FWIW (AKRON).. 194.. March 20, 2012

You get .. or you do NOT get .. the below photos .. smiles .. cap ..


The street corner .. in Akron .. a city in the State of Ohio .. in the United States of America ..


And below you have photos of THE HOME .. at the above street corner ..  at 855 Ardmore Avenue ..  


By the way MY MAN Chad has a nice car .. what fun riding in his convertible .. when the temperature is in the 80s and the sun is out .. Chad and I together seeing ALL of the important historical sights in Arkon .. Ohio .. in the United States of America ..




OH YES .. YES INDEED .. THERE REALLY ARE TWELVE (12) STEPS .. COUNT THEM ..


NEXT door to THE HOME at 855 Ardmore Avenue .. is a second building .. in this building are housed immense 'archives' .. and the gift shop which used to be in the basement of 855 Ardmore Avenue .. has been moved into this 'archives' building ..


Then we have the MAYFLOWER HOTEL .. located in downtown Akron where Bill reached out for another 'like sufferer' to talk to ..








THE TELEPHONE AND THE CHURCH DIRECTORY .. in the Lobby of THE MAYFLOWER HOTEL in AKRON in OHIO.. just in case you are interested .. 


Yes I know .. the below photo is a little 'blurry' .. but you can see the name of .. THE REVEREND.. Walter F. Tunks .. in the U.S. State of Vermont .. "Taking a 'tunk' " meant "Taking a walk" .. so William Griffith 'W' selected him .. to call .. and The Reverend Walter Tunks gave him ten telephone numbers to call .. and 'we were on the way' ..


AND THE REST IS HISTORY .. 


Anonymity IS the spiritual foundation .. smiles.. cap..

FWIW (APPLE VALLEY).. 193.. March 13, 2012

From last Thursday .. March 8th .. until early Monday Morning .. March 12th .. I visited friends in the town of Apple Valley located in Southern California East of Los Angeles and North of the City of Ontario on the West Coast of the United States of America .. so I snapped a few photos to show some of you what the HIGH DESERT OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA looks like .. it is VERY INTERESTING AND VERY PLEASANT ..

So here we all go for a short walk in the HIGH DESERT .. elevation about 4,000 feet or 1,300 meters ..

I walked about three miles (5 kilometers) .. straight ahead in the distance in the below photo you will see a hill that we will get close to as I continue walking along the road ..



Do you suppose that the home on-top-of-the-hill just may be an EXPENSIVE home ..



One of MANY beautiful homes I passed walking along the road ..


A close-up photo of one form of Desert Cactus ..

A close-up photo of the ROCKY landscape you see all around you ..


In the below photo you see .. NOT a home .. but a MANSION ! ..

Yet another beautiful home ..


A second close-up photo that again shows you how ROCKY the landscape really is ..

There you have .. NOT a walk-in-the-woods .. but a short walk-in-the-HIGH-DESERT area of Apple Valley .. California ..

FWIW (SAN FRANCISCO).. 191.. March 7, 2012

OH MISS SAN FRANCISCO .. 

"TO BE WHERE LITTLE CABLE CARS CLIMB HALFWAY TO THE STARS!"











WHAT CAN I SAY .. TO THINK THAT I ACTUALLY LIVED IN SAN FRANCISCO FOR OVER  THIRTY YEARS ..

FWIW (SAN FRANCISCO).. 190.. March 7, 2012

I don't quite know how to start this post .. I will quote MISS SAN FRANCISCO saying to MISS HONG KONG .. the following words .. 

"Bobba Caps has been telling me about your legs MISS HONG KONG .. well .. being age 75 Bobba Cap's memory is suspect .. obviously he has forgotten that I TOO HAVE LEGS !" ..

Will you all just look at MISS SAN FRANCISCO ..
