  Four of the Blue Angels fly over our fair city, with perfect weather and clear skies. I *love* the roar of the engines and the wash of the sound waves; others seem to be a bit perturbed.

  Me, clean-shaven and squinting in the bright afternoon sun, looking around to spot the Blue Angels.

At a late lunch I spot a vertical dancer at Hallidie Plaza, near the Powell cable-car turn-around.

  It's time for the 2010 Castro Street Fair. Here's Rose with Lila and Isaac at the corner of Castro & Market Streets, checking out the sound stage, the vendors setting up their wonderfully-smelling food stands, and, assembling inside the orange cones, cheerleaders.

  Today is the Burning Man 2010 - Santa Cruz UnScruz Decompression party, for which I've been tapped to lead the Black Rock Ranger presence.

  I'm standing in the hot sun, but the fog pouring over Twin Peaks is pushing a cold breeze ahead of it. Shiver.

Both of the kids' schools are heading over to the Strictly Bluegrass festival in Golden Gate Park, where M. C. Hammer is playing yet another of his kid-centric shows. I heard Lila's class needed a "small tarp", so I drive the Bacon Sparkle Pony deep into the park, past concentric circles of security, waved on as soon as burners spot the logos, until I can hump the huge 20x50 tarp - still showing a bit of playa dust - onto the field. It was perfect: our class could sit and play and eat in comfort while the other classes stood rather than sit in the just-rained-upon grass.
