The current reigning Empress of San Francisco – Patty McGroin, a small-town girl made good! She spoke at the funeral. We said “hello” to her highness, a son of a local political family, and told her where we were from. She replied “Oh! I’ve heard about your parties…and the mud pit!!” Cool. We are also known as “the faggots south of town.” No contest!

K9 Warning! Sight seen in Mendocino County.

20130214-153327.jpg
Sight seen outside a storage facility in Ukiah, in Mendocino County in Northern California. Back in the day, the NorCal economy was based on logging, plus fishing on the coast, some fruit and nut farming and some sheep and cattle ranching. Now, it’s vineyards in Marin, Sonoma and South Mendocino. Further north, Mendocino, Humboldt and Trinity counties comprise “the Emerald Triangle” – world-famous as a center of 420 culture, and prosperous due to an economy based on Marijuana cultivation.

What does THAT have to do with THIS photo? Let us translate. In the local jargon “This facility is used frequently as a training ground for law enforcement K-9 units” means “Don’t store your inventory here.” Word to the wise, no shit Sherlock and Duh! Enjoy your day and don’t let the doggies getcha!
