I am pro-military — especially, pro US Navy — my father served 25 years of his life contributing to making America Great. The US Military, especially, the US Navy, can do NO wrong in my eyes. I always vote for increasing the military budget; and, I always vote against cutting back our military spending.
Anyway, every year, since we built our brand new building at The Top Of Nob Hill, construction completed on 2014, we have Fleet Week Party on my penthouse deck.
Then, when our newly adopted family member, “Doc” (Charles Scott, M.D.) moved into his house, one house up from ours, we combined our Fleet Week party; and, we are the hottest ticket in San Francisco at this event of the year.
We pay for professional bartenders, this year, four of them; we pay for all the alcohol and sodas for about 80 guests; and, we use to provide food, but we now changed it to a pot-luck; because, the clean-up was just too labor-intensive for me, my sis, Irene Faustino, and Doc.
Now, through my connections with an admiral of the US Navy, via my father, I went to the Officer’s Club at Fort Mason, the St. Francisco Yacht Club, or was the Admiral’s guest on one of his US Navy boats — usually, always an aircraft carrier — I’ve viewed the Blue Angels from the tower and vulture’s row of the USS Enterprise, USS “Connie” Constellation, the USS Carl Vinson, and the USS Abraham Lincoln — go VF-213! (The navy personnel affectionately call their ships, boats.)
While those were great an awesome experiences, nothing beats watching the Blue Angels and the Parade Of Ships than my penthouse deck — it IS the best seat in the house; and, if you ever get invited to my crib for Fleet Week, you WILL unequivocally agree — no doubt about it!
