"Cable cars passing on the Hyde Street line atop Russian Hill. Alcatraz can be seen in the distance"
My sender, Arlene, went to San Francisco for the weekend and fell in love with the city, finding the people to be so friendly. She had fun riding the cable cars. I envy her that ride I would love to hang on the side step and swoop down the hill, possibly with my head full of Judy Garland's Trolley Song, "ding ding ding went the trolley..", although technically that is from a different city ("'Meet Me In St Louis'). According to the SF Cable Car site the gripman will alert you to potential hazards on the way down. Don't know what they are, car chases perhaps.
Thank you Arlene , yes I enjoyed the card
