The View from the Tenderloin



The View from the Tenderloin

I am feeling much better, the medical issues seem to be over. I went out twice, for a total of 9.2 miles, and got some important stuff done. My home care provider went for the second walk with me, and commented that "everyone was wearing masks".. I read today that if eighty percent of the public wore masks, the rate of new infections would drop off the chart.

I went to Trader Joe's on the first walk, I needed to stock up on booze, a bottle of Irish whiskey and a bottle of dark tequila fixed that.

Being part of the solution works throughout the spectrum, from family and friends, to nation states. As a nation, we need to always be part of the solution. This administration has been a huge problem, both domestically and internationally. We need to fix that.

Hold those dear to you close

God save the Republic

1. I know someone there and he tells me there is quit a bit of folks out in

the area, but in other parts of the city not so much.

Glad to hear from you.

3. Thanks!


We walked through the Tenderloin, and it was as crowded as you are going to see it anywhere in the City. Most were wearing masks.

2. I live up on a mountaintop in SF

The bus no longer runs in my neighborhood. People are walking the mountain behind my home but we are self distancing. And forget Trader Joes in Stonestown. 1 hour lines because of social distancing. When I need to shop there I drive down to the 9th street TJs minimal lines. But is is so eerily weird to not deal with traffic and finding ample parking. A couple of weeks ago we drove on Mission street and was taken by by the number of tents on the street. But then we drove down to the Marina and was shocked at the number of people frolicking with no masks on the Marina Blvd greens.

All these little neighborhoods in SF with different vibes.

4. Yes


All the little neighborhoods, toe to toe. I'm enjoying the new one, moving from Hyde/Ellis to Folsom/fourth has been sweet. I'm looking forward to the shelter in place order being lifted. Very much.

5. There's free testing on the Embarcadero, right next to Red's Java House. I got tested Tuesday, and

got my negative results Thursday. There's also a walk-up testing facility on 7th Street.

I've tried a few of the Trader Joe's liquors. The scotches just didn't do it for me, but the Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey is smooth and easy; very reasonably priced.

6. All quiet in the Inner Richmond

We're all wearing masks and distancing here. It's so quiet that the slightest sound is startling. We walk to Safeway and bike to Clement St for bakery stuff and local produce & bacon.
The dogs are all confused because friends can't pet them.
