I am Sam.
Sam I am.
Here to report that we are back from our long intermission.
First I will tell you about Mommy's condition:

She had another "nerve burning" procedure to her back
and has spend some time lying on an ice pack.
Thank you all for your prayers and purrs!
We appreciate all the comments you sent her.

Mommy is feeling much better today
and much of the pain has gone away.
 Now here are some pictures from our "beans" adventure.
We stayed home with our wonderful cat sitter!

Tatum & Sloane with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.
 Cute sea lions & pigeons (I don't think the "sea lions" look like lions at all!)
 Mommy made friends with Petunia & Daisy:
 Boudin sourdough bread is the BEST! 

 These lucky "fevvers" love the bread! 

A "Painted Lady" (aka lovely Victorian house) 
 Palace of Fine Arts

Do YOU see the kitty in the window?: 
 Mommy met "Samantha" on the street.  She was walking on a leash.  She is a Scottish Fold kitty!

 Good Grief!  They let Mommy drive the cable car!
 The Buena Vista - famous for Irish Coffee! (see the Cable Car?)
 Mommy says these are YUMMY!
 Another pretty fevver with the Bay Bridge in the background:
 Sloane & Tatum with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background:

 View from Cliff House:

Sloane in front of the famous Chocolate shop: 
 Mommy loves this song:
A wonderful time was had by all!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

We are glad your mum is feeling a lot better since her procedure.
Those pictures are lovely. Our dad wants to go to San Francisco and now he wants to go even more.

Thanks for the update on your mom or mum as those handsome Devonshire cats say! Nerve burning sounds scary but we be glad the procedure helped!

Teri misses her visits to SF to see family there and yes, that Boudin bread is yummy! Thanks for sharing the trip with us, complete with a kitty or two!

Sam yoo am,
cute rePAWter Sam.
Fanks for giving us a "mommy" update,
for it is a very thoughtful trait.
It allows us to send some healing for her back,
'cos she was VERY brave, lying on an ice pack.
We are happy that she is better today,
And hope that nasty pain, STAYS AWAY!

Love Milo and Alfie xx

Those are such good pictures of your trip. What a good time you had. We are also really glad to hear that Mom is feeling a little better. Nothing worse than a sore back. Mom has one of those but then she has one of everything. Good to see you again. Take care.
