Living the San Francisco Dream


Living the San Francisco Dream - #14 - Guess Who Won?

San Francisco – the Cool, Gray City of Love

 Cool Gray City of Love


Last month I offered a copy of this wonderful, intriguing book as a gift to one of my readers. The names of all who requested to be in the drawing (several of you already were reading the book, and passed on the offer ) were put in the drawing and one name was drawn at random.


Kathleen Daniels, your name is the one drawn, so look for the book to arrive shortly after Christmas. I will spare our overworked postal carriers, and put it in the mail after Christmas.

I hope receiving it takes away to sting of receiving our income tax forms which will be arriving all too soon!


If you’re curious about my memories of San Francisco from years past, you can read this blog post, which derived from correspondence and conversation I had with a good friend, as we talked about The Cool Gray City of Love.


Finally, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and very Happy Holidays,

however you choose to celebrate!

Good morning Lottie. San Francisco is such a neat town. I'd like to have the opportunity to spend two weeks sightseeing the area. I've heard a lot of great things about the city.

Hi everyone - sorry for the lack of comments here. For 2 days I couldn't post a comment here--but could elsewhere. Bizarre.

So glad Kathleen won.  

The Christmas tree is absolutely lovely, and I had no idea about the paper cranes, and what a great tradition.  This is one of the reasons San Francisco is a great city.  A

Lottie Kendall I must have missed your post for this book, DRATS!    Your city is so beautiful!

Hi Ron & Alexandra Seigel - the Tree of Hope is gorgeous. This year there is one at Grace Cathedral - nice tradition.

Joan Cox - since you enjoy San Francisco, check out the Cool Grey city of Love at your library, or pick up a copy at Amazon. You'll get new ideas of what to see and where to go on your next visit here.

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Helping make your real estate dreams a reality (Compass) over 5 years ago

Lottie Kendall I will check out my local library, as I know I will be there again, and see more of the City on the next trip, including meeting YOU! 

Posted by Joan Cox, Denver Real Estate - Selling One Home at a Time (House to Home, Inc. - Denver Real Estate - 720-231-6373) over 5 years ago

Most definitely let me know when you plan to visit, Joan Cox
