I remember going to a meeting at City Hall then coming back to catch up with Terry and Dad, having dinner at Osteria, unless it was the other way around and I ate a quick bite, went to meeting, left and found them still there. Our fourth wheel was Phyllis the dress seller, whose shop is two doors down.

Exactly one year ago, Dad's 90th birthday, Lin escorts Dad and Michael our friend, waits in the ready. Some of us did shots.

This is one of my favorite photos, that was stored in my phone for about a year until just now: Dad was a regular at Stanford Theatre; he would pretty much catch every show, sometimes he’d see the same program twice. I would say he went there about 100 times in recent years, and I met him there or caught him there about 10 times (which parallels our experience going to Niners games together, I describe above):
