On the Way to the Cafe


On Saturday, Nat and I had plans to meet up at one of my favorite cafes to get some work done. But as we were walking over, we saw this:

A whole collection of Bassett Hounds! I can’t even begin to tell you how much of our days Alan and I spend talking about or making up stories involving Bilbo, his parent’s Bassett. I would say a good 10 to 20 minutes of our conversations a day are devoted to him. So I was super excited to see all these fellow Bilbos.

As a point of reference, here is an action shot of Bilbo getting his daily exercise in.

Okay, back to the Bassetts we saw.

It turned out we just so happened to be at the staging area for the beginning of the Easter parade. All the Bassetts were there in support of the Golden Gate Basset Rescue, a very noble organization indeed.

And they’re off! Slowly, but surely. If only they would stop smelling everything along the way.

Another parade highlight was the boy scout troop.

I mean, they just exuded confidence.

Check out the navy blue trumpet!

This brings back memories of being in band.

I had to get a picture of the bunny. He was just so very Donnie Darko.

After the parade, we got even more totally derailed on the way to the coffee shop. We stopped by Therapy (all in the name of market research!) and I was bowled over by this adorable glass jar. (FYI, Bay Area readers, Therapy now sells more home goods!)

After all the pre-Easter shenanigans, we finally made it to the cafe.
Proof of us getting down to business.
