I don’t blame her; those passengers on the seat facing her look like a thumbs-down jury! Danny looks like he’s gazing back into time, and thinking, “What odd looking kids!” This last Monday was the first time I’ve gone back to Ocean Beach since I lost my little Sand Crab Pointer! Santa trades in his sleigh for a cable car in at Powell and Market Street in the 1940’s: This kind of Christmas pageantry isn’t likely to occur in San Francisco any more. Inside the old Emporium Building at Christmas: This was what a department store was supposed to look like during the Holidays. Extensively remodeled, and new walls, it’s still pretty impressive.

She looks like Ginger Rogers!
