a dog. He's an adorable & well-behaved 3-yr old.
But I was right about Diana, she is just as nice as she could be. And we talked
SF Giants for almost two hours. Plus how much we adore the SF Bay Area.
Oh, and little Jackson got me back for thinking he was going to be a pup. He
kept calling my little dog "Charly". When Diana corrected him, he would say,
"No, Charly's the DOG!" I laughed all the way home. Hoping to meet more KOIT listeners in more of the Bay Area's amazing places!
Had to make a Costco run for vegetables for my dogs. I don't eat any of this stuff.
I mix it in their dog food. Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, green beans, mixed veggies
& mixed berries.... these are ALL for the dogs.
Well, ALMOST all. Mommy deserves a good Chocolate Ale when she sees one!
Yup, that's me with my sister Celeste last year when she came to visit. Of course
I took her to see the sea lions. And since my SF Giants were in the playoffs, I made her wear one of my shirts with pride!
People would walk by us, pump their fists in the air and yell, "NINERRRS!" She said
to me, "My goodness, SF fans certainly are boisterous, aren't they." I replied, "YES WE ARRRRE! And PROUD!" (I couldn't embarass her although I tried.)
Stop & wish your sister or brother a happy National Siblings Day every April 10th!
Above:I was surprised to turn the corner and find these three iconic Doggie Diner Heads sitting behind a building on Treasure Island, back in January of 2013. (They have since been moved from this location.)
The canine fiber-glass heads were heart warming symbols of the now-defunct Bay Area restaurant chain, Doggie Diner, from 1948-1986. Last I heard, they were waiting to be repaired and "freshened up" (in facelift terms).
This Doggie Diner head proudly looks over the SF Zoo on Sloat Blvd near the Great Highway. I caught this shot as I was driving by.
KIDDING! That's illegal, y'know.
I was actually sitting outside sipping a latte with my own dogs at Java Beach Cafe - Sloat, where you look up and get a perfect view of the beloved head.
One thing my morning show partner, Jack Kulp, and I share is a love of baseball! So to celebrate opening day, we hopped over to O.co Coliseum to soak up some passion & excitement with Oakland A's fans!
Dateline: April 1st, 2015 - Excitement abounds as wildlife experts & Aussie aficionados descend upon the beaches of Fort Funston in San Francisco, CA to catch a glimpse of the elusive Kangashepherd. (Shown above: a Kangashepherd chases a Weimereetah, descendant of the Weimeraner & Aquatic Cheetah.)
The Kangashepherd, revered by mystics & philosophers for centuries, was once thought to be a mythical creature. With the emergence of modern technology came photographic evidence of the actual existence of this gentle & intelligent character, with the speed of a German Shepherd and the gait of a Kangaroo.
The debate rages on in many a Secret Society whether this exquisite combination of mammals could actually be the product of a Wolf hybrid and a Wallaby, rather than the aforementioned canine and marsupial. Slip into any Parisian Cafe after dark and you'll hear lively rhetoric extolling the virtues of the marsupine... or is it caninupial? Order a brandy and join the disussion, it's sure to go long into the night.
We may never know. The Kangashepherd is far too crafty to ever be captured.
For now, the legend will have to live on.
