Watching Cary Grant

Father Goose, Topper, My Favorite Wife - I'm drunk on pink ladies, and I can't go on like this. Crosspatch is almost half complete, but I'm switching genres.

It was perfect walking weather Sunday. We brought our copy of Stairway Walks in San Francisco by Adah Bakalinsky to Telegraph Hill - hidden staircases, footpaths, private gardens, upstairs porches, the murals in Coit Tower where we saw these girls, and outside we filled all the viewscopes with quarters.

I love those murals!

Where are my pictures I wonder?
They remind me of Rockefeller Center.

i'd love to be marion kerby on one of those walks. or nora charles - i bet they'd be carrying along pink ladies in fancy shakers.

We're on a wavelength! I just posted under the title "Topper" meaning something very different, but somewhat screwball.

Hi Mrs Lear - I just got a copy of Stairway Walks for myself. I have long loved Randolph Delehanty's "Ultimate Guide," which is all walks, but Adah's sounds completely enchanting. Thank you for that!
