She didn’t work that day, so they got back in his car and went to find bagels and coffee. They ended up at a café in the Haight, not far from the diner where she worked. It was a busy morning. But then, all Saturday mornings were busy in that neighborhood, unless the Dead were in town. You could always tell if the Grateful Dead were playing nearby because the Haight would be empty.

  1. A a San Francisco Saturday morning.
    I have read this before. Clay brought it to life. Mmmmm coffee and Stella d’Oro!

  2. I’d forgotten what a vivid picture of the early 70’s you’d created. As always Clay “translates” it wonderfully.
