Dear Augie and Brooks, thank you for teaching me to play hi-lo, perhaps the best game in the history of mankind. (Tell your dinner guests your highest point of the day and your lowest, and now be 4 and 2 years of age. Pretty awesome). Dear Golden Gateway, I’m excited to continue work on that backhand. Dear Carmel-by-the-Sea, thank you for providing the most wonderful weekend getaway. Dear broadcast television, I can’t believe you canceled some of my new favorite shows. But you keep The Bachelorette on? Help a girl out. Dear Golden Gate Bridge, Happy Birthday to you! You’re the most beautiful sight I’ve seen in a long time, but you radiate with light streaming from your sides. And for those that continue to fight for our freedom, many, many thanks to you.
