Oh, yes, I remember her well, good fodder for the papers at that time. We kept our boat at Fisherman's Warf, a ladder & two pilings to tie up to, "what float?"

Later we kept our sailboat at Clipper Yacht Harbor, basin # 2 for ten years. We called it "cyclone alley" in the afternoons during the summer. One chance to get it docked right, one chance.

OK, here is a memory challenge for you. Who was the really big heavy hippie woman that always wore a MuMu and ran a restaurant, in North Beach, I think, then later moved it to Sonoma? Something like "Big Momma"?

Your prize will be determined later.

Senior moment flash? Anita's Galley? or something like that?

Another flash: Juanita Munson? Juanita's Place, Galley? IIRC, a lot of the San Francisco "movers & shakers", like Herb Caen & Melvin Belli used to go there. As a telephone repair man, I went to Melvin Belli's residence, a "Community Apartment", now called Condos, I think. Very interesting person.
