The Outer Richmond District: Where Every Day is Christmas and Every Night is New Year’s Eve – Parking on the “Lawn”

Monday, July 7th, 2014

When SFGov hasn’t the will to enforce the laws and regs it enacts and you ask them about it, a  govt rep will start talking  about “complaint-driven” enforcement.

And that means no enforcement at all.

So feel free to pave over your front yard and then paint your brand-new parking spaces in alternating red and green, you know, to celebrate, Christmas-style:

(Actually, the most exciting time in the Outer Richmond is the evening of the Fourth of July and the morning of the Fifth of July, what with the illegal fireworks and all…)

Oh Outer Richmond:

You’ve got the biggest heart
Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me
Every day is Christmas, and every night is New Year’s Eve
Will you keep on loving me
Will you keep on, will you keep on
Bringing out the best in me?

Mount Sutro Cutty Sark – A Short Skirt Made o’ Fog

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Her cutty-sark, o’ foggy wan
That while a lassie she had worn, 
In longitude tho’ sorely scanty, 
It was her best, and she was vauntie,- 
Ah! little ken’d thy reverend grannie, 
That sark she coft for he wee Nannie, 
Wi’ twa pund Scots, (’twas a’ her riches), 
Wad ever grac’d a dance of witches!

And oh yes, this crib is just perfect for “entertaining dignitaries.” (And then when that’s over, just head up two blocks to Geary to the prostitution sector for a “happy endings” massage to , you know, complete the soiree!)

Sometimes I just don’t know…

And I’m not objecting to the price, I’m objecting to the price for this, this monument to obsolescence at this particular location.Now if you want to drag this thing northeast to a few blocks above California, well then you might have something, Climb Realty.

To reiterate, sometimes I just don’t know…

The way some of our streets are lined up, sometimes you end up staring right into El Sol, particularly if you’re driving west in October during the Evening Drive on a rare cloudless day
