Today was the first time hanging out with Mikey in 3 months. He cut off all his hair. It was a nice day catching up on all the sf street gossip. Buddha is looking great. He wants to move back to Washington. 

I found Mikey before I left San Francisco. He was curled up with Buddha in the BART station just where I thought he would be. Buddha now has to wear a muzzle 24 hours a day and he doesn’t look pleased about it. I said goodbye to Mikey and asked him to take care of himself. I’ll be back in August.

in the past week, Mikey got a new Tattoo: “Irish Pride” across his neck.

Mikey broke his thumb beating up a guy who was smoking crack and in front of a bunch of kids. He told me he dragged the guy around the corner so the kids didn’t have to see him beating up the guy.
