Greetings from the Golden State

hula wife
Hi. We're in San Francisco this week. It's been a fantastic trip already and we still have two more days left. Recharging batteries, uplifting spirits, soaking in new sights, sounds, and smells. This is an incredible town.

Behold the rare photo of my wife: one that she doesn't hate. Rockin' the 50mm Nikon lens at the Golden Gate Bridge.


  1. Hey Ward...glad you're having fun there. If you haven't checked out Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 yet, it's a great place to take kids. (I had never seen a 2-level carousel before!)

  2. Swing, baby! You're the top dog on the top rung of a tall ladder called stardom (I think that's more or less what Sinatra told George Michael in that old LA Times open letter)

  3. if you dig vietnamese food be sure to check out Tu Lan on Market and 6th. until i started living here is was consistently my favorite memory of this city.

  4. really interesting blog, hope i have the time to read all the old post

  5. Great photo of that cutie wife of yours! Glad you and andrea had fun. I was out there in San Fran in Feb of this year, and I totally agree...it's amazing. :)

  6. If there ever was a Ward
    a Ward to forward onward
    I choose the Ward whose San Francisco
    Cause that's the Ward whose
    greatness boundward.

    - an encouraging poem by a stupid professor.

  7. I'm a little late on all this so excuse me while I recap a bit.
    Crap-a-ronne..."let go from laika"?
    She~eesh. If YOU ain't good enough for em what chance do I have? (put a resume in for them, so at least now I don't have to wonder why I didn't hear a reply, hah)
    Glad to hear you're not letting it get yah down sir. Even MORE excited to find out what a "freelance" Ward Jenkins can put together.
    Shame you're only in Cali. for another couple of days though. Thought maybe you were gonna stick around for Comic Con. Would have loved to run into yah if possible.
    Anyway sir, keep up the awesome.

  8. My wife hates all of her photos, too. I think it's a curse that women suffer from or something. Hope things go well for you on this side of Unexpected. ;)
