The No Whine List Day 7

Wow, it's not easy not to whine. For one thing, it's Whine-ter. It's cold out. It is very easy to whine about being cold in whine-ter, except it is once again around 50 with but a few clouds in the sky. Wah wah wah, we are suffering so. Also, it's SO hard to park at the Legion of Honor, where we went this morning to take a fabulous docent tour led by our friend Virginia, except we had Liz and her handicap placard and that ruined everything because we pulled right in next to the front door. Wah wah wah, parking was easy.

And then there's that view of the Golden Gate and the blue water and the green pines and Rodin in the courtyard.

Surely there'd be some officious guard insisting that we remain 18" from the paintings, or an off-putting bunch of fat tourists with cameras getting in our way, or, for SURE, an overpriced lunch at the cafeteria. But, wouldn't you know, the food was great, it wasn't too expensive, the tour was fabulous, we were practically the only ones in the museum and no one cared if we got close or not.

This might be the best I can do for a whine right now: there was nothing to whine about wah wah wah.

I can finally stop whining about not being able to finish one of those darn Rows Gardens puzzles! Corey and I finished one of the three you gave me while flying back to LA from Seattle. :) There's nothing like hurtling through the air in a steel tube at a few hundred mph to really get our brains a-workin'!
