During our hiatus, DITHOT and I met up with a long time Noodlemantra….one who’s been with us since the beginning. Her name happens to be fansmom. The “fan” in fansmom was there too (her daughter). We met them on their recent trip to San Francisco. We did our usual Beat Tour together, along with a walking tour of the Haight/Ashbury. That’s where we met for breakfast. I highly recommend this place to eat….Zazie. It was the best breakfast this Noodlemantra has had in forever.



Here are fan and fansmom in front of the Grateful Dead house (click on the thumbnails):

Wonderful photos, thanks so much to everyone for allowing them to be shared here! It's nice to put faces with names.

Unfortunately, I have met only one Zoner in person (DITHOT a few years ago) but would love to meet more of you!

We had a great time and it was really special to meet fansmom, one of the original Noodlemantras, and her daughter! San Francisco is such a wonderful place, even if it is all uphill! :grin:

How lovely to see you all in your meet up and to be able to put faces to the names too - thanks for posting.

:thankyou:

It is a few years now since I was in SF but it was nice seeing you all there and my recognising where you were all at :bigwink:

(Fan you look just like your mum too) :worldhug:

It was very fun indeed. It was so nice to meet someone that I have been conversing with & sharing TZ moments for almost 7 years now. WOW! :-O :goodvibes:

(I had already met up with Luvdepp and DITHOT a few times before. :biggrin: )

And fan is a very nice young lady. You did good there, fansmom. :cool:

Actually.....

I happened to be with 5 other Zoners when it snowed in SF back in March of 2006.



We weren't involved in this car crash, thank goodness. But I gave my fellow Zoners a hair raising experience when we headed up my snow covered driveway the night before.

Thanks for posting those, Liz, and thanks to both of you for the Beat Tour! Not only are our moderators terrific at tidbits and discussion questions, they're pretty good tour guides, too. :applause2:

The picture of us at Vesuvio makes me remember what I did when I took my first sip of the Jack Kerouac cocktail (rum, tequila, orange juice and cranberry juice). Let's just say I should have stirred it a little first. :yikes:

WOW. So cool guys! Love seeing what you all look like. And the ONBC mobile :applause2: What a great idea to tour all those places in San Francisco, would absolutely love to do that someday.

Thanks.
