FBOW, most of the lawns are gone, paved over long ago to make room for more car parking…

One searches and one finds a bit on Hoodline to explain the mystery.

This is What the Fleet of UBER Self-Driving Cars in The Richmond Looks Like

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

So I see one UBER self driver way out there in the Avenues, so no biggee, but here comes another right behind.

Say, maybe if these self driving cars drive all over town, they can memorize the place, the Google’s rides have done down in Mountain View and the way the dinosaurs tested the electrified fences in Jurassic Park.

Here’s the sked for 2017.

One notes that Embarcadero, the original Sunday Street, didn’t make the cut for 2017. Some businesses at the Fish Wharf didn’t like SS, but I don’t know the story…

I looked for a pellet or a BB (beebee, a little spherical piece of metal) on the ground, but saw nothing.

Bee(bee) on the look out.
