• I have come to visit.

    This picture is from 2007 and in them [sic] days I wouldn't have thought twice about pulling myself up the staircase and ringing the doorbell of this/these stranger's/strangers' house. Times have changed in the U.S. and nowadays there's a good chance I'd…

  • Now enter some bears.

    Oh my gosh what in the h. are those awful beasts doing. And how did it end up getting displayed as a Christmas decoration. Anyhow happy birthday Jesus, I love you even if nobody else does. ----------------------- In Belpre, Ohio, on January 5th, 2009,…

  • Smiling dinosaur ride.

    I saw this cute thing open-mouth-grinning at me from way over, clear over on the other side of the park, and I trundled clumsily through the snow to get over here to it, I am clumsy whenever there are more than a couple of inches of snow. Look at her lit…


  • Tree gets in front of fenced in yard around midwestern house with diamond shapes.

    I don't know how it happened but that's what happened. Wouldn't it be fun to imagine a dog playing outdoors in the yard inside the fence. I wish I could be a real estate photographer but I haven't got a car! :( :( :( :( ----------------------- In nor…

  • Whole bunch of chaotic activity: Will I be able to walk or will I have to stop & wait for a hole to open up that I can pass through.

    Well I guess I'm about to find out. As for that man's light blue shorts, I've got a pair just exactly like em but right now they're in my laundry hamper so I can't slip into em! ----------------------- In south Minneapolis on May 10th, 2009, a Cinco de…

  • Minneapolis outdoor flower & tree show.

    All the sights & smells of a home & garden expo @ a convention center, in a convenient backalley slab of luncheon loaf. I bought 2 tickets! ----------------------- In south Minneapolis on May 11th, 2009, in an alley between Pleasant Avenue South and Gr…


  • Albuquerque fur maintenance and storage; I wouldn't've thought there'd be a need for fur storage in Albuquerque because the residents wear their furs all year around?

    All year around they sport furs, they turn out in furs. I read where Albuquerque's the city that's the biggest into furs in all of the U.S. But definitely a good ads lesson here: For ads, choose pix in which potential customers'll maybe recognize either…

  • Downwardly we see: Albuquerquetian landscaping wad @ sidewalkside. Shake it!

    I wish I knew how to figure out what the kind of plant is but I guess I'm just completely helpless. If anybody knows the name I'd love to hear it!, but still I'll feel really stupid for not knowing how to find out for myself. I wish I could see a bunch…

  • Cinderella Castle @ The Magic Kingdom!

    Naw/nah I am just kiddin it's a public art in a plaza next to Carbone's Pizza in famous downtown Rosemount Minnesota. Here would look like a nice spot for spectacular perfect weddings to happen at, if somebody'd first come thru and yank up the weeds from…


  • Them boys.

    These men have beautiful eyes but they look like fairly typical fellows — each of them kind of reminds me of me in some way or another. I hope no kinds of emotional disputes will ever erupt among them, or between any pair of them. -----------------------…

  • Tries to look like bird manure.

    Ha ha *splat* — Do you like snow? Do you like to look at weeds in cracks? But anyhow the words "tries to look like bird manure" are maybe starting to give me a halloween costume idea! ----------------------- In south Minneapolis on October 10th, 2009,…

  • Contemp bldg landscaping trend.

    The only times I like the way it looks is when it gets a very particular depth of fresh snowfall upon it, very early in winter when some of the flowers are still trying to bloom. Some years those specific circumstances don't ever align! ----------------…


  • Hydrangeas in pain.

    The reason coldsnaps exist is to sadden people. ----------------------- In south Minneapolis on October 10th, 2009, on the east side of 11th Avenue South, north of East 19th Street. ----------------------- Library of Congress classification ideas: SB4…

  • Don's old memories.

    Takes me back to all of the smells of working-class staff lounge fridges. I hope Don will always get meals the size he needs, and will never need to scrounge around on the ground for edible scraps, all throughout the entirety of the remaining duration of…

  • In Minneapolis, the male model in a low-cut top gets Sprite blasting out of his ears.

    In my family when I was a child Sprite was the beverage we drank when we got stomach illnesses, so I understand the feeling of having Sprite blast out from places where it's not supposed to usually. Some people might have similar memories about 7-Up but…


  • Hey how old's that fance! [sic!]

    Here's my guess: 23 years old as of this writing. I'm gonna say it got erected in 1986. But who'll tell me whether or not I'm right? Could somebody forward this pic to somebody who knows! Also fance is my idea for the new English word for a chainlink…

  • Piece of pumpkin does an impression of somebody's tire.

    Hey drive the car forward & back overtop of it a bunch of times, so the pumpkin can know how much we want to hurt it. I want it to feel the car on top of it, bearing down onto it. ----------------------- In south Minneapolis on November 1st, 2009, on t…

  • I think Americans are weird about pumpkins.

    To me it seems like some people use their pumpkins for something to take their anger out onto. I like the smells of the insides of pumpkins!, but that one's gone mouldey so I didn't press my nose inside it. ----------------------- In south Minneapolis…
