Where Have the Signs Gone?

Where Have the Signs Gone?

Hi. I’m Walking Bob and I was reflecting on the difference between this city I spend so much time walking around in and other cities where I drive through and work.  Just before the election, the front yards and roadways in all of these communities were blanketed with signs supporting this or that candidate or proposition.  […]

Hi!  I’m walking Bob and I was wondering if I could walk from Davis to San Francisco, or at least get there without driving my car.  It turns out it’s pretty easy.  I walk two blocks from my house to catch the UniTrans A line, get off at the Amtrak stop, hop on a train […]

The Dancers in the Garden

Hi. I’m Walking Bob. I was about three miles into my walk and once again I found myself in Central Park. My compassionate friend, David, was at his usual place on the corner, but this time I decided I’d like to just sit for a while in the herb garden. I enjoy “Flutter and Hum”, […]
