The Yacht! And Good Times in Mill Valley

That Russian yacht you've all read about is really, really, really big. From famed children's book author Nguyen Goldschwartz Jackie Robinson Lopez Woo's summer home in Mill Valley, you can see this obscene creature sitting in Sausalito harbor, attempting to dazzle all the minor creatures surrounding it, before swallowing them whole.

These photos are taken from miles away. This thing must be the size of a cruise ship, but it belongs to one guy and costs $20,000,000 a YEAR just to maintain.

Meanwhile, Lopez Woo's books are being translated around the world. Here are Gaudi in Korean and Georgia in Chinese.

Being invited to a soiree at N.G.J.R.L.W.'s house means you get to see the Most Beautiful Salad in the World again, made by Sue and Alan Perlman and harvested from their house in the avenues. Blond Bombshell was there and several other humans and animals, all from the amazing supply of Lopez Woo's fabulous and well-traveled buddies. Alan brought one of his handmade guitars and played for awhile and then Plotnik sang -- oh, you know which song -- the one about the three greatest cities of the world.

And if you're reading this, Sister Great Dance-Nik: Bombshell and Ducknik and Plottie each remembered: "Remember when Karen was here and we were standing on that deck and she announced she was moving to New York? Can that really be that many years ago?"

Gosh, I thought that house looked a little familiar! Yes, that announcement was made almost exactly 7 years ago to the date. Unbelievable. And I STILL miss you all.
