Journal Entry – 9.2.2017 – Morning

It is 7:14 on Saturday morning, September 2nd, 2017.  We are going through a rare heatwave that seems to be occurring more and more here on the coast in Pacifica.  You know it will be a hot day when it is already 72 degrees before the sun has even risen.  There is no wind and there are no clouds in the sky to offer any form of relief.

For many on the coast there is also no air conditioning so locals as well as people from around the Bay will descend on Pacifica beaches today and Highway 1 will be an absolute mess.  Today is also the first day of my son’s first grade Japanese Saturday school.  The will leave in about 45 minutes.

Snoopy’s path behind German lines – World War One Flying Ace

For my Halloween post this year I thought I’d try to figure out where Snoopy – World War One Flying Ace – crash landed in “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.”

When I studied France I was always fascinated by all the small towns that quickly passed by when I was riding the TGV somewhere between Lyon or Besançon and Paris.  I remember stopping at one small town when taking the night train; I do not remember the name of it but that it was around 10:00 PM, only one passenger got off; I remember thinking how quiet it was and how small the town was.  In fact, it might not have been a town at all but a village, although I don’t think the TGV would stop at a village but who knows.
