Saturday August 1, 2015_July reading_Saturday August 1, 2015_July reading_Begger’s Ride is the third in the Beggers trilogy which I started last month. This is a reread and totally worth the time. The bottom book, Offbeat, represents my time, a few years ago, when I was all about the Kerouac and Ginsberg et al. and when I bought the book. Still, very much worth the read especially since we supplemented it by watching Daniel Radcliffe’s portrayal of Ginsberg’ in Kill My Darlings, at the same time. My Kindle represents the book Mr Penumber’s 24-Hour Bookstore which, especially since it takes place in San Francisco and New York, I loved. A mystery!!!
Sunday August 30, 2015_40th Annual SV Pride Parade_Earlier in the day, which was sunny, breezy, and perfect, the mayor, Mr Lucardo, and several councilmembers, welcomed the crowd. This shot is of a Santana cover band playing Oye como va most excellently.
San Jose Fire Fighters Local 230's very cool Sharks fire truck, in honor of our ice hockey team, the Sharks, was happily admired but never used.
Eventually I got bored, we were there all day because Lauren got a little job working security for Stage Two so, I went a'wandering for a bit around downtown, a building reflecting itself and a sculpture swooping.
Monday August 31, 2015_West Valley College_Administrative Justice building with Tardis_Lauren is considering Intelligence Analysis as a possible career choice, her BS in Psychology would actually be useful, and so, to that end, she is taking, because it's close and because they actually have a few classes that are relevant, two classes, Intro to Administrative Justice and Criminal Investigation at West Valley. Because I have nothing better to do, I'm taking Survey of 20th Century Art which meets at the same time as her Criminal class. Should be freakin' fun!!!
