Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady. 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. >^..^<

Luke of Warrior Canine Connection points out where the 2014 SF Giants World Series Champions pennant should go.

Luke is a service dog-in-training, and must be exposed to various environments.
Good taste in spots, Luke!



This is where I first met Luke, in a suite at The Stick during a SF 49ers game.
Luke really gets around! Hugs & kisses to an awesome dog!

If the SF Giants win, Kim donates to FurEver Animal Rescue in the SF Bay Area.
If the KC Royals win, Charly donates to KC Pet Project of Kansas City, MO.

Either way, the animals win, and that's all that really matters to these two friends! heart

Every cat needs an assortment of SF Giants blankets for curling up during the game.
Kashi chooses carefully.

I don't have a thing to wear. (Ok, maybe I do.) And I must accessorize.


Marco & Kashi choose a hat. Don't get stuck by the hat pins!


Rally towels & more, almost ready. Beverages for celebrating, NOW I'm ready!

The effervescent experience of 25,000 twinkling LED lights on the Western Span of the Bay Bridge by artist Leo Villareal was only intended to be a 2-year display, installed in March of 2013.

As magical as it is, many of us would love to see it stay up past it's March 6, 2015 expiration date. (That sounds so cold for something that has given us such a heartwarming glow.)

There's a movement afloat to try to keep the lights lit. THE BAY LIGHTS has to raise $4 million by Dec 31, 2014. Cal Trans has already tentatively promised to keep an eye on things (ie: maintainance), if money can be raised. Story by SFGate here.


She's a beautiful beacon in the dark (yes, I've personalized an art project), and I'd love to see her keep lighting up the night.

There's ALWAYS room for another World Series trophy... we've got our eye on it.

See it, feel it, hear it, smell it, taste it, KNOW it.
Now we can combine our energies to make it manifest! heart

I FORGOT MY PHONE! I accidentally left my phone at work today, and it feels like a part of me is missing! So much of my work is on my phone, including the pictures I take for these blogs. And of course it's just instinct that as soon as one of my cats or dogs strike a cute pose (or even do something naughty), I try to grab my phone.
Examples of past naughtiness caught on camera: Kashi trying to drink my chocoate-pumpkin-pie-milkshake. Shana relaxing all over the clean laundry.
(Moments that make my heart smile and life worthwhile.)

So now, when my alarm goes off at 2:20am & back-up at 2:45am, no one is going to hear it. And it sure won't wake me up! Ready-made excuse for being late? I'm thinking yes! So let me try a draft....

Dear Boss,
I hope you're reading my blog, so first, you'll know why I didn't answer your unnecessary very important calls today. I certainly missed talking to you after I'd gotten home and was trying to forget about work, and look forward to retrieving my phone so we can chat again tomorrow while I'm in the liquor aisle at Costco comparing bottles of whiskey. Also, I won't be able to hear my alarms going off from the office, so I may be a tad bit late tomorrow. Cool with you? Excellent. Goodnight!
Catch ya on the flip side,
Signed with the utmost of respect
,
Charly

That should work, right?

Outside our windows this morning, the early morning calm before the masses descend upon the Moscone Center in Yerba Buena Gardens, downtown San Francisco. This is the block of Howard St, between 3rd & 4th Sts, that gets turned into Oracle OpenWorld and DreamForce, such as it is now.

Soon, the sidewalks outside our building will teem with people stepping all over each other and stopping abruptly, halting the intricate flow of pedestrians during rush hour, as workers head to the office, often making a detour for their favorite over-priced cup of coffee. Ahh, I love the hustle and bustle of the city.

DreamForce attendees don't have such a bad view, do they?

Neither do we! :-)

Fleet Week San Francisco - now through Oct 13, 2014 - reclaiming its former "spectacular status" with the return of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels!

Enjoy these pics of Fleet Week SF 2012 by San Francisco photographer David Yu, so breathtaking you almost need earplugs. (You'll want them for the real thing. Just don't bring your dog. WAY too loud for sensitive ears!)







Thank you David Yu, for your incredible perspective and talent.
Looking forward to seeing #fleetweeksf 2014 through your lens!

I was fortunate enough to be asked to test out the brand new 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, They value my opinon because I'm such a gear-head. Hahaha, NOT.
But I am a customer who wants something FUN to drive, as well as fast, sturdy, economical, and comes with great technological gadgets... oh I love the gadgets.
And it has to comfortably fit my German Shepherd.
That's why I love this new compact SUV, the 2015 GLA 250.




Here's a sneak peek of Brent Carey's (afternoons on KOIT) 2015 C300 Sport Sedan.
He gets just as excited as I do!

The perfect sound system to listen to 96.5 KOIT!

Taking a selfie in the stands is a MUST at playoffs. (Charly Kayle w/ friend Irma Page.)

Most popular & beautiful selfie spot. Hello Kitty couldn't resist the urge.

Club Level bonus: 2010 & 2012 World Series Trophies!

My favorite pinniped, Lou Seal. Oh wait, is this for kids? That's why I'm kneeling?

Another great spot. And if you say this is only for kids, then you're not a kid at heart! smiley
Love my San Francisco Giants ! Win or lose, it's always a great time at AT&T Park!

Getting invited to a playoff game. YAY! Losing to the Nats 4-1. Boo.
Sitting Club Level. DOUBLE YAY!

What a gorgeous day to be taking in the spectacular view of AT&T Park.

And celebrities always make it to a playoff game, Who's that, right up above me in the luxury suites?

Can't tell? I couldn't either. I was just pointing & snapping. It's Tony Bennett! Trust me, that blur in the sun up above is Tony Bennett.
And who is that on the big screen, now that "Don't Stop Believin'" has started playing?

Steve Perry of Journey, leading the crowd in a passionate sing-a-long.
Always a great time at AT&T Park, whether we win or lose.
Tomorrow: more fun with the SF GIants with lots of selfie opportunities!

A recent trip to Viansa Winery in Sonoma made my pup Brooklyn, and my doggie neighbors Bonnie & Maya (along with their mom, Irma, to the right) very happy.

Spectacular view.

Something in the air...

Vogue.

Let me jump on mommy while she's taking my picture! (I love Irma's shoes.)

This is not to endorse Trader Joe's, because not only do they not pay me to write about them, they do not even know I exist. Oh how I wish they did, and thought to themselves, "I wonder what Charly would think of these new flavors? Why not have her over for a taste test.... of everything in the store... once a week for the rest of her life..."
[Wake up, nap time's over,]

So to celebrate the flavor of pumpkin, and yes there are ohh-soo many more, these are today's not-necessarily-new fun foods filling up my freezer. Yes, there's also pumpkin-spice salted caramels, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin dog treats and some 35 more, but my credit card only stretches so far.
Besides, I had to make sure there was room for my all-time favorite non-pumpkin-flavored delicacy,... dark chocolate-covered banana slices!

Heaven on earth.
Want to see an industrious list of ALL the pumpkin-flavored foods at TJ's? Hats off to gothamist who, I was thrilled to find by Googling, had the same idea as I did, but went after it full force. They documented every Trader Joe's pumpkin-flavored product known to humankind, even at the risk of being banned from the store forever. I've got a lot more shopping to do!

[All photos courtesy Charly Kayle, from her own home. Warning: do not try to take pics of products within the store or you will be admonished like a naughty 4th grader.]
