On Sunday night of the long weekend, amid revelry involving chocolate pudding, buckets of marbles and unicorn doll birthing,

the bookstore saint of the Mission and owner of the establishment (Adobe, on 16th btwn Valencia and Guerrero), reading (or rather humoring me and posing with) My Antonia, by Willa Cather. He plans to send the book on to his sister in Texas.

Thanks, Andrew!
