Wonderful issue! I love the story about your doorman and the fact that he gives Minnie 3 treats each afternoon when you walk her! You make Wonderful observations and write so cogently!

Hi Anne. Friend of TAoN here – very glad Rob alerted us to you. Could you please let John know that when I lived in SF in the mid 90s, our local bodega guy (the Pride Superette on 22nd and Guerrero) was working on a rubber band ball that was at that time about the size of a very large beach ball. According to this, things went pear-shaped: https://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/5679

Fun again and entertaining. I love the very fine line where hobbies can become obsessions. Non geofenced home-built drones is close and cool.

I've lived all over but now a long time in the Midwest. Lots of little towns where there is someone with a hobby that gets out of control. This is one of those silly "local interest" stories they remind on the CBS affiliate once in a while. Warning 3 minutes you don't get back but it is a cautionary tale for your doorman.
