More Signs from San Francisco…

This time around we didn’t get a chance to have a pint at Johnny Foley’s Irish Pub and Restaurant.

I have a full post on Old St. Mary’s Church in Chinatown here.

I’m linking up with Lesley for signs, signs with these signs from my time in San Francisco.

I am now all signed up for my Medicare and have sighed in relief to have that behind me. Now I’m getting ready to talk to my hairstylist about going grey and how she can help me transition. I figure I can always go back to color if grey is too drastic for my mirror to face. TMI? On a brighter note I’ve got some great things put together for our Chinese New Year Super Bowl Party! Here’s a blurry but bright tease…

  1. You have an eye for colorful and interesting signs!!

    Whew! Glad you have the Medicare paperwork/decisions behind you. I know that’s a relief! My own transition-into-grey saga was a few years ago, but I have never regretted it. I didn’t regret coloring it all of those years either. It was just time to move on. It’s a personal thing. Good luck!

  2. I had to look up the “..observe the time and flee from evil” quotation. I wonder how many of those men frequenting the nearby brothels read the sign?

  3. Love the signs and know some will read and take heed even if they never publicly acknowledge this. God’s words do not go out in vain , even if only one person reads and heeds.
    Looks like you are having so much fun.

    I am enjoying my white and gray hair and think I have finally found a beautician who will help the transition best. I never want to go back to dying my hair again. It was failure in vanity , trying to keep my quickly growing hair dark. The skunk-line appeared faithfully within the week of coloring every time. I am embracing my silver hair with joy. Looking forward to seeing how you fare with this new venture.

  4. What a lot to see and do in San Francisco! I look forward to visiting one day.
    As one who has ’embraced the grey’ I can say that it is certainly uncomplicated!! I find that my skin tone has gradually adjusted too.

  5. The Goodwill sells stuff on eBay nowadays and gets premium prices; nothing “thrift” about it. It is for a good cause though.The LDS Deseret Industries thrift shops on the other hand practically gives stuff away. I get spoiled and have to really rein in impulse buying when fabulous stuff is going for a buck, and still wince knowing the “cause” behind the store.

    I can’t wait to see you sunlit silver! Look out world! I am curious: why can’t a hair dresser just bleach down to white, or at least high light dark hair to ease the transition? I never colored my blond hair, which was pale blond until I had kids, then it deepened to a strawberry blond then slowly went white. No grey…just white.
