It was 6:30 a.m. Monday morning when I went out, and 7:30 a.m. when I finished, but I got home way too late to get these up (The dog insisted on going to DP.) Now, it is Tuesday, 58° and headed to 68°. Details for today and the next ten days are here.

It was the dog’s idea to take this block. He has a thing for Facebook.

I used to stare out my window at this block when I first moved to San Francisco. The dog didn’t exist in those days. Neither did Facebook.

What more can we say but Go Giants! (Couldn’t have said that in October of 1977; the team was long gone.)

Mark to Mark: Fortress Z is taking forever to build. By the time it’s finished, the Mission will no longer be cool place to hang out. Don’t wait to move in to document your block.

Meanwhile, here’s to your donation to fight Ebola.

Details on how to participate in documenting the Mission waking up are here. You see all of the photo essays here.
