FanBoyWonder’s San Francisco Treat

"You don't know San Francisco, Butters. It was the breeding ground for the hippie movement in the 60s. Those hard-core liberals, lesbian activists, and diehard modern hippies young and old. I swore I would never set foot in San Francisco. God help me." –Eric Cartman from South Park’s Smug Alert

FanBoyWonder is about to hop a plane in just a few hours to the Left Coast for five days and four nights in San Francisco for business.

We apologize to the folks who have e-mailed us and/or left comments on the blog—the day job kept us slammed and now we are hitting the road. Hence this is why we have been so light on content this week—we will catch up on our reviews of Life and other content we have backed up…promise.

Thanks for your patience.

Grandpa FanBoyWonder & Brianna The Girl Wonder visit the Pumpkin Patch

Today Grandpa FanBoyWonder and Brianna the Girl Wonder enjoyed a lovely day at the Pumpkin Patch—a local working farm that every Fall hosts a fall festival of homemade amusements like the hill slide and tractor train pull, as well as pony rides for the kids and of course the hayride out to the other side of the farm to pick pumpkins.

Visiting the pumpkin patch with Brianna had been a tradition of ours since she was three-years-old—interrupted last year while our little girl had been “away”—but gladly continued with her home again this year.

Despite the gathering storm forming with her “parents,” today FanBoyWonder and our pride and joy strove to live in the moment.

It was a beautiful Indian Summer day and Brianna had a ball running around the farm…down the slide, riding on horseback, crawling through haystacks, visiting the animals and best of all jumping and jumping and more jumping on the “jumping pillow”—a giant trampoline like rubber pillow about the size of a swimming pool where Brianna and 30 of her friends of all ages bounced to their heart’s content.

As for Grandpa FBW, we went down the slide once, nearly broke our tailbone and then decided on the spot that the ole SHAZAM-bago was acting up again and let Brianna have at the fun-farm stuff.

The big catch of the day was our foray into the pumpkin patch where we secured—and Grandpa carried—two decent sized perfectly orange pumpkins.

We spent the last hour watching our Girl Wonder jump up and down on the Jumping Pillow then a stop at the drive through for a well-earned Happy Mean and here we are home. A good time was had by all.
