When a picture is definitely worth a thousand words – Half Dome on March 19th of the last five years.
I’m working now on what is turning out to be a major addition to my Bridges menu and will be announcing its completion very soon.
But meanwhile, just to get a new post up, there’s great news: I’ve learned that my number will be coming up very soon for an apartment in that senior housing complex for which i’ve been twisting on the waiting list for several years.
What’s happened is that when i updated my application and told them that my income has jumped quite a lot since i started having to take mandatory withdrawals from my IRA, i learned that, while my income is still low enough to get into the complex, the additional income has qualified me for one of the better units.
And since most people on the waiting list don’t have sufficient income for these units, i’m now very near the top of the list, which is an excellent thing since the luxury apartment i’m now in is gobbling away at my savings in a most horrifying fashion.
Meanwhile, here’s a lovely Leucospermum in a flowerbed near Castro and 21st Street.
