Reason #63 that I love living in SF:

This morning, in the burgeoning hours of a late-summer heatwave, as I stumbled out to pick up my Sunday Chron, I saw that the little girl from downstairs and her grandfather have claimed the shady sidewalk across the street for a mean game of badminton. Gramps's suitcoat is hanging, abandoned, on the parking meter, while he schools the little one in serves and volleys on the cement sidewalk. She's rocking it, in spite of the incline and the lack of net and the fact that the racket is as big as she is.

Who needs a yard when you've got the city?
