If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

In 1991, a mayoral proclamation decreed that October 9 of every year would be Messenger Appreciation Day in San Francisco. October 9 is “10-9” in radio code and means “Say again” or “What?” 10-9 Day is celebrated informally all over the world.

Marion Barry jr also wrote a letter to announce this in 1998″
“After the past few months on a serious deadline at work that finished up yesterday, I decided to venture out to my usual lunch spot in Farragut Square and was welcomed back by the sounds of some John Coltrane and Keith Jarrett playing on a series of small speakers and an iPod set atop the electrical closet. It made a gorgeous day even more so, and I’d like to express some appreciation to this gentleman for taking the time to make the many park lunch-goers’ time away from the office just that much better. You sir, are my hero.”
