A few months ago, I walked with a meetup group through San Francisco and encountered a number of "hidden" staircases. Well, they weren't actually hidden if you knew where to look for them.
The picture here is of the "Farnsworth Steps" on Farnsworth Lane. It was named after Philo Farnsworth who was one of the first inventors of the television back in the late 1920's. Mr. Farnsworth used to live at the end of this stairway.
You have your choice of walking off your food at a number of San Francisco stairways listed here on the sisterbetty.org website.

I don't mean to pry, but some of the items left at the Moving Wall were quite touching like these teddy bears.

The note says she has been missing him for 39 years!

These photos were taken from last year's Veteran's Day Parade.
This motorcycle rider in the fancy patriotic hat is part of the Patriot Guard Riders who participated in the parade.
- Attend military funerals and show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.
- Shield the mourning family and their friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors.

He is, Scott Weaver, an artist and creator of toothpick sculptures like the hat he is wearing.
He doesn't just build toothpick structures, he builds them in such a way that you can roll ping pong balls through them from one end to the other.
What started as a school project in the 4th grade, it eventually morphed into this unique piece 36 years and 103,487 toothpicks later . His teacher would be proud.

According to internet sources, it was built in 1894, and was the place to be to buy almost anything from produce to slaves. It was refurbished in 1989 and now sells mostly crafts.
There is so much history here and unfortunately, I did not know about them until I did research for this blog post.
(Note: My first Falmouth post was on October 7th and can be found here).
Have a good weekend,
