Recycled Greyhound ~ Saturday, September 14, 2019

The high cost of housing in our area has led some people to live in RV's and camper trailers. Occasionally you see an old school bus repurposed for housing. This is the first time I've seen an old Greyhound bus put to this use.

Garage Sale Find ~

I admit I am unable to pass by a garage sale (or even piles of free junk) without taking a look, and this recently paid off when I found some interesting old postcards and pictures.

This one had a message on the back, though I think Jay could have put a bit more effort telling "Babe" what he was up to beyond just mentioning that he saw some boats!

There was one old photo of a small boat--maybe also somewhere in B.C.? Sure looks like the Pacific Northwest--might even be Upper Arrow Lake, on the shore of which sits Revelstoke.

Another Fremont Comic Shop ~ Sunday, September 08, 2019

I posted about a new comic shop by Centerville Station a few weeks ago. There is actually another comic shop less than a block away, called Chris's Comics, which seems to have been there for years, but it's kind of hidden on a back street (basically in an office building behind Wienerschnitzel). 

We paid the place a visit today and it's a pretty nice shop.

Apples ~ Saturday, September 07, 2019

This tree was about a foot-and-a-half tall when we moved in, but has grown up nicely. Some years we hardly get any apples but this season was good.

The other day at Millbrae we watched a long BART train split into two short ones, one going out of service and one which we got to ride.
