My “Perfect” daughter …

She keeps amazing me… secretly made her plot .. got a “Perfect song” … played the music on her piano ..recorded it on garageband .. Placed her Camera .. Sang the song ,,, Perfectly …. shot the video .. added the piano music ,,, and just posted it …. The “perfect” plot was done when we where all outside the house…

Thank you Farah for making me Proud

 

Shrimping in Bubba Gump .. San Francisco

Bubba: Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.

A gem in Bubba Gump .. San Francisco

I got a nice surprise waiting for me in Fisherman”s Wharf of San Francisco .. A Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant ..  I never knew that such a restaurant existed .. and “Forest Gump” is my all time favorite movie and character…. The food was excellent .. shrimps as would you expect..everywhere .. in every hand and mouth … but that was not all…. there was a little gem … a young waitress flowing between the tables with unrelenting energy ,a smile and few hair strands dancing on her face … when she passed by me I noticed that she had an amputated hand .. a brave stump on her left forearm .. very proud and sure … definitely working as hard as my hand … I instantly remembered “Warda” a 9 years old little girl whom I had to surgically amputate her hand after a gangrene 21 years ago when I was junior Orthopedic resident … she may be the same age.. but 18000 miles away…Warda left a scar in my memory and this Waitress left a smile in my heart …

This restaurant surely lived to the legacy of Forest Gump when he said : Stupid is as stupid does

A different look

I took the double decker Hop On Hop Off bus heading to the most celebrated touristic attraction in the San Francisco, the Golden Gate. I stood there trying not to take a picture everyone is taking or took… everyone was looking in one direction except for this proud metal guy …
