    That is simply magical. Mike Kai: I think the artist asked the guy to toss in the ball – to generate a sort of random tour. The girls were converned but the artist said something like 'Good toss”

    Not sure about the USS Missouri. I know it was re-commissioned there, but other than that, it has nothing to do with the bay area.

  • Wolcottr

    UFB!! I'd like to build an adjunct one in the Cascades (where I live in Bend, OR) and tour the Cascades and Coastal ranges and connect at Muir Woods. Are Redwood toothpics still forbidden? Totally UFB. Roger Wolcott, Bend, OR
