*A WHOLE NOTHER THING:
A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

Last weekend I visited my son and his girlfriend down in the Bay Area.

Had a blast.

We biked across the Golden Gate Bridge, but it almost didn't happen.

I almost didn't make it onto the bridge, let alone across.

Acrophobia kicked in. There's a 10 inch opening at the bottom of the railing and I had to stop. Bikes use the west side of the bridge; peds the Bay side, so going north, we were on the inside, next to car traffic. That's the only thing that saved me. I memorized my son's bicycle seat because I couldn't look at anything else.

When we got to the north side of the bridge I told 'em we'd have to find another way back cuz there was no way in Hades I could go back on the outside.

 We rode into Sausalito and took a ferry back.
