Funky Foto Contest Week 42


I have no doubt that I’m going to take heat about this one being too easy…especially by my wife Lesley! We’ll see… In this weeks contest I want to know where this tower sits. As much detail as possible, please. This weeks winner will receive a $30.00 gift card to Peet’s Coffee…I know, I know there is no Peet’s in Foster City! You’ll have to drive over to Bay Meadows…I do! It’s time for a Peet’s in Foster City!

OK, I’m off of my soapbox. All the rules of the road are available to view on the left hand margin or on the bar above. The winner and all correct answers will be published on Monday morning. All funny and unfunny jokes, semi rude comments, silly banter and all wrong answers will be published ASAP. Have a great weekend!
