Monty and a bridge

Ruthie’s adorable wiener dog mix, Monty, is a little firecracker. It’s astounding that he stood still long enough for me to take this photo.

Quick through-the-windshield snap of the Sacramento Tower Bridge. We had a late lunch of yummy Mexican food there at Tres Hermanas.

PhD people’s backyard

The house Brian and his two grad student roomies share has this backyard that’s looks like it’s been growing wild for twenty years resulting in some of the biggest rose bushes I’ve ever seen. Brian and Ruthie have recently tamed a good chunk of it and planted a little garden for the skunk garden gnome to wander around in.

(Don’t) meet Brian

I flew out to SFO to meet my pal Brian, an initially camera-shy, smarty-pants PhD candidate at UC Davis. We had some decent tapas at Esperpento in the Mission district before driving out to Davis. It’s a cute neighborhood kinda joint, but it doesn’t really compare to the yumminess that is Estadio.
